I don't think it would be possible to go from .40 to .45GAP as the diameter of the barrel is larger in the .45 and therefore the opening in the slide would have to be larger...

You had to go and say that! Here I was all set in buying the 9mm conversion for my V-10 ported!

Any idea when the .45 barrel will be available.

CAN YOU SAY GROUP BUY!

GROUP BUY!!!!!!!! :shock: 8)

truth be told I want a 9mm for cheaper shooting, but hell I'd carry a 45 as well.

3 guns in one, for under $700

now where's that .22 conversion at?

Actually, the OD on the barrels are the same, from what I was told. Stay tuned, I am sure they will be out in a few months.

If that's the case would there be conversion barrel vice versa. If I were to buy a 40 then I'd just buy a 45 GAP.

I'm with the Drew I don't think it can be done from a .40 to a .45 GAP, not because of the barrel but because of the .40 breech face not being large enough to fit a .45 round.

Well so much for that exciting news, well back to the 9mm conversion for my .40 ported, by the way the Don's Rod and #22 spring ensemble on the ported .40 worked just fine, non hiccups on the range.

Any problems extracting spent shells with the 9mm conversion for a .40 ? Wasn't sure how the extractor would catch the smaller diameter case.

XD Service Model 9mm Conversion Standard Barrel

This is two different barrels as listed as options on the EFK FireDragon web site. I'm a little confused as to which one to buy as I have an xd 40 and want a 9mm barrel for it. Can someone tell me what the difference is between the two and which one I should get for my 40?
