Understanding Agency Arms Barrels
Made from 416R stainless steel, each of the Agency Arms barrels are manufactured with a 1:10 twist. They use pulled broach Saami spec 9mm rifling to achieve some of the best accuracy available today. The crown of the barrel is beveled and polished and the feed ramp is also polished to provide the best performance. For some extra heat dissipation and therefore greater accuracy over time, Agency Arms also decided to use octagonal fluting on their barrels. Finally, there are three different finishes available to choose from and though they all offer superior corrosion resistance, you may want to consider the one that looks best to you. Choices include: stainless steel, black nitride, and TiN (gold).
Which Models Do They Make?
While Agency Arms does work with virtually every Glock model out there, they are somewhat limited in which they produce barrels for. In fact, they presently only offer these barrel upgrades for the Glock 17 or the Glock 19 model handguns. This means if you have anything other than the popular full-size or compact 9mm models, you’ll have to stick to the factory option for now. Of course, there are plenty of other parts from Agency Arms that you might be interested in working with.
