The od spec for bar is usually not slip fit accurate or is extruded bar
that round, so it will likely need turned to fit. The standard mill
spec for that size is +/- 0.024". Might be lucky tho with the
combined tube and bar mill tolerances.
All of the 3" od x .125" wall tube couplers I have have turned od.
