    Hey Guys,

    I'm looking at picking up a Glock chambered in .40 the two models I'm looking at are the G22 or G35 I'm just curious as to whether or not it is worth the added cost for the compensated model.

    Also how do Glock pistols handle reloads? I read that you have to use FMJ bullets due to the Glock's barrel. I use FMJ on all of my reloads (.380, 9mm, .357mag, and .45 ACP), so I just wanted to make sure.

    Thanks :wavey:

    Compensated? Meh. I haven't shot one so I can't speak personally but I wouldn't.

    Your intended use will determine 22 vs 35.

    As far as shooting reloads through polygonal barrels, yes, it's a bad idea to shoot lead bullets if you're not going to be OCD about cleaning the barrel. Some people shoot them with no qualms, some are adamantly opposed. I don't reload so I can't speak personally but people I trust say that as long as you run a bore snake through it every ~100 rounds it's fine.

    I'd err on teh side of caution and either shoot coated bullets or replace the barrel.

    I use all the bullets I reload with are FMJ so sounds like I'm buying the Glock. I think I'll just get the compensated one :dunno:

    If I remember right Yar is a fan of the "C" models.

    With regards to reloads... I shoot moly coated 9MM in my OEM barrel without issues. I clean about every 500 rounds. Reloading the higher pressure cartridges (.40, .357sig) requires a little extra care to ensure your brass is in good condition, and you might need a U die or GRX die to remove the "Glock bulge".

    Does the 35 come with a 'C' option?
    I would go with the 35 either way, and get the 'C' if it is an option. Especially if this is just going to be a target gun.

    I love my 23C.

    For target use, I'd be tempted to go with the 9mm 34 just for the difference in ammo cost. Since you are reloading .40 this may not be an issue but it is nice to be able to pick up a few hundred rounds of the cheap stuff for blasting ammo.

    I've shot one of the c-model 19s. While I've read complaints about the flash from the comp I didn't think it was all that noticeable even in low light at an indoor range.

    The 35 does not come in a C model, the G22 does. While I'm a big fan of compensated pistols, I only like them when it's done right. What the glock C models are is ported not compensated. A compensator is an attachment at the end of the barrel with chambers for the gasses to expand and baffles to direct them to counter muzzle flip and soften felt recoil. A ported barrel also works to a lesser extent if done correctly and with the right ammo.

    The glock c models have two ports and they are not configured to do very much. Also most factory ammo is loaded with fast burning powder so it does not generate the needed gas. Those of us running real compensated pistols load our own ammo with slow burning powder such as hs6, 3n37 ect. While the compensated glocks may feel a little softer recoiling it is probably because the ports are bleeding off pressure. From our experiments each port is 10 -20 feet per second depedning on size and location.

    Cliffs ... Yar does not recomend the C model glocks. You want a real compensated glock. Do it with a extended threaded barrel such as the kkm on a 9mm glock 17, with reloads 125 9mm fmj with 8.2gr hs6

    Woah, woah woah. Are you using a standard Glock barrel? I thought my reloads were fairly hot at 7.4gr of HS6

    no you have to use some sort of "match barrel". This means a kkm pre fit, kkm gunsmith fit, barsto gunsmith fit, or briley semi drop in. All other barrels including glock factory and lone wolf need not apply as you will blow up your shit.

    My 125gr zero's are doing 1380 fps though my compensated barrel. In my glock 35 /w 9mm conversion barrel it does 1400. The ammo is very unpleasant to shoot though a uncompensated barrel. Gives you a good sting in the hand.

    I could of sworn I read somewhere that your carry gun was compact or sub-compact "C" model. Maybe it was your bosses?

    yeah my boss carries a G26 with a extended barrel (g19 barrel cut 1" past the end of the slide.) The end of the barrel has a single large square cut sort of like a chamber but with no baffle. I should take pictures of it.

    I have a 31C and I don't think the compensation negates the noise penalty.
