have him the check the barrel, and see if it looks like its smooth, or if the inside looks like old concrete. This is what a new barrel looks like: glock barrel rifling - TheFiringLine Forums

I'll let him know to check his barrel. I never even thought to check that.

I would check the barrel like TSP recommended. Another thing to consider is try it with a different brand or weight of ammunition and see if you get the same results.

If you can, find someone with a boresight. That will tell you if there is a problem with the sight alignment or the barrel not being true. It won't tell you if the barrel rifling is bad but it should give a good indication of where the barrel points.

Did he get the G22 as a LE trade-in? Mine is and the bore's like new even though it's probably original from 1997 (because the caliber is marked the old way, 40S&W not 40). LE trade-ins are gone over by an armorer and supposedly upgraded when necessary. And Glock barrels last forever but of course anything can happen to an individual gun.

However, you said the G23 was a problem too - I don't see two Glocks being bad and dominated by a HiPoint, of all things.

The 23 wasn't too bad. Still not as accurate as I would have expected them to be.

Can a person wear out a Glock barrel with anything resembling normal use?

Depends on your definition of normal use. A professional shooter might equate normal use to shooting 3k rounds a week. A bus driver that shoots on the weekends might say 100 rounds a week is normal. Just depends on the shooter what normal is.

Try cleaning the G22 and see if that helps. Also, some G22s like 165gr
ammo and others like 180gr. It does make a difference.
