There was a rumor going around that Combat Armory's barrels were made by BCA. Not sure if true.

Nomad, 2nd - I'll be passing through your neck of the woods this Weekend. Heading to Byrd's Off Road Park in Ozark, AR for an overland expo.

Can I loan you a Combat Armory G19 barrel that you can test out in one of your G23's? It's not a conversion barrel but I'm curious if it will work.
You could, but it doesn't sound like you'll be going anywhere near me.

I can save you the trouble though:

Glock 9 and .40 barrels have different external dimentions.
You need a 40-9 conversion barrel for a G22,23, or 27

basketweave Unlike the 3rd generation Glock in .40, the M&P was designed around the .40. $240 below.

Pinetreescent buy a glock 17 complete upper and replace ejector and magazines. Then you have a glock 17 9mm. Or you could buy a glock 17.

I bought my glock 22 from AIM surplus. Barely used with night sights.

If you arent into the 17 frame aim has g23's (19 frame)

kids.
You and I have had this conversation before, I'll tell you the same thing I did last time:

I'm not saying to put back 2 cases of each, or even mags.
Hell, feel free not to buy a single round of .40
(I did the below and put back 100 rounds..... They multiplied.)

What I'm saying is that for $X you can either:

1. Buy a G17 with Y# of magazines.
Or:

2. for slightly LESS MONEY you can buy a G22, and toss the .40 barrel and magazine in a drawer (or sell them) AND buy a 40-9 conversion barrel and the same number of mags.

I've done it.

Over and over again.

$55 barrel was Bear creek. I've picked up Lone Wolf barrels <$80 though.

for range use your fine shooting 9 in 40 mags or Vic versa.
Wouldn't do it when it mattered because.... Why?


If it bothers you to get more stuff you may or may not use for less money... Feel free to send them to me.

G22 is a G17 frame size actually (holds 17 while the G19 holds 15)

I have the most experience with Lone Wolf barrels, and have had really good luck with them. So far, never a problem. They were all around $115-150 when I bought them, and at the time, were the best deal.

The last couple of aftermarket barrels I bought, were threaded 17 and 19 barrels from Combat Armory, and they were approaching the $55 price point on sale. I think they may be running them at those prices right now too. I seem to remember getting an email from them the other day.

I havent seen caliber conversion barrels at that price, but I really havent looked for them either. Youll have to ask Nomad where hes getting his.

I had a 40-9 conversion barrel for my 31. It worked 100% with 17 mags.

The couple of times I tried the 357SIG mags with 9mm, I seem to remember having some issues (its been awhile), and they didnt seem to be as reliable. I had plenty of 17 mags, so it wasnt really an issue for me, I just used them.

Personally, Id just buy a bunch of the cheap Korean 19 mags. At around $8-$9 a mag, they are really about the best Glock mag deal going.

Yea, I can see the versatility, to a point, but for me, the reality of it just didnt work that way, and I still dont see it happening.

If you think its going to work for you, by all means, have at it. I just wouldnt get to carried away first, until you see how it goes, and how you end up investing.

I ditched 357 SIG, along with those cases of .40 and barrels I had for them as back up, about a decade ago, and went back to 9mm. Turned it all into plenty of 9mm guns, tons of mags, and tons of ammo (the fact that the cases of 357SIG ammo I had more than doubled from when I bought it didnt hurt either ), so I doubt it would be an issue for me, even if everything dried up today. Not in my lifetime anyway, or even my kids.

Personally, I just got over dealing with them a while back and prefer a whole gun instead of an extra barrel. Had a lot of money tied up in stuff that never got used and I eventually came to my senses and turned that into more whole guns.

The price of barrels does seem to be fast dropping, and its pretty hard to beat $55 though.

$300 .40+$50 9mm barrel vs $350 -$400 9mm

Actually LESS money for MORE capability.

Once I figured this out I sold almost all my 9mm's, replaced them with .40's with 9mm barrels and pocketed the difference.

YMMV.

Hick Industries Not a Glock fan, but these surplus police trade in pistols are available from various manufactures, and calibers.
Buy what you prefer. Every single one is a better deal than a Taurus, Keltec, or a Hipoint.

Nomad, 2nd 9 mm conversion barrels are as cheap as $55

Ankylus Great deal. Thank you. Just not in the market for a .40. (But I did notice your qualification "if you're a 40 fan". )
