    Default Glock 20 Long Slides

    These are from Lone Wolf. The other three are for 3 soon to by happy fellas! This is so they can look but not touch till their hitch is up.

    I plan to go shoot sunday and test out the new slide and truglo TFO sights. Pretty nice fit and finish!! Everything so far has dropped right in. I had to file the front sight to fit, then use pliers to gently get in it, very snug. Just how some sights are, not the slide.

    My spring bear hunt gun is almost ready! Last part should be here tomorrow.

    Sweet man. Now you just need to send it off to Customized Creationz for a high polish barrel and slide job. Sending my newly acquired G20 slide/barrel there soon.

    So far it has been a free upgrade. I sold the stock slide to pay for this one, no way I am gonna switch back! Sold the stock bbl 2 years ago and got the KKM 6"

    I like the dull stainless look. To flashy and bears might see me coming! The nice thing is it fits in my alaska sportsman holster for a 6" auto just fine. I love that rig. Gun is a little heavier now, but with a mag with 12rounds it should ballance nicely. Sights are way cool, green 24/7 with fiber optic in front of the tritium. Will post a report if I get to shoot it at the range, or might just shoot it if I go for some bunnies.

    Or you could do it yourself. A wee bit of searching on GT would reveal LOTS of threads on this. PM member bowtie over there...he's the resident expert...

    10 second job to detail strip the slide (if you're slow )...another 12 to reassemble the 6"er....I'll have it done Weds for ya.


    Chris, can I see how far the TFO's hang over the opening?

    hunt_ak, it hangs over 3/8" in the cut out. In the lone pic you can see if you look really close.

    It is very easy to swap over. Only thing that was tricky was getting the sleeve that goes way down in there shoved in. I just got it started=will feel very tight. Then used the back spacer that goes on the firing pin to seat the sleeve all the way in. LWD was out of the tool for doing that. Steve at Alaska Tacticle didn't have one. The rest was easy! Hunt knows what is going on and will help his bro out I am sure. If you can get the guns here when you pick em up I will show you how to do it.

    I am not gonna head down bunny hunting today, snow storm the avalanche site says. So I might just go the range later. Gotta shoot the new slide, and new trigger upgrades. Plus the Henry lever gun in 17hmr needs fine tuned with the rifle sites.

    Well I made it out to go shoot today, the range was closed for some reason. It shot pretty well. Definately not 100% yet. It shot everything, just with the 200gr XTP I had to push the slide forward on I think 8 rounds out of 24. The slide seams to close slow. I currently have a 22# spring in there too. Not sure with the extra weight if I need to get some 24# springs to go in them. The 230gr Hardcast ran the best, little hotter. Only 1 round needed pushed on the back of the slide out of 14. I was not limp wristing. The gun ran fine in a fast double tap. Something about it just seems a bit slow on the closing of the slide.

    I came home and took it all apart. No major rub marks, inside the slide on the top where it drops over the bbl was lighty marked, but just like the factory slide. The rails were dirtly looking already, cleaned yesterday and oiled, cleaned again today. Black looking stuff with some metal flakes to itl looked like. So could be just part of the "break in", not sure. I cleaned it up and all and it feels smooth again. Best solution I believe would be try a 24# like mentioned. Recoil was not that bad at all, similar to standard slide with the 22# spring.

    Does that make sense? Will shoot again when I have time, might be a few weeks. Hopefully the range will be open next time.

    Give lone wolf a call and see what they say. Wouldn't be surprised if it was 'shoot it 250 rounds and then call us back'....

    I'm not sure just stepping up in spring weight is the cure-all we are looking for.

    They had a storm going on down there and the phones were out. I have 2 24# springs coming along with some other springs for the G29-30 models. Just in case. I cleaned it like mentioned, but not sure what oil stuff was on the slides when they came. I may not have done a good enough job on the rail section. I do beleive it will work it self out. Wasn't that much force needed to close. It ran pretty well overall. What gunk I cleaned out aftershooting might have been enough friction to slow the slide.

    I sure like the new sights though! At night they are bright enough as a night light almost walking through the house! Can't wait to go shoot again.

    You can't do this! Post gunporn and not tell us the make model and cost!?

    The 6" barrel on the 10mm is an idea way long overdue.

    Yeah, I'm such a tease.
    They are both custom built by me, Caspian frames and slides, Nowlin barrels. The 2 tone one is mine and the all black one is what BRWNBR carries. I think I've got about $1200 into each of them.

    Thanks! I'll have to see what my G20 long-slide tips the scales at...

    I'd bet its a fair bit lighter. All that stainless steel in mine adds up!

    Yes but BRWNBR's isn't nearly that pretty anymore.

    I imagine Kodiak year after year would wreak havoc on any carried sidearm...

    Tenmm, all those 10mm bullets add up in mine . Very, very nice! I'm a sucker for the two-tone 1911 but then again that stealthy long-nose looks great as well....

    I agree, the black stainless longslide with 200gr +P+ would be the ultimate. I need to sell some stuff.
