9 X 25 barrel availability?
« on: November 13, 2017, 12:22:12 PM »
Hi everyone,

I am new to the forum. Just got a Glock gen 4 model 20 . One of the reasons I wanted it,  (my first Glock) is the versatility of the conversion barrels. I can't find a 9 x 25 barrel . Lone Wolf does not have one listed. I heard that Bar Sto used to make them. I  reload and am ready to get the die set from Dillon. I already have some new Starline brass. any ideas?

thanks ,

Flydad

We may have to wait on LWD to make a run of barrels and conversions, they have been pushing the Alpha Wolf line of stuff.  Just keep your eyes open and ears for someone selling off their barrels or hang in there.  BTW write or e-mail LWD, Storm Lake and KKM to see if they can step-up...

I recently emailed KKM. You can order one through them. Send them an email. He said there's a wait time, but I didn't pursue so I don't know how long it was.

Both Barsto and KKM replied and said they would make one. Barsto is quicker , but more expensive. I am ordering a 10 mm from KKM first in the next week or so. The gen 4 factory barrel is better than earlier barrels I have seen,  but still produce a bulge. I am used to that with .40 and have a Redding G-Rx die that I use. And I cast/PC my own bullets.  Are the Barsto barrels worth the extra money?

Bar-Sto does make great barrels, the two I have are for my S&W1006.  Both are Match Grade and one is for 40S&W the other I got from Mike McNett (NOS that he had Bar-Sto do) is 9x25Dillon.
Being Match Grade each had to be hand fitted to the slide and frame and the 9x25 needed a final chamber reaming after the barrel was fitted.

I don't thing the Glock barrel from Bar-Sto will require final reaming.  But you might want to inquire as to fitment if you go that route.  Headspacing is crucial for the 9x25 cartridge.  Too much and cases can crack and or split and be over worked with resizing.

Glad 9x25D has a growing following. Greatest round ever made. I have a g40 w/ 7 inches of pipe from kkm. True Death ray. 90 gr underwood clocking OVER 2100 fps.  :o

Barsto has the 9 x 25  Dillon listed as an option now on their website for the Glock model 20
