      NEED HELP! possible to convert a 96a1 to a 92fs?

      So i bought a beretta 96a1 .40cal, love it. recently i got a dud round and blew my barrel. i know rookie mistake, but it happened. After going back and forth between emails with beretta customer service and Brownells (the company they contract all their replacement parts through), i finally tracked down a new .40 call barrel for a whopping $400. the new gun in the box was only $650, so i really don't want to almost rebuy the gun for just a barrel.

      Solution:
      After a little brainstorming i came up with the bright idea of buying a 92fs barrel, which is 9mm, and some new mags. i figure since the 96a1 and the 92fs are so similar and use so many of the same parts i hope i can just slide in the new barrel and mag and be on my way with a frankenstien 96a1 9mm.

      Before i go buying a bunch of parts for a gun a don't have, i was wondering/hoping that someone has had experience or more knowledge in this matter than I. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

      Heck, Cheaper than Dirt was selling the slides (complete) for that conversion for a SONG. I want to say they were $299, but don't quote me. This was a while back, but I know they are sold.
