    I bought a Glock 17, I liked it so much, that I bought a model 22 so I could have a .40 on the same frame and feel. They are both Gen 3. I adjusted the sights to the side on the 17, and it shoots right on for me now.
    Now the model 22 was shooting to one side the first two times I shot it (60 rounds). So I moved the sights over to compensate. Seemed over the next 70 rounds, the sights needed to slowly be moved back to where it originally was. Well that seems strange. Does the barrel kinda shift or get seated in against something after the first 100 rounfd?? I've heard people talk about breaking a barrel in on rifles, but never knew or understood what really happens?? Any If you guys tell me I'm crazy, or this is highly unlikely, thats OK, I may buy that. But please don't tell me it's my trigger finger. I paid very close attention to my finger. OK, that isn't a problem anyway right now. It's only got me curious.
    Now, the model 22 is shotting about 5 inches high for me at about 60 ft from target. My 17 shoots right on hieght-wise. I'm not any weaker in the wrist than anyone else. I know the .40 cal has more recoil than the 9mm. But 5" high at 60ft?? Whats your guys thoughts?? Is there any way to adjust sight height??

    The short and simple answer is keep practicing.

    Well since MM got that out of the way. Did you buy the g22 bc you wonted 2 glocks or just bc you wonted a .40 in the same frame? You know you can buy a conversion barrel for a g17 and shoot .40 with it and save some $.

    I didn't know that they could swap barrels. I did know there was a couple models of glock, that you could, and 357 sig was a chioce also. However I still would have made the purchase. I'm glad you brought that up though. I was thinking of buying another 17 though. Then one can be kept in a designated place in house for any family member in case of need, and I'll still have my own. When you guys say practice, do you mean practice aiming 5 or 6" low?

    Actually, you cannot convert a 9mm to a .40, you can convert a .40 to a 9mm, but not the other way around.

    You can turn a 9mm glock into a .357 sig or .40. You can turn a .40 into 9mm or .357. You can turn .357 into 9mm or .40. Oh and you can turn them all into .22lr also.

    It is said .357sig and .40 can use the same mags and extractor. But it is advised to use 9mm mags and extractor if turning .357 or .40 into 9mm Or use .40 or .357 extractor if converting from 9mm to .40 or .357.
    The .22lr will come with a new slide

    I hope that isn't to confusing.

    Actually I thank you can putt a 22 slide on a 17 and it will work that way. I'm sure someone will be along to straighten it all out.

    Not that I want to drift from original questions. But correct me if I'm wrong. As far as clips go for the model 17 they make a 10.15, and 33 rounder. And for the model 22, they make a 10, 13. aM I wrong or missing any?

    Yea, you can do a slide swap no problem, but as far as barrel/mag only conversions, you cannot go up.

    I don't have a glock so I don't pay much attention to them. But I'm sure the standard mag for the g17 is a 17 rounder. Unless you live in California or somewhere like that. Also I thank I have seen a 30 rounder for the g22. And just so nobody says anything they are called mags or magazines not clips. Some people take the proper terminology thing series.

    The model 22 also has a 15 round mag and I believe a 31 round extended mag.

    For a Glock 17 you can get 10 rounders, 17 rounders or 33 rounders.

    For a Glock 22 you can buy 10 rounders, 15 rounders and 22 round mags.

    thanks, SSGN-Doc and everyone. Look, I want to buy one more Glock right away. I do want it to be able to fire 9mm. Why cant a 17 convert to a .40. Is there somrthing physical that prvents the interchange. I mean the clips and slides interchange, I don't see what prevents this, or whats the difference ?? I initally was going to buy another 17. But if I buy a another 22, and get some clips and barrel for a 9mm, I will have both in one gun. I heard the cost for this conversion is about 150.00, am I right??
    Also, what disavantage is there for turning a .40 into a 9mm. Whats the pros and cons of this?? Is there a weight difference, balance issue or what??

    Not many disadvantages to converting a .40 to 9mm, except reliability, but with a little tinkering that can be solved. A 9mm can't go to .40 because the hole in the 9mm slide is not big enough to allow a .40 barrel through. And yes, you're correct, the cost is ~$150.

    It seems that no one answered your question...

    You can buy different rear sight heights which will change the height of your point of impact[POI].

    GLOCK rear sight
    It looks as if you can get a shorter one than the standard, which would drop your POI.
