    I plan on shooting 9mm through a 40 to 9 Storm Lake conversion barrel with my Gen 3 Glock 27. I purchased a couple of G26 mags but I was told I would also need to replace the G27's extractor with a G26 9mm version. Is this true? Thanks for the info..!

    A conversion barrel doesn't require anything else to function properly. My 40/9 Lone Wolf conversion barrel in my G27 runs flawlessly.

    been running a LWD 40 to 9mm barrel in my Gen 3 G31 for several years with only the barrel change and 9mm mags, even ran my G31 top end on my G37 with the LWD conversion barrel without a hiccup.

    my advice would be to try it and see what happens, if you experience issues, address them with extractor/ejector changes as needed.......if needed.

    My 40-9 conversion barrel works fine in my Gen3 G23 and G27 with 9mm mags. When I tried it in my Gen2 G23 it wasn't extracting the round. After inspection I noticed the original extractor (circa 1993) had a small chip at the very bottom corner. While it worked fine on a .40 case, it wouldn't work on a 9mm.

    I was going to replace it with a new .40 extractor, but then decided seeing that I had another G23, to get the 9mm extractor, bearing, and trigger housing and just convert that G23 into a G19. No need to mess with swapping barrels at the range now.

    I'll have to remember this post if I ever get a G27.
