    I'm thinking about getting a full size glock for funsies and noticed lone wolf sells 9mm conversion barrels for .40 glocks. Anyone tried one? Wondering how well the conversion would work in say a g22

    I've shot them, they work well. To get it to run flawlessly you also have to swap out the ejector as well.

    I've not taken apart a glock before but from what I've heard that shouldn't be too rough.

    I was originally going to buy a cheap 17 to horse around with but maybe I'll consider a 22 now, $100 extra for the flexibility of shooting .40 if I ever get the urge doesn't sound bad especially since I already keep around .40 bullets for 10mm...

    It's cake. What you need to make it run well is the barrel, mag and ejector. I've ran it with out the ejector, and it's %80. It'll run, but will get hung up every once in a while.

    Cool, I can't think quite yet why I would want to start shooting .40 but with older 17s and 22's being so cheap....$100 extra just for the option will be hard to resist :big grin:

    Get a spare 9mm slide, then you won't have to mess with the ejector at all.

    While the 9mm conversions work they are not as reliable as the as a non conversion. The reason being the breech face. You can get the conversions to run fairly reliable if you use the correct caliber ejector housing, and extractor. The barsto and KKM conversion barrels are much better than Lone Wolf. I really don't care for most lone wolf stuff. Only thing i think is decent is their connector.

    I got their multi-tool for Glocks. It's actually really nice. The brush on the end is a cool feature.

    Another vote for the lone wolf barrel in a 23, works just fine

    While the lone wolf barrels do work in that they will fire the ammo the tolerences of the barrel are way off. The dimentions of the barrel hood are short so the barrel and slide do not lock up the same each time. Also the OD by the muzzle is too small so there is front end shake. So when the barrel gets hot there is vertical stringing. The best thing I can say about the barrel is loosey goosey.
