G23 to 9 conversion

If I were to get a .40 to 9mm conversion barrel would I have to swap out the ejector? The 9mm is just for the range no self defense or carry so I'm not worried about a couple FTF here and ther. Can I just witch barrels and go?

With the 40 to 9 conversion barrel you are not supposed to have to swap out the ejector,you will want to use 9 mm magazines for best results. SJ 40

some conversion barrels need fitting, some do not...my Storm Lake conversion barrel did not...my only changes are barrel, G19 magazines (but G17 or similar will work too), and cartridges...mine has been 100% with 124GR 9mm...

How was your 9 mm accuracy?

What I've heard is that the smaller barrel will slop around in the larger barrel port in the slide, badly affecting accuracy.

Ed: when you get a chance, compare size of groups from the 2 barrels. "Inquiring minds want to know."
