    Actually, quite a lot...like buying an entire top-end. The .40 barrels are larger in diameter than the 9mm barrels and won't fit in the 9mm slide's front hole, for one thing. Going the other way (9mm conversion barrel for .40 Glocks) is easier.

    And you would need to change the ejector. You'd be replacing most of the gun and it would cost more than buying a Used .40, so I'd say get the whole .40.
