Why Upgrade To An Aftermarket Glock Barrel?

Even though the OEM Glock barrel with polygonal rifling is pretty damn good and will do the job for the average gun owner, there are two primary reasons to upgrade to an aftermarket Glock barrel.

First and foremost is accuracy.

Most shooters will never practice out past 25 yards with their pistols. But if you want to stretch the effective range of your pistol to 50 yards and beyond you’ll need a match-grade barrel.

A good quality match-grade Glock barrel will consistently cut your groups in half at 50 yards.

The second reason is to have a threaded barrel for a suppressor or compensator.

If you’re thinking at all about adding a suppressor or comp to your Glock down the road, do yourself a favor and get a threaded barrel.

If you don’t want to constantly be buying and changing barrels, then getting a threaded barrel is a good idea. They also up the cool factor of your gun.

Let’s get into the Glock barrels that we’ve used over the years and recommend.

Best Glock Barrels

Faxon Firearms

Faxon Glock barrels are given a PVD or black Nitride coating to increase resistance to surface wear, lubricity, and barrel life. All barrels are conventionally rifled for a wider variety of compatible ammunition, including cast lead.

They also drop into factory-spec slides with no gunsmithing required. A more consistent, tighter lockup than OEM is guaranteed thanks to their better-than-factory tolerances.

Faxon offers both threaded and non-threaded barrel options for your Glock handguns. Faxon Glock barrels are universally compatible with generations 1-5.

Wilson Combat Glock Barrel

Wilson Combat Glock barrels are fully machined from aircraft-grade stainless steel blanks and heat-treated to R/C 40 for maximum service life. Critical manufacturing tolerances are held to less than .0005" (one-half thousandth of an inch!).

To guarantee better accuracy, extreme care has been taken to assure that the chamber is glass smooth and perfectly concentric with the bore. In their barrel tests, they’ve routinely obtained test groups of 1/2" at 25 yards.

Throughout the manufacturing process, each barrel undergoes multiple quality-control checks, with a detailed final inspection prior to receiving the Wilson name. These barrels are compatible with all Generations of Glock handguns.

Glock markets itself as perfection out of the box. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t take an already-proven design and modify it to suit your style and needs.

Swapping out the stock barrel for one of these aftermarket barrels is just one of many things you can do to elevate the performance of your Glock pistol.
