    How important do you feel it is to have a serial # matching barrel? Obviously this is only important when selling

    Thx

    Not very, but I'd always keep it for selling just as you stated. Never heard of an LEO inspecting serial numbers for a ccw.

    Probably not important although if I was buying I would try to find out the reason the barrel was swapped out. Might be interesting and in theory some ( probably very few) of the Glocks around may have enough wear to actually need a new barrel.

    as others have said, not really. several of our guys have Glock 23s and 27s with non matching serial numbers on the barrels because we bought .357SIG barrels for them when we switched over to the Glock 31.

    Not a big deal but I won't buy one that has a mixed combination of serial numbers unless its a sweet deal. :dunno:
