I would like to know if the barrels can be swapped between G23 ant the G32. I own the G23 and would like to try out the 357 SIG but I don't want to buy a complete pistol. Any feedback is welcome.

yup, simple barrel swap. I go back and forth on my G35.
Plenty of places sell barrels

Thank twonami, thats wonderful. It's nice being able to have two calibers with one pistol. These forums are a great place for information.

Thanks again for the quick responce.

Will the 40 mags work with 357 sig rounds?
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 4:23:08 AM EDT
Yes the 40 Mags work with the 357 rounds.

I have a 357 Sig barrel on my desk that hasn't been used in years. Let me know if you want to buy it.

Hi cap .40 mags work with a 357 SIG. The 10rounders will nosedive.
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 11:20:51 AM EDT
I noticed that my Glock 357 sig mags hold 1 more than listed but not in my 40. Go figure

Sometimes you can squeeze an extra round in, but it really compresses the spring. It can cause failures once in awhile. I can get 11 rounds into a few 10 round .40 mags I have.

I think they start at about $100-110 for Glock barrels

You need a third generation Glock .40 after a certain serial number. Glock does not recommend the 357 SIG in second generation Glocks.
Topglock.com sells Stormlake barrels around $100, Glockmeister sells OEM barrels for around $125. 10 round .40 SW mags do not feed, the bullet nosedives , the hi caps work well.

Glockparts.com has Glock OEM barrels for $99.95.
Link Posted: 2/11/2006 11:43:52 AM EDT
Damn, thats good news. A factory barrel for my P229 is cheap when its $150.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 11:04:13 PM EDT
Hmmm...
I have a G33 and a .40 barrel I bought from Glockmeister.

I have 2 .357 mags and 2 .40 mags. These are 10 round mags...which for the G33/G27 is neither/both high and 10 round capacity!

I've interchanged mags and barrels with no failures in either .357 or .40. Perhaps the bigger guns function differently, but the little gun seems indifferent to caliber.

PM me with the price shipped and for what model.



I use 40 mags in my G32C(357) & w/40(G23) barral all the time. The 9mm conversion barrel works good also.

i have a G22 .40S&W with two .357Sig barrels, one ported the other stock.
a .22 conversion kit will be next

I shoot JHP in my G23/32. What do you use? I just ordered flat nosed bullets, maybe this will cure the hang - ups. When the bullets in the 10rd mags are nosediving, the cavity of the second round usually hangs up.

??? As a smith and Glock armorer, I'm not aware of the above cautioning statement. I have a G23 first gen (two alpha prefix) and routinely switch back and forth between my Glock original M23 40S&W and M32 .357SIG barrels. No problems. The only "upgrade" I have is a metal guide rod and not the plastic one. Any documentation on the warning?

The serial number prefix is listed in the Armorers price list. Also try and order a 357SIG barrel from Glock, they will ask what serial number you want the barrel for. Yes you can put the 357SIG barrel in the 2nd gen frames but it is just a matter of time before it cracks. The metal guide rod w/22# spring will help prevent it from cracking.

I do most of my shooting at an indoor range that requires Clean Fire ammo. So, I shoot mostly Lawman Clean Fire or Gold Dot Clean Fire. The Lawman is hardball and the Gold Dot is hollow point.

Where did you get a first genereation G23? The first generation was only produced till 1988, the G23 started in 1990, while the 357 SIG was put into production in 1998.

As a (certified?) Glock armourer, you should verify this with Glock directly, because it would be a shame if a wrong info from an armourer would lead to a damaged pistol.

Ptooma Productions Glock manual is full of interesting info on Glock pistols and is available from Midway for $27.

It was not my intent to confuse the issue, but what I tried to qualify that my pistol as a 1st gen M23, not Glocks on the whole. I purchased my M23 in Feb 1990 and not long after, was advised to send it to Glock for an upgrade, which I did. Became a Glock armorer in 1994 and "retired" in 1999, before the increased interest in the .357SIG. I have not been active nor diligent in keeping up on developments. I will offer that have not nor intend to fire thousands of rounds from the SIG barrel.

For HotRod9mm
There are several parts Glock will no longer provide, even to certified armorers, that they used to provide with little or no questions. Some parts are now replaced on an exchange only basis.
