    A friend of my tells me that in order to change from
    a G17 9mm to a .40SW or a .357sig that all I had to
    do was buy a barrel and a magazine. Is that really all
    there is to it??????:dunno:

    Your friend is wrong.
    You can convert a 40 or 357 to fire 9mm ammunition with a simple conversion barrel.
    You can not convert a 9 into a 40 or 357 with a complete top end.
