    Model 34 with Model 17L stock barrel

    Model 17L with EFK 7" ported barrel

    TruGlo Brite-Site Tritium/Fibre optic sights on both pistols. A friend and I visited the local range today and shot at 25 yards with Double Tap 147 grainers and this M17L is going to be one more great bullseye shooter.:wow:

    The reason I did not purchase the LW was several things: after repeated emails to them they would not make special length barrel for me, their threaded barrel could only be used with their comp or the little threaded protector on the end which I think is ugly. I actually ordered one which they placed on back order till Dec. 30th. I started doing research and found the EFK barrel which they had in stock and was also longer than the LW. I did put a LW on my M17.

    Very nice! I especially like the looks of the 17L with the extended and ported barrel; it makes the squared-off front of the slide less noticeable, which is a good thing. Once you get some rounds downrange, let us know how well that barrel shoots with various loads. I might have to find one of those barrels for my older 17L.

    How well does the porting help? If I upgrade my 17L's barrel, I was wondering about whether or not I should look into a ported muzzle (or, more likely, a threaded muzzle with a screw-on compensator).

    Generally speaking, you get about an extra 20fps velocity per inch on the barrel length. Porting drops between 15 and 20 fps of velocity off.

    So with a 7" ported barrel you're getting about the velocity you'd get from a 6" barrel but with slightly less muzzle flip.

    I am hearing differences of opinion in what longer barrels make in speed. I plan to purchase a chrono about the end of the year and do some testing. I heard 1.5"s of additional barrel can make 150fps. I installed my Fire Dragon ported barrel on my M34 this week. I'll get pics posted tomorrow.

    I use my G17 frame with a G17 slide/barrel as well as gen3 G34 and a Gen1 factory-ported 17L. Of the three, I do best with the 17L, pretty consistently.

    I liked your pictures, but was really wanting to see some 25yd targets.
    I don't always show my 25-yd targets either...

    dont mean to bump but i was thinking of throwing a glock 17L ported barrel in to my glock 17.

    any one out there done this and can post some result pics of a glock 17 with glock 17L barrel either ported or non ported?

    also will there be any issues if i do this swap? i would mainly use this for ****s and giggles at the range and possibly to sbr with a stock

    thanks

    How much of a difference does the ports on the barrel make for a 9mm? And since you have both, is the recoil the same for a 34 and 17L? Without the ports I mean.

    I am getting full 150fps faster (using chrony) in my 17L with Corbon 90 & 115 grain +Ps. My friend has M17 to compare it with. Porting does not seem to bother speed.
