    I've heard from a reliable source that Glock is making 6-inch "Hunting Barrels" for the G21, but alas, they are sold only in Europe at this point...

    If I can get more info (or get one of those doggies themselves), I'll post more.

    Would it help a lot? I would be interested to hear of any ballistic benefit. I've got a Federal ported extended barrel that's about 6" long but has two ports in the extra inch...I guess handloaders could eke out some benefit to where it's a lot more powerful than the 'ol 10mm (LOL-Just Kidding!)

    never heard of that for the 21, but you can buy them for the 20 here in the states.

    I picked up a 6" barrel for my G21C from Lone Wolf Distributers. Very accurate and reliable. I have done a bunch of chrono work with this barrel as well. Results can be seen in Caliber Corner. Run a search using my username and 'Tons of Chrono Data'.

    Can I get a longer barrel for my G30 for hunting? If so where? Are there any other changes I would have to make if I could? I like the idea of hunting with the .450 or .45 Super, but not with a G30 stock barrel.

    Just to clarify a few things:

    1. These are FACTORY Glock, rather than aftermarket replacements.

    2. They would give more velocity. See Turbo's posts in the other thread for more info.

    3. I'm betting someone makes a longer barrel for the G30. Check out KKM Precision, Jarvis Barrels, and Bar-Sto.
