Personally, I'd love it if this was true in every thread.

And, YES, a loaded 9mm round will drop all the way through the barrel on a Glock 22.

No math problems here.

I just took the barrel out of my XD .40 and dropped a full 9mm round in the barrel. It went right through and fell out. I also loaded six 9mm rounds into the magazine and they fit in like they were meant to be there. Another post suggested that it might be a .45 so I tried putting 9mm ammo in a .45 magazine and you could tell right away that it didn't work.

I agree with the original post saying the the 9mm will slide right through a .40 barrel. I just did it.

He came to shoot his duty gun, a Glock 17, but the entire cartridges kept falling out of the front of the barrel. This officer was not new on the job as he was going to retire in a year and a half. He handed me the barrel and showed me the ammunition which were re-manufacture 9mm. As I inspected the barrel and the ammunition I notice that the barrel looked to be in perfectly good condition but he was right, the entire cartridge slid through the barrel.

He said he needed the gun by Saturday as he had to work that day. I showed him a couple Gen 4s and said if he got a note from the boss we could do cash and carry. I also offered to let him use one of my guns in case we couldn't work something out.

At any rate, I reassembled the firearm and as I started to look at the serial numbers to log the firearm in the Gun Smith book I notice that it was a Glock 22. I said this ain't a nine it's a forty and he replied that ain't my gun. I said this has to be you gun you just gave it to me.

Seems someone grabbed the wrong firearm out of the gun locker and the rest is prerecorded history.

The officer left with a little egg on his face but damned glad he didn't have to buy a new pistol. Another Glock Horror Story. Strange but true.
A local deputy told me that a Glock is the Only pistol. He Quit the force but still wanted to be a reserve on the force..... He failed the first course b/c his GLOCK Failed. So who is at fault. Revolver Lover..............

Many manufacturers use the same mags for 9mm and .40, just stamped with the specific caliber.

Can someone post a vid of a 9mm sliding through a .40 barrel. Then we can lock the thread and save some bandwidth for pics of redheads and such.

There you have it. That makes 3, so I would venture that this case is closed.

I do have a .40 cal barrel at home and some 9mm - I guess I can check it out tonight when I get home to see if it holds true for "other" brands other than those of plastic origin.
