Glock barrels

Olympic Arms is now selling barrels to convert your Glock 22 to shoot 9mm. The barrels are made of 416 stainless steel and use broach rifling with traditional lands and grooves. Olympic Arms specifically states on the company website that the barrels are “excellent for shooting lead bullets.”

These 4.5″ barrels sell for $109.

Olympic Arms is also selling replacement barrels for the Glock 19. These barrels are made with the same material and in the same style as the Glock 22 conversion barrel above. The price on these is also $109.

According to a Facebook post made by Olympic Arms on 13 August 2015, these are the first of many new pistol barrels the company will be offering. Barrels for SIG SAUER, Browning and H&K pistols are just a few that will be introduced in the near future.

    FWIW: Olympic has offered pistol barrels in the past. I seem to remember them offering .41 Action Express conversion barrels for the Browning Hi-Power back in the late 1980s/early 1990s.

    does any one even shoot non-jacketed lead anymore out of semi-auto pistols?

      @sean In my capacity as USPSA match director at two clubs, I get to watch about 20,000-24,000 rounds per month hitting berms, not counting the other matches I attend.
      Apart from about half the Production Division guys, just about every one of those bullets is non-jacketed.
      Polymer coating has taken over, so most of the lead bullets I see now are coated.
      But yeah, my significant other unloads about 25K lead bullets a year in her Limited and Single Stack guns just by herself.
      I shoot a couple, too.
      What with the coatings nowadays, the advantages of jacketed bullets are much fewer and less important.
      The only jacketed bullets we shoot are factory-loaded personal protection ones.
