    I have been wanting to pick up a Glock for a long long time
    and before I 'pull the trigger':cool: I have a couple of questions.

    I like the idea of using one gun for several hot calibers and
    the .40, 10mm and 357sig seem to be good candidates. I have
    a couple of questions about this.

    1)What would be the best direction to go

    Glock23 in .40 with a (2nd)357sig barrel
    or
    Glock29 in 10mm with a (2nd)357sig (or even 3rd .40?)
    or
    Glock31 in 357sig with a (2nd).40?

    Is it possible to fire 10mm through the #23/#31?

    2)How easily can the barrels be swapped out? Could I drop
    the barrels in myself in a few minuets or is that impractical?

    1. Go with the 29. You get 3 calibers instead of 2

    It is no possible to fire 10mm out of the small framed glocks.

    2. I don't have any hands on experience with this, but I think most aftermarket barrels are drop in. There are some that require minor fitting, but that shouldn't be to hard.

    yettie,

    Most aftermarket barrels are drop in. If you have any questions ask the seller about them or ask GT.;f

    nigneil146 is right. Your 40 cal and 357 sig guns can be interchanged without any modifications to the gun other than barrel change outs. But you can by the 10mm Glock and have all three. You wont have to change extractors, ejectors or mags as the case is basically the same at the base.

    IMO it would be a sin to make a 10mm a 40 or 357.;) ;) ;) ;f

    Take Care
