Glock 9mm Conversion Experiment

I've got several .40 cal Glocks that I picked up cheap at Southern Connection. All except for one have been converted to 9mm with Lone Wolf .40-9mm conversion barrels. Drop in a barrel and add a 9mm magazine and it's ready to go. I read online that in a pinch you could just use the .40 magazines. I decided to try that with the latest one I picked up, a Gen 4 G23.

I loaded up a couple of mags to see how the 9mm fit in the .40 mag. The feed lip appear to barely hold the 9mm. The round sit a lot higher. I was concerned that the spring pressure from a full mag would force them out but it never happened. I ran over 50 rounds through it had never had a single issue. I would have guessed that it would have jammed with them sitting that high but it never happened.

I've read that Beretta's .40 S&W caliber Model 96 can "run" quite "okay" with 9mm Model 92 magazines - with appropriate caliber rounds loaded per the barrel bore marking... this "in a pinch"... and "vice versa" too.

Range shooting only recommended herein. :)

Personally, I've not ever "tested" this option...
and have no need to do so... ;)
