Default Sheild 40 to 9mm conversion??

Just picked up the sheild in 40 and was wondering if anyone knew where to find a conversion barrel or if they even started making them. Lone wolf or storm lake doesn't seem to have them.

Why would you want to change a 40 to a 9? if you don't mind me asking.

I don't mind. I have three 9mm and round a thousand rounds laying around. I want the forty for ccw. Where I'm from 9mm is cheaper to shoot than 40

I wonder if there is a difference in the extractors between the 9mm and the .40S&W.

If there is, I would imagine the .40S&W extractor might not grip the 9mm as well. And cause FTE.
