Convert your Glock 22 to an extended-barrel racegun with our Glock sight block.Â
Designed to run with the Lone Wolf threaded barrel for the Glock 35, the sight block instantly gives your standard Glock 22 the sight radius of the famed 6" Glock 24!
(NOTE: KKM Glock 35 barrels also work well, but be sure to ask for 9/16 X 24 threads.)
This is NOT a recoil compensator. Although the slide assembly is as long as a 6" Glock 24, it weighs considerably less -- approximating the 5" Glock 35. That gives you the faster "feel" of the G35, but with a low-motion front sight unlike any other Glock.
Your front sight mounts directly to the barrel instead of the slide, so it moves only a fraction of an inch in recoil. That makes the front sight easier to track, and since the front sight isn't slapping all the way back and forth, Â sights experience less pounding, leading to longer fiber-optic life.
You'll want some thread-locking compound for the front sight screw (don't use crimped sights, they will damage the aluminum sight block). You'll want a little more for the set screw, and a little for the barrel threads themselves. We suggest the "adjustable" sort, since you will want to take the sight block off eventually to service the front sight. Short of that, we suggest leaving the sight block on semi-permanently.
How Do I Clean It? Sliding the barrel forward exposes the chamber area for easy back-to-front cleaning.
Does It Work With A Gen 4?You'll need to change out your current recoil spring system to a Gen-3 style guide rod and spring. This is both easy, and inexpensive. People do this all the time in order to be able to use different recoil spring weights. (Not possible on the Gen 4's telescopic system.) Last I looked Carver Custom and Jaeger Products both offer a bushing to convert Gen 4's to the Gen 3 style.
