I was thinking of getting a extended barrel or stock G23 barrel for the G27. I also saw extended 23 barrels around 4.5 inches such as EFK etc. I though about using this for winter carry to get the power of a G23 or with the extended G23 barrel the power of G22 out of the more compact in other dimensions G27 that I already have. If It felt to bulky I could use the stock barrel or other guns I have that are more compact. Since the after market barrels are match grade would it affect reliability significantly? Is there any chance the barrel would be damaged from lack of support? From searching I seen the G23 or 4" barrel in a G27 but not the extended G23 4.5" barrel. I know that G22 has a different barrel and won't work. I don't plan on getting it compensated since its for carry.
