    Yes,try e-bay
    All you will need is a barrel and mag.

    Cost, 100 buck's more os less.

    I think they recommend that you change the extractor and maybe a few other things internally. I do think it will work with just the barrel/mag change but maybe not 100% reliability. My brother converted his 35 and he also changed the ejector, extractor and spring loaded bearing. Those were all pretty inexpensive.

    As stated a barrel and possibly a mag , tho some .40 and 9mm mags actualy are interchangable . just dont expect it to be reliable for carry with the conversion installed . it will shoot , and shoot fairly good , i just would not trust it for carry .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Chuck, I think you're going to find the Breech face is going to be different, along with changing the Ejector, and extractor. Also, the firing pin strike location may very well be off center.
    If you want to enjoy some cheap shooting with the gun, you could invest in a Atvantage Arms 22 Conversion kit and shoot all day for cheapo money.
