what happens if you shoot .40 s&w in a glock 20?
I don';t know how the triple post happened I am sorry guys
Your hand's and face blow off, try it. No problem.
It goes bang. It will usually cycle it too. Make sure you clean the chamber out good before shooting 10mm through it again.
I have shot several hundred through it at a time, and I have still never had a FTF/FTE.
As it has been said, clean the hell out of the chamber so you dont interfear with the headspacing.
Shoot it up!
If you owned a Glock 20 would it be foolish to purchase a conversion barrel? or should I just shoot 40 S&W out of my 10mm when I feel like shooting 40?
I read where people do it, but you won't catch me doing it without it being a dire situation or using a conversion barrel. If you want to shoot both get a S&W 610...
DON'T do it without a conversion barrel. You can get a cheapie Federal barrel from Lone Wolf for about $90, and I have never heard of a complaint about them. Your extractor is all that's holding the cartridge in place.
I fired 20 rounds of .40s&w out of my stock 10mm barrel, but then I started getting nervous. It worked perfectly and the slide locked back.
I ordered a KKM conversion barrel and have put about 2K rounds of .40s&w through it. Money well spent.
That answers my question....gonna order a G20 as soon as they are available with the right mags. Also planning on picking up a 40 and 357 barrel, from some of the posts I was starting to wonder if I really needed to buy a 40 barrel....guess I do.
Anyone have a link on where to pick up conversion barrels??
If you buy 10mm plinking ammo from Georgia Arms for 190 per thousand and keep the brass, it ends up only costing a few cents a box more than CCI or Wolf ammo, neither of which you can reload. Reloading seems to be the only way to be truly cost-efficient when shooting a 10mm. I considered getting a .40 barrel for the G20 I just ordered, but I'd rather practice with something hotter than .40, especially when it costs less to buy 1k rounds of 10mm than buying a barrel and 1k of .40. I know it is cheaper to shoot .40 long term, but relaoding will cure that ill.
I reload 10mm since starting to shoot it. I think I am the only one in the area shooting it that I know, well at least at my range. 40S&W is more common here as LEO's came in all the time to qualify and practice. So, the brass is easier to come by, you can use the same dies to reload as 10mm, but save on the cost of powder as it does use less. However, the primer is small. So, I do think over the course of time the conversion barrel would pay for itself. It really depends on how much you shoot. It's nice having a choice. In fact I've been thinking of buying a G20 and conversion barrel. I now shoot a G30, S&W 610(10mm/40S&W), and DEGC;f
Where can I find CCI ammo for less than $190 per thousand. Also I wasn't aware that wolf made 10mm ammo. You are talking about 10mm right?
