    I've been considering a G27 or G33 and then picking up an aftermarket barrel for other caliber to haveboth but I read a lot about the lack of support for the Glock in 40sw and I was wondering if this is true for the 357sig as well??

    Is the Glock 33 more supported than the G27??

    f I know that the 357sig barrel has plenty of support, I will get that one first and then pick up the 40 aftermarket barrel

    The other way if I get the G27, then I would want to pick up both barrels?

    Do these aftermarket barrels reduce reliability?? (these are not conversion barrels)

    Thoughts?

    They have all the support you need.

    The only area uncovered even in old Glock 40 chambers is also the strongest area of the case
    The newer Glock 40 chambers are tighter and support even more

    My new stock G23 and G22 barrels do not leave a bulge like the older models. They have as much support as most others.

    The only reliability problems I have encountered with a Glock is when I started changing things especially a barrel.
