Chris,
The longest 29 we make is 4.5".
Kevin

________________

So, perhaps Bar-sto, Jarvis, or other?
Has anyone asked Storm Lake?
Storm Lake 4.48" Got mine today.
Bar Sto has one but ported only and 1 threaded does not give length
Jarvis -nothing in 10mm at all


Looks like KKM or Storm Lake

Jarvis used to make a Glock 20 barrel. Back in the late 90s or so, I had a 6" Jarvis barrel for my G20.

Maybe the longer barrel just will not fit in the slide? anyone try and place a long 10mm barrel in a g-29 slide? Maybe the barrel would be too long to fit inside the barrel "hole" in the frame and the slot cut for it? Just a thought... I have the KKM stock lenght and it GREATLY increases velocity and no glock smile on my brass.

I think the reason no 6 inch (or 5.5 inch) barrels exist for the Glock 29 is probably not enough demand. KKM makes a 4.5 inch..which is nice...and I have a STORMLAKE on my Glock 29 the same size (4.48) approx as the KKM. I have KKM barrels on some of my other GLOCKS and I like them. Same for STORMLAKE and Lonewolf..they all work well.

A GLOCK 20 extended barrel (like my 6 inch lonewolf) has different lugs than the GLOCK 29 so they aren't interchangable. (too bad).

I really love my GLOCK 29....and I just bought another one..In the middle
of our Kalifornistan 10 day wait right now....

Its another OD frame..which I like more than basic black.

Try and slide that 6" lone wolf into your 29 frame, just to see if it would have enough clearance,... just a thought....

I removed my 6 inch lonewolf barrel from one of my GLOCK 20s and slid it into my GLOCK 29 slide. No problem. It slides right in.

Too bad the lugs are different; if they were the same the G20 barrel would run in the G29 slide.

Yup, that's the key, the barrel lugs prevent the swap. Over in the GATE Glock Pistol Forum, our resident expert JR Shepard gave this humorous warning about such an experiment:
"No can do. The locking lugs of the full size G20 are different than the locking lugs of the compact G29. BTW: If you get it in there, it is going to lock up so tight you will have to pay an advanced Armorer to get it out.... and then he will tack on an additional "stupid" fee for doing so!"

That looks Crazy! But if you want to go hunting with your 29, guess thats the only way! Can you take a picture of the two next to each other to display the two types of "Locking Lugs" I'm sure somone attempted to machine a 20 into a 29 if possible

There's just too much difference to modify one or the other.

Glock 29 on top. Glock 20 on the bottom.

Just ordered a KKM barrel, longer than factory but no 5+ inch, told me it would take an order of 40+ to run them.... lots of folks need to want one, or two... If your interested, lets do it! Then maybe a G-20 slide will fit the 29 frame...

That is what I would like to see, a complete 6" extended slide & barrel combination for the Glock 29's like they did for the Glock 20's

If they lock the slide to the lower by the locking cut out on the barrel, then a G-29 barrel that is at least 4.60" long "should" fit in a g-20 upper and then lock it all together maybe... When my new g-29 barrel arrives, I will try this out.. fingers crossed...

The barrel lug is very different for the G-20 as compared to the G-29...will not interchange SORRY!

My StormLake ~4.5" has been near perfect.

Heavier mass barrel does help with the recoil, thus time-to-second-shot. That's the one reason for an aftermarket barrel for G29.

The other reason is better barrel support so you can use the cases for more reloads.
