Glock Instructor Barrel
We had a need for a safety/training barrel for classroom use but designed in such a way that no live rounds could be introduced into the weapon. You can teach fundamentals with a blue or inert gun, but you can't properly teach trigger control, or retention or slide lock reloads with a blue gun. We couldn't find the desired product anywhere so we decided to just build it.
Muzzle end is drilled for use with retention holsters or other holsters that have a muzzle plug that goes in the end of the barrel. The barrel has a small amount of extra length on the end by design. This allows everyone seeing the gun from the side to know that the inert barrel is in the gun and therefore safe. If the extra length isn't desired it can be cut off with a saw or cutoff wheel. The feed ramp and chamber area of the barrel is solid. We thought about cutting a chamber hole there for dummy rounds, but decided this could possibly allow live ammunition to be inserted by mistake, so we left that area solid for safety reasons.
These barrels are printed with ABS polymer and fit Gen 3/4 or Gen 5 Glock models 19/23, 17/22/31, 43/43X, and 34/35. Available in bright safety orange or yellow.
The Gen 3/4 and Gen 5 Glock 17/22/31/34/35 barrels are not interchangeable due to the different recoil lug dimensions on the Gen 5 barrel compared to earlier generations. The Glock 19 barrel works on generations 3, 4, and 5.
Barrel extends past the muzzle just enough that the end is highly visible.
We've had some questions as to what the difference was between the instructor barrel and the training barrel. They are exactly the same product. LE/Mil/CCW firearms instructors recognize the instructor barrel term, and old school competitive shooters are more familiar with the term dry fire or training barrel. We provide a duplicate product with the two names for customer search/search engine purposes.
Great as a dry fire barrel or for instructor use when teaching fundamentals to new shooters in a classroom environment.
We now offer a complete instructor safety kit which includes the barrel, Vickers orange base plates, and 4 orange dummy rounds. See the You Might Also Like link below for that offering.
Note: there is a rough spot on the left side of the barrel. This does not affect function and is unseen when the barrel is installed in the gun. It's simply a byproduct from where the barrel rests on the printer bed during printing.
