no

you can only go down in size

unless you change the whole slide to the corresponding slide for the 40 S&W, then you can get a conversion barrel to shoot 9mm again

or just buy another Glock in the caliber you want

Thank you for the info. Is the barrel diameter too large on the .40 cal?

Let's see, if that was a good or even safe idea don't you think Glock would make thinner walled barrels to start with? Be safe and do things correctly.

and what would the correct way be? if you have 40 cal. barrel what does the diameter come out to be?

The safe way is to buy a conversion barrel that is correctly designed for what you want to do.

Like others have said, you can only convert to calibers equal or smaller than your slide is set up for

for you, it seems 22lr is the only option

OR

try "google" for glock m19 caliber conversions, you might find something
