Aftermarket barrel

Discussion in 'Gun-Parts & Access.' started by CC Glock, Jan 16, 2010.

  1. Is a good aftermarket barrel really that much better than the stock barrel. In better im mean more accurate.

    No. Not for 99.9% of shooters.
    If you're getting 10 shots in a 1 inch circle and cant quite seem to get it down to a half inch....maybe a new precision barrel will help.

    But if you're groupings are a little more "real world", you're better off just practicing more than buying a new barrel.

    Accuracy; a little better
    Ejection; nice even pattern
    Sights; can be a problem. I have two KKMs. They both shoot one inch higher than stock. You can't get a taller front stock, Mepro or Trujicon. Ameriglo has some very nice offerings; but you may wind up with having to fine tune your Ameriglo purchase to complete the perfect POI.
    Overall, unless you are a reloader, it's not worth the money

    or unless you want to shoot lead, otherwise it won't matter. And most prefit barrels are no more accurate than factory, now a fitted barrel will get you that extra half inch.
  5. If you want that kind of accuracy, get yourself a rifle.
  6. Thanks guys. figure i will stick with the stock barrel.

    I have a Lone Wolf, but it is for conversion from 40 S&W to 9mm.
