BLACKLIST Glock Ultra Match Barrel Review
I spent a lot of time looking at match barrels for my G19. All the usual suspects received a lot of consideration, Agency, Zev and S3F etc.
While there is nothing really wrong with the factory Glock barrel, I still thought there might be a little room for improvement on my groupings. That actually comes from two different “parts” and then a whole bunch of messing around with grip and stance mechanics.
The two parts are the barrel and replacing the gawd-awful factory sights. I replaced the sights with Ameriglo IDot Pro night sights, which is reviewed here, and the barrel with the BLACKLIST Drop In Ultra Match Threaded Barrel in titanium nitride. Gold baby, gold.
The Blacklist barrel is a pretty darn impressive piece of gear. They are machined from a certified 416R stainless steel bar and are insanely strong. This is a true drop-in barrel. No modifications of any kind are required. Just replace and go.
The barrels are recess crowned for incredible accuracy and fluted. Blacklist ships the threaded model with a very nice thread protector which matches the coating you choose and includes several additional rubber gaskets in case you where yours out when screwing on a suppressor.
Any ammunition, including +P is eaten up and spit out easily. The match chamber prevents any unwanted back pressure that could ruin your factory barrel.

The packaging is great as well. It comes shipped from either Blacklist directly or a distributor in a plastic clamshell box with a foam insert. You’ll also receive a nice PVC BLACKLIST hook and loop patch.
The titanium nitride coating cleans up easily and really holds the stainless steel. After several hundred rounds, there is barely any marring on the barrel and even the rifling still looks great. It really holds up to wear.
Probably the best thing about the BLACKLIST is that they aren’t trying to rip anyone off. You can find them on sale at several online sellers from $184.99. Regular retail price is $219. I don’t know how long they will remain on sale, but I’d jump on one if you are looking to upgrade the performance of your Glock.
They offer barrels for Glock and Smith & Wesson M&P. Visit their site to see if they have one that matches your needs. You can choose threaded or plain, different finishes and the thread pitch, depending on your needs.
I decided to make one small change to mine. I added a Voodoo thread protector to give me the look I was after. However the thread protector that is shipped with the barrel is very clean in design and function as well.
If you are looking to upgrade your accuracy and look good doing it, the BLACKLIST Ultra Match is something you really need to look at closely. You’d be hard pressed to find a better value anywhere.
