Storm Lake Extended Ported Glock Barrel

Glock 22 Gen 3 in .40 S&W. I just got this new barrel yesterday for $150. Looks really cool. I can't say I thought that it made much of a difference in recoil; however, maybe it was because I was using minimum loads.

Wow that looks pretty sweet. Besides recoil have you noticed any other slight differences in handling/shooting?

Better hope you never have to use it at night.

No real differences but I think it might be the ammo. I am using BVAC Remanufactured Ammo which only has a muzzle velocity of 950 FPS. Maybe if I had some hotter loads I would notice a difference.

Glad it made a difference in recoil.

BEST pictures I have ever seen of a real world shot using a ported barrel.

Excellent catch.

Put some 155 grn monsters through that thing and get some pictures of that if you can.

That porting is supposed to work better the stronger the rounds you use.

Honestly, I haven't noticed much difference with ported barrels in my Glocks either. I didn't try swapping them out after each magazine though. Maybe that would show more of a difference?

I have a normal drop in one for using cast bulets. I really rate it, it seems to be a tad more sensative for reloads, but thats about the only negative i can say.

Actually those shots of me firing are frames from a video. I have software that can extract each frame in a video. There are usually 30 frames per second. Also can anyone recommend a brand of .40 that will make my porting work better?

I have extended ported barrel in my G22 and where it counts is rapid fire with +P ammo, it made big difference in dumping hi cap mag at targets with hot ammo

The higher the pressure and the longer the projectile sits just forward of the porting, the more recoil reduction. To really experiance the max effect of porting, maybe buffalobore 180gr or some of the doubletap stuff http://www.buffalobore.com/index.php...duct_list&c=25

Why? Because the barrel porting works 'better' with high velocity ammunition, and you would have the option of using two calibers with one gun. I personally like the ballistics of the .357 Sig cartridge over the .40

nice barrel. looks great. but.....

why not get a 357 sig...its similar to the famed 357mag in a semiauto case. it will work in a 40 mag. only down side i have w/ it is its alot harder to load due to the shape of the bullet. but i use a speed loader so its not really a problem

Maybe I will try it eventually. For now I am focusing my money on reloading equipment and I think I want to get a 1911.
