Pencil barrel??

Picked up this on trade and thought I'd put up some pics....

Is this a pencil barrel? S/N is DF###US.

Made in 1987.

Thanks.

I can't from the pictures,what you would need as a picture is with the slide locked back or with the barrel it's self. SJ 40

it's had to say with only one gun for comparison, but it doesn't look like the "pencil barrel Glocks" congrats any way, on a fine firearm.

I have a gen2 19....if the barrels appear the same, then it's NOT a pencil?

It doesn't appear to be to my naked eye but you can't really tell by looking most of the time. If the barrel diameter is the same as your G19 then no it's not.

I traded my 19 gen4 w/glock nite sites for this junker.

The internal parts have been upgraded, so it's not all original.

Consensus was do it.....so I did.

I'm not sure. Here's a post with comparison pictures:

Only real way to know would be to take one of the newer barrels and slide it into the hole from outside the slide. If the new barrel fits, the original barrel is not a pencil barrel.

I think the pencil barrels were only in the A series.

I would say no. In the pencil version, the barrel cut doesn't break the bevel cut, it looks like yours breaks that line.

Tough to tell because the light isn't the same on your pic...but it looks to be more "not".

Just tested....the gen 2 19 barrel fits in the 17 slide. But, the bevel cuts look different.

the 19 cuts about twice as much down in the barrel front....very minor cut in the 17.

Tried to do similar light....Still hard to say.

Ignore the socks/flops fashion statment. Yes, I'm standing on bathroom sink.

Nope, it's not a 'pencil' barrel.....they stopped long before your gun was made....around prefix AM (IIRC).

AF is.....AP isn't.
