Swenson Barrel-Midway USA

Post by ferd47 » Wed Mar 04, 2020 5:57 pm

I purchased a Swenson Threaded barrel from MidwayUSA for my Glock 19 in anticipation of using a suppressor. I used the barrel for a time without a suppressor. When I finally attempted to use a suppressor after the long wait for the paperwork to clear, it would not thread on. The barrel had a straight 1.25”split from the muzzle back. It is perfectly in line with the bore.
It turns out that Swenson is a proprietary brand of MidwayUSA as is Stoner. Buried in the fine print of the MIdwayUSA, they say they will only back their proprietary brands for 1 year. When I contacted them, they would do nothing to back this clearly defective product. Buyer beware of MidwayUSA and their private brands.

Have a buddy order one in his name.

Swap barrels with him and have him return the split barrel for a refund.

Buy him a drink.
8 stamps and counting. :mrgreen:
