Hi.. I'm looking at the barrel conversions for my Glock22 to 9mm.
Realistically I want just the stock replacement, nothing fancy, just want to shoot 9mm rounds out of it.

On several sites that sell conversion barrels, there's different types:
Ported, compensated, with/without chokes, 2 port, threaded etc.. and the different lengths with the previous combo's. I have the length part figured out.. but I don't understand why or what a ported or compensated barrel would do for me?

I tried looking for a FAQ, but there so much info it's becoming a headache to try and read through everything.

Thank you!

Lone Wolf offers plenty of G22 9mm conversions. See them here
We offer all these variations because everybody wants to do something different with their guns:
1 The extended 2 port barrels offer a little more muzzle control than the stock length barrels.
2 The threaded barrels offer a means in which to attach muzzle breaks, comps or even real suppressors.
3 The extended length barrels offer you more velocity or allow you to add a longer slide to your G19 frame
