    Hey I was just trying to help the guy find someone at glock that would sell him G18 barrel's by bumping his thread.

    And you come in calling names.

    GT is known for its maturity.

    Sorry, but other than G18 mags, GLOCK doesn't like selling G18 parts..

    I do not think a G18 barrel will work in another Glock but a G18. I read in a Glock book by Peter Kasler (I think) thats the Glock 18 uppers are machined to a different tolerance to RESTRICT turning a Glock 17 into an 18 just by swapping slides.

    I am one of the lucky guys (FFL) who have a G18 and the barrel is the same as a G17.
    The difference between the G17 to the G18 is:

    Everything else is the same.

    I forgot my sarcastic smilie...I was still playing along. Seemed to me from the beginning that he was looking for a full size 9mm barrel so I thought I'd have some fun.

    Then people like MarcDW come along and teach us something...geez.

    That's the first photo of the inner workings of a G18 I've seen. Thanks Marc!

    There goes my reply. Not sure what a Glock 18 barrel would do though if the slide wasn't compensated/cut to match the Glock 18 ports? Just get a factory Glock 17 barrel then with no porting?

    One other difference as well is, that the G18 slide is smaller and does not fit on other frames.

    Ok, yeah I was familiar with that... just sounded odd the way you described it.

    I sure would like to get the chance to detail strip one of those things one day. More so the slide than the frame.. I can pretty much tell the differences in the frame from the top.

    Back when I was able to play with a few of them, I was not a GLOCK Armorer, and was not near as familiar with the internals of a GLOCK>
