    I just wanted to get some feedback on the drop-in barrels from Bar-Stro.
    Are they really worth 200 dollars, and do they make a significant difference in performance ?
    Also updating the gen4 with a stainless steel guide rod.

    Thanks for any input.

    Nope.

    Both are a waste of money, unless you want to shoot your own lead ammo. I believe even Sevigny (SP?) used a stock barrel.

    GLOCKs are not 1911s. Leave it stock.

    Nope, unless you're going to reload and, shoot lead bullets.

    What gun do you have, and what aspect of its "performance" are you looking to improve? Does it currently have shortcomings?

    After market barrels make the most sense for me when I'm converting the gun to shoot other calibers.

    Particularly the 40-9mm conversion barrels.

    My guess is that the best way to determine whether or not a Bar-Sto barrel will improve performance is to shoot the gun with the stock barrel in a Ransom rest to get a baseline of accuracy. I am certain a Bar-Sto barrel would improve many Glocks. My guess is that one would have to be in the top couple percent of shooters to realize a difference. I also guess that some of those shooters might choose something other than a Glock for some of that type shooting.
