View Full Version : Threaded Barrel

I need a threaded barrel for my G17 or G19. What brands are preferred? Is the barrel for a 17 interchangeable with a 19?

This is for a suppressor. Any reason to suppress a 19 over a 17 or vice-versa?

I've had good luck with Lone Wolf.... I've supressed my 26, 19 and 17...... no difference.... use subsonic ammo or reload your own.

Gemtech recommends Lone Wolf barrels for a can

LWD, Firedragon, and KKM. I think the KKM barrel with compensator unscrews and is standard threads and it is a match grade barrel. I've had great customer service from all three companies.

You have several options. You can use a stock barrel that has been cut down and threaded. Be sure your thread configuration of your barrel and suppressor match. You can use a Glock 17L or 34 barrel in a Glock 17, and a Glock 19 barrel in a Glock 26. I believe you cannot use a Glock 17 barrel in a Glock 19. I'll have to double check this. I think the "lugs" are different. Use can use for threading of the barrel. Search for more sources and information under their Glock forum.

Lone Wolf seems to the be the most popular third party barrel used. I've also heard that Storm Lake and KKM barrels are good too.

For the Glock 26, consider using the AWC Titanium Abraxas suppressor since it is really light weight and is used by US Army and Airforce for use in the Glock 26 and 19. Here is the website:

For larger pistols, consider the Advanced Armament Evolution 9mm.

As mentioned by myglockisa23 (, consider using subsonic ammo/reloaded ammo since many of the suppressed pistols remain very loud with standard ammo. The best suppressed Glock is a G34, but this is huge.

My G19 with Lone Wolf barrel and AAC Evo-9...........

You might want to take a look at the new Thompson Machine Poseidon 9mm suppressor. It's really small and lightweight and relatively inexpensive.

Here is a youtube video of the suppressor on the Glock 26.

There is more of a discussion of this suppressor on silencer talk.

For sights, you can use Ameriglo sights.

By the way, I tested my Glock 17 barrel in the Glock 19 pistol. The Glock 17 barrel is not compatible with the Glock 19 pistol. The lug configuration is different. For the Glock 19, you're limited to third party vendors.

LoneWolf Barrels are very good,I own 3 and no issues so far.
No, the g17 and G19 barrels are not intercahngeable.

Make sure what ever silencer you buy, it has a booster/LID/ or Neilsen device.
Glock pistols usually require one of these to cycle properly.

My Evo-9 works great on the 17,19 and 26... I was shooting it dry in the video.... it would be even quieter wet.. no maintenance on the Evo-9... no changing wipes... you can dip it in a cleaner or send it to the manufacturer every 10,000 rounds and they will service it for free and return it to you in the mail....... I do like the size of the Thompson Machine Poseidon.....

Your setup looks really nice.

I have one Advanced Armament Corp (AAC) can as was just about to get a 9mm Evolution suppressor. AAC has a new suppressor called Ti-RANT 9mm.
It seems to be really popular on the HKPro forums NFA talk. It is supposed to be very quiet when dry fired. According to the website, it has a 130dB sound signature. This is presumably the most quiet dry fired suppressor. Of course, it can also be fired wet. It's a bit longer but about the same weight as the Evo 9.

My G17 with Evo-9... Wolf Gold 147 gr is very quiet....

My G26 with Evo-9

That is one fine setup. That's exactly what I'm trying to setup currently.

I have a few questions I'd like to ask since you are up in running with a similar setup I'm planning.

How subjectively different is the sound suppression between a suppressed Glock 17 and 26? I heard that the Glock 26 is substantially loader with some ammo. I assume this will improve with subsonic 147gr 9mm ammo. Is the Glock 26 still workable in regards to sound suppression or should I just stick with the Glock 19 and 17? Does that Glock 26 reliably cycle with the Evo 9? I assume that the booster/LID/Neilsen device is built into these fine suppressors. Lastly, did you use Lone Wolf barrels on both of your Glock 17 and 26?

What sights are you using? Night sights? As mentioned above, Ameriglo makes some tall suppressor sights for just this purpuse. If you're into competition like night sights, Heine makes the Slantpro Straight Eight in the tall suppressor configuration. One of the advantages of the AWC Titanium Abraxas suppressor is that it is relatively small in diameter and allows the use of the native sights. My guess is that the Evo 9 provided better suppressor.

Again, your setup looks awesome. Your last post top picture especially looks cool.

Already purchased a Gemtech Tundra. Dual use between my Glocks and MP5. Still waiting for the Form 4 to clear though. I'm not going to bother with tall sights.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll probably go with Lone Wolf. They're a lot cheaper than Bar-sto or Jarvis. Will probably get one for the 17 and 19.

I didn't change the sights on mine either... and can still hit a 8" plate at 20 yards....later, if I can get a deal on a spare slide, I might install the higher sights on it....

If you have to pick, go for suppressing the 17. I found the longer grip works better to balance the weight of the can. The lone Wolf barrels work great.
