I am looking for a part called the hood? Is this it? I calling a maching shop as I need it reduced from a .486 to a .346 and want to make sure they know what has to be done.

Just think about what needs to fit into what.
When fitting a barrel the whole top,sides,and hood shood fit in to the slot provided in the slide slot .

Is it the length or the width of the hood not fitting?

Correct.

Hoods on aftermarket barrels are often made slightly oversized on the sides and rear so they can be fitted exactly to your slide.

Not sure. Going to order the barrel. Wanted to make sure someone could "fix it". All I was told is mine is .346 and the new one will be .486.I assume it's width though.

Well you will know when you get the barrel.
I assume it is a match barrel that come oversized like described by the post above.

Not sure of your term. Its a factory barrel from Smith & Wesson.
