On hushing up the new Glock Gen 5 G19 and G17 (VIDEO)

The NFA Review Channel tries swapping out barrels on the new Gen 5 Glock 17 and 19 models to run them suppressed.

While (bad news) they found the Gen5 G17 will not function with the Gen3/4 threaded barrels on hand as the lugs are off, the Gen5 G19 ran very well with a CGS Group Kraken 9 and an aftermarket LWD barrel.

Chris Bartocci talks more about the Gen5 barrels below and the interchangeability issue if you are curious.
