    Lone Wolf, KKM and Storm Lake are board favorites.
    I've personally had good luck with Storm Lake.
    Have five of their barrels in 9mm , 357 Sig, 40 & 45.

    Storm Lake extended G20 is 6.02"
    For hunting I'd want the extra velocity.
    Your getting a second barrel in the same caliber?
    Go big or go home.

    So does the longer barrel help velocity? I wouldn't think so????

    If the extra length doesn't increase velocity, then you better tell the many individuals on this forum who use it to hunt with.

    No Problemo,
    I would also recommend using real hunting ammo.
    Not standard self defense hollow points.
    Animals are a lot harder targets than people.
    And penetration is king.
    Look at some super hard cast hunting rounds;

    A straightforward way of presenting it: As long as the force exerted by the burning powder on the BASE of the bullet is greater than the frictional force of the barrel rubbing on the SIDE of the bullet, the bullet will continue to accelerate. For a straight-walled handgun cartridge, the barrel would have to be almost rifle length for the burning powder to finally fall below that force level.

    Why not getting a 16" barrel? Turn it into a carbine in less than 30sec with a MechTech. There's a long waiting list.

    I can only hunt with 5 round Mags - is there a capacity limiter for the G20 mag ?

    I have the 5.1" Lone Wolf barrel for my G20 Gen 3. Makes it legal for hunting in Ohio by .1 inch. No problems with the barrel that I have.

    If I werent selling my G20 I'd be keeping this. Its the only barrel that doesnt bulge the brass, making reloading a *****, that I've ever had. I have a LW on the way for my new G29 Gen 4.
