    I would like to get a 9mm conversion barrel for my new Walther P99 .40 Auto.

    Does such an animal exist? Who? What? When? Where? How?

    Thanks!

    I don't think anybody makes one at this time, but you might try giving Bar-Sto a call to find out for sure.

    Sorry guy - can't put a 9mm barrel in a .40 or .357sig pistol. The head diameter is different.

    You'll need a new slide too.

    Yes the diameter between the Walther made .40s and 9mms are different but Bar-Sto had plans to make a 9mm barrel for the .40 slide. Not sure if they ever did or not though. They do/did make a .357sig barrel for the .40 slide though.

    Yes... .357 <-->.40 is a legit swap. The different head (base?) size of the 9mm is a completely different problem than barrel diameter.

    Maybe they machined the barrels to dfferent sizes to prevent someone from just dropping in a 9mm barrel & getting themselves mangled?

    // Neato - post # 357 !!
    // What an appropriate thread for it... :D

    Something to think about ...

    Even aside from the breech face dimensional differences between 9mm & 10mm(.40) ...

    The extractor and ejector (part of the sear housing block) are caliber-specific for the 99 series. Both the extractors and the sear housing blocks are marked for the specific calibers for this reason ...

    A friend of mine resolved this dilema by buying one gun in each caliber.;)
