I have a G22 so what to be able to carry the same caliber if I choose or do target practice with the 9MM and determine if the recoil characteristics are so much better that I would go with the 9MM as summer carry or a BUG.

]From what I read it seems to be different.... but I do not know the implications. The barrel's rifling is different from the Glock OEM. You can fire cast bullets, reloads through the aftermarket barrels.


--If not what are the advantages/disadvantages?For you, being able to shoot 9mm through a .40 call will save $$$ in training simply due to ammo cost but the option again to use cast reloads more effectively is great.


--Is there a requirement for swapping out any other components to make the conversion. Some say you must replace springs, etc however I've seen plenty of people simply change magazines and barrel and function flawlessly.
