If I may... when converting the G23 to shoot 9mm Glock told me the safest way is to buy a glock 19. SECONDLY: if you wish to deal with just one receiver the best thing to do is buy a G19 upper. Then all you need to is take down the slide upper, slide on the G19 upper, change the mags and you are up and running in just a few seconds without going third party anything... NOW having said that if you notice on the trigger housing, the extractor is straight on the 9mm and has a little curve on the .40 (I don't like the .40 caliber by the way). This bend on the extractor will send the spent cartridges in a different directions. A purist told me that if you switch uppers you also need to swap out the trigger housing assembly to match the caliber. This takes a little longer as you can tell but certainly do-able. My question is why have a .40 at all? I know some say it is a more potent caliber and has a greater coefficient of energy dump. What they miss however is that it is not the caliber but the bullet sitting on top of the cartridge. Bullet technology has been improving a lot and there are manufacturers that have increased the lethality of the 9mm to surpass that of the .45. How? Check out LEHIGH DEFENSE. These are solid copper bullets CNC machined to be quite nasty. I am waiting for Socialist-Fascists to sound the call to ban them. There is another cartridge technology which also has solid copper tips but each bullet divides into three parts tethered and makes a heck of a mess as it impacts the target in three connected impact points.

(1) what would you ecpect Glock to say? (2) The ejector, not the extractor, is on the trigger housing. (3) I doubt that the lwd feedramp is offset, but I'd want to see one to be sure. (4) Its safe to use a .40 ejector with9mm. Not so for using 9mm ejector for .40.

I have been assured by a glock armorer. The feed ramp has been extended to compensate for the extractor and hundreds of rounds fired and no fte stove pipe and no malfunctions whatsoever .
I really value any and all answers ,there is no such thing as to safe when dealing with firearms!!
Thank you very much Walter for your expert analysis and opinion!

Wha

What extractor to convert my Glock 23 to 9mm. I am using the Lone Wolf barrel.
Hi Bill,

It’s an old thread - conversion barrels have continued to improve since then. For a long time conversion barrels weren’t consistent so the results would vary from gun to gun. The general approach was to drop in the conversation barrel and see if the gun was reliable. If not, swap out the internal frame parts to match the caliber you were shooting.

In the past few years, I’ve seen a lot less talk about swapping internals so I’m assuming the conversion barrels, in general, have become more consistent.
