The 19, 23, and 32 all share the same frame. A 23 upper should work on the 19 lower.

However, you could sell the 19, buy either a 23 or 32 and with just barrel and mag swaps use the same pistol to shoot 9mm, .40, and 357SIG.

Default My GLOCK Armorer said the same thing

the ejector is visibly different from the 19 to the 23, and "might" cause a jam. It is definitely not a factory approved swop to put the G19 barrel and/or slide on the G23 frame, and I will not admit having run three mags of 9mm that way with no hangup. Also, don't try to bend the .40 ejector with visegrips...
