I just installed the Roland Special Barrel on one of my G19s, I'm looking forward to blsting it. Up to this point they've all been OEM
whats the deal with the roland special, just the muzzle break i take it?
kinda funny i just noticed they semi ripped of his name but its obviously knacking off his product just spelled different. https://www.460rowland.com/
i thought there was a "w" in there..
i figured you were talking proverbially.

i kinda have one of these as well although NOT through KKM (i wish!) ive been interested in the .460 Rowland for a while. from what i hear its basically just a .45 only short chambered so a reg. .45 wont close on it. (or maybe it was long chambered since short wouldn't make any sense) but anyway, the point was a regular old 45 acp can be made to be that powerful IF you have the right brass for it and a strong enough comp. and RSA.
i may not be able to get up to rowland specs etc but we will see. Going to take it slow.
I got a 1000 hornady HAP bullets for it pretty much for free.
Just got the dies. (Finally)
The barrel eas dirt cheap but a $80 brake and to pay fir threading and nitriding options it did get up there kinda fast but ALL in its still south of $300.
The .40 soup barrel was $80 i prefer Dasan by far over lone wolf. Lol.

What famous Glock bulge?! I have a G40 MOS, should I be worried?
shooting hot 10mm out of a looser factory chamber can. also depends on the brass. it can be removed with a lee carbide factory SEATING die and you just push the entire round stright through the die when the seating stem is removed.
tighter chambers particularly the ramp that is fully supported and not as deep. is less prone to bulging.

glock chambers are notoriously loose.

The problem with owning a Glock is that you can end up with this and that and easily spend twice the cost of the gun in parts - no thanks. I left mine stock. Finally can shoot the G17 well, next, try to shoot the G40 well. If I have to add stuff to my gun to shoot better, then I list it for sale.
except sometimes they are built from the ground up. not saying thats the case here. just saying..
i would prefer to build them as the p80 frames i feel are ten times better. better in almost every way. no pig nose, more rails (an actual rail not that pos glock proprietary thing)
theres a reason why the glock parts maret exploded and it wasnt due to glock themselves. they snoozed BIG TIME!

And yes i realize its stupid long. I was going for that dirty hairy look in my glock, also potentially for hunting. And trying to get the most velocity. Also was thinking about getting one of them nifty glock stocks and getting into SBR. *Highly* doubt that will happen now.
But i was kinda thinking PCC :) a superior PCC if you ask me!

Although... It IS a PITA to holster lol. (Yeah that aint happening)

Waiting to put in my order for a KKM sounds like my buddy wants to go for a kind of g17 but "roland special" hybrid. I think the gen5 brake they have will fit his voodoo gen3 slide.
Looking into sending the slide in to have them fit it and check.

Anyway. I Was kinda curious though i came across a Ed Brown drop in or semi drop in barrel for kind of cheap. Its pre threaded like he wanted.

I was curious if anyone has any experience with Ed Brown barrels. Ive heard the name before but have ZERO experience or second hand knowledge of them.
Any good?
One thing im a little leary of is he mostly does 1911 stuff correct?
Never seen him in the Gucci glock game.

My Springfield 1911 Loaded now has all Ed Brown internals. Only thing original is the frame with beavertail safety, plunger tube, and ejector; slide with sights; barrel with barrel link, pin, and barrel bushing. I consider Ed Brown 1911 parts to be second to none for quality. No idea on the Glock stuff but I can't imagine him making anything but high quality items.

Thanks for info.
How is it accuracy wise?

It sure looks like one of the nicest glock barrels out there. Im not a fan of the typical heavy fluting and all that "bling" on glock stuff.
Its one of the most sexy glock barrels ive ever seen.
I wish i had the spare folding $ to snatch it up myself. Im kinda dying to know now.
