Look for it off on gunbroker or even the classifieds here-- be patient.
Again, why?? if you already have the conversion barrel and it is working? What's the point?
I have a couple of reasons but none of them are pressing. First, is that I understand that if I want to try some competitive stuff, I can't use a conversion barrel (and I mostly practice with 9mm) and the second reason is related to the 9mm...from what I've been able to see, I can reload at almost half the price of buying so I'm thinking about reloading. And, again from what I've read, the conversion barrel isn't very tolerant of reloaded cartridges.
