    9mm Glock conversion barrel to 22 caliber

    Has anyone had any experience with conversion barrels changing a Glock 17 (9mm) or Glock 26 (also 9mm) into a .22 caliber long rifle cartridge?

    Are magazines available to handle the 22 caliber rounds?

    These are the best kits in my opinion for 22 LR conversion. I have/use and know another dozen that have/use.

    There are other brands but none that work well in my opinion, no where near as good as these.

    Call me in a couple of months!
    I have been looking for something like this...I just ordered the .22LR conversion kit for my wife's Glock-26.
    All orders are on back order for 6-8 weeks.
    I purchased one extra mag and the .22LR conversion kit (which has one mag)...this gives me the kit + two mags for under $300.

    Stay armed...practice with the cheap ammo...stay safe!

    I used a Glock19 22lr Advantage arms conversion for more than 2 years !

    A great gun, never had a malfunction. I can count on my hand the stoppages over thousands of rounds, and it worked like a charm with a can on it !

    The only downside what the 10rounds mags.. i'd like to have 15 if i could...

    Mine works well, you just have to find the load for it, and not lube it like a GLOCK. Great kit, and I'll save the cost by June.

    Ordered one today for Glock 26 from Adv Arms.

    Any problems with 36 grain 22LR bullets?

    The only bulk ammo that it says you can use is the Remington Golden Bullet. I have the Adv Arms LE kit for my Glock 30. Works well, but it jams a little more than I would like. The high velocity ammo like CCI mini mags work better. But for the price difference I can deal with some jams (good clearing practice )

    From the website:

    What type of ammo is recommended?

    The conversion kit works best with 40 grain High Velocity ammo, however, we have found Remington 36 grain hollow point Golden Bullets also work very well.

    Is there any ammo that you do not recommend?

    Yes. We do not recommend Stingers or other Hyper velocity ammo. Also, the kits do not function very well with Federal or PMC ammo. DO NOT use Remington Thunderbolts as they will lead up the barrel.

    My kit for the 17 works with Remington Golden, and that's it. You'll need to play around a bit and find the one that works, guy. Sorry I can't be of more help! The one thing I can tell you is to start with high velocity ONLY.

    Folks, most of the failures seem to be from under power, ie low velocity for the bullet weight. Polishing the action can do wonders for reliability, even with bulk ammo. Some smiths suggest tapering the rear of the slide and weaken the recoil spring. I don't suggest this without considering the fact that after several thousand rounds the action may be smother and the drastic alterations not as needed. I POLISH LIKE CRAZY, and use a good lube and have very few problems with my guns. I have ordered an AA kit for my Glock 26 and will practice a lot with it.

    I ordered a kit for my G26 on April 28th, but I'm still waiting for it.

    Has anyone else ordered a kit recently and received theirs?

    I sure do like the idea of: "Pop! Pop! Pop! There goes 15 cents." rather than "Pop! Pop! Pop! There goes a dollar."

    Of course I will still practice with full loads, but since I'm new to shooting I think the kit will help with learning trigger control.
