Why should I not buy a Glock 29 SF?

I'm selling a Kahr MK9 which will give me enough money to possibly buy a glock 27 or a glock 29 SF.

I have a glock 26.

Can you use a full size barrel in a glock 29 SF? Any negative side effects to this?


why should I not buy one? Give me a good reason



mmmmmm power

You might post this to the 10 Ring, too, (http://glocktalk.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=38) to check into answers to your questions, but I don't think you can use the G20 barrel in a G29; you'd have to get an aftermarket barrel if you want a longer barrel for the 29.

Ammo for the 10mm is best ordered online, so check availability to see for yourself.

dougader is correct, the lugs are different, just like the G21/30 lugs.

Why are you selling the Kahr? I thought you loved that gun.

Don't let the haters talk you out of a G29, it's a great gun. Ammo is not THAT much more than 45ACP.

I feel the same way the 10mm is an awsome round i think that once you get used to it you will be very happy you made the move. Most of the people who bad mouth the 10mm. are those first wh have little if any experience with it and those who perceive it to be cost prohibitive.

I say that it's just like anything else take the .357 Sig for example there are still those who bad mouth that round saying things like it's just too expensive to shoot. if you are a reloader you will enjoy it very much. If not then of course you will have to work within the limit of your available funds.

Now that said, Buy the Model 29 carry it with absolute confidence and know that not much will over power it. It will not rip your wrist off it is a hand full but certainly a tameable beast.

Long live the 10mm.

Is it true that it is unsupported and it wrecks the brass?

I know nothing about reloading, have never done it, but may in the future if I chose to buy such a beast.

I'm also curious about having a round that would be good against black bears or other large creatures while hiking However I may want a full length barrel for that. Would the glock 29 be able to take the pressure of a full length barrel? Where would I buy one from?

I hear you. I owned, carried and competed with a G19 for ages and then just got a bug and switched to a G30. Sometimes I miss that G19, but I love the G30 too.

Have you posted the Kahr for sale?

You really need to start reading in the 10 Ring. Guys have even hunted american bison with the 10mm. Not that I recommend it.

Mike McNett of Double Tap has loads of loading data posted in the 10 reloading room here, and lots of guys have carried the G29 and G20 for personal protection and as a woods gun.

The stock barrel is pretty good, but if you are going to really push loads looking for that nuclear load to carry then a Lone Wolf, KKM, Jarvis, etc. offers more chamber support than stock.

I had a G20 and shot DT ammo through the stock barrel with no bad bulging problems like some people see with their 40 S&W Glocks.

I would not feel undergunned with a 10mm as a woods gun unless the black bears ran exceptionally large. Grizzly or Alaskan browns are another story. The DT with the 200 grain XTP bullet is a formidable round.

If my G20 had been the SF frame, I'd still have it. I still have my DT ammo that's loaded with the 200 grain Beartooth hardcast slug because it was originally only offered as a limited, one-time offering. I always intended to get another 10mm. Now that the SF frame is here...

Desert Scout has posted his results with the 180 grain xtp bullet and successful deer hunting out to 80-100+ yards. Look for his posts. Glolt 20-91 has also posted good info.

A 10 milimeter is only one milimeter bigger than a 9 milimeteer, that may not be enough for woodland creatures....

And the .357 is just .1 mm bigger than the 9mm. The difference? The amount of powder behind the round and overall mass of the bullet.
