Will Stock G17 barrel work on G17C?

    I recently purchased a G17C. If I am unhappy with the ported barrel, I can swap it with a stock G17 barrel, right?

    Other than having vents in the slide, then it would be just like shooting a G17, right?

    Thanks.

    From my understanding, yes. No problems, you just take away the compensator function.

    I swap back and forth with ported and non-ported factory barrels in my G23C. No Problem.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but who is offering the best deals for stock barrels for the G17?

    If you are a member of GSSF: you can swap in the Glock 17 barrel into your G17C and use it to shoot in the amateur/guardian division (vs. being stuck in the competition or unlimited divisions). :cool:
