    I tried to look, but didn't see anything.

    The cat is probably dead, but WHY?

    I am unsure what a ten-inch barrel would accomplish. Yes, it would impart extra velocity to the bullet, but because the slide length remains the same, your sight radius is unchanged. The extra weight of the barrel all up front may also cause functioning problems, since it has to cam up and down when the pistol cycles.

    It'll be a short-barreled-rifle and subject to NFA tax and restrictions if you're in the US.
    edit: Saw you were in Norway, never mind.

    Otherwise I'd make a phone call to an after market company and see what size their blanks start at. If all else fails you could buy a 17L barrel (6 inches).

    I don't know why anyone would want one.

    There are longer Glock 17 barrels that are threaded made by companies like Storm Lake of Lone Wolf.

    A longer barrel keeps the slide locked up longer on Browning type actions. When I put a seven inch barrel on my 1911, I had to use an 8 pound spring to get it to cycle. Silencers used on Browning type actions frequently use a recoil booster to ensure reliable operation. I think the combination of a ten inch barrel and silencer on the end will be too much to semi-auto operation on a Glock. When I put a form 1 silencer on my Browning HP, I have to use an 8 pound spring cut down an inch to get it to cylce.

    When i get around to putting on a silencer it will be on a standard lenght threaded barrel.The 10" barrel was just a thought to get a bit more velocity and reach from what would in essence be a short barreld rifle.
