    Glock 29SF Conversion

    Anyone convert a G29 to .40? Im assumeing you can get a Lonewolf .40 barrell for the G29. And will the G22 or 23 mags work with the G29SF? Any feeding issues with any of yall that have tried this?

    Yes, you can convert using that barrel from lonewolf. But you will use the g29 mags for using the 40. I have had no problems with mine at all.

    The g22 and 23 mags will not fit.

    You had mentioned the G29 in my Night Guard post. Is the 29 the next size down from the 20? Just like a 19 is the next size down from the 17? Please excuse my ignorance!

    How does the 10m compare recoil wise to a full house 357 load?

    Yes, the 29 is the small version of the 20. It is comparitive in size to a 23.
    Power wise, the 357 and 10mm are fairly close balistically, but of course the 10mm is a 40 cal. As a matter of fact the 40s&w was made by shortening the 10mm. The 10mm really begins to outclass the 357 when you start launching bullets above 150 grains. The 10mm is stepping into lower 41 magnum power after that.

    Recoil is very managable in the glock pistol, probably due to it's polymer frame allowing it to flex, therefore absorbing much felt recoil.

    One cartridge that is often overlooked and can be fired from a g20 or g29 is the 9x25 Dillon, which launches a 9mm bullet from a necked down 10mm at an amazing, sizzling 2000 fps. The short version of this cartridge, which can also be fired from the glock, via conversion barrel is the 357 sig. Hope this helps. Let me k ow if you need more help, as I have all of these conversions for my glocks in 10mm.

    Thank you! That is very helpful! I have shot a Glock 17 and 19 but never a 40cal or 10mm. I really need to shoot more guns other than revolvers before I purchase!

    I saw Ted Nugent kill a charging 400 lb Russian Boar the other night with his 10mm! He took four shots but I think that was more about his adrenaline than actually needing four? Those are very tough animals!!

    Yes, I wish everyone would jump on the 10mm bandwagon. It really is the most versatile auto pistol cartridge in existance. As a point here, I would suggest buying ammo from Double Tap to get stuff loaded to it's full potential. The only over the counter stuff I know of that is not watered down is Winchesters 175 grain Silvertips. Oh yeah, uncle Ted uses these too!

    actually the glock .45s have a very low bore axis which helps with recoil...that along with a nice wide grip gives their large caliber guns a surprizingly light perceived recoil...

    G20 is full size and the G29 is subcompact, there isn't a regular compact 10mm Glock like the other calibers.

    Recoil wise the 10mm and .357 are very close IMO.

    I'm pretty set on the G29 as my next carry gun.

    he only over the counter stuff I know of that is not watered down is Winchesters 175 grain Silvertips.
    Buffalo Bore makes a stout 786 ft/lb load too, it isn't cheap though..
