    Story now is that it was a limited run for European customers only, no current plans to introduce them here.

    If you want one (or more), call and let Glock U.S. know!

    I shot a friends G-23 sporting a compensated barrel and was very impressed. It indeed made a difference with practically no muzzle rise and recoil was on par with a 9mm in a 40. Softest 40 I've ever shot and being a compact model. I don't know why they discontinued them as an option here in the US? I really liked that G-23.

    The ported "C" models are rare enough that most folks never get a chance to shoot one, even though most folks that DO shoot them, really like them. Because most folks have never shot one, they are slow-movers off the retail shelves, so stores don't stock them regularly, which means... (return to top of paragraph).

    "C" models are not considered suitable for certain uses, but when you factor-in the fact that you can drop-in a non-ported barrel and get all the benefits and versatility of BOTH a ported and non-ported Glock, I'm surprised that more folks DON'T buy one. I think if Glock offered a two-barrel (ported and non-ported) option for $50-$75 more than the base ported model, they'd fly off the shelves.

    I've always shied away from the ported Glocks just bc I dont like the way they look, but I read an account from a guy who owns nothing but ported Glocks, and he dispels all the "myths", if you will, about why you should not use ported barrel Glocks. It was a good read.
