Browning Model 1900 Pistol Rebarrel

Browning Model 1900 Pistol Rebarrel
The barrel of the Model 1900 is threaded into the frame, and Coffield says it can be quite difficult to remove. Parts aren't all that common, so be careful when attempting removal.

Question: I have a Browning Model 1900 .32ACP pistol with a very bad barrel. Due to corrosive ammunition and the lack of care at some point in the past, the barrel is severely pitted. I want to rebarrel the pistol, but I am confused about how the barrel is attached to the frame. Is it pressed in and pinned like the Makarov?

Answer: No. The barrel on the Browning Model 1900 pistol is threaded into the frame and at times can be very difficult to remove without damage to the frame. If you attempt to remove it, be very careful!
