    I swear I have Google'd this so please don't flame me too much. I have never done a barrel conversion on any of my pistols so I'm treading new waters here.

    I have a G23 and came across a 357 sig barrel conversion. Which mags can I use? 31 and or 32? I have read that some folks are using their regular G23 and G22 mags with no issues. I guess I have just assumed that wouldn't work but maybe the rounds are close enough in size?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    The G23 mags work fine for the 357sig conversion. I have a G23 and have done the 357sig conversion. I decided to get the G32 mags for the 357 conversions just to keep everything straight. You can also get a 9mm conversion barrel to work in your G23, you just need to buy G19 mags and your set.

    I use the 40 and 357 mags interchangeably, without issue, in my G23. I also have a G22 size 357 barrel, but haven’t **** it. When I do, I will use G22 40 caliber magazines.

    Well then. I guess not everything you Google is wrong. I still think I’ll keep it all separate (not use my 23 mags with 357) but it’s good to know. Thanks for the assist. I’ll probably also get a 9mm conversion but i already have a 19 sooooo I may skip that for now.
    Thanks again!
