    Default GLOCK question:

    I have a unique opportunity, in that a member of my family now works in the production of firearms and parts for firearms. I would like to ask straightforward: WHO WOULD LIKE, OR KNOWS SOMEONE WHO WOULD LIKE A 16 inch GLOCK BARREL? How much would you be willing to pay?

    thanks in advance!

    Just saying, if it's a 16 inch barrel I'd want a stock with it too.

    Well, the average 6 inch Glock barrel costs $130 or so. For 16 inches I'd say $320-375 or so. What about a slide lond enough to fit the barrel?

    And a good stock, like one that can be used with the G-18. The tactical folding stocks are $120 on average, while the SBR ones are $520 on average. So for both, I'd pay minimum of $450 and a max of $900

    A 16" barrel is not going to work in a Glock pistol.

    They already have a block carbine kit. YouTube it.

    All the carbine kits I have seen use the pistol itself with its original barrel. The 16" barrel alone in a Glock pistol will not work.

    My comment was meant for the OP. Just wanted to point out an already available product if he wasn't aware.

    But since we're on the topic, why won't the 16" barrel work? My knowledge of gun mechanics goes about as far as stripping, cleaning, reassembling.

    Ya np its cool. Anyways, with just the barrel alone it is going to be long and front heavy for the firearm to operate normally. The operation on the Glock has the rear of the barrel tilting down when it is reloading. Now add another 10, 12, or 14 inches (depending on the Glock model number) of nothing helping or supporting that extra front weight, I see problems. You basically have a carbine. Just look at all the other 16" carbines, their barrels do not tilt for reloading. Unless there is one I have not seen or know about yet. I mean I'm not telling the guy to make it, if he wants to make it then more power to him. If it actually works without malfunctionig then I am proven wrong. No big deal but my understanding of things is, this will not work.

    Here is a quick vid of it operating.
