which outer barrel is better for G17

I'm in the doubt of which O.B. is better for a metal (pot or aluminum slide), I do not remember if I read it or if I saw it in a video where it mentions that the O.B. made of steel can damage or "eat" the slide being softer metal, then should I buy an O.B. made of aluminum? Here I have some options, and I would like to know your opinion and some other detail as it is my first glock

The first it said "made of stainless steel, But in the A.P.S.web it said " metal aloy" https://www.shootercbgear.com/produc...6qptljlicds7i7

The second is CNC aluminum https://www.shootercbgear.com/produc...6qptljlicds7i7

This is steel from guarder (it catches my attention that on the left side it has that big hole ...) https://www.evike.com/products/30102/

The last one is form 5KU https://www.shootercbgear.com/produc...6qptljlicds7i7

A general rule with airsoft glocks is that u have to have same brand of slide and outerbarrel. If not theres a Good chance of fitment/cycling issues.

U dont write What brand glock or slide u have, But yes harder parts Will wear the softer parts, But if slide outer has a Good fit it should not be an issue.

Best regards

The slide is stock from B&W poseidon, it's a brand new glock type, and is TM compatible
There's no much of reviews of it 2 of 3 in english and the other in...i don't know what kind of language is xD, But it's not made by WE

Skirmshop sells a 3d printed outer barrel for TM glocks, has built in TDC mod, lets you adjust hopup without removing the slide. I'd look into that

Just realizes your gun is supposedly pre-upgraded by Poseidon...
Honestly in your place I would just use it as is, and only seek dor upgrades / spares when's (if ever) something breaks

What?? Are you telling me that the pre-upgraded poseidon inner barrel and bucking are equaly in results with ML crazy jet and all that's stuff?
Here, look at this vídeo https://youtu.be/CsM_qO0w4Ew

no, I'm not saying that. I'm exactly the opposite of a Poseidon fan. I hate them like no other brand, as all the "upgrades" I got from them resulted to be equal or even worse than the OEM brand.

- got the Ice Breaker piston head, it didn't seal at all.
- got the Ice Pick floating valve, caused the gun to dry fire every other shot.
- got the Turbo Valve Polar Jet Stream, only caused the valve locker to fail to engage, in turn providing pitiful recoil and constant missfeeds.

I've read good things about their inner barrels and buckings, but I'd never buy them, considering my awful experience with the brand.


Anyway, what I'm suggesting, since you have a pre-upgraded gun that has almost zero reviews, the best thing to do would be to use it and abuse it, and provide a the community with a initial and a long-term review.

We don't even know if the outer barrels or the hop ups meant for WE guns will work, as the video you linked shows there's quite some differences: in some things it looks more like WE's (flat nozzle input), while others looks like Marui / Army Armament (shaped hammer roller), and the hop and barrel doesn't look like anything I've seen before.

Dimitri you'r right! I will make a review of this glock, But i need to have on my hands the ML combo for test and compare to the stock/upgraded poseidon stuff

It was like a "fiiiuuuff!!" when you said that both were not the same thing! Cuz it cost me like 78 USD
