    Hello,

    Already had a used G22, bought a used G23 (Gen 3 w/Rail) this weekend:

    - Probably 90-95% in box
    - Night sights
    - two 15-RD pre-bans
    - two 10-rd flush fit G23 mag's

    $575 OTD

    Range tested the G23 yesterday afternoon, it goes bang and functions flawlessly as I would expect. A little more lively than my G22, but the addition of a Hogue Handall and some more practice should help...results were very satisfactory none-the-less...

    I find that the 15-RD pre-bans flush fit in my G22 (snap cap cycled fine). My G22 10-rounders function fine in the G23 as did the pre-bans, while both protrude slightly from the grip (obviously the flush fit G23 mag's are too short for my G22).

    A few questions...
    1) Is the same to be expected with the G27? (I know G35 is one-for-one w/G22...my nephew has one...we use our own mag's when we fire each other's for practice)
    a) Would 10-rd/15-rd G22 mag's function, just protrude from grip?
    b) Would flush fit G23 mag's function?
    c) Or does G27 uniquely require G27 mag's?

    2) My understanding is that I can drop in a G32 barrel?
    a) Will I need G32 mag's or will G22/G23 mag's reliably feed .357 Sig?
    b) If .357 Sig specific mag's are required, would G31 mag' also work?

    Thanks in advance,

    N'

    Can't speak to the .357 stuff, but as to the .40 mags:

    The longer mags will work in the shorter guns. I frequently carry a 23 mag as a backup when I have my 27, and I use my 35's mags (same size as your 22) in both 23 and 27.

    As with any magazine used for defensive purposes you should test for reliability with the firearm and ammunition you intend to use it with.
