    Hi JR, I'm purchasing a Glock20 Compensated next week and wondered if the additional purchase of the 6" hunting barrel installed on this weapon will work as designed with the compensated slide? Forgive my ignorance, but is it only the slide with the new openings or is the barrel also designed with openings that correspond with the slide openings?

    Good question!
    Any standard barrel will drop right into a factory compensated slide.

    Hi JR, I got my Glock 20 C the other night and I guess back to my original question, I'm actually looking for a 6" ported barrel to go with my ported slide. Glock doesn't make one, and they said LoneWolf does. Looking at your options, the 6" for the G20L sais this barrel can only be used in the 20L. I want the added accuracy, trajectory, etc a longer barrel will offer but I want it ported to match my slide. What can I use? Much thanks.

    Ok, let me try to get this straight?
    You have a Glock 20C.
    You want to install a LWD six inch barrel. Yes you can drop the non ported barrel right in and runs just like any other non ported barrel would run.
    You want to install a LWD six inch barrel and have it also factory C ported? http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=1147&TERM=lwd-port Yes we can do this too but I would not recommend it.
    You want to run a LWD internal ported barrel? No, this will not work. You must have an open top slide to run the internal ported barrel like this one http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=155967&TERM=lwd-port
    If you want to use your factory slide and install a LWD six inch barrel with external porting I recommend you go with a barrel like this one http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=155968&TERM=lwd-port

    thanks JR, Now I think I understand my options. I thought either Glock or an aftermarket 6" barrel was made with the same porting that the stock G20C comes with. Your last link is the one I'll go with, the 4 port external ports. Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction and avoiding an expensive mistake.
