    Interchanging Glock barrels

    Is it possible, without risk or damage, to place a compact or standard barrel into a subcompact Glock?

    I was just thinking if I took my G19 barrel and put it in my G26 gun, then I would essentially have the same barrel length in my subcompact as I do in my compact. Since the extra length of the barrel wouldn't matter in how it conceals, I would have the best of both worlds...except it would still be a bit harder to grip.

    I don't know about putting a compact barrel into a subcompact, but I know you can't use a fullsize G22 barrel (or G17) into a subcompact G27 (or G26). There are different dimensions at the lockup mechanism.

    I read that link when it was first posted, but for some reason, didn't make the connection. Amazing what you can remember with a lack of sleep JD.

    Drop it in. I've used aftermarket and OEM 19 barrels in my 26s for years.

    Yes, you can use longer barrels in shorter frames, and you can also swap back and forth freely between .40S&W and .357sig. Too bad you have a 9mm.
