Hello everybody,

I was thinking of purchasing a 40-9 conversion barrel from Lone Wolf to drop in to my G23, and of course, buy a few G19 mags to go with it.

I got a few questions and hopefully someone can help me out or point me to the right direction:

1) How reliable is this conversion? I've heard both good and bad stories about this, but has anyone actually experienced this after shooting a few hundred or even thousand rounds?

2) Is it better to use a guide rod & spring that is designed for a G19 to accommodate this conversion?

Any advice you guys can give me I will really appreciate. Thanks!

I have heard by most Glock armorers, that it is fine but someone brought to my attention that if there is an issue, it will be with the ejectors. Key word... If

I recently purchased the Lone Wolf 40-9 for my G32. Other than the casings ejecting into my eye protection and on top of my head on occasion, there have been no problems. I shoot 9mm reloads through it. No hickups at all. I put about 300 rounds through it.

Out of My own ignorance. Why would you want a Barrel longer than the slide? I understand the obvious, increased muzzle velocity, possibly accuracy. That is if the longer time the bullet travels the length of the barrel, the slide doesn't begin to retract when the bullet is at the end of the slide yet still in the barrel?

Is this a personal preference or is there something here i don't know?
