Glock after-market barrels: LoneWolf Dist, KKM..

I was reading over a few after market Glock barrels for the model 22 .40S&W and wanted to ask what members here thought of the KKM and/or LoneWolf Dist line(s)?
KKM looks like a well made product but the LoneWolf Glock barrels cost less and are also made of 416 grade stainless steel.

I'm thinking of buying a used Model 22 .40 and buying new after market barrels in .40, .357sig & 9x19mm.
The www.GlockStore.com barrel descriptions also state the LoneWolf Dist Glock barrels are; "drop-in" with no gunsmithing. Does that mean the barrel is ready to fit in a model 22 w/o any other parts or service? Or would it need special pins or lugs like a Beretta 92/96 pistol?
I never owned a Glock pistol and I'm not well versed in the gunsmith work related to Glock parts or services.

Thanks 1,000,000;

The barrels should be drop-in.

You should be aware that due to differences in the case head size, you may experience ejection/extraction issues with the 9mm conversion barrel. From what I've seen, most of them work ok, but I still wouldn't recommend them for self-defense applications.

If you're looking for a used G22, make sure you get the 3 pin frame.

All it would do is replace you original factory barrel. Just field strip the gun and when reassembling switch the original factory barrel with the new one. I have a Storm Lake barrel in my Glock 22 which is extended and ported. Works really great!

9x19mm barrels, uses...

Thanks for the input so far.
I was looking into the KKM barrel in 9x19mm for G/armed security details.
I may just order that barrel & have the GlockStore.com pistolsmiths install-fit it to the frame.

The used model 22 .40 is sold here; www.JGsales.com . It's listed as a Gen03 model in very good/+ condition for about $350.00 USD.

I also saw a new LE surplus model 22 but it's price is $559.00.
