Thin Barrel wall on a 1911?

I have several handguns and it seems like the thickness of the barrel wall is the thinest on my 1911. It's a Springfield Loaded Target model. Is there a reason the barrels are thin? Does this mean they are prone to wear out faster than other guns. Also I wonder how this might affect accuracy.

both parties' claims are unverified.

No it is fine you can run more rounds through that "thin" 1911 barrel than many of the other platforms.

It's simply that the added material isn't needed to contain the pressure. It's good steel. Why add material that isn't needed for the working pressures of the cartridge ?
