Will replacement barrel help with POA?

I am really considering getting a replacement (LWD) barrel for my G22, Gen2.

I have to adjust the rear sight to the right a significant amount. As in, nearly putting part of the rear sight off the slide.

I can't detect any issues in the factory barrel.

Would a LWD barrel be a solution to this problem? Or, am I worrying about nothing and just live the the sights.

Are you sure the problem is with the gun and not the shooter?
Have others shot the pistol with the same results?
Where were the rounds hitting when the rear sight was centered?
Regardless of point of impact vis a vis point of aim, are you getting good groupings?

I doubt the problem is with the pistol's barrel.

Yup, thought it was the shooter, but, another buddy had the same results.

It is a police trade-in and came with GNS, and the rear was adjusted way to the right.
(it shoots to the left, otherwise)

It groups well enough. Fair amount of slop in the Gen2 barrels, but, nothing that would impact its effectiveness for defensive purposes.

Nothing is obviously wrong either with the slide. Barrel port looks the same either way.

Maybe the locking lug on the barrel is either slightly "off" or the locking block is the issue.

Hard to tell.

Thinking I might try a new locking block first, but, wanted to get opinions first from other shooters before I start spending money.

Inspect the locking block and it's pins in the receiver for cracks. Many cheap aftermarket barrels are worse for accuracy than the factory barrel. If you replace or try another barrel, get a factory Glock barrel.

Try the extended slide lock that is talked about in other posts on here. It seems that a lot of guys have on and have had good results. I ordered mine yesterday and will have it in soon. Many guys say that they have improved accuracy with this part
