I'm not sure what the FPS is on the glock series, but would a tightbore barrel in a 23f raise the FPS over 330?

thanks.

FYI:

My stock M19 fires between 320-330 chronoed.  I'm guessing that a TBB might have some effect but is more apt to make the gun slightly more consistent. The barrel is very short and I'm not sure you can expect a whole lot of difference vs. the stock barrel. An high flow valve would increase the amount of gas per shot which should increase fps.  However, it is my understanding that an high flow value would require a trigger spring upgrade in order to properly activate the valve.  Also, higher FPS from increased gas flow=fewer shots per gas fill.

Hope this helps.

Just changing to a harder trigger spring will increase FPS.  No need to install high flow valve.
