OK, so am I right when I guess that a G17 slide can be put on a G22 receiver and switch mags for the 9mm and it will work fine?

Looking at ammo prices today and would like to shoot more than what I can do with .40's. Checked out the .22LR on version kits but the ones for the 17/22 seem to have a year+ backorder. 22 would be better than 9mm, but 9mm is easier on the wallet than .40.

I'm not sure about that. The .40 and 357 SIG are interchangeable but I'm not sure about the 9MM.

I am making that guess/assumption based on the fact that the dimensions of all three (17, 22, and 31) are identical. But hat is n assumption and we all know what happens when you assume.

The problem I see is that the head dimension of the 9MM is .394 and the 40/357 SIG is .424. This could cause problems with extraction. I think the slide as well as the barrel and mags would have to be changed.
By the way, Charyoutree, I'm a huge fan of The Dark Tower!

All federal air marshalls carry the 357 sig. They are trained in Roswell N.M. on real airplanes that have been mothballed. If someone hijacked and airplane and holds a hostage as a shield, the marshalls are trained to shoot the hostage because the 357 sig will take out the hijacker too, also if you hit the airplane, it will not depressure the plane unless you take out a window.
The feds are looking at new calibers, including the 5.7X28 which has more penetration at close range and a greater range of accuracy up to 100 yds.
When the 5.7X28 is loaded with Hornady SS190, it will penetrate a swat vest up to 50 ft away. MY family are Atlanta Swat, Federal air marshall, FBI and Georgia state trooper and my Uncle was with President Clintons swat team. Now retired.

Placed an order for the LW 40-9 conversion barrel and some 9mm mags. Will post my thoughts on it after it gets here and I try it out.

What!?!!...What!??!?? Clinton's SWAT team. Is that the one that killed the Branch Davidians or the ones that stole a little Elian at gun point.

I have he 32 and shoot 40cal with the LW barrel. No problems. I have shot a bowling pin at 2-3 yards with a 44mag, 357mag and a 357sig. The 357sig is the only one that went all the way through.
