Default where to buy an unchambered g17 barrel?

I have a fantastic project, but I need the last piece of the puzzle, where can I buy an unchambered glock 17L or glock 34 barrel?

I want to use a milder cartridge for my daughter to use, I dont care for power factor or anything like that.

by the way I want to shoot lead to make it afordable...

thanks

Joe A.

Two problems- do not know of anyone that make barrels for a Glock except, well, Glock. Second problem- Glock rifling is polygonal, and not for lead bullets. Danger, messy, harmful, blood, first aid, bad ju-ju.

Ditto what is said above by c3. Have you looked into a .22lr conversion kit?

Bar sto make barrels for a Glock. and they don't use the polygonal rifling so you can fire lead slugs.

As for as the unchambered part outside of a really good tool maker I don't know. It would seem better sense to buy a 22 or reload and download the ammo where it will still cycle but not be as rough on the shooter.

KKM, Bar-Sto, Lone Wolf, Storm Lake, EFK, Briley,Wilson Combat, and
probably a few more ALL make barrels for Glocks. AFAIK they all use
conventional rifling and are fine with lead bullets.

That said--an unchambered barrel is going to be .355/.356 bore diameter. The only possible caliber I can think of that might be "milder" than 9x19 and fit the bore diameter is .380. W-A-Y more trouble than it could possibly be worth. Extraction issues, magazine issues, functioning issues--

Put an aftermarket barrel in the 17 so you can shoot lead. ISMI 13 lb
recoil spring, and download 9x19. If you don't want to get into reloading,
the Remington-UMC 115 FMJ factory load is about as mild as it gets. It
won't make USPSA minor power factor from my guns.

Default When my twin daughters were 12...

They had no problems with a Glock 17.

That was in 1986.

A colt .380 mustang had more recoil.

Now one has a Glock 33 in.357 auto. (Sig) and the other a

Glock 23 in .40 S&W.

A leftover first off duty carry pistol.
