gave her 9 inches of pipe

The 10 RingHere it is! 9inch match barrel for my g20sf!
Story behind barrel is that guys wanted to build long range pistol; all the wqy to 100 yards. I have no range report, but will let her rip tomorrow.

Oh yeah I tried out strike in recoil reducer, and it is complete garbage. Fits well but definitely turns your pistol into a single shot. I tried bb, win, rem, and some 40s with same results

WOW! That's the longest glock barrel I've ever seen!

Congrats and can't wait for a range report...

Looks cool, looking forward to a range report. But isn't a 9 inch barrel a little impractical? I understand it's for competition, but still follow up shots gotta be tough unless you're on a bench. Personally id rather just grab a rifle

Its only for range/ hunting. I ccw a 29. Dont really feel that front heavy with mag full off 200 gr xtp. Also it slid into the slide nice. Now I don't believe an 11inch barrel would fit because of angle.

I mostly hog an deer hunt with my g20sf. Ive got a stock size lw, 6in lw, an now the 9. I plan on letting my gunsmith flute it to save little weight.

Well so far I cant find an holster that will work with makko sight and bushnell red dot. Might end up getting custom klydex or just put lanyard on it like they do overseas becsuse it can get heavy on long hikes. ...

Hello Twisted1, Have you run any rounds down that 9" pipe yet? I must say it is very interesting. If you can chrono some numbers that would be great!

I read were you want to get the barrel fluted...if you do you may need to have ift stress relieved after the machine work. I think they do a cryo process for stress relief down here in Louisiana.

Best regards!

Is that a virgin optic too? I'm curious how it will hold up to your 200gr hunting loads.
I'd think you'd have to chrono your loads out of that 9'' bbl to get MV and calc drop adj. at 100y+ w/ a 200g projectile. I've never seen any testing on a bbl that long in any glock! Love to know what your load is and how it shoots, pls. Adding a 6'' to my G20 made it feel like a diff pistol. I can't imagine a niner. Have fun and look forward to your report! Thank for pics too... love pics.

9 inch barrels is exactly what's needed to satisfy the evil desires of those of us who shoot 9x25 Dillon.

I'm serious. It's a cartridge that's intended to be full of rifle powder anyway, and would take advantage of this really really well. Somebody, maybe not the guys who did the OP's barrel, but almost anyone set up to cut rifling, should coordinate a project to make a short run of such barrels and there'd probably be several of us on GT who'd pitch in money to get one of them. Or crowd source it or something. Me, and I'll bet other guys too, would be willing to create any needed CAD models & provide a really uber-cool looking spiral fluted design for free, plus a threaded version. I could even get all the other machining done locally with people I know & who's work I trust, but I don't have any personal connections to a rifling source and wouldn't want to be the front man on something like this just to be test flying an untried vendor on something that's as make or break for the whole project, as rifling is on this one. If I'm going to do any more than throw two or three hundred bucks into the idea & let somebody else build it, I'd want to make sure these come out as match grade barrels good for shooting varmints at 75 yards and coming as close to the exploding ground hog experience as an auto pistol can get.

I'm thinking broach cut rifling would be the economical choice for a small run of barrels.

I solved the long 10mm pistol in a different manner....

T/C Contender...

Easy to carry two pistols (i.e a G29 or a G20 and a T/C)

But that said, that 9mm glock barrel is ridiculous. Of course anything that even borders on ridiculous is something that fits my personality....so I am jealous...

I am curious as to how it shoots. I had talked to lone wolf when they were first testing it. I had some ideas as to why it was shooting so much higher than stock. I think the 9in barrel on the semi auto pistol allows the barrel to unlock early due to extra time the bullet is in the barrel. That would throw them high. I really wonder what nuke loading might do.

Lone wolf first sold these 9 inch barrels in 9MM and .40

Notice they call them California models. The reason is off roster (safe gun list) handguns that we can't buy like Gen 4 Glocks can be imported with an extra long barrel and single shot magazine and sold to California customers. After the 10 day wait, we u turn the exempted gun back to the FFLs counter and legally swap back the normal parts. This is a big pain but it's the law.

Law enforcement is exempt from the roster.

If I want a Glock 20 Gen 4 I would need that 9 inch barrel to meet the States overall length exemption. So LoneWolf now makes these long barrels. They recently added 10MM and .45 ACP which I think is a good thing.

I am happy with my 6 inch barrels I however if Twisted1 comes back with a positive range report on the 9 inch barrel and it feeds and runs ok, I will get one.

Probably going to mess with the recoil spring a bit to cycle correctly.

Looking forward to some data.

Be well
Bob

I would have figured doubling the barrel length would increase velocity and, thereby, decrease the amount the bullet drops at the same range, so the POI would be higher.

This is definitely not a pipe dream!!!
Nice.
You know what would be nice, a barrel like that with an adjustable front sight at the end.

Yeah, I started thinking the same thing a few minutes after my last comment. With TC selling .44 Magnum barrels in 12 & 15" lengths, and with the inherent accuracy of that type gun over an automatic, 9" automatic barrels seems a lot less cool to me now.

They were getting 6 to 8 inch hight poi at 100 yards. That is more than the bullet even drop of out a 6in barrel. Hence the attempting to figure out why.
