    10mm is .40 cal. The bullets are the same.

    ergo: you already have a 40 cal barrel in the g20.

    The case differs but why would you want to go through this gyration?

    If it's to save money on ammo, why didn't you buy the g22?

    I've heard that the G20 can shoot 40S&W, 357SIG, and even the 9x25 Dillon just by switching out barrels. You can use the same magazines. Makes for a versatile gun for people that don't want to spend a lot of money on other pistols. As for me, I'd rather have more pistols:D

    Actually, if we want to get down to brass tacks....

    G22's have a 10mm barrel in them, since 10mm auto was brought to us in 1983 and .40 Short and Weak came about in 1990. ANd even though its design was brought by Smith and Wesson, Glock was the first .40 S&W cal gun sold to the public.

    .40 was first called the 10mm Wildcat.

    All history aside, if you want .40, buy a G22 like the man said.

    hey hey, the .40 is a good round. :D:D:D:D

    I've read this same thread a thousand times and it always ends the same. I'll save you the trouble.

    Save your money and buy a 22/23/27 if you want a .40. After you buy the barrel and the mags you might as well have bought an entire gun.

    Glock 29(10mm)

    Love the G20. THe G29 will be my baby soon. I can't wait to get it! Should i replace the recoil spring immediately? I've heard the recoil is brutal and i don't want to break my gun. Are there other parts on the G29 that are at risk due to the power of high pressure rounds? Thank you for any advice/discussion on the G29. :)

    Is it new? Recoil spring assemblies should last at least 3000 to 5000 rounds.

    Ummmm. IF the parts were prone to break, Glock wouldnt allow them out the door. Ive run some seriously hopped up, smoking pcp and snorting steroids handloads in my gun. 0 FAILURES.

    THe only failure my G20 has experienced, was my dumb ass getting lube in the firing pin channel, and therefore Fing me at this years IDPA postal shoot. In which I should have scored in the top 25, rather than 200 something due to 13 fail-to-fires.


    BUY IT<SHOOT IT< LOVE IT.

    full pressure 180gr would send my brass 25"accross the range. and this whole time I thought that was because my G20 is badass! ;)

    Congrats on the G20. I have one and love it. It's my woods gun. LWD makes some good conversion barrels for a really fair price. You can also shoot .357 Sig and 9x25 Dillon out of the G20. The 9x25 Dillon round is AWESOME! Check out Double Tap ammo. They make some really good loads for all the above mentioned calibers.
