Conversion barrel for 45 acp
 
If I buy the barrel for my glock to shoot 10mm does the barrel support both rounds or do I switch back and forth?

You have to switch back and forth, the barrels are chambered for the specific caliber.

MOST auto pistol cartridges headpsace off the case mouth. They are sensitive to case length, as well as diameter. As said, you cannot run .45 GAP and .40 out of the same barrel.

I did not know my Glock 30 45ACP would fire 10mm rounds with just a change of barrels. What about the magazine?

Yea all you need is to use different clips I have also heard having to change extractors but I don't know....

Thanks Beau. It sounds if I do this it will be permanent and I will then have a Glock 29.
How many Glock owners feel this is a good idea? Don't wanna ruin my 30 in any way!

Me personally I would rather buy the 10 mm just because I don't want to break down my glock every time I want to shoot a different caliber
