    Crack in Barrel?

    I got a steal of a deal on an old FEG hi power clone. To me it sure looks like the barrel has a crack. In searching for a replacement the only picture I can find anywhere shows a line in the exact same spot. Does anybody know if this line is normal or crack? Any input is appreciated.

    Nevermind...I just looked up and saw some browning barrels that had the same line.

    The "crack" is a perfectly straight line, and it lines up exactly with the edge of the barrel lug (I think that's what it's called). I bet it's a machining mark. It's in exactly the same place on both barrels, and they both line up perfectly with the edge of the lug. I vote machining mark.

    Just checked my FEG Hi-Power. Has that line too.

    Ditto, Hipowers have that distinctive barrel mark.
