Is it worth waiting for a Glock factory threaded barrel?

    I am planning to get a threaded barrel for my Glock 26, and possibly for Glock 34 (I do not have it yet).

    The two brands that are the most popular among current online retailers are Lone Wolf on low end and Storm Lake on higher end, and I target Storm Lake. But I was told that some major online retailers will get Glock factory made threaded barrels within one month. Is it worth waiting for Glock's? How will they compare to Storm Lake, performace and price wise?

    Until they show up and are tested, it would be speculation. You shouldn't have a problem with any of the quality aftermarket barrels. I've used KKM and LW with success.

    Nothing wrong with Glock, but I've got lots of rounds through the LW barrels and like them.

    Aren't the glock barrels threaded differently to and require an adaptor? Metric? I just dropped a Storm Lake into my Gen 4 19, screw on my Octane 9 and bang, bang, bang.

    Silencerco's Glock barrels are pretty nice too. The finish on my Silencerco is far nicer than any of my LW barrels, but they all shoot equally accurate.

    I agree I purchased a storm lake for my G17, they are nitro carbonized and have the standard threads. I have read good things about the Glock barrels also, but people are not selling them very cheap.

    Is anyone else in love with their set up?
    Inquiring minds want to know or what is a POS I shouldn't bother with.
    Right now I'm using 9mm and I'm not really looking to expand into another caliber but who knows.

    It might be difficult to get a Glock threaded barrel in 26 or 34. All I've seen Glock brand is 17, 19, and 21. The Glock brand barrels have left hand threads so will take a different piston. The benefit I've found is the can will stay on tight with left hand threads; the right hand threads I have to check every mag just to tighten it back up snug (really a minor issue). I use the Octane 45 on my Glock 30, 26, 35, and 19. It works really well. I use Glock, LW, and SilemcerCo barrels. I haven't had a problem with any of them. On the Glock 35 I also have the 40 to 9mm conversion barrel and has worked great. Probably my favorite to use with the can.

    Good info on the LH thread. Probably tightens itself.

    I heard the G19 barrel can be used with the G26 with no problem. Can anyone confirm this?
