... earlier today. Bought a G20 that I had been eying for a few weeks.

Being stuck in CA, I "get" to wait 240 hours to pick it up. Ughhh...


Anyway, after buying the gun I bought a LWD 10/357SIG conversion barrel and some other bits from Lone Wolf Dist. Is there anything I need to know about that setup? I have 0 10mm but lots of 357Sig on hand.

Load 'er up and go, or... ???

Yes, soon I will be adding a 10/40 conversion barrel also.

Welcome to the 10mm club TenSeven. :cheers:

Sorry don't know zip about 357sig.

Don't forget the 9x25Dillon conversion barrel. I don't have the 357sig, nor the 40 barrel yet, but I do have the LW 9x25, Barsto STD 10mm, and a LW 6in 10mm barrels. You may need to get different magazines to shoot the 357sig. I do know if they will work in your 10mm mags. Check the "General Glocking" forum.

The 357SIG is the 40S&W case necked down. Since the the 40S&W is nothing more than a shortened 10mm, I don't think there will be any problems with the 10mm mags. I'm thinking of getting a 357SIG barrel for my G20.

My set-up runs fine with .357 or .40 or 10mm.
Enjoy.

"My set-up"? Can you please expand on that? Do you have a G20 with the LW conversion barrels??


Per LW, the 10mm mags work fine for .40 and 357Sig so I have no worries about that at this time.

Thanks for all the replies, I'm really looking forward to buying some full-power 10 (My oh my, but is 10 ammo expensive! But I was well aware of that going in... am just sayin') and letting 'er rip.

Perfect excuse to start loading your own.

She's (G33) got more 10mm than most people around. The 10mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, 9x25 all use the same mag.
.357 SIG = necked down .40, and 9x25 = necked down 10mm. All are the same cartridge diameters.

Thanks for all the replies and info, I do appreciate it!

I'm not in the slightest worried about the mags in the gun, I am aware the 10mm, .40, and .357Sig interchange with no issue.

I intended the point of this thread to be aimed at the 10mm-to-357Sig conversion barrel I recently ordered from Lone Wolf. Is there anything I need to know about using a conversion barrel? Any exciting issues or pitfalls to watch out for??

I also want to build a .45ACP upper for the G20 frame... but that is for another thread :).

Thanks again to all!

10mm costs the same as 45 ACP where I get mine.
