    Does anybody know where they are selling these at? I have found a couple on Gunbroker but am at a loss here. I am looking for the M13.5x1LH for a Glock 19. These barrels are more expensive than the other brands and I want to price shop for one. Thanks :cool:

    Are these barrels better than the other after market brand threaded barrels? Anybody have any experience with one of the Glock factory barrels and how do they perform? Thanks..

    I have one for a G19 and one for a G17. It is my belief that these barrels are superior to the aftermarket barrels for one reason: Glock made them. The machining is as good as the regular barrels, and the barrels have the factory finish.

    In my limited experience, both are threaded properly. I believe that very few have been imported into the USA, and they are priced accordingly. Each of mine ran me right at $180; however, this is less expensive than a baffle strike.

    Online searching is the best way to find these. Any "stores" that claim to have these always seem to have zero stock when I called to inquire.

    I did locate a couple but was wondering why it is hard to find them. Your explanation seems on par with that reason..

    I agree that one should stick to buying the factory barrels! The only coversion barrel I ever bought was for my Sig P226 40s&w to 357Sig from Sigarms! Now It's like having 2 guns in one with just a drop of a barrel.:cool:

    I bought a G17 barrel, and then sent it to Gemtech who cut it down and threaded it for me...that is always an option.

    I thought a G17 barrel would not work in a G19 because the lockup surfaces are different. I have seen a G17L barrel cut down and threaded for use in a G17.

    There's a few local gun stores that have them for the 19 in stock. What part of Ohio are you in?

    Vandalia Tactical in Dayton has them in stock. I can't remember the price off the top of my head, but I could have swore it was on par with everywhere else.

    I have Lone Wolf barrels for both my G17 and G34. Absolutely no issues.

    Lots of other users have had the same results.

    Probably a LOT cheaper and easier to get.

    When most people turn Glocks into race guns? They ditch the stock barrels and buy after market. Carver Customs builds loads of Glock-based race guns, and they don't use Glock barrels. And they got some superb shooters on their teams.

    Definitely not a lot less expensive; only a bit. The LWD stainless threaded barrel is $125.00, the threaded cap is $15.00, and shipping is $9.00. The total is $149.00. I paid $180 delivered for the factory barrels with the thread protector. So, one saves $31.00 unless the black barrel is desired. That drops the savings to $21.00, and the LWD Glock 19 barrels are not in stock.

    I rather have the Glock barrel as I am sure it is dimensioned properly.
