    If my G22 has a nice, tight slide-to-frame fit, and I one day buy a G31 barrel for it, should I expect it to function like a G31, or will it function like a G22 that was converted to a G31?

    It will function like a G31. The only difference in a G22 and G31 is the barrel and what is printed on the mag and the side of the slide...

    Why would changing the barrel affect the slide to frame fit? :dunno: I would expect it to shoot like a nice, tight G31.
