Comped Glock 10mms

2 of my "comped" Glock 10mms (ie KKM comped barrels).

...and my "hunting" carry G20, when I'm hunting w/a long gun.

Good shooting

I have been following a similar thread on another forum. A Glock armorer stated that a KKM barrel and 10mm Magazine is a good place to start for a conversion of a Glock 45 (G 30 or G 21) into a 10mm. He further stated that some guns may need extractor work or even a 10mm extractor, but the mag and barrel work for many folks. I may give it a try.

Glock 20

I have not seen KKM post (ie on their website) a Glock 21 conversion barrel to 10mm. I "believe" @ 1 time KKM did provide that product.

So, this Glock armorer is saying that a KKM G20 10mm barrel will work in a G21?

No conversion, only a straight 10mm barrel for the G 20. As I posted above, he stated if you wanted to do this, try the barrel and mag first, but you may have issues with the extractor. Worse case he said replace the extractor when shooting 10mm. Other in the thread chimed in about replacing the RSA.

Would the G20 be a good choice for backpacking in Montana and Wyoming?
I have traditionally carried a 44 magnum with big loads. Shooting the S&W Mountian gun with heavy loads is not easy. The Redhawk is much better to shoot but its heavy.

It seems that the G20SF would be easy to control and shoot - light too.
What do you think?

I would trust my G20 for Montana & Wyoming

WTB Glock 29

This is a long shot but i'm looking for an early Gen 3 without the forward rail. I Would like it to be in like new condition. Odd request but I do not want a rail and cant find any out there. Someone has to have one of these 10mm out there that they don't shoot anymore.

I think what you want is really a Gen 2.5. Why no rail?

Looking for a possible carry option in 10mm. In the pictures I can find of them they look less bulky towards the muzzle. I could be wrong. Thanks for info on gen 2.5 I had no idea. I really wish Glock would make a slimline in 10mm like the Glock 36.

I doubt the slides are any different and any holster that fits one should fit the other. The Gen 3 G 29 SF and the Gen 4 G 29 have slightly smaller but highly desirable grips. Plus over a decade of engineering improvements.

Some have cried foul about them, I have 2 Gen 4 Glocks and both serve proudly.

The Gen 3 G 29SF is probably more prevalent is about the same sized grip and would probably be cheaper.

I moved this thread to the Glock 10mm thread in the weapons to get your questions more exposure.

Well this is some good info. I am also looking for a Delta Elite. I have a 10mm MP5 clone that upon running Double Tap 180gr 1250 fps fmj through made me an immediate fan of this caliber. I want a few options in this round. From what ive been reading, the DE can only take up to about what I was shooting through the MP5 before the case starts bulging around where the web is unsupported by the chamber. Which I think is fine for what I intend for the DE. Anyone have case bulging issues or a seperation failure with a DE?

I see quite a few of you live in mountain states and have the same idea for people/bear protection. I think that Glock 29 would be perfect for the hotter hardcast loads in a close to compact package. Ive had bear go through my trash too many times and I prefer my 44 stay in my truck. I want something I dont mind keeping on me around the house or hikes up the mountain behind the house.

Those of you with experience any suggestions on handloads, barrel swap with 29 as well as handloads for DE that I can work up to?

Have a Gen 4 34 no issues at all.
I might order a Gen 4 20 if I can't find a DE.

(of course, if knew bear was in the midst, would grap by 45-70 Thumper instead)
I have been considering going this route and getting rid of my Ruger Blackhawk in .44 mag. For my environment I do like the stainless but it wouldn't be a deal breaker. Primarily I want to be able to carry in my Kit Bag on my chest in lieu of my hip which would help some with the moisture problems as well.

Me too and the weight is my main complaint now. I looked at the Taurus 444 in titanium but the appeal of having more than six rounds has me double thinking.
