Hard to figure if the 6 inch barrel of the 40 is better than the 4 1/2 from the 20. Also the 40 is about 100.00 more, ouch. Anyway what do you Glock people think? Or just stick with my Glock 22 and call it good?
My GL20 has never shot with factory barrel , I use wolf ported with proper twist for cast and 40 barrel also . The factory remains unfired /Ed

Exactly what I was leaning to get with the Glock 20.

I have both the 20 and 29 I like both my 29 is my second most carried gun . I carry it when going down town, when walk security at church any place I consider higher risk. Both my guns run 40 S&W fine Glocks big extractor catches the rim and holds it so it headspaces off the rim. They shoots them well enough that I would not hesitate to load up with 40's if I didn't have 10 mm ammo.

I bought a new wolf barrel for my 20 when I first got it because everyone said factory barrels don't shoot lead. I had a lot of chambering problmes (tight chamber) Got frustrated one day and swapped back on the factory barrel. Found the gun actually shot cast better with the factory barrel, didn't lead and ran like a swiss watch with all my handloads. I know some have good luck with them but im not a cheerleader.

I think there is to much misinformation about the 10mm. I have a buddy, His only pistol is a Glock 20. He has had it about three years now. Original barrel and he shoots mainly 40 SW out of it about 90% of the time. I asked him about a year ago if he was worried about any problems from using the 40 instead of the 10mm or if he was going to get a 40 barrel for it. He just laughed it off. I also read where others have done it with no problems. ?????

I have returned 2 out of 13 wolf barrels both with light (defective rifling) promptly replaced over a 4 yr period .The factory blamed it on poor help (I agreed) ! However they are accurate and tight but never had a problem with 10/or 40 in my GL 20 using Dillon dies in my RL550 ,same with 9mm in my Glocks . Guess it"s a personal choice /Ed

are you using cast? Mine ran fine with factory jacketed bullets but was to tight for cast bullets unless I sized them to .400 and then like I said the factory barrel shooting 401s easily outshot it with cast. that said even factory barrels have shallow rifling and its one place where harder alloys sure out shoot softer ones. Hard the better in a glock.

I have a standard frame G20.i like it. You might want to look at s SF if you buy one . I like the G40 but do not have one. You can shoot 40 S,&W in it with a barrel change. You can also buy a longer barrel for the G20. Lone wolf has alot of Glock goodies . Other places also have alot of upgrades and custom parts for Glock k . That alone makes Glock a worthwhile consideration. In reality you can get a long slide and barrel from GrY Wolf put whatever sight you want on it and use it hunting etc. Use the standard slide for personal or home protection or pliking. Or what ever you want.

Sorry the SF is for short frame. It has a smaller grip which some people like.

The factory 10mm barrel will shoot 40S&W just fine
