First Glock,First Post,aftm.barrel?

Hello everyone,new to the forum and want to say hello. I just got into the glock world with a glock 20sf purchase.Been shooting and reloading most of my life but mostly sixguns.I usually reload most my ammo and like to shoot WFN cast bullets in my sixguns,are there any good suggestions on say some 200grn cast bullets? And also what is the preferred aftermarket barrel for shooting cast bullets and where can I find one? Right now I'm just bought some 1000 rds of freedom munitions 10mm ammo and it feels a little weak,but I price seemed right and I need the brass. Sorry for all the questions right off.But any help is appreciated. Thanks

after searching around on here I think that is what I will try,I've seen a few pics of glocks with slides milled for red dot sights look alright how much does one have to spend for that,or any aftermarket sights that you recommend not for combat but for more precise target shooting,I know I didn't buy a target pistol but I seem to have trouble with the sights and trigger is horrible compared to my single actions.Love the gun though.

You can pick up a 3.5# trigger bar from various sources i.e. Lone Wolf for one. They're not hard to install, it'll never be a 1911 trigger but there's a lot you can do to improve on it. You do not have to have your slide milled to install a reflex sight. I believe most all of the available reflex sights have mounts that install into your rear sight dovetail i.e. Burris Fast Fire , Leupold, Trijicon etc. The only point of the sight base milled into the slide is so that your can co-witness the existing fixed sight. Might be important to you, not to me. I use a Trijicon with a base the replaces my rear sight. If you want to modify or enhance your G-20 Google search is your friend.............good luck!

Congrats on the G20!!

I highly recommend the 200 gr WFNGC hardcast from Beartooth Bullets.

http://www.beartoothbullets.com/bulletselect/index.htm

Look for the 10mm link to the left of the page.

Great bullets. Spendy. Slow delivery times. They make them when you order them. This bullet is an absolute hammer. It is more of a hunting/defensive bullet, and not necessarily a range/blasting type of bullet. Others around here can recommend lead bullets if you are looking for economical range fodder.

I would suggest trying them in the stock barrel before investing in an aftermarket barrel. They give good enough, not spectacular, accuracy in my G20. For what I use them for (defensive wilderness carry), the accuracy is just fine for my purposes. Plus that profile can cause some feeding issues in the tight "match" chambers of some aftermarket barrels. Absolutely no feeding issues in my G20 stock barrel. So I'd give them a shot (pun not intended -- or was it, HAH!), and see how they run.

Leading is a non-issue. I run them a bit more than 1200 fps with a charge of Accurate no. 9. It is a deep-penetrating, hard-hitting round.

Thanks, everyone I guess I assumed you had to have your slide milled,Because of the few I had seen were for the co witness. And Taterhead, as a matter of fact I ordered some of beartooths 200 grainers as soon as I got the gun,been using them for years in my .45 Colts in the 300 grn and up.Great bullets and great advice. I have been searching and spending way to much time on the computer since I got my glock. Does any of you have a dawson precision adj rear sight and do you recommend it. If so what height of front do you run with it. Thanks and Nice bunch of people here

I have loaded those too with good success. Double Tap used to load the Beartooth WFNGC in their factory loads before they insourced casting. That bullet profile is almost identical to the BT, but I find the quality of BT to be superior. Either works great, in my opinion.

You don't "need" an AM barrel for shooting the WFN gas-checked bullets if you ask me, although you might get a bit better accuracy. Then again, the stock barrel may shoot them fine. Honestly I think if you were to get the bullets sized from Beartooth about .001" bigger than normal (say, .402"), they would probably be GREAT for the stock barrel but I've yet to test my hypothesis.

Either way, the WFNGC is a VERY hard hitting bullet for the 10mm, whether you get DT's load or load your own with either DT or Beartooth's bullet.

Go for it!

Why do I carry a 10mm?

I got one of these and love it,

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...OD=950&CAT=240

with the extra length, 6'', you can use 40s&w brass to shoot
this ay 1300fps cheep,

http://www.midsouthshooterssupply.co...ld_401-175_TC_

mine comes out of the mold at 183gr. Super Acc too.

This one I seat to ,225 in 40 s&w brass and also got 1300fps,

http://noebulletmolds.com/NV/product...sqqefok7g5l636

not a true WFN but close and it feeds better.

I went a little crazy and also got these and an extra g20,

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...175327&CAT=240

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...OD=947&CAT=240

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...623362&CAT=240

Then I went bad again and got this, a 45 cal slide,

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...D=1179&CAT=247

and had LW do the standard picatinny cut, the first one, so I
could use iron sights,

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...=156471&CAT=10

and then I had to get these too, 45acp and 460 rowland barrels,

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...OD=959&CAT=240

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...OD=964&CAT=237

http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.a...175326&CAT=240

and this one in a .460R

The worst thing is I did almost the same thing with the G27
and the G30.

The good news is I already had the bullet molds for the 45
and the 460 because like you I shoot mostly revolves.
