Had one. My Lone Wolf and stock barrels were more accurate. Throat/chamber were a tad too tight for reloads too...but in fairness sometimes there are variances in barrel tolerances..

LWD lone wolf distributors makes great barrels, i have 2 of them on my g22/ it now fires 40s&w .357 sig & 9mm with the change of a barrel. 9mm requires 9mm mag.

Thanks for your input guys, this stock barrel is very accurate but my understanding since this is my first Glock that I shouldn't send lead thru it? Is that correct?
I have read some good an some what good reviews on LWD barrels. This is why I enjoy this sight alot because I get good feedback and learn alot. The reviews I have read on KKM barrels have been all good. Thanks again, Bob

I know folks, and have myself, run lead in stock Glock barrels. The issue is the polygonal rifling, which can lead up easily which causes pressure spikes resulting in damage from "kabooms". Many will tell you it's an issue with Glocks...NOT! It's an issue of over pressurization and I've seen it happen with firearms other than Glocks.

If you run lead in a stock barrel the rounds need to be slow enough where you don't get leading. This is achieved via reloading ("rolling your own").

A good benefit of aftermarket barrels is they work the brass less, especially if you reload your brass. Remember, the brass casings expand in the chamber and when reloaded are squeezed back to original size. Do this over and over and it works the brass. I've actually seem brass with rings down by the case head from being reloaded and shot so much.

The aftermarket barrels tend to have tighter chambers which limits the expansion of the brass...you also don't get the "Glock bulge" and have better case head support (at least in some cases).

Hope this helps.

I have KKM barrels in two of my pistols. We actually had a bullitin at work about lonewolf barrels and some issues. (357 sig) I really like the KKM barrels. Accurate and have no problems with my reloads.

I have a KKM .40 barrel in my G23 and have nit had any problems at all. I shoot offhand, so i cannot tell you if it is more accurate or not, but I'm still hitting about the same as always. I don't shoot lead or reload my own bullets anymore but I typically buy remanufactured rounds. After shooting thousands of reman ammo, I had a kaboom with BVAC 180 FMJ. Scary! After much research, I bought a KKM. Not totally sure this is 100% guarantee to prevent another KB but I feel better shooting reman ammo.
