Default Extended barrel - Pro's & Con's

How many Glockers have installed the extended barrel? i just polished my barrel partly out of boredom and wanted to modify a bit. Anyway, does the extended barrel help with accuracy or recoil or both? what about the cons if any?

If you can shoot good enough it will help with longer shots 25 yrds, to me the recoil felt the same, i was using the wolf barrel, i like em.

Sounds like a bad idea to me, most everything is a con. Cost, awkwardness, more recoil and little to no more accuracy. Have you seen Hickok45 shoot the short barrels out to 80 yards and beyond?

Yeah, hitting a gong at 230 yards twice in a row with a G23. Incredible!
