Hey everyone. Welcome back to The R.A.N.G.E. Looking to fancy up your Generation 3 or Generation 4 Glock 19? Well step inside, walk this way; let’s take a look at Backup Tactical’s threaded barrel for our Glock 19.

I’ve had Backup Tactical’s threaded barrel on my Glock 19 MOS Gen 4 pretty much since I bought the gun. Let’s do a rundown on the barrel specs.

  • Overall barrel length is four and a half inches
  • 416 stainless steel construction
  • Pulled-broach SAAMI spec rifling
  • One in sixteen twists; the factory is 1 in 10
  • 1/2 inch by 28 threads
  • 4 finish offerings: stainless steel, black, olive drab, and flat dark earth, all on PVD

Did I mention this is made in the USA? And drop-in and pew fit. Street price on these is right around $200.

As far as chamber support goes, we have good, full-chamber support on the barrel to handle those +P+Loads. The Backup Tactical threaded barrel is on my left here, and the factory is on the right – and we just have some of the standard snap caps from A-zoom in there.

Now to the down-and-dirty.

I’ve tested just about all my subsonic ammunition to this barrel, from 124-grain subsonic to the 165-grain Freedom Munitions HUSH. Rounds all hit the target head-on and no keyholing; that’s a very good thing. I ran HST, Ranger-T, Gold Dots, and even some of the Hirtenberger L7A1 through the barrel and not a single hiccup.

I do not have a dedicated 9-millimeter suppressor so I use my Osprey 45. I do have cycling issues with subsonics unless I run the IMI 158-grain loads which are a little on the warm side for subsonic. They’re right around 1000 to 1025 feet per second for 158-grain. This is more or less to blame on the recoil spring assembly in the Gen 4s over anything, from what I’ve read. No random accuracy or feeding issues when I wasn’t running it suppressed. We’ve also seen velocities in this 4 1/2 inch barrel that meet or exceed the 5.1-inch barrel in the M9 A3. I do like the thick barrel profiles in the Glocks which allow me to use a standard half-inch piston that indexes off the barrel shoulder and not off the muzzles.

Why Backup Tactical?

With as many aftermarket Glock barrels, I’m sure someone down in the comments may ask, “But why buy the Backup Tactical? It’s all about personal choice my friend. Maybe you like the four-color offerings? Maybe you want a middle-of-the-road-priced barrel that doesn’t have dimples or flutes or super-exotic colors? Maybe you even like their wide array of threaded protectors that they offer in various colors, shapes, and sizes? Maybe you want a 4 1/2 inch barrel with half-inch threads over one that’s 4.7 or in metric M13?

To quote the King, “Have it your way.”

It’s hard to really pick apart the barrel. It’s made in the USA, drop-in fit, and very competitively priced. If I had to complain about one thing I wish it would caliber-mark the barrel somewhere like on the hood like they do in the factory. When you get a lot of accessories on the table at the range, sometimes picking up a barrel and seeing the caliber mark erases any doubt that you’ve grabbed what you’ve needed. I see in addition to the threaded Glock 19 barrels they offered non-threaded versions as well as now offering Glock 17 threaded models.

I’d like to thank Backup Tactical for the opportunity to test their barrels and to you all for watching.

At this current time, I’m unsure what the content restrictions with YouTube will play out like. I like uploading here so I’ll try my hardest to comply with their rules even though I think they’re stupid, but it is their sandbox. I’ve reserved my channel name on full30 so when they allow more content creators to upload there I will try my hardest to get on there. I do have a Patreon account set up I’ll put the link in the description below for anybody willing to help out a little extra there. As always, I appreciate any of my contacts, supporters, and vendors. Until next time, catch you at the R.A.N.G.E.

Behind every great silencer is a great barrel – literally. If you shoot suppressed, consider what life would be like with shoddy threads that leave your $600+ and year-long-wait hearing protection device hanging at a non-concentric angle to your boreline. Cringeworthy. Ok, perhaps I’m being slightly melodramatic. Even so, the importance of a quality threaded barrel simply cannot be over looked. Adding to the of the lineup of currently available options, the team at Backup Tactical recently introduced a series of threaded barrels for Glock pistols. And I was lucky enough to give them a shot (I’ll be here all week).

INTRODUCTION:

Allow me to deviate for a moment. Writing reviews is hard. No, I’m not talking about the type of ‘hard’ that means only the ‘select elite’ are capable of evaluating a gun product and slinging words onto a page. I’m talking about trying to accurately describe the positives and negatives of a particular item that is designed, by default, to just plain work. Forget style, that’s a subjective characteristic that will never get a full consensus.

For example, if I am buying new tires, all of my questions will revolve around one major topic ‘will this rubber keep my car on the road in XYZ conditions. Sure we can discuss tread pattern, ride comfort and sidewall durability, but in the end, the majority of drivers expect their tires to just work. (White letters out, by the way. Always.)

Now back to reviewing guns and accessories.

Sure, we all have our tastes and styles, but in the end, all we ask out of our products is that they work as advertised. And for single-piece items like barrels, for example, the review is seemingly straight forward – do they perform as a threaded barrel should in the host gun for which they were designed? Yes? End of story. Which admittedly makes for a short narrative.

For those of you who don’t like to read or find my review style annoying, I’ll save you the time. The barrels from Backup Tactical are very well made, perform flawlessly and function perfectly in both third and fourth generation Glock 19 pistols. (Glock 17s are on the way).

For the rest of you, I’ll take you through the details.

Gun owners seeking the sound of silence continue to wait for the fat lady to sing about the Hearing Protection Act. While ATF wait times are coming down, suppressor buyers still have to jump through the National Firearms Act’s paperwork, tax and temporal hoops. But that hasn’t stopped them from buying threaded pistol barrels ahead of the Act’s possible passage.

On some firearms (e.g., the FN FNX-45 Tactical), a suppressor-ready threaded barrel comes straight from the factory. For others, it’s aftermarket only.

Backup Tactical — esteemed makers of bling and badass thread protectors

— is now targeting The Friend of Gaston with a colorful series of threaded barrels for the GLOCK 19. They’re starting with standard black, shiny silver and a “flat dark earth” that looks fairly close to gold.

Back-up Tactical manufactures the barrels entirely in-house from solid stress-relieved 416 stainless steel rods.

Threaded barrels. They just make every gun a little bit cooler, don’t they? Slap a threaded barrel on even the common GLOCK 19 and it instantly stands out on the range. Not to mention all the options it opens up for muzzle devices. But what if you have a threaded barrel and aren’t using a muzzle device at the moment? Enter Backup Tactical’s line of spiffy looking thread protectors.

Threaded barrels are cool, but if you aren’t careful, things can go sideways quickly.

You could accidentally drop your threaded gun and bend one of the threads out of alignment, rendering the threads instantly useless. Or if they become clogged after thousands of rounds it could take some a chunk of time and elbow grease to clean the gunk out and make it serviceable again.

To keep the threads in good working order, prudent owners slot a thread protector onto their barrel when not in use. Most threaded barrels don’t come with a thread protector out of the box so you’ll need to find one on your own. Most companies out there make boring standard thread protectors, nothing more than black metal tubes. But for those looking for something a little more stylish, Backup Tactical may have just the ticket.

Materials Used in the Thread-Protectors

Backup Tactical machines their thread protectors out of aluminum, a material soft enough to not gouge or scratch your threads but tough enough to stand up to the typical wear and tear you would expect on the barrel of a gun. Not only are they functional, but the biggest selling point for Backup Tactical’s product is that they add a little extra flair to your already pimped out gun. Whether you want a laser-etched Spartan, a utilitarian cross-hatch, or even a hot pink camo pattern it’s all possible.

Backup Tactical’s protectors are available in the following pitches:

  • 1/2×28
  • 13.5×1 LH
  • .578×28
  • 16×1 LH
  • 5/8×24

Out on the range, the thread protectors work as advertised. They slot on easily and, just as important, stay put. And they don’t scratch easily.

What more do you need? Not every design is my cup of tea, but…horses for courses. There are a few Backup Tactical looks that I’d totally pay $30 for. If there’s one that would look good on your gat, go for it.

Specifications: Backup Tactical Thread Protector

  • MSRP: $29.99
  • Overall: ****

I’ve seen thread protectors for less, but not much less. The style is where Backup Tactical’s protectors really stand out.

I am a geek in many ways: one of which involves camo patterns. Camo holsters, camo clothes and even camo phone cases. I make no apologies for my love of earthy patterns. So when I saw the Kryptek camo thread protector from Backup Tactical, something stirred inside me. Usually thread protectors are lackluster pieces of knurled metal. Not here.

Now, if you are expecting pages upon pages of in-depth review, I’m going to go ahead and stop you right there.

It’s a thread protector for crying out loud.

But they are definitely unique enough to get some air time.

Two things: First, I’m not a “bling” kind of guy, and some versions of the Reliable Thread Protector border on “gun bling”. But I also recognize that I am the last person anyone should take style advice from. Second, the guns I have threaded all have dedicated suppressors, so the situations where I would need a thread protector might be less than other shooters.

But the team at Backup Tactical have put together a well made, good looking and affordable thread protector.

But the team at Backup Tactical has put together a well made, good looking and affordable thread protector. And as suppressor ownership increases at a record pace, thankfully there is going to be a lot more threads to protect. We might as well have some style choices.

What’s available right now.

Currently, only the 1/2×28 thread pattern is available, but the company has plans to release protectors in other popular thread pitches very soon. Besides the Kryptek pattern, my other favorite was the red, white and blue ‘stars and bars’ version.

Owner/operator Jason Bayne created custom thread protectors just for himself for years. But when shooters at his range asked him “Where did you get those?”, Bayne decided to take his idea to the commercial market. And Backup Tactical has thread protectors to fit almost any style.

Last thing I almost forgot about their thread-protectors…

I almost forgot. As thread protectors they work as advertised. They spin on easily with no wobble and they mount up flush to the shoulder.

Honestly, with all the custom Glock builds and refinishing options available these days, I can see the Reliable Thread Protector selling well. Check them out. Click here to read the full article.
