KKM makes a drop in barrel for Glocks that reportedly gives a pretty decent accuracy improvement over the stock barrel, though I've never used one, so I can't tell you.

I do understand your dilemma. I have a Sig P226 that's extremely accurate. I don't notice a big difference between the Sig and my Glock until I get to 15 yards and beyond. At 15-25 yards, the Sig is significantly more accurate than my Glock. This despite the fact that my Glock is fairly accurate.

Personally I think it depends on which gun you like better. If that's the HK, stick with the HK until you get more proficient with it. If it's the Glock, just replace the barrel.
I do have a Storm Lake 40-9mm in my Glock G27.
And it's just as much a nail driver as my H&K P30 40.
I actually shoot the Glock a little better.

I don't shoot competitively.
But if I did, I'd send my favorite gun to Jarvis or Bar-Sto
for a professionally fitted competition target barrel.
Not sure if you have many options with a HK P30?
But a Glock G17? No Problemo

Play with Power
