Anyone try a conversion barrel in their Glock? I have a Glock 23 that's a .40. Its the only .40 I have. The others are 9mm. With the ammo prices the way they are...I figure it would just be easier to use one caliber at the range. My local range doesn't even have reloads in .40.

I'd get a conversion barrel and a couple G19 mags. Would I also need an extractor too? That seems to be 50/50 from the stuff I've read.
I dont think you need to change extractors... I know lots of people who swap 9mm/40 cal barrels. I dont think you need to swap mags - but, it's probably not a bad idea.

my dad has a lone wolf conversion barrel for his 23 and it works flawlessly. As mentioned you can run 9mm through.40 mags, but I wouldn’t do it in a defensive situation.

Got it down to 30sec a round.

started tonight with 100 annealed and sized brass. The last time this brass was shot it was raining. Ammo was wet so pressures were too high. Went to prime the brass and the pockets were loose. Like push the primer in with a finger loose.

about 9 years ago I was shooting a ton through my M14, so I bought a RCBS primer pocket swage to decrimp NATO brass. Stopped loading it and the kit went on the shelf.

Tonight I learned you can easily tighten up primer pockets with the damn thing. Pretty damn happy I don’t need to toss out hundreds of dollars in Lapua brass.

Cool thanks! I'll probably get a couple Magpul G19 mags. Looking at the Blacklist barrel.

I asked about the extractor is because some people say that the G23 extractor will send the 9mm casing straight up instead of out to the side.

Picked this guy up last week. Put in a tuning kit from Cajun Gun Works. Should be a pleasure to shoot.

Just picked this up last weekend. Working on a Ronin 1911 Colt in 10mm.
I got a 1911 in 10mm. If you don't mind a slight increase in recoil (don't know your experience), you'll love it. That cartridge is a beast, and compared to semi-auto calibers, it's very flat shooting. Love it.

Please do. With all the Glock fanboyz around, it's nice to see some real handgun connoisseurs.

Here’s my Rami decocker version with Hakan made grips. Shoots like a full size. I don’t typically carry this one because it’s just too nice to sweat all over so I usually have my P10-S at the hip.

An obligatory Colt Govt 1911 pic while I got her out for a range date later. ❤️

The Rami is gorgeous. I wanted one before I got into the compact and full size scene.
How do you like the P10?
