What would be the advantages/disadvantages to a glock 24 pdw setup? 9mm, 40sw, or 357?

9mm, you have stock 33 round mags; however, you have a conversion barrel that could cause reliability issues. Would need to change ejector and extractor as well.

40sw, I don't really care for this round, but the gun was designed for this round which would increase reliability. Limited to factory 22 round mags.

357 sig, expensive round to shoot. Better long range ballistics. Would have to use a conversion barrel which may effect reliability. Limited to 22 round mags.

Any other thoughts?

If you must have a 24 sized pistol in 9mm there is the 17L.

Yes, the 17l is out there and is a great option. I already have a 24 though. Could sell it and buy a 17l (if I can find one).

Some points

1. I like the 24...I actually carried one on duty for a while. Nice gun.

2. If you have a real 24 that is one thing. If the talk will eventually turn to a Lone Wolf Abortion slide...please tell me so i can kill this ill fated thread now.

3. Conversion barrels are a waste of money.

4. If you are going to do a 24...you may as well go 357 sig with it.

The 24 is a nice gun. I am leaning towards a 357 sig barrel.

Excellent!

Gabe, having used both, how would you compare the 24 to the 35?

35 is a better pistol IMHO

Is there a LONG slide in 357SIG? Im not a particular fan of 40SW, either; but I recognize that popularity is an advantage all its own, conversely I VERY much do like 357SIG and added barrel length with that round translates to added down range performance. Decide what you want from the gun, IF its long range then the 357SIG option seems the way to go. I like having the option to add a 9mm barrel; but I hardly ever find myself swapping back and forth once Ive made the "choice".

Zero reliability issues with a 357 sig barrel. Magazines, extractors and ejectors are all the same between 357 and 40. The only difference is the barrel. You can always use 40 as a training round and reserve 357 for social functions.

Have to agree on this too. The 24/17L are very cool, but they seem to be too nose heavy VS. the 35 size pistol. If I am going to use a longer pistol, I want a proper comp that will take advantage of the gas pressure from the .357 round.

That's close, but honestly I want a comp that matches the contour of the slide and has a tuned expansion chamber. Because the aesthetics make it work better! :laughing:

Seriously Brent Ive been coveting your set up and kicking myself for not going with the longer threaded barrel when I set up my G35/357

My set up is not pretty, but it works really really well.

Actually I kind of like the cobbled together, Star Wars look. :pistol:

Nah, it's way cool. It's just that every since I saw the pistol Kompressor prototype I have wanted something along those lines for my converted 35.

Whoops, hadn't yet seen the SI PDW was in sales area.

I've made several like that too. Holsters can be an issue though; Brent asked for a brake to fit a holster that's not completely open on the bottom.

Generally the single chamber/port style you pictured is a little louder to the shooter than what Brent has with a large internal chamber and lots of small holes. Either way the 357 is pretty loud though.

Ya know the Glock 40 (10mm) is the same size as the 17L/24.......I could see a PWD called "Problem Solver" :lmao:

I resisted the urge to mill my G35 and use a 357 sig barrel.........my G24 I traded for is just sitting in the same since I decided to not set it up for USPSA.....hrmmmm.

Hmmmm POI; the weight of the G40 slide vs. G24, sans the barrels.

When I found mine it had a KKM threaded .40, with KKM comp on it, plus a .400 CorBon barrel. Build it, use it, abuse it.
