    Looking to convert my wife's G23C to a 9mm.

    I know I need mags and the bbl.....but what about the ejector?

    I know some people say you need it....but I seem to remember a lot of guys saying you don't. So, what's your experience? Needed or not?

    Also, what's your reliability with the Lone Wolf 40 to 9mm conversion?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    I did this recently and it has been reliable (1 FTF, if I recall correctly), my thread is on this forum. I changed the barrel and bought a G19 magazine, and did not change anything else.

    You can change the ejector/trigger housing, but it's not practical. If you change your trigger housing every time you switch calibers you'll eventually widen the hole in the frame for the trigger housing pin. I wouldn't want to do that.

    You don't say what she will use it for. If for target/range, fine, don't worry about the ejector mod. Mine has been flawless for 1K rounds of 9mm. But if you mean for CCW/SD don't do it -- she could wind up with a single shot gun at exactly the wrong time. If that's the case, get her a 19 or 26, what's her life worth?

    Exactly why I said the link was helpful. I'm getting her a 19 tomorrow.

    I also use my G23 with a Wolfe conversion, and came to the same conclusion, Get a G19, was looking for an excuse for one more Glock.

    If the conversion has proven itself, then I would feel comfortable carrying it.

    But it seems to me you're looking at this the wrong way.

    You get to go out and bring a brand new Glock home, and that's a happy day.

    150 rds w/out issue with just barrel and mag. Not a lot, but seems to be following the reliability trend. I only bought it for range though.
