Had a FedOrdnance barrel that had issues. Think they are out of business.

Looking at a couple options for barrels ... Any that you guys have particularly liked or had troubles with?
Have a Lone Wolf...inexpensive and works great and is accurate. If you reload, send them some dummy rounds and they will throat it and open the chamber a bit if ya need. Good service and quality.

Had a Storm Lake once...worse accuracy than my Lone Wolf. Could have been a sub-par one off the line...who knows...

I have a Storm Lake in my G21 that works great. although I find it interesting that it has a left hand twist,but I can't tell any difference when firing.

Why are you looking at different barrels? To shoot reloads or lead bullets? To shoot different caliber?

I shoot a KKM replacement in my G23 so I feel better shooting factory reloads. May not make big difference, but makes me feel better.

Just looking to put a threaded barrel on my 9mm. Hopefully make it shoot a tad nicer, not really expecting anything though.

Some aftermarket barrels are drop-in and same specs as glock originals. However others are semi-drop in or gunsmith fit. These have slightly oversized hoods and lugs that ensure a tighter lockup for improved accuracy.

I am a proponent of after market barrels if you shoot lead heads and reload. Moat aftermarket barrels have tighter chambers that minimize brass expansion and have better case head support (which leads to less "guppie bellies").

By not allowing excessive brass expansion, it doesnt work the brass as much reloading them, which resizes them back down to factory specs. Expansion and resizing works the brass and over time weakens it.

Hope this helps a bit...
