The 9mm and the .38 Super are very close in the breech face area.
Have you considered doing the same thing for those?

When I called DW customer service on the phone to order the barrel, the parts man side you will need the 40 cal spring. He didn't specify the weight. He said I might need a 40 cal mag but I didn't. It was a drop in install.
