    Glock 21SF Aftermarket Barrels

    Hi Folks,

    I'm new in town, but I like this forum a lot (I have been lurking). I have a G21SF, and I am thinking that I will either get a 10MM Conversion Barrel or a 45 After Market barrel to shoot 45 Supers out of. I will be reloading either way. I know you've probably been through this a few times, but I would like to ask a few questions.

    1. I saw that the Lone Wolf warranty is void if you reload, so it's out of the running. In your experiences, which is the better barrel between KKM and Storm Lake? I am thinking the 5" ported barrel or 6" regular barrel from Storm Lake or the 6" from KKM.

    2. The KKM website says reloads are fine, but Storm Lake makes no reference either way. Do you know if Storm Lake's Warranty covers reloaded ammo?

    3. If I get the external ported barrel, does it do anything bad to the end of the slide or sights? My gun is not compensated (if they even make a 21SF-C)

    Thanks in advance.

    Elliott

    I have a LWD barrel for my 19. I am happy with it. Just about all manufacturers disclose against reloads since there isn't any regation on recipes, consistancy and reliability. Its kind of a CYA sort of thing. The way I see it is if you bought a barrel and had a problem, which is unlikely, thing thing to say is you always use factory ammo. They will never prove you use reloads unless you offer this info. I looked at getting a 10mm barrel for my 30 and SL seemed to be the best deal, but I never got one.
    Don't retreat! Reload!!!

    I guess I have noticed that with guns that I have bought. When you think about it, it's a good marketing strategy for KKM, since they are the only ones that say it's OK. They had me leaning that way because of it.

    You never know just how far some yahoo will push the "envelope" for that magical MAX load. Honestly people like that scare the hell out of me. I'll shoot my reloads and my son's and those I get from the P.D. rangemaster but that is it. In today's society everyone wants to sue someone because of their own mistakes and that is how the barrel makers feel and who can blame them?

    dont know why you would get a 10MM Conversion Barrel, you need a slide to convert it to 10mm, I have a 45super barrel form LW and BB ammo, no malfunction and you can tell you are not shooting a 45ACP.

    Which barrel did you get from LWD? Do you reload for it?

    I have 3 Lone Wolf barrels, one each for my 21,17,and 19 which are designed to shoot any bullet that your Glock is chambered for.

    Good shooting,

    Mike

    Just a follow-up to this (a year later). I ended up buying a Lone Wolf 6.5" threaded barrel. It has functioned flawlessly. I loaded up some 45 Super loads and started a thread on that, but it fell off my radar after a few sessions when work got crazy. I have a G20 and I just got LWD barrels in 10mm and a conversion to 40 S&W. I fired 40s through this barrel with no problems today. First shot right in the center of the target. I am sold on Lone Wolf barrels.

    I've used KKM and Storm Lake, both, and really couldn't tell any difference at all, except of course, one preferred one load over the other..I think you can't go wrong at all, and no the ported barrel won't hurt your sights, but, I know KKM used to not make any ported barrels, unless they changed their minds, so that may be a deal breaker for you.

    Good Luck
