    Okay....Hi everyone....
    I am a new gun owner and have a Glock 22.

    Please bear with me....I have some questions which I think have probably been discussed before, but I would GREATLY appreciate any helpful response to any of my questions......
    Here I go...

    1.)I like Cor Bon ammo for my 22. Cor Bon has 3 different types of ammo in the .40 range.=== 135gr; 150gr and 165 gr. What is the difference? What is the difference in a 135 grain and a 165 grain? How will it affect my gun?

    2.)I'd like to upgrade my glock 22 barrel to a KKM Precision Standard Premium Match Grade Stainless Steel Barrel. What is the advantage to doing this? Is it worth it?

    3.)What is the difference between these two items and would you reccommend them? ----- Glockmeister captured competition Tungsten recoil rod. VERSUS- ---- Glockmeister captured competition Tungsten recoil rod with a Glock stock recoil spring installed.

    Thanks so much for any help..... Also if you have any other suggestions for upgrades please let me know --- I already went with Trijicon night sights.

    1) point of impact will vary with bullet weight, heavier bullets will shoot higher.

    2) unless you intend to shoot lead, an aftermarket barrel is not necessary

    3) both are captured guide rod assys, one without a spring and the other with a stock spring in place.

    What you need is trigger time. Spend your money on practice ammo. I suggest 165 or 180.

    I'm glad you decided on the Glock 22.

    My answers to your question...

    1. Slow and heavy vs fast and hard. In a nutshell, the heavier the bullet, the deeper the penetration (get yer mind out of the gutter! ;m ). The lighter and faster it is, the quicker it will hit and expand, less penetration. If you are open to other makes or carry loads, people have been suggesting Remingto Golder Sabers in the 165gr flavor and also the 155gr loads on Speer Gold Dots, Fed. Hydrashoks, and Winchester Silvertips. I might be missing a few.
    The 165gr Golden Saber is rated in the top 90% for "OSS". One Stop Shot...

    2. Accuracy..maybe and also to shoot lead. Accuracy depends on who you talk to. Some insist that the Glock barrels are more accurate than the KKMs while others swear that the KKMs are. It depends on how good of a shooter you are from the beginning to set a "standard" down.

    3. Why Tungsten? Do you need to extra weight in the muzzle?
    The two items you listed are the same. One does NOT come with a recoil spring while the other does. There's only a $5 difference. You could go with a ISMI spring or stick with the stock one.

    Good luck!

    1) Grains is the unit in which the Bullet itself is measured in, like in carat with a diamond. The more it is the heavier the bullet is. I personnaly use the Speer, Gold Dots 165gr as carry ammo. However like it is mentioned the more practice you get the more will you start to prefer a certain weight and bullet. What i like about the Gold Dot is the fact that it solid in the front giving it a certainty that the bullet will mushroom on inpact.

    2) You newly receive your Glock. Why change the barrel. The barrel it have is 100%. I still uses the same barrel after having shot a couple of thousand rounds through it.
