I've heard of a tip for the SIG Sauer barrel to lessen the slop in it's fit, improve it's accuracy.
The tip involves wrapping the barrel with a bit of electrical tape but where?

You should wrap the tape on the INNER brass barrel. See this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKUYn8fyVHk

Thanks for the YouTube video, I now recall seeing that the tape was actually wrapped around the barrel not the sleeve that the barrel fits into.


And I found this helpful video; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n31XT18WrsM

He uses a mixture of a graphite powder and grease. Personally, I don’t like a graphite powder because it smears all over and makes everything dirty. That’s why his pistol is always dirty and he must clean it constantly. :wink:
Instead, I use White Lithium Grease from a tube for lubricating the slide rails on the frame (just a very thin layer). Always clean and works perfectly.
