    1. Can I switch barrels/mags in an XD-40 cal. to a 9mm?

    2. Can I switch barrels/mags from a Walther P-99 9mm to .40 cal?

    I own both pistols and want to know if I can increase versitility of both.

    Thanks.

    1. Yes, with a conversion barrel. Unsure if 9mm can be loaded in .40 mags.

    2. No.

    9mm can be loaded in the .40 mags but it may not be as reliable as a factory 9mm mag. This is only recommended for range duty.

    Do you me the .40 cal mags loaded with 9mm should only be used for range duty? or the whole 9mm barrel/9mm mag set up? I'm thinking about selling this pistol as it's my only .40 cal, but if I can switch it to 9mm and be reliable yet also use it very occasionaly as a .40 it would be worth doing.

    It would definately need to be reliable as a 9mm as it could be a ccw pistol.
