Has anyone used an after market barrel in their 23? The .40 ammo is getting expensive and I'd I would like to practice with something cheaper in the same gun.
There are some conversion barrels online, but I have never used them.

I don't own one, personally, but, the LoneWolf 9mm conversion barrels are incredibly good, according to the users across the street, at another forum.
I came verrrrrry close to buying a G23, recently.
I came home with a G19 in 9mm, only because the dealer found one in stock.
(Originally, the a guy at the store said that they were sold out.)
9mm ammo is still less expensive than .40.

I own a couple of Glocks, and I have the AA 22lr upper for both of them. These are a must have items.
As for the conversion barrel to 9mm. Its not that much cheaper for 40S&W ammo. If you are shooting that much. then shoot 22lr!

The 22 uppers are fun to shoot with your mdl 22 Glock, but they are not cheap and not as accurate as other 22's...I like them because get to practice with the trigger on the Glock and the more you pull it the more you get used to that trigger.
You can shoot a thousand rounds for the price of 50 40 cal. But one thing I have found is 40 grain high velocity is a must for function of the slide and no jambs.
