    Sig or Glock barrel conversions?

    I'm a newbie here and to pistols in general, in fact so new that my application for a permit is still in the works. Here in New York it takes forever. Been waiting almost 8 months since I turned in all the paperwork. No pity parties please.
    In any case, I've been looking at my next purchase already. I'm intrigued by the barrel swaps avail for both Glock and Sig. Been seriously looking at the 357 Sig/ 40 combination. A bit confused with some of the threads though. Is there a pistol made by Glock or Sig that will accept a barrel for 357Sig, 40 cal AND 9 mm? I know the mags are the same for the 40 and 357 and there is a no tool barrel swap, but can you change to a 9mm too? I would have to assume it would be a mag and barrel (maybe spring too) change, but can you shoot all 3 calibers with just 1 frame?
    Thanks for the help.

    Just putting this back on the top of the list. Got 30+ reads but no responses. Thought I may get some advise from people with the 357/40 combo's. if not, thanks anyway.

    I'm sorry don't have alot of expertise, I'm pretty sure if you get a Glock .40 S&W G models (22, 23, 27) you can get a lone wolf barrel to convert it to a 9mm or 357sig, but I think you need those respective magazines otherwise the gun wont feed.

    So just make sure you get the Glock .40 and you will be able to convert.

    I would suggest to you that by the time you buy a 9mm barrel + mags and a 357 sig barrel + mags you might as well have just bought yourself a second pistol...

    Good luck getting your permit, New York is such a beautiful state, too bad I will never live there theyd consider me an outlaw

    Check the Sig site - x-change kits appear to be available in all 3 calibers for the P229 and the P250 - probably for others as well.

    Thanks Jake, permit is pretty much a done deal. Just waiting my appointment with the county Judge. He personally interviews each applicant the has passed the local sherrif investigation, the Feds background check and the mental health investigation. This is why the county I'm in takes so long. The 40/357 combo only seems like the cost is the barrel conversion kit about $150. But the 9 mm exchange has me A little perplexed and intrigued too. 3 different rounds, 1 frame to get used to, 1 trigger pull to master and shoot 3 calibers.
