Ok, so here goes with the question from the newbie. What does it mean when I see "match barrel" or "match grade trigger?" I see this from time to time on various gun manufacturer websites and there is little or no explanation as to what makes that a selling point. Can anyone chime in with an answer on this? Much appreciated in advance.
