    I would like to add a 357 conversion barrel to my Glock 22. I know this is a very simple drop in conversion. I want to have an extended barrel length to maximize the velocity of the 357 sig round. I am not interested in having a threaded or ported barrel but would like a barrel length of at least 5 inches. I will not be shooting lead bullets through the barrel.

    Would a Glock 35 oem barrel work in my G22 or do I need to use another manufacturer?

    Is one considered to be the best or are they all of similiar quality?

    I have been on most of the websites (barsto, stormlake, lonewolf, etc. . . .) Stormlake was the only one that I could find an extended 357 sig barrel on the website that wasn't threaded or ported.


    Thank you

    Your post is confusing but I will give it a shot?
    Yes a OEM G31 357 barrel will drop into your G22 slide.
    I think you want a barrel at least 5 inches in length, not rounds?
    Glock Inc never made or offered a 5 inch 357 barrel so you will have to go aftermarket.
    Aftermarket manufactures offer barrel lengths in 5.32" (G35) http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=1036&TERM=lwd-35357 and 6.02" (G24) chambered in 357 http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=987&TERM=lwd-24357
    The best barrel in the world is determined by the one telling the story. Every barrel offered will do what any other barrel claims. It is impossible to define a criteria in which to judge them, where would you start?
