    Hi, my name is Matt and addicted to shooting. I don't need help with my addiction, I need help buying the right Glock. So I was think G23 for the soul purpose of being able to shoot a 40 s&w(my favorite round) and buying a .357 sig barrel so I can shoot as well, but my can I get a 9mm barrel and shoot with same functioning parts as a G23, if so or not, what would need to shoot a 9mm?

    Lone wolf makes a conversion bbl that swaps out to 9mm. Shouldnt have to change anything else

    The G23 is a great choice for many reasons including the easy barrel swap to the 357Sig and the Lone Wolf 9mm conversion barrel. If you buy a Gen4 G23 there may be issues using the Lone Wolf barrel so check out their cautions.

    I now own a G23 gen4 it's the best handgun I've shot so far, does anyone have the Lone Wolf 9mm Conv. Kit? If so how is it? Does it jam? I read that they do for the gen4s.

    Thanks everyone for all your help. If any of you guys live in Chicago, il, lets go shooting.

    I have both 9mm and 357 barrels from Lone Wolf for my Gen 3. The 9mm works great. Basically turns my 23 into a 19.

    I have the Lone Wolf 9mm conversion barrel arriving this week for my Gen 4. Check back for my thoughts.

    I went to the range today with my glock23. It's a beautiful gun, the only thing I did like was the RTF it left marks on my hand after 28 rounds. I just ran up stairs to the gunsmith Alan and he gave me a cool rubber cover for my grip. Besides that at the 30 foot mark I had a nice 4 inch group. Shot 250 round today no jams no problems(not that I was expecting any). A buddy of mine got a awesome video of me shooting today. I'll try and upload it more sooner than later.

    That's my word, thank you for reading. Keep me posted on the conversion when it comes.

    Ain't that the truth. I don't wanna get crucified, but honestly I think the hi point is more attractive...

    You'll also need to pick up some 9mm mags to go along with the conversion barrel.

    The Lone Wolf 40-9 conversion barrels are nice to have. You only need the barrel and Glock 9mm mags.
    I have had no failures to feed with about 1,000 rounds through it. But I wouldn't exactly trust my life to it for self defense.

    I'm neither a fan boy nor a hater. I appreciate Glocks for what they are but pretty ain't it my friend. Glock has solidified it's position as the Ugly Betty of the hand gun world.

    Kinda like fat chicks and mo-ped's... Both fun to ride till your buddies see you on one.:)

    Tack

    Glocks are sexy, they are so ugly they look good. I'm not saying it's a 1911 but damn they look good, and I'm not a chubby chaser. I got taste lol

    Hi point???? Who buys that crap? I have a friend that bought one and the slide wouldn't stay on. He sent it back they sent one that wouldn't shoot a round the firing pin was bent. Lol more like low points.

    I have a gen 3 23 also with the 357 sig and 9 conversion barrels. I love em and haven't had a miss feed/fire yet (at least 10k rnds) and I use my 40 mags for all 3. tho I've heard others have had issues using 9s in the 40 mag, I haven't had any problems.

    So I'm trading my Glock 23 gen4 for a new Glock 22 gen4. A friend is paying me $550 for it, I payed $600 even. And he bought my 2 LoneWolf barrels(357sig and 9mm conv.) and two Glock 19 mags. at my cost. I didn't lose a penny. I'm going to buy a G22 and two new barrels(357sig and 9mm conv.) I can't wait I been shooting the the G22 more them my G23. I'm happy I didn't lose any money.

    The target was 35 feet away and I was a 100 rounds in before I started shooting the target.

    That's my word thanks for reading. Keep shooting and posting.
