If you have a glock23 how hard is it to buy a 9mm barrle for it and clip to change out the cal. is it possible???Is it reliable? Can you go the other way?? Say you have a 19 can you go to .40 cal with it?? How many have done any of this?? Looking at the .40 cal for the nock down power of it but like the idea of the 9mm for the cost of ammo for just plinking in the woods with the family.

I don't believe it's that hard. You just need to buy the barrel and a mag. I've seen 40/9 conversion barrels on Lone Wolf. You can pick up a mag about anywhere. If you're going to carry for ccw, I would not keep the 9 barrel in the gun. Bt this will be fine for plinking. Hope this helps.

You can go forty to nine but not vice versa. You need to practice with your defense load. On Glock Talk, the Go Ask The Experts section, someone can tell you exactly what to get.

All you need is a 9mm barrel and a mag. You can also convert to 357 sig. You cant convert from 9mm to .40 or 357 sig according to glock the frames are different.

What is the best brand for reliability and accuracy? Does the conversion void the warranty?
I have a KKM 357 sig conversion barrel in my G23. It is every bit as accurate as the factory barrel, if not more. As far as the warranty goes Im not sure.

Is the G23 the only Glock that can be converted? How about the 45 ACP's?

Also keep in mind that glock no longer recommends converting to any other caliber than they made the gun for. Thus voiding your warranty.

I recently went to [email protected] and parused their stock for both. The same brand box of fifty for the .40 was only $2 more than the 9mm. I bought two boxes of 100 round Remington JHP's for only $32 each (they didn't have that deal on 9mm, could have been just that particular store). I was so happy with the price, I bought some shoot-n-c targets and a pair of his own (no more using Dad's hand me downs) decent hearing protection for my oldest son so I could teach him how to shoot the new .40! The overall cost is negligable when compared to how many rounds of 9mm you would have to shoot to catch up to the purchase price of a barrel and two mags for the conversion. As someone posted earlier, that is just my opinion and everyone has one. Hope this helps!
