With all the people out there that replace their factory barrels with fancy ones, i would think that if you post a wanted ad with exactly what you want on some different sites something should turn up.

I know there are some members here who have swapped out barrels.

Yep.  Barrels are sold all the time.  I usually see them around the 75 to 80 dollar mark.  However, the barrel and receiver are one piece so it will need to go through an FFL.

Or private sale if you do it within state in most states.

If you don't get any offers here, contact one of the businesses Timothy posted.  They do the barrel swaps, and I'd bet they have a supply.  I know MB has his vampire red set up, so he might even have an old one ... It might even come with an autograph  ;D

That is not correct.

What Tactical Solutions sells are barrel/receiver combinations, and are in fact, serialized items and require a NICS transfer. Where you are partially correct is in that the factory barrel can be separated from the receiver, it rarely is, because it is a gunsmith task. While I'm sure there are replacement barrels out there, I've never seen one. The TacSol ones are one piece and cannot be separated.
