Honest question. What was wrong with the old barrel and spring?
Alot of web sites state not to shoot reloads through a Glock barrel, so I bought
a KKM just in case. Will give it a try and if it doesn't perform well I will use the
original Glock barrel and take my chance with new or once fired brass and
copper jacketed bullets. The spring was just a thought, will see if it works or
not.

I run factory barrels on 3 of mine, and a steady diet of reloads, some have never seen factory ammo. Never any problems.

I think the comment about reloads in Glock barrels has more to do with the use of lead bullets than just reloads in general. The polygonal rifling of the Glock barrels is apparently not the best with pure lead projectiles, probably because the lead is likelier to leave bad streaks on the flats of the polygonal rifling.

@Redhawk100 is correct. Jacketed bullets are fine. Lead is an issue. It鈥檚 worth the hassle to get polygonal rifling. A Glock barrel lasts forever and is easy to clean鈥f you are in to all that cleaning stuff.

@rmichael63 is waiting on the new Glock coming out in 41 magnum. Then he will come out of the closet faster than Sam Briton.
