Glock .40 to 9mm conversion - who has one and what mags do you use?
With some of the recent threads going around, I've decided I need to pick up a backup compact handgun to allow me to stay armed after either a post-self-defense my-gun-is-now-evidence confiscation or a door-to-door Katrina-style "all your guns are belong to us" event. That second purpose may require stashing it in some unfriendly environments for a while, which essentially drove me to choose a Glock, for its simplicity and corrosion-resistant finish.
But I also want to make this pistol as versatile as I can. To this end, I started looking at conversion barrels to allow a .40 caliber Glock 23 to fire 9mm ammo. Seems pretty straight-forward, and there are two in particular that I've been looking at.
Lone Wolf 40-9 Barrel
EFK Fire-Dragon Conversion Barrel
If anyone's using one of these here, what are your thoughts? Are they reliable? Worth it?
I'm especially curious what magazines you use with each barrel. The Lone Wolf recommends 9mm magazines, but the EFK page says Glocks can use the original .40 mags. I suppose this might reflect a feed ramp optimization that EFK did and maybe Lone Wolf didn't, but I'm hoping someone will know for sure.
Also, I want to see how many people have had issues with the extractor or ejector. Supposedly, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.
In the end, I'm looking for one gun that will fire .40 or 9mm reliably with as few replacements as possible.
