    So we all know that Glocks are Great right out of the Box Accuracy and The Feeding of Rounds Everytime and Ejecting of Casings Everytime without a Jam. Well that is what i have experienced and have heard from many many others. So anyway I recently Ordered a Replacement Stainless Steel Barrel from Storm Lake i just ordered the Same Type of Barrel the Glock Came with same everything including the same Barrel Length of 4..49Inch Barrel only now it is in Beautiful Stainless Steel Very Sexy. The only other difference is that this new Replacement Storm Lake Barrel uses Conventional Rifling rather than the Glocks Right Hand Hexagonal I don't know if the Factory Barrel is More Accurate than this New Storm Lake Barrel or not. Folks keep telling me yeah this Storm Lake Barrel will indeed make my Glock 17 More Accurate due to tighter barrel lock up is what one said and not just because the Storm Lake Barrel Rifling is Better and Most Said no there won't be a Reduction in Reliability to Feed a round and Eject a Case every time even with the tighter Barrel Lock up of the Storm Lake Barrel I would like to Hear from You Guys????????

    Also what would be The Best Stainless Steel Guide Rod and Spring That would Reduce Recoil and Increase Accuracy????????

    I won't Be Shooting Lead Rounds or Reloads through it with this aftermarket barrel even though that is a added benefit. Maybe now i have a reason to buy some reloading equipment now and make my own reloads that is pretty sweet.

    Also any suggestions on upgrades that will make this gun Better I love This Gun and Right now i am ok with that Factory 5lb Trigger it is really safe considering a lighter trigger could more easily go offf accidently in a situation.

    Personally my feelings are the stock Glock barrel will be more accurate and reliable than any after market barrel for the average shooter. The only reason I would change is if i went back to shooting lead out of my G34. I've owned LWD, SL and KKM barrels for Glocks. I like stock with factory ammo and my FMJ reloads.
    The Stainless Steel Guide Rod and Spring debate is argumentative. I prefer stock and change it out every 3K in my carry guns and 5K in my competition G34. A guide rod is just that guides the spring... no increase in accuracy is obtained by going to one.
    Spend your money on a good set of steel aftermarket sights and training ammo or better yet reloading equipment.

    I feel most aftermarket bbls are going to be just a bit more accurate than the stock one. Will it matter? Depends on how well you shoot. The generous dimensions of the GLock bbls are why they run just about any kind of ammo. Going to a "tighter" bbl could affect reliability, just depends on the bbl.

    The only thing I would consider adding to my Glocks are nite sights and a rubber grip sleeve.
  5. I don't see anything wrong with a stock G17. I replaced the factory sights with a tritium XS system after sheering off the stock back sight during a boot drill.

  6. You want to make your Glock more accurate practice more.

    Before I opened this thread, I bet my wife this would be in it. After all, you cannot do better than those German engineers working for Gaston. (yea I know - Austrian)

    What I would do:
    Grip reduction from Robar and round that stupid trigger guard.
    Storm lake/Lone Wolf/KKM/ or BarSto barrel
    Night sights
    Lasermax laser
    Glockworks fulcrum adjustable trigger
    3.5 connector
    extended slide stop lever
    As a final touch, I would get the slide hard chrome plated just to look cool.
