Hi folks -

Does anyone have a photo of the of the chamber-end of a Glock 17, 19, or 26 barrel, preferably Gen 3?

I'm trying to diagnose a feeding problem on an early G19.

Thanks!

I hope these help...

Anything specific you are looking for?

What kind of feed issues are you having?
Those help very much, thanks! I have a very old G19 that won't eject a loaded 124gr Gold Dot - the bullet is too long and jams against the barrel hood. I took it over to Glock, and they said the older barrels weren't designed for as broad a range of ammunition as newer ones, and that a new barrel would fix my problem. Naturally, curiosity causes me to want to understand exactly what the changes are.

You can see that with your barrel, the right upper edge of the barrel hood is cut at a much more upward angle than on my old barrel (new left, old right):


The lower area of metal on the right side of my barrel hood catches the leading edge of the bullet when unloading a live round and jams the gun up very tightly.

Options are to buy a new barrel, or break out the dremel...

I would dremel it.
Done this before with Perfect success no issues shots anything now!!

Just remember you can always cut more if needed out. But you can never replace if you done to much .
