Most useless $ ever spent for a accessory

I got lucky and found this recently...
Guy swears it's a regular 9mm Luger barrel...lol...
I guess it's fun to look at....
I contacted Geco but haven't heard back

Isn't that a training barrel that uses special ammo?

Yep, I saw one of those on GunBroker a few months ago. Thought about buying it, then I began to wonder what I'd do with it....(I'm not a collector).

Yes it is indeed a training barrel...
The guy was clueless ...he tried to convince me it shoots 9mm Luger...
Barrel says 8.2mm on it...actually 8.2mm-9T which I assume stands for 9-Taining

The official description is 8.2mm Geco...
Wish me luck in sourcing just a few boxes of ammo some place

Hey Pilotsteve , could this barrel be rebored and rifled in 9mm he would then have a Lang barrel . That could be a MGMike question . Ayb

These training barrels have no "dropping block", also an undercut around the chamber area. These are ~1" shorter then the 6" Lang barrel too.


I wouldn't attempt to modify it for 9mm.


I considered purchasing one last summer, passed on it, no training ammo available.


I snatched the 30 Para barrel I saw on GB though!

The barrel could not be rebored to 9mm due to the floating chamber it has...
to my surprise the barrel is actually rifled (I expected it to be smooth)
also note that in the above posted link by Kar98; that barrel has important parts missing. The rod and spring pushing the floating chamber back are missing and the spring that prevents the floating chamber form rotating is missing..
Lucky guy however... he has ammo for the gun... and no I don't really want to shoot it but it be nice to have to have a few rounds

I knew when I purchased the barrel that finding ammo would be near impossible; however, for those on the board that known me for a while know I love the hunt for stuff like that....
I am still amazed that the seller was trying to tell me to shoot 9mm out of it... I am not sure if he was worried I wouldn't by the barrel if he told me otherwise... and I didn't ask him till auction was closed in fear he may jack the price if I told him it was a rare barrel that doesn't shoot 9mm

Hi uncut,

Congrats with your finding.

Just one remark...the P5 training barrel on my website does not miss any parts..its a different (later) variation. My barrel functions on the standard springs that are present in any P5. It is adviced to remove one of the two springs to achieve proper recoil.

regards,
Dennis
