What's the latest buzz about barrels to convert from .45 GAP to .40 and to 9mm? I'm especially interested in the 9mm conversion. Is this even possible? Does Bar-Sto or EFK have plans for one?

The 40 might be possible but I don't think the extractor of a 45 Gap will get a grip on the rim of a 9mm case.

Well, with the Glocks I know that often people swap extractors as well. Could that be done with the XDs? I don't know if the extractor is as easy to change as a Glock. Would you have to knock that top pin out?

Ok...lemme get this. the .40 barrel and .45 GAP barrel have the same outer dimensions. So that means a Bar-Sto conversion barrel for .40 to 9mm will fit in a .45GAP slide, right?

Now we just have to provide for extraction.

I spoke to John and Irv at Bar-Sto and they say that a conversion barrel for the 45 GAP won't work. There is too much difference in the diameters. Sorry. :cry:
