So, Im thinking about upgrading my barrel... I was wondering what would be a better purchase... a ported barrel or a threaded barrel. What are your thought?
Thanks, I've shot compensated Glock barrels for years, but just never heard of any of them referred to as "nubs." In my humble opinion, extended, ported barrels are just about worthless. A threaded barrel is just about worthless, unless you intende to screw something on the end of the barrel, such as a compensator or suppressor. (Just noticed Doublestack's post. He's saying the same thing I'm saying.)Just a small compensator.
Here in Iowa an image like that is considered porn! LOL So far the State Gubermint don't like 'em.I don't have a small "nub".....
Seriously though, moving away from a factory Glock barrel doesn't make much sense without a real need.
Aftermarket barrels can be finicky regarding ammo and are definetly not a wise choice for a carry gun. If it's an extra gamer setup or a fun gun, sure. Personally, If I didn't own the can, I would just use the $200 to buy another 1000 rounds of ammo and work on my recoil control. View attachment 7988
WalterGA ... have you ever used the Redding GRX die for case bulge from a Glock barrel? I understand about using a barrel that isn't so "loose" to begin with.If you're going to be shooting lead bullets, then, of course, there is a good reason for an aftermarket barrel. I use an aftermarket (LWD) barrel on my G20, only because I get more reloads out of my brass with the LWD's tighter chamber.
I like Redding dies, but never tried that particular one. I'm of the opinion that the less we work our brass, the better it works. I never have experienced Glock bulges, but I don't/won't ever load .40s, either. I'm satisfied with the performance of my LWD barrel.WalterGA ... have you ever used the Redding GRX die for case bulge from a Glock barrel?
