    I've played w/ the idea of converting one to 38 Super. I've done everything but ordered the barrel. Start w/ a Model 20, put in a 9mm extractor, and get a custom bbl. from Jarvis or Bar-Sto. The 10mm mags hold 17-18 38 Supers, and 38 Super feeds and extracts fine cycling the gun by hand.

    There was a thread on this in the 10-ring a couple years ago...

    Why thank you. Just happen to have a 20 sitting right here!:wavey:

    I'll get the extractor from Lonewolf and talk to Barstow AND Jarvis to see who likes the idea best.

    My Winchester FMJ flatnose cycle great out of the 10mm. mag.

    I'll keep ya posted.

    Wow. The two Glocks I've always wanted are a longslide in .357 Sig and a .38 Super. I've known how to do the one. Now the other looks realistic.

    My ammunition budget does not thank you.

    One other thing that I'd highly recommend - and this was debated when we had a thread about this before (in the 10 Ring, I believe): You may want to consider going with 9mm Super Comp brass. The debate was between what would be more reliable: A true rimless case to avoid feeding hassles in the double-stack G-20 magazine, or a semi-rimmed case that would aid in alignment with the breech and probably better engagement of the extractor?

    None of us ever went through with the project, so it's still an unanswered question.....

    john rico former owner of classic pistol in southampton,pa. was having glock 29 10mm
    outfitted w/ a bored out 9mm barrel to the specs of the 9mm super comp which by the
    way he perfected years ago to assist ipsc shooters and it was the 9x23 case utilizing 9mm bullets. any how this setup apparently worked out just great even using the 29's
    magazines...
