    No, you can swap the barrel but a slide would put you in ESP.

    Take note of the bold word for future questionable parts reference.

    If it isn't on this list, it isn't SSP legal.

    PERMITTED Modifications (Inclusive list):
    1. Sights may be changed to another conventional notch and
    post type (see “sights” in glossary for further information).
    2. Grips may be changed to another style or material that is
    similar to factory configuration (no weighted grips; see
    “weighted grips” in glossary for further details).
    3. A slip-on grip sock and/or skateboard tape may be used.
    4. Internal action work may be used to enhance trigger pull as
    long as safety is maintained (no visible external modifications
    allowed).
    5. Reliability work may be done to enhance feeding and
    ejection.
    6. Internal accuracy may be worked to include replacement of
    barrel with one of factory configuration and original caliber.
    7. Plastic plugs may be used to fill the opening behind the
    magazine well.
    8. Custom finishes may be applied.

    ok, then i have another stumper for you. if i want to shoot my XD9-V10 in ESP, obviously i'd have to get another barrel as porting/compensation is not allowed, however, will the vented slide count as slide lightening?

    or should i just chunk the gun altogether?

    There has been an official policy statement on that.
    If you put in a barrel without the superfluous holes, the openings in the slide do not count as lightening cuts.
    You would be ok.

    I think you have all the C model Glocks to thank for that rule clarification.
