I did some seraching but i'm not quite convinced on who makes a quality aftermarket barrel. Why aftermarket instead of another factory... hmmm.... just for BLING i guess, stainless is preferred but not mandatory. it'll be for a G21. i almost bought a 21sf a few days back but i love my good ol' G21 so much, i'm just gonna give it a new barrel.

Usually you go aftermarket so you can shoot lead bullets in your glock.

I have the Lone Wolf barrel in my G29 (.40 conversion). I would have preferred black but it was only offered in silver.

Storm Lake also makes good barrels for Glock.

2 of the best barrel makers:

Bar-sto
http://www.barsto.com/category_main.cfm?ID=GLOCK

Briley
http://www.briley.com/barrels.aspx


I know someone who can hit a piece of chopstick in one shot with a Briley barrel in a Glock. The distance was 25 yards! I was amazed by it. The guy is a shooting range owner, a gun smith, and a competitive shooter.

You have a G21, get a conversion barrel for 10mm and a couple of g20 mags.
and TADAAAAA you have a b@D@ss 10mm monster. I'd recommend an aftermarket conversion barrel as from what I understand, they support the round more and are more accurate.

thanks for the responses guys.
i would like to have a drop-in barrel, not something that has to go out to get fitted

I use a KKM barrel for my G17 upper...
Works great, no fitting required.

I have extra barrels for each of my Glocks. All Storm Lake.

The difference is in the twist. Glock Right, Stofm lake Left.

I use StormLake for my aftermarket Glock barrels. Have had two on two differnt guns. No fitting required and they are a bit tighter than factory.

Lone wolf offers to refinish barrels to the factory black oxide color for 25$...Only down fall is that you gotta wait several weeks for them to do each batch.

Unless you hand fit the barrel, it will be no better than factory. You can't turn a G21 into a $3,000 1911 with a drop in barrel. You could get really lucky and have a tight drop in, but that's usually not the case. Of get a drop in for shooting exclusively lead bullets.

I have had really good results with both the "drop in" and fitted barrel from Bar-Sto. While I have gone the fitted route on my Sig P229, which involves sending the gun away for the fitting, I have picked up four other barrels from them and could not be happier. They have a LEO discount as well, if that matters.
