The answer from the manufacturers (as reported by myself and others) is "yes."

The result of using one of these barrels, for me, has been no different than using it in any other Glock pistol.

You don't need a different barrel to shoot lead through a Glock.

Please elaborate on what you mean by your comment. I always thought that Glock barrels leaded and created unsafe pressures.

Also, just read an article on the Glock Gen 4 that answers a lot of the questions in this thread. http://www.westernshooter.com/2010/0...-4-review.html

Anyone know if the 20 will be made in Gen 4?

Edit:
Found my answer...
Quoted from Western Shooter Blog Archive;

"As of right now, February 2010, the Glock GEN 4 is only available in the G22 and G17. The G22 is chambered in .40 S&W and is considered a “standard” size Glock. The G17 is chambered in 9mm (9×19mm) and is also considered “standard” size. Glock is planning on releasing the GEN 4 in all of their models. As far as time frame goes, they will release the G19 and G23 this fall. The next models have yet to be determined and I was told their release will be based on demand."

Would it be stupid to assume that it could be up to a year, and possibly even longer before I even see a Glock 20 (10mm) released in Gen 4? Or am I just being a pessimistic whiny little b****? I would love to buy a Gen 4 20 today, but the gosh darn thing doesn't sound very promising for my immediate future.

So what? That doesn't mean it can't be done safely.

Any updates as to when Glock may be coming out with the 20/29 in Gen4?

Does anyone know if they will stop making Gen3 Glocks now that the Gen4 came out? I heard rumors that it is a direct replacement then I've had people mention that the Gen4 is just an addition to the Gen3.

Just curious to see if anyone knew or not.

Don't know if they will stop making the gen 3 but I do know I ordered a new one Thursday and it should be here tomorrow. Personally, I love the gen 3 guns and really don't have a desire for a gen 4. But hey, I'm an old guy and not interested in change! JMHO

Did Glock make any changed on Gen4 guns since they been made? there are some reports of poor reliability in gen4 guns (any truth to that?) and others said that Glock fixed the issue (how??) If that's true that glock made changes to the gen4's what was changed and what date/SN guns are 'safe' to buy?

Dude! Do some reading. The only change I'm aware of post-production on the Gen4 guns is a few revisions of the new dual spring recoil assemblies. Some people had function issues with the original dual spring assemblies with "weak US market ammo".

It appears that the latest Gen 4 Model 19 spring is 0 4 2. I just purchased one with the test fire date as 6/24/11 and it had the 0 4 2 spring in it.

Glock also changed extractor design about the same time. They also started including them with gen3s but it was introduced when the gen4s were introduced. So, that's why some people are changing to Lone Wolf extractors to see if that helps. Thinking is maybe the extractor is contributing to the problem by not extracting!

Glock even told customer they had a batch of "out of spec" extractors. Is it that or a bad design?

=======

"weak U.S. market ammo" is bull. Any reputable gun should be able to fire factory SAAMI spec ammo. Period. Winchester white box is loaded to SAMMI specs. If Glock can't fire that, it's Glock's fault.

========

And I'm a huge Glock fan. I've only owned Glocks for the past 21 years. Right now I own a Gen3 Glock 19 and a Gen4 Glock 26. I sold a Gen3 Glock 26 to get the Gen4 26 -- which had several FTEs in the first 300 rounds. Since springs didn't change with the Glock 26s, I'm leaning towards the extractor theory myself.

But if Glock has screwed up, don't be mindless fanbois about it. I'm sure they will fix it, but don't blame the messengers and don't blame ammo. My Gen3 Glock has no trouble shooting factory SAMMI spec ammo. If Gen4s can't, it's the Gen4 fault (somewhere in the firing process), not the ammo's fault (which didn't change).

When Federal Ammunition introduces a product like Federal Champion 115-gr FMJ 9mm ammo to the USA market, the lowest powered ammo ever offered, then it is an ammo issue. It won't function in a new Gen4, New XD or New Kimber. Champion would not even function in my Gen2 G19 when I installed a brand new factory recoil spring assembly to test.

With it's latest 9mm offering, Kimber recommends only 124-gr and higher full power service ammo.

Sometimes it is an ammo issue. Sometimes it is a shooter issue. Sometimes it is a recoil spring issue.

Try not to forget all the issues stated here that new shooters have had after buying a Gen2 or Gen3 "C" model 9mm Glock.

SAAMI regulates maximum pressures, not minimum, cheap loadings. Winchester USA (PF of 136.85) works fine in all Glocks. It is far hotter than Federal Champion (PF of 129.38). Glocks, being Military pistols, are designed around the 124-gr FMJ NATO round, PF of 146.94.

Nope, its a combat pistol. Ready to go out of the box. Its not a 1911 or Revolver that have a high number of internal parts and are delicate to different situations and break ins. Glocks do not have this problem. No break in required, although some guys on here might have their own break in but its mental not a requirement for the action of the gun.
