I notice some people on glocktalk use glock 19 barrel with g26....was curious if the full size will work with compact?

I put it in my compact and it looks kinda funny, but it fits in there fine and visually I see no differences in specs at the lug or hood between the two barrels. Same goes for the full size slide on the compact (except the guide rod is exposed). I don't have the balls to try it out though, but I think it would work out fine.

Wouldn't the cone shaped barrel be a problem? I would think the slide is too short to engage the widest portion of the barrel, yielding shitty accuracy.

I got to thinking about the cone muzzle last night while I was supposed to be sleeping. That might be a problem.

Damn shame about the barrel "cone?". It would be nice if the barrels swapped out. We have these stupid barrel length restrictions up here in Canada (105mm/4.133" or less is prohibited) and this would have been a great, and simple, mod to set us up with compacts
.

How much is it exposed? Got any pics
. Looks like there would be aboot a 1/2" of spring exposed.

I would think it would probably be ok to fire but yeah, accuracy would probably not make it worth the effort.



The only option I can think of (for my problem) is a frame chop like the one being done on some Glocks. Not as simple with the M&P, but do-able. Or S&W can start making them like this just for me :wink: http://mp-pistol.com/boards/viewtopic.php?...ighlight=#20027

It's a great trade off. The cone muzzle makes for a really accurate design. I'm sure somebody will start making extended barrels.
