Default Glock 22 40 convert

Has anyone tried the Glock 22 40 and then converted to the 9mm barrel and magazine. If so how does it perform? Thanks. I am not a Glock fan but after trying several I am impressed with the weight as well as the ease and accuracy. Before anyone questions my statement of "I am not a Glock fan" it's because I had never fired one before. I may now be a fan especially if I can practice as a 9 and carry a 40.

I had a Glock 23 and did the same thing with a lone wolf conversion barrel. Every now and then I would have a malfunction. Polished the feed ramp more, changed mags and still had malfunctions. Not a lot but enough to get irritated with and didn't want to spend anymore money fooling with it. So I just sold it got a Glock 19 and was happy ever since. Side note I have read a lot of reviews where people are happy about it so with it could've been a fluke.

OK BSPC I heard that too. Question. Everyone I talked to said that had this same problem and attributed it to not swapping the magazine. After swapping the mag they reported no problems. Did you do this and still have a problem? Thanks in advance.

Yeah I did I have also read with the lone wolf barrels that the chambers can also be to tight sometimes which could cause it. But just like Splittine said about it being flawless I have a friend that has the same or would be that same as you G22 to 9mm conversion and his is flawless too.

I don't use Wolf barrels on mine. Never had an issue in the world with my KKM barrels.
