    In Gen 4. . . .

    Obviously the slide, barrel and mag.

    I understand the ejector is different as well.

    Anything else? Thanks.

    The slide, barrel, guide rod(RSA), extractor, spring loaded bearing, firing pin, trigger housing, ejector, magazines(mag tube, follower, spring, and insert aka inner floorplate).

    I listed the trigger housing and ejector separately for a reason, besides the ejector itself, the Gen4 9mm trigger housing is different from the .40/.357/45GAP version.

    Thanks. In converting a Gen 4 22 to 9mm, what parts are key to reliability and accuracy?

    I'm looking at a Storm Lake conversion barrel. Any other parts?

    In a Gen4, the recoil spring assembly. Just trade for a 9mm pistol.

    I'd use only the G22 .40-9mm conversion barrel with G17 magazines. I would not change the extractor, however if you want to permanently convert the gun to 9mm you could use a 9mm ejector.

    Because it's Gen4, it may eject more positively if you use a Gen4 G17 guide rod(RSA) which has 0-2-4 marked on the guide rod base instead of the Gen4 G22 0-1-4 guide rod.
