Have you ever used Glock 17 mags in G31 or G22 or G23?

    I wanted to see if someone has tried this before taking the g18 mags and loading them with different caliber ammo. If you have done this please share your experiences. From what I understand the G17 and G22 mags are interchangable but not sure if G18 mags would work in the other calibers of same shell length. Thanks.

    Yes, with 9mm conversion barrel.
    The mag lips on G17 mags would need to be opened more for .40/.357.

    Could be done.
    Might ruin mag for 9mm use later.

    You need to swap the follower for the caliber that you plan to shoot.
    With just that change, they will run about 80-90% or so. With some light lip sanding to widen them, they can get close to 100%.
    I can fit 27 rounds if I really try, but fit 22 rounds with no problems. That is for .40/.357sig.
