The Best Fluted Glock-Barrels
Barrels are one of the most important components reserved for the well-known Glock handgun. The barrel is a crucial part of the weapon system as it directs the live round to hit the target based on some important factors at play. The average barrel in the new generation of Glocks has greatly improved over the last few years, in which Glock now offers their own GMB (Glock Marksman) barrels, already included in many Gen 5 iterations.
The greatest testing is unquestionably conducted by engineers at major firearm manufacturers under lock and key, not on some haphazard internet blog or general YouTube video produced by a hobbyist. First off, a lot of these OEM producers will construct barrels to various specifications instructed by the companies they are selling to. This could be as straightforward as a different color barrel or as complex as the chamber dimensions. Second, before the product is sold, some final fitting, machining, and coating may vary with manufacturers. This may or may not have an impact on accuracy once the barrel is seated in a slide ready to be test fired. Repeatable accuracy is impacted by an almost infinite number of variables.
A fluted barrel is one of the most unique options available to anyone thinking about buying a rifle or a pistol that they can customize themselves. It stands out aesthetically from the ordinary due to the fluting. Some fluted barrels have shallow, slender flutes that are more decorative than functional. Others are as deep as the thickness of the barrel wall will allow. Speaking of aesthetics, some gun and barrel manufacturers darken their fluted stainless steel barrels before giving them a final exterior polish. This keeps the flutes black and creates a striking contrast with the barrel's outside, silvery surface. The practice has since been followed by a few other gun manufacturers, but Weatherby was the first to implement it.
Fluted match-grade Glock barrels are the cornerstone of a customized Glock. The fluted Glock barrel has custom machine work done to the barrel to improve not only its aesthetics but its functionality as well, by offering higher accuracy. The fluted barrel has curves on the sides of the barrel that enable it to have rifling and further machining work done to the inside of the barrel, which is visually appealing with swirls within the barrel itself. This enables the trajectory of the bullet or round to be extremely accurate. The top barrels in the industry are made of 416R stainless steel and 4150 CMV. The outside additional machining makes it lighter as it sheds material from the original match-grade barrel that existed before it was fluted. The fluted barrel is lighter and more accurate for the 9mm-chambered Glock handgun models than the average marksman type of barrel available on the market.
