Hey all,

I'm new to the XD and most guns in general.. I've done some searching and from what I've found the .40 can be converted into a 9mm. Is this correct?

If so, what would the price range to do this and how easy is it to swap the barrells back and fourth?

I ask because I'm looking at a XD 9mm, but if I can have a 2 in 1 by buying the XD .40 I'm thinking why not?!

Thanks!

They are ported pistol barrels.

To get the maximum versatility out of your pistol, I would get the XD 40, and a 9mm conversion, and maybe a .357 sig conversion. The slide for the 40 has a larger hole in the front to accomadate the larger diameter barrel for the 40 S&W round. So you can go from a 357 or a 40 to a 9mm, but not the other way around

Edit : Sorry about the double info Crit, I didn't see your post

I was under the impression you could get a .357 -=> .40 conversion as well?

with the conversion barrels, how about the magazines?

lets say I buy a .40, can I load 357 or 9mm in those mags? did some post mentioned yes but the last round jams or something?

can one do the same thing with a Glock? Sigs? eg barrels and magazines

I know this is a XD forum, but I'm sure I'll get unbiased opinions :wink:

Oh yeah, dude, you can totally load your 40 mags with 9mm and 357. It's rad.


Seriously, though, a 40 mag has the lips at the top pulled in just a hair tighter than the others. If you can't feed from the 40 mag, a little tugging with pliers will have you set up. Most don't require any modification, though.
