Sure-----can you be a little more specific as to what you would like me to
cite ? What do you refer to as "otherwise" ?

Browse info:

http://www.thegunzone.com/glock/kb-notes.html
(Golck has weak,unsupported barrels)
Much more info available if you care to see.
Check out "Glock ka-booms "on the web !

Citing the Gun Zone on GLOCKs being unsafe is like citing Moveon.org as to how good of a President Bill Clinton was. Dean Spier has a hard on against GLOCK, and manipulates or ignores facts on his "ka-boom" reports to better fit his agenda...

That's odd. IIRC, NATO spec'ed 9x19mm is over pressured when compared to a CIP or SAAMI spec'ed 9mm Parabellum.

Comparing 9mmx19 NATO and 9mm Parabellum is similar to comparing .223 Rem to 5.56x45 NATO.

Hey ranger sxt---YOU asked for me to cite my references ! If you don't like them ,please refer to the remainder of my post and......look around the web.
The reference that I quoted is only a fraction of the info available....need
I quote more ? Please note that I use a KKM aftermarket
,fully supported,barrel and comp. in my gun and have had nothing but trouble free shooting !

Sounds like we may need to agree to disagree ?
( no opinions here !)
BTW----do you have any references to cite that may be pertinent ?

Glock barrels are not heat treated and thus will fail. It is not a matter of IF but when. The net is full of Glock KB stories..Glock denies a problem but settles with injurred LEO's and tells civilian claims to go bump.

Replace the barrel and avoid the issue.
Hope this reference application works----------------------

Far too many GLOCKS have been blown up with Factory loads...even more with reloads !

Glocks barrels DO NOT support the rear of the case like SAAMI spec replacement barrels.

PLEASE heed this warning and be safe !
One more for the masses(or ranger xst)

Right. None of those are referencing the GLOCK barrels not handling SAAMI pressures. Since that's what factory ammo is loaded to, I would find it very suspect if GLOCK did not make their barrel be able to stand up to it. You have posted one person who had his gun blow-up on him, someone who claims to be a gunsmith, but makes even more ludicrous claims than you do and a review of a book. None of those can be considered an actual source saying that GLOCK barrels are not up to SAAMI pressures...

Sorry that you fail to see any value,at all, in my offerings----
Perhaps some other thread would be to both our benefit.

Thanks for sharing the links to sights that you reference as being
your pods of wisdom.
I always try to learn from senior members with their infinite knowledge and learned postings.
