Alot of people seem to have no reliablity issues with converson barrels. Alot of people also seem to have no reliability issues with platinum coated gadolinium guide rods. But apparently sometimes a few do. For carry put me in the column that much prefers a stock gun.
I never talked to anyone who had to fire their gun who said "I wished I had the smaller gun and fewer rounds with me" Just because you find a hundred people who agree with you on the internet does not mean you're right.
