You won't have a feeding issue even with a top strap over the magazine area IF the extractor is tuned correctly. The extractor must be able to hold a round to the slide breech face, as the slide travels to the rear, so that the ejector can get a good hit on the empty to kick the empty case out of the gun on the same trajectory with every shot. Feeding issues are commonly caused buy extractors that don't only touch the case at the exact junction of the case body and the rim and no where else. The extractor must be able to hold a loaded round to the breech face of the slide even with gentle shaking of the removed slide.

Bullet Bob,

The BOP stands for Bullseye Optic. This style of Clark's own barrel has the

"top strap" on it which overhangs the slide. The design is similar to that of a

Smith & Wesson factory barrel.

See it here at: https://clarkcustomguns.com/product/...-match-barrel/

Turtle1903:

There use to be a sign in a hot rod shop years ago. It basically said:

"How fast do you want to go. How much money you got"

You want max performance then it is going to cost max dollars. Such is life!

Very often you get better performance from more expensive parts. The shorter Clark barrel probably would not be a viable product if S&W would provide a regular supply of their 5 inch barrel with red dot optics compatibility. The standard S&W 7 inch barrel is a better choice for sights as it gives a long sight radius for open sighting, increasing your sighting accuracy and ultimately you overall accuracy.

Bottom line to me is the S&W 7 inch barrel makes sense for open sights and the 5 inch barrel makes sense for red dot optics. Sights on a 5 inch barrel on a S&W Model 41 makes no sense to me...but what do I know?

Turtle1903, I like that Clark barrel and the 25 yd group even more. There’s a lot of rifle shooters that would be overjoyed to get those results.
