Lone Wolf Distributors (LWD) is selling a line of ported barrels for the Glock. As the press release points out, ported barrels are popular with competitive shooters. Having a ported barrel reduces felt recoil and muzzle flip by redirecting gases out the top of the barrel, resulting in optimized weapon control and accurate follow-up shots.
The first variant offered by LWD is a series of externally 2 ported barrels. These are longer than stock barrels but reduce muzzle rise by at least 50 percent. There is also no reduction in bullet velocity when compared to stock barrels, the news release states.
Meanwhile, LWD’s internally 4 ported barrels have the same length as a stock barrel, but they reduce muzzle rise by 75 percent or more. LWD warns that carbon will be blown on the front sight. However, this may be fixed with a firearms solvent. In addition, bullet velocity will be reduced by 5 to 8 percent compared to stock barrels.
LWD recommends 6 ported barrels for maximum muzzle reduction. These boast both an internal 4 port and external 2 port option.
These pre-fit, drop in barrels are precision machined from heat treated 416R stainless steel. They have an oversized lock-up area which enables improves shot-to-shot accuracy, a polished feed ramp and bore, and a diamond turned exterior. See below for additional details.
