    Hi Glock community!

    I have a gen3 g23 that I got new this past November. After 1,000+ rounds through it, I'm shooting fairly tight groups....just slightly low and left.

    With my newly acquired 40-9 conversion, my groups got tighter and my shots moved right where I wanted them! Asian mags worked perfectly btw!!

    News flash.....g23 is now for sale and looking for a g19!!

    I have a .357 sig barrel that I'm more accurate with over the .40 as well as with the advantage arms conversion....that .40 is a tough round to shoot for a newb!!

    Seems like several folks, including me,
    found that they shoot better with a 40-9mm conversion barrel
    than with the OEM Glock 40 barrel.
    I'm coming around to thinking it's no coincidence.

    less recoil always means better groupings. my groupings are within half an inch with my SR22 whereas my glock 19 gen 4 are at a respectable inch to inch and a half

    keep it and get 19 to match it
    my 27 is more accurate with 40-9 also...

    I am another shooter whom seems to think the conversion barrel is more accurate. I actually have started carrying my 27 with the 9mm barrel on occasion recently. I've shot a few thousand rounds through it with no failures to feed so I am comfortable with it. In the past I have stated that I would never carry an aftermarket barrel & especially a conversion barrel for protection, but I can't argue with the perfect record that my 40-9 barrel has.

    I have a lone wolf .40 conversion barrel for my G20, I get better accuracy with the factory 10mm barrel. When it comes to 9mm conversion barrels I jut purchase the equivalent 9mm Glock.
