Hi Guys,
I know this may have been asked before. My time is limited tonight so please forgive me. I was thinking about buying a glock 23 3rd generation. Will I be able to change the barrel to a 9mm if I desire. Or is there another compact glock that has more barrel swap options.
Thanks
Brian

You will need to get a 9mm conversion barrel. It is not a good idea to try and use a G19(9mm) barrel in a G23.

But you can just drop in a G32 barrel for .357 Sig...

Your stock .40 mags will also work with the .357

I just found a nice glock 32 for 400 bucks. What are my barrel options for that. Will I be able to turn the glock 32 into a 9mm or 40 cal. I have a few glock19 33 round mags. Will I be able to use these in the glock 32 if I am able to change it to a 9mm barrel.

You can drop in a factory glock 23 (.40) barrel or get a 9mm conversion barrel.

Not a bad deal at all.

As stated you can purchase a factory G23 barrel to shoot 40S&W or get a 9mm conversion barrel for 9mm.

Yes the G18 33rd mags will work fine in the G32 with the conversion barrel.

Watch out for the face of your slide. The face should be wider for the .357 SIG cartridge base and may not grab the smaller 9MM base with the extractor which will cause you a number of problems.
