    Like the title says...what would I need to convert my G22 to .357sig?


    Not saying I'm gonna jump out an do it....but I'd like to know what would be needed and an approximate cost to do so.


    I've got fixed sights on my G22 so adj. may be advised with this.

    Wow....now you've really got me thinking.

    I didn't realize I could covert my G22 to 9mm. That is amazing. My wife would enjoy shooting it much more than .40S&W.

    Okay...so the 40-9 barrel you linked....some G17 magazines and I'm ready?

    What about recoil springs or other?

    Is it really that simple?

    Yah, we offer a lot of conversion barrels. All you need to go to 9 is one of our barrels & a G17 mag.
    The recoil springs are the same in the 17/17L/22/24/31/34/35/37 pistols.
    One percent of all 9mm conversions have an issue with ejection. If you have an issue it will be caused by 115 gr ammo. Some of this stuff is pretty weak. You can reduce your recoil spring weight to 11 lbs and that usually compensates. The best way to overcome an ejection issue is to move up to 124 or 147 loads.
