    I'm NO expert, but I wouldn't use it in my 9mm if it were me.

    Not not too entirely sure but I'd have a feeling you might get possible failures to feed.

    It work's! U can interchange 9,.40,.357 without any problems! I do it often. Saves from reloading mags all the time

    Hate to see what happens when you stick a .40 mag full of 9mm in a .40 cal pistol.

    its not a .40 cal pistol.
    i have a 9mm.
    the .40 cal mag fits and looks just like the 9mm.

    Yeah DO NOT do that! I guess I should have been clear. Only shoot the calibrated round that matches the barrel! Only the mags are interchangeable!

    I wouldn't use it. Sell it and buy a 33-round 9mm magazine if you can legally own them where you live.

    There is a little confusion here as to what is interchangeable and what isn't, here's what the real answer is... Regardless of a .40 mag fitting in a 9mm and vice versa they are not interchangeable... Glock considers all mags interchangeable that are the same caliber ex: the G17 mag will fit in a G19 and G26... That is what Glock means regarding interchangeability...

    Now it may appear that your .40 mag works, FOR NOW! The .40 mag has a different size follower than the 9mm mags do which can and most likely will prove to cause problems later on with FTF issues when you may be in a situation that you need the weapon to work most... I and others here suggest that you use the appropriate caliber mags to avoid any issues and future frustration... May cost a bit but trust me it's worth it and since you have a .40 mag you are on your way to maybe eventually purchase a G22 to compliment the 9mm, I hope that this helps you and others out :)

    The highest capacity 9mm Glock magazines you can get in Ohio are G17 magazines with magazine extensions. There are some aftermarket companies who make magazine extensions that you can use on G17 magazines in Ohio.

    These extensions can be put on G17 magazines to increased their capacity to 27 rounds, and that is legal in Ohio:
