    I'll check on the Glock forums too, but I want to hear from you guys. If I replace the barrel on my 40cal Glocks with their 9mm conversion barrels (I own a G23 & G27), can I expect Glock reliability?

    Anyone have experience with these?

    My experience.

    I bought a 40-9 barrel from Lone Wolf for my Glock 35 and I'm that 1% that had issues, specifically stove pipe galores ever other round.

    I was using 9mm Winchester White Box and Remington UMC range cartridges.

    Lone Wolf suggested using different ammo brands (I have yet to try), cleaning the barrel (which I did) and/or change recoil spring (even though the G35 uses the same as a G34).

    Try it for yourself to see if it works....other brand besides Lone Wolf. Others had no issues, but me...I want to get rid of the conversion barrel.

    No problems whatsoever with my Storm Lake barrel.

    I have 2 conversion barrels for my 23, 1 .357sig and 1 9mm threaded. I believe they are both federal, as that is what Marty, the Lone Wolf distributor guy at the gun show told me when he sold me the 9mm barrel.

    I haven't had any issues with either of them, they both shoot great. Hell, the .357sig is more accurate than the factory .40 barrel.

    I bought a barrel for my Glock 10mm from Lone Wolf and ended up sending it back. When eye balling the feed area it was obvious the shape and cut of the feed ramp area was different than the stock Glock barrel. I called them and they admitted a run had gone through cut wrong. I sent it back and traded it for a longer compensated barrel for G-17. I like it with no problems.

    The 10 is back to stock again. I think the Glock OEM barrels are hammer forged quality units.
