May Update

Things are busier than ever here at KKM. We are doing everything we can to get our orders filled and shipped to you. We are frequently asked if we can make a (insert gun model here) barrel. The short answer is, probably not. If it’s not listed on our website or a derivative of something we make already we most likely can’t do it. You are more than welcome to ask but we prefer you send us an email asking about a particular barrel. We did want to inform you what we have coming up next. Sig Sauer P320 barrels are the next new product that will be coming out. We are hoping to have those in full production by fall. We will offer multiple sizes as well as threaded and non threaded versions. Keep checking the blog for more updates on when these might be released. Also if you want us to make a particular barrel vote in our poll which you can reach from the top menu bar.

Glock Compensator Information

So you’ve finally got your KKM Precision Glock barrel and comp comb, now what? Well for starters run good, high quality ammo through it. Lower quality ammo is also less powerful. This can cause issues with function as there is not enough energy to cycle the action and thus malfunctions happen. This problem is exacerbated the longer and heavier the setup is. For example: A stock Glock 26 with compensator will most likely function with any ammo. A stock Glock 34 with compensator might malfunction often with less powerful ammo. There are two options to fix this problem and one solution is a much better choice: shoot better ammo! We understand that this isn’t always possible when budgets and dreams don’t coincide. The second option to fix the cycling issue is to lower your recoil spring weight. Glock sends a 17 lb spring in it’s current guns. Spring weights are available from 10 to 20 lbs. Lowering your spring weight will increase reliability with lower power ammunition but it will also increase felt recoil because there is less resistance on the slide while it moves rearward.

This is a determination that you have to make and we can’t tell you which is best in your situation.
