There is a huge angle diff in glock caliber models the only thing I see working would b a .40cal to a .357 sig round that's it...
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the .40 and the 9mm use nearly the same extractor. On the Smith polymer guns they are exactly the same part. The conversion works inspite of what logic tells us should work.

I can use my 9mm shell plate to load 95% of the .40 cases I have tried. There ain't much difference.

Well may b true , they are diff angles on both calibers but for a full slide set up for $375 I'll just buy another gun . That's just me but I can't say much I got a factory 9mm kit for my sig 226 enhance elite and like it ... But even if it works for glocks I would rather have 2 lol

I'm going in the opposite direction. Just ordered 4 new barrels for my G-20. .357 Sig, .40 S&W, 10mm conventional rifled and 9 X 25. Considering a .45 slide assembly to make it a 5 caliber gun.

From bigger to smaller caliber, yes you can. Can't be from smaller to bigger caliber.

I have a G23 and have been using a .40 to 9mm conversion KKM barrel, I use it when shooting a local IDPA. I have had two FTE with Fed. Red box , other than that I have had no issues.Very accurate and it was a drop in. Although I have never used a Wolf, I believe to a certain extent you get what you pay for. Oh and I hate that goofy Wolf logo.
