    No, a 9mm conversion barrel in the G21 would fail because:
    1) The 9mm is way to weak to reliably cycle the gun
    2) The slide breach face is way to big to accommodate the 9mm case

    You are quite correct, 40 Super is NOT the same as 40 S&W (not even close). A 40 Super is actually an improved 45 mag case necked down to accept 40 cal bullets. Its a smokin' hot 40 round! FYI: it is 50 to 200 fps faster than the 400 Corbon. The 400 CB is a standard 45 ACP case necked down to accept a 40 bullet.
    YES, 40 Super can be found at Double Tap Ammunition. 400 CorBon can be found at Corbon. Tell 'em JR from LWD sent ya
