    Hello all

    A quick search of putting a G22 bbl on a G23 seems to show that the G22 has a slightly different size locking area?

    Can a G22 bbl be fitted to G23? I ask only because Lone Wolf has threaded bbls in stock for the 22 but not the 23.

    Thanks

    Eric

    No. Different lugs & locking blocks.

    If you do it, you will likely have to remove the firing pin to get the gun apart.

    And the locking block can not be adapted to the G23.

    I can vouch for the same with the Glock 17 and 19. It was not fun.
