    Glock 20 10mm long slide build started!

    Lone Wolf Distributors finally got 6.61" threaded barrels in for the G20, so one and a thread cap has been ordered. Now to wait for the backordered Glock 20 Longslide top to get in. I've only been waiting to start building this thing for 6 months.

    Sweet.

    What all it needed for the conversion? Just a slide and barrel?

    Yep. All together the upper assembly is about $500 worth of parts. It needs a custom spring and washer assembly, but other than that it's pretty straightforward. The stripped slide is $250, bbl and thread protector $150 shipped. I can use the bbl in my regular slide in the meantime.

    Beside a longer sight radius, does this help toget more out of your beast loads?

    Oh yeah, it really tames the recoil and reduces muzzle flip. The one I shot with my normal heavy load had about the same recoil as a 9mm. Having a 6.6"bbl will also eek out another 30-40fps from my nuclear loads.

    I hope you like that barrel as much as I do. I only have about a box through mine, but I think it was money well spent.

    you should really rethink about not coming to the shootenanny. Bring the family, and talk your mom and dad into coming down for a day.

    Looking forward to this build, although I am not a big glock fan I don't see many others tackling long slides in 10mm.

    Today was my first opportunity to shoot with the new barrel. Like all LWD barrels I've bought it needed a little polishing as they deliberately cut the chambers tight. Shoot until there was a failure to feed, polish a little, repeat. Started out every 2-3 rounds and by the time I was finished it fed a full magazine of factory ammo no problem. The side by side comparison with the stock barrel was easily noticeable. The 6.6" barrel was much milder recoil and probably about an inch more accurate at 50' than the stock barrel. I put 50 rounds into a 4" group without really trying with only 2-3 fliers just outside that ring except the one I jerked and hit the tape on top of the target...

    I hope the slides come in, I can't wait to get the full build done!

    Yah, necroposting. I've posted this pic elsewhere here but I never updated this thread.

    Pictured is the finished gun, the original slide with a lwd .40 conversion barrel, the stock 10mm barrel, and a box each of .40 and 10mm, all in one case.



    I now have about 3k rounds through it and it was starting to occasionally fail to fire. Light off center primer strikes. The barrel was not tipping up all the way to complete battery. Finally figured that the recoil spring, a 22lb spring, was getting weak. Replaced it and it is running dead reliable again. Comparing the old spring to a new one and it was an inch and a half shorter. Something to keep an eye on. Several replacement springs are on the way as well as another ss guide rod.

    This thing is crazy fun to shoot and makes the 10mm fairly gentle.

    Glock 40 should be making an appearance soon somewhere.
    Too old for this, I'm getting.

    Don't own a Glock and have never shot one, I like what I've seen in the pictures of the 40 with the optical sight. Might be an easy gun for geezers with bad eyes to shoot.

    I am anxiously waiting for the glock 40 to hit the shelves, I am hoping to see it at my blue label dealer.
