best barrel? 3rd gen 35

So Im getting a 35 soon and Ive been researching. Ive seen some big boom pictures on the internet. I dont plan to shoot reloads, but Ive been concerned about the shell coverage on the barrel breach(where they tend to crack supposedly) so im thinkin of upgrading it right away. Im thinking lwd which i figured you could answer a couple questions i have.

Is there more material around the ramp area, compared to stock? Have you had a barrel failure in the 40 cal model barrels? Is there more frame contact area on your barrels then stock?

Can i get a C-comp port done on a 35 model barrel made by you? (pm me a price if so please and thanks) And do you do any coating such as ion bonding on barrels?

thanks and appreciate the help, zeth

LWD barrel offer more support than the Gen1 & Gen2 barrels. Late in the Gen3 production Glock Inc was making feed ramp changes and catching up with their support. Gen4 barrels are pretty much fully supported.
We have lost a few barrels to KB however none were attributed to materials or workmanship. They were ALL directly related to improper reloads.
LWD offers several types of porting. See a few choices here http://bit.ly/k2lDXa

We can ship every part of the gun direct to you except the frame. The frame must ship to an FFL.
The exception to this rule is if you ship us your firearm. If you ship us yours, in parts or complete, we can return ship it directly to you

The 40's seem to run pretty good on the stock recoil spring. Give it a few rounds and then decide. If you have ejection issues consider the 15 lb spring and go down to the 11 if necessary.
