Looks like our old April Fools’ joke is now a reality.

Lone Wolf Distributors, one of the biggest names in aftermarket Glock parts, released a 9X18 Makarov conversion barrel for the Glock 42. The barrel is a drop in replacement for the stock barrel and it will allow buyers to shoot a large variety of surplus ComBloc ammo. The 9X18 Makarov packs a bigger punch than most .380 ACP rounds so this could also be better suited for a concealed carry gun. Additionally, you will be able to spend less on your range trips due to the lower cost of surplus 9X18 Makarov.

Here are the specs from the manufacturer:

  • Fits all Glock generations
  • Designed for lead, plated, or jacketed ammunition
  • Certified, stress relieved 416 stainless steel
  • Button rifled, three stage honed bore
  • Industry recognized SBN premium coating (SBN is Salt Bath Nitride, similar to Tennifer)
  • Heat treated to RC 40-42, then SBN coating increases surface hardness to RC 60
  • Exacting tolerances allow for drop in installation
  • Fluting creates path for heat and debris to escape

    For those guys that keep asking for a 7.62×25 barrel the only Glocks that can accommodate a cartridge that long are the 10mm guns. Only the G42 has a magazine that will feed 9×18 Makarov

    Hmmm…almost enough to make me consider that butt ugly pistol.
