    Can the G-19 be safely converted to another caliber?

    Well, if you could find someone to build you a barrel in .30 Luger, you would be fine with that conversion. :whistling:

    Now that I think about it, you never stated that you were looking for just a barrel change. You could buy a slide/barrel setup for a G23 or G33 and put it on your G19 (assuming it isn't a 1st or 2nd Gen G19) - with some suitable mags, you could then handle .40 and/or .357SIG and/or 9mm in the one pistol.

    I think mine is a 3rd. gen., if the latest is the 4th. How do you tell?

    The safest way to tell is that if it has fingergrooves, it is a Gen 3. If it doesn't, it is most likely a Gen2 (because there were very few Gen1 G19s).

    Why not a Gen4? Because Gen4 G19s have not been released yet.
