    After a good amount of searching, it seems the G29/30 share almost identical specifications, with the exception of the caliber they are chambered for. I've read numerous posts and comments about converting the G30 to 10mm easily. However, I never found any solid, I've done this type info.

    So, this leads to my questions:

    Can I drop in a G29 10mm barrel into my G30, and use the G20/G29 mags?

    Is the guide rod the same for each model?

    Or, do I have to go with a KKM or Strom Lake drop-in style conversion barrel instead?

    Any input is appreciated.

    From what I have seen here, the 10mm conversion of a 30 is very straight forward. I am sure someone makes a 10mm barrel with a 45 ACP breach face-45barrel hood combination.

    The newest extractors have shown to work best. That being said, reliability is not always 100% with the 10mm barrel installed, according to sources here.
