    Hi all,

    I'm considering a Glock 35 as a candidate to register as a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) and am trying to determine what kind of accuracy to expect from it at longer ranges. If I move forward I would probably install and extended barrel and would be running some sort of optics for sights. . .

    Given that, does anyone have any idea what kind of groups I should expect from one at 50-150 yards? Data from a rest or offhand groups at these extended ranges would be most helpful.

    Thanks all and God bless,

    Adam

    It's a Glock, not a scoped Thompson Contender.

    Quite frankly, your questions tell me that you are not familiar with handguns. This is a combat/self defense handgun and not a Camp Perry match pistol. That said, it will outshoot you.

    I have shot a verified five shot group at 50 yds. offhand (two handed) that measured 5 1/2" with a stock Glock 17 other than Ameriglo sights. That's a five shot group and not a "best of" five shots. That said, the Glock is not meant as such.

    Short Barreled Rifle. It's a special registration with the ATF and a long wait period.

    The idea is a shoulder fired weapon that is very concealable (although off body in a bag most likely) that has a much greater useful range than the standard side-arm.

    Well I was hoping to get some performance readings on them at these ranges as a handgun as shouldering them should only increase their usability and the ease at which a round can be placed on target. . .

    It would be useful in long range shooting (50+ meters)

    If you want a tack driver a glock is not it.


    BTW, SBRs are addictive.

    Yes, there are multiple options.

    You could go for something like the Sig ACP PDW.
    You could go for something like the Impulse barrel company's stock.
    You could go for the Endo tech stock.

    So, what is a tack driver "pistol" if it's not a Glock?

    Show me another tack driver pistol, that is about $500, and it's not a Glock....and I'd show you that the truth is not with you.

    I never said you could buy a tack driving pistol for $500.
