    I like the idea of the 9mm conversion barrel. I hadn't considered that.

    The wife would kill me if I bought a new gun right now, but I could probably convince here that I "need" a 9mm barrel to save on ammo.

    For once... her lack of gun knowledge may play into my favor!

    Yep, for around $100 for the barrel and a couple of 9mm mags, your G23 can become a G19. But the G19 cannot become a G23. I like my G23 and wouldn't trade it for a G19, but it's a Gen 4 and works fine.

    their the same size so I can't see how the 19 is any better for CC. It really comes down to the fact that 9mm is cheaper to shoot and has less recoil. 2 extra rnd capacity never hurt either. I'd trade, but I don't care for .40 but thats me.

    Maybe ur friend is wanting for 23 so he can have the 40 and then get the 9mm conversion.

    I would not trade my Glock 19 for a 23.

    Is there a black conversion barrel available?

    I guess it really doesn't matter, but I'd prefer to keep the barrel black like Uncle Gaston intended.

    All I saw over at Cheaper than Dirt was the stainless by Lone Wolf.

    No, there is not a black conversion barrel that I have seen and I have looked. Also, the barrel for the G19 DOES NOT fit in the G23. You have to buy the conversion.

    Although, one could get the conversion barrel refinished if they wanted to.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!

    I would not trade my G23 for a G19. Like said above, I would keep the 23 and get the conversion and mags as I have done this already and am very happy.

    Like Richard58 said, maybe your buddy is looking to do this with your pistol.

    did a quick google and found the black barrel in .357 which also fits the G23 but didn't locate a black 9mm barrell on lonewolfs home page
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    Is that the actual Glock barrel for the G32 or a different one?
