I have been bugging JR , the owner of Lone Wolf, for 8 months or so to make a batch of non-ported extended length barrels for the G-29.
Lone Wolf currently makes an extended ported barrel that is about 4.8 inches long... slightly longer than the stock G-20 barrel.
A NON-ported barrel the same length would make the G-29 about equal or better performance compared to the G-20,, which would be nice for hunting , etc. (He says that is about the max length for the G-29).
He said that if there were 50 or more people interested in buying one of these, that he would consider running a batch for us.
So if any of you G-29 owners are interested in one of these extended barrels, respond to this post and when we have enough responses I will let JR know so he can check out the thread.

He says the price would be around $100.
Lone Wolf makes quality products at very reasonable prices.

marvin22 (http://glocktalk.com/forums/member.php?u=83772) I had wrote LWD several times about the 9X25 Dillon conversion for the G-29 in the longer length but without the ports cut in it. Simple enough just don't cut the ports, Right!

here is the answer I got from JR! I wish they would take their customers' suggestions more seriously!

"Wade
Unfortunately we do not offer the barrels the way you have described. Basically, you get what we have to offer the way it is, sorry.
We do Glock parts pretty good.... not sure our luck would work with any other gun.
JR"

I would consider a Long Slide & barrel combination to fit the G-29 with 10mm barrel & 9X25 Dillon conversion barrel without any damn ports.

BTW, Storm lake does offer you a longer 10mm barrel/40S&W conversion barrel/357 SIG conversion barrel choices with or with out ports, threaded choices too!

I'm interested in a longer 9x25 Dillon barrel for my G29SF. Is having the ports that much of a downside with the 9x25 Dillon? What are the advantages, if any?

Mr Wasabi (http://glocktalk.com/forums/member.php?u=93987) The ports are suppose to help with muzzle rise but the down side is flash and powder residue in your face, not to mention the sonic crack(BOOM!) I would rather just have the straight barrel with the extra length to keep this out in front of me and shooters around me!

I went to the range this evening and tested some 9X25 Dillon loads, from my S&W1006 with a Bar-Sto conversion barrel. I will need to refine the loads some more.
I posted the results here on the GT 10mm reloading forum.

The 9X25 is a nitch calliber and takes some time to set up properly and develop loads for it. Not much data exist and that which does is spec'd on 8" barreled test, the pressures are in CUP. I am trying to work with some powders which are not in the data I have collected but are being used for 357 Sig.

Mr Wasabi

Thanks for the reply Shadow,

Do you lose any velocity with the ported barrels with the gases escaping earlier/powder possibly not completely burning? If so, the ported barrels dont make sense to have in calibers that may not recoil that bad especially when shot through a G20 or G29. Yeah, they look cool but I'm with you and would rather not have the flash and powder all over the place.

passive101
04-09-2009, 12:14
I would be interested!

Would there be enough support for a longer barrel in the glock 29 that long? There would be more velocity. Would I need a spring stronger then the stock 29 spring firing full power 10mm loads through it?

I would be happy with the stock 20 length of barrel. I'm not sure of the physics but it wouldn't be supported near the front of barrel so if it gets to long there could be issues with support, warping, etc?

What I really want is a Mdl 20 barrel and slide set up for my Mdl 29.

It's just my preference...I know I can accomplish this via Robar on a Mdl 20, which will most likely end up taking place.

What say you?...Oh Guru's of GLock knowledge?

I took it upon myself to reduce the grip on my first G20 to G29 size.
I can use the short ten rounders for carry and the mag "fillers" on 15 round mags. Works fine. Its a "G29 Long Slide!" I honestly did that. Probably wouldn't be too expensive to have done professionally.

Because the barrel lug is different on a 20 barrel than a 29 one......I think. It's been a while since I have compared the two.

Ok, yep they are:

Hey guys....

When I saw this thread, I had assumed that no long barrel for g29 existed, but I was wrong. mercury0_0 (http://glocktalk.com/forums/member.php?u=85914) seems to have a long barrel for g29 already..... See this pic in this thread.
(See : http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=999911 )

What barrel is this ?

EDIT : I did some research and it's a storm lake barrel.
EDIT : they make 3.78 inch(stock), 106mm, and 4.48inch barrels.
EDIT : It's 175$. Is that too expensive ? Is LW barrel going to be cheaper ?

If you contact KKM directly they will sell you a longer G29 barrel. I have two, one threaded and one not. They are both roughly 5 in. (can't remember exactly) and 100% reliable. You can also get 6 in. G20 barrels from them. Bx3

12-11-2010, 22:07
Yeah. I have a 4.45" bbl. I bought from KKM. It has reasonably tight chamber tolerance. The ramp protudes very slightly into the chamber, but not much. I haven't measured it, and I know it could be tighter - but it's WAYYYYY better than Glock's factory p.o.s. mud wraslin' tolerances.

Give him a call and see what you can find - KKM has these in stock ready to be cut to length - I don't think he has anything longer than that though.

gatorboy
12-13-2010, 10:38
I'd be interested in a 4" or 4.25". They make Canadian minimum 30 barrels which are 4.25". To make 29 barrels would seem easier than simple considering they are the exact same but bore size.

I've always wanted a 5.5" (better yet, a 5.6") barrel for my G-29. 5.5" is the minimum barrel length for handgun hunting in WI and unless I can get one that's legal for hunting, I'm not going to bother with one.

Id love a 5.5-6 inch barrel for velocity in reloading and hunting.

swinokur
01-27-2011, 06:44
I got the 4.48 Storm Lake barrel. It's not 5-6" but it gets me just .12 inches short of a G20. Better than nothing.

JR at Lone Wolf Dist. said there were no plans to make a long one. I don't know if there are mechanical or ballistic issues that would prevent a 5-6" one for the G29 from being offered.

Maybe KKM, Storm Lake or Bar Sto will offer something if demand is high enough.

Rigormootis
01-27-2011, 19:14
To be honest, I just don't see how one would figure a ~4.5" bbl would be a better seller than a 5.6" barrel... do many people actually put cans on their 10mms? I know that some certainly do, but I would guess that there would be a bigger market for those wanting to hunt/achieve significantly greater velocity from their G29s. With a 5.6" G29 barrel, my stock-length SL barrel, and my AA .22lr upper, my G29sf would become a near-do-all backpacking/hunter/plinker sidearm.

By chance, did KKM tell you the maximum length they offered? I'd like to get a 5.6" one (barrels have to be >5.5" in WI for hunting). I carry a wheelgun currently for when I'm busting through swamp & dense brush, but I'd like to take my G29 someday.

I have considered cutting down a G20sf & then buying a G20L upper.... but of course that's the $$$ way to go for basically just a gain in sight radius and better asthetics. I'd rather just drop $150 or so and get a 5.6" barrel for my current G29sf for the few times I'd "need" a longer barrel (and then spend what I "saved" on a 2nd G29sf for the safe)...

Thanks.

They make all the G29 barrels LONG (I think around 6 inches) and when they get an order they CUT IT. So you can get an extended barrel for the G29.

Probably best to call first however. The man told me if I ordered it online just write in the comments section how long you want it.

But call first to see if they have them in stock. They did the other day.

Maybe the longer barrel just will not fit in the slide? anyone try and place a long 10mm barrel in a g-29 slide? Maybe the barrel would be too long to fit inside the barrel "hole" in the frame and the slot cut for it? Just a thought... I have the KKM stock lenght and it GREATLY increases velocity and no glock smile on my brass.

I think the reason no 6 inch (or 5.5 inch) barrels exist for the Glock 29 is probably not enough demand. KKM makes a 4.5 inch..which is nice...and I have a STORMLAKE on my Glock 29 the same size (4.48) approx as the KKM. I have KKM barrels on some of my other GLOCKS and I like them. Same for STORMLAKE and Lonewolf..they all work well.

A GLOCK 20 extended barrel (like my 6 inch lonewolf) has different lugs than the GLOCK 29 so they aren't interchangable. (too bad).

I really love my GLOCK 29....and I just bought another one..In the middle
of our Kalifornistan 10 day wait right now....:supergrin:

Its another OD frame..which I like more than basic black.

I removed my 6 inch lonewolf barrel from one of my GLOCK 20s and slid it into my GLOCK 29 slide. No problem. It slides right in.

Too bad the lugs are different; if they were the same the G20 barrel would run in the G29 slide.

Yup, that's the key, the barrel lugs prevent the swap. Over in the GATE Glock Pistol Forum (http://glocktalk.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=247), our resident expert JR Shepard gave this humorous warning about such an experiment:
"No can do. The locking lugs of the full size G20 are different than the locking lugs of the compact G29. BTW: If you get it in there, it is going to lock up so tight you will have to pay an advanced Armorer to get it out.... and then he will tack on an additional "stupid" fee for doing so!"

There's just too much difference to modify one or the other.

If they lock the slide to the lower by the locking cut out on the barrel, then a G-29 barrel that is at least 4.60" long "should" fit in a g-20 upper and then lock it all together maybe... When my new g-29 barrel arrives, I will try this out.. fingers crossed...

ModGlock17
11-19-2012, 11:39
My StormLake ~4.5" has been near perfect.

Heavier mass barrel does help with the recoil, thus time-to-second-shot. That's the one reason for an aftermarket barrel for G29.

The other reason is better barrel support so you can use the cases for more reloads.
