Default Lone Wolf 40-9mm conversion barrel for Glock 23

I bought a Lone Wolf 40-9mm conversion barrel for my Glock 23, along with some KCI after market Glock 19 mags. I bought four magazines that came with mag pouches. All four of them worked without a hitch. Not bad for $40 total. I wasn't sure how the 40-9 conversion barrel would perform, but it was FANTASTIC! I just dropped it in and used the Glock 19 mags. I didn't have to change out the ejector or anything else. The barrel was really accurate, and was basically point and shoot. It only cost $99 and I can now shoot lead (sans jacket) bullets without worrying about a KB.

I had a lot of fun shooting with my LW 40-9 barrel and went through about 150 rounds in no time. The shots were fired mostly from about 20 feet, but some were at the 5-7 range. I can't wait to have my wife try it out. I recommend this barrel to those who want to save money while practicing, but want to have a .40 cal pistol at the same time.

so can you shoot metal or lead rounds out of these barrels because glocks aren't suppose to shoot lead only copper that's why the rounds are so expensive, does the regular g-17 barrel work on a g-22 i heard they do but havent tried it

I'm not sure about swapping stock barrels (G17 to G22).

I have been doing the same thing with my G27 as money allows. When checking around I was told you don't have to buy the conversion barrel 40/9. You can just buy the 9mm barrel and swap it out with the 40. Add a 9mm mag and your good to go. Two guns are better than one!

Yeah, the "conversion" barrel is just a 9mm barrel, but it allows you to shoot lead bullets without a jacket.

A 9mm conversion barrel ISN'T the same as a "regular" 9mm Glock barrel. A Glock .40 barrel's o.d. is greater than is a Glock 9mm's. That's why you need a conversion barrel, and not just a 9mm barrel. The 9mm barrel, e.g., G17 into G22 will fit, but it will rattle around at the muzzle.

Ah, that does make since. I didn't even think about the diameter of the conversion barrel vs. just dropping in a regular 9mm barrel. Good point!

Hope I didn't offend you by providing that information. Was just trying to be helpful.

No, you did not offended me at all. You actually brought up a good point that I hadn't previously considered. Your post was rather insightful.
