    Jason,

    That would be the models chambered in 40 S&W, or 357 SIG only. The 9mm would also require a different slide, as the case head is smaller than the 40 or 357, and would need a different extractor/ejector. you might also need a different recoil spring for the 40/357 conversion as well as mags, but i think the 40 and 357 mags will interchange.

    Lone wolf makes a 40/357 to 9mm conversion barrel so if you buy their barrel, you can use your stock slide.

    In no way can the slide be a stock configuration. The DIAMETER of the 9MM case head is way smaller than the 40S&W, or the 357 Sig which is based on the 40 S&W. The extractor, would have problems.

    Oh yes you can. The Lone Wolf barrel works perfectly. It is basically a .40 S&W sized blank but chambered in 9mm, so it fits right into the Glock 22. The .40 extractor is large enough to catch the 9mm brass just fine.

    But it doesn't.

    I've seen this work with my own eyes using a stock slide and it ran just fine. (I think there is a video of a guy on You Tube demonstrating one, too).

    The .40 extractor does extract the 9mm shells, though not quite as far or hard as the .40s.

    Note that this is NOT a stock Glock 9mm barrel just dropped into a .40 Glock. Its a special conversion barrel to fit in a .40 sized frame.

    +1 Bean. I own a Lone wolf 40 to 9mm conversion barrel using on my Glock 23. It has functioned 100 percent. I have fired around 900 rounds with no issues. As an experiment I used my 40 magazine filled with 9mm cartridges and it worked, But Lone wolf recommends using a 9mm Mag (which I agree is the way to go). No other changes were needed. Just drop in the conversion barrel, and use a 9mm mag.
