    XD 40 9mm conversion question

    I'm new here and finding great info. I just bought a Buckmark Camper for the range to save on ammo costs. I have an XD40 Service that I just love to shoot but ammo isn't cheap, for sure. I'm reading in various places about the 9mm conversion.

    I've seen the 9mm barrels at a couple of places (noted on this forum). So, is that all you need to do other than getting 9mm magazine/s? Is there any trouble with the gun either feeding or ejecting the 9mm cartridges? I did see a video on You Tube where a guy had done some filing on the mechanism to get the 9mm cartridges to eject properly. I don't think I would take a file to this gun....I think I would just buy another XD in 9mm before messing with what seems to be a great gun for the price.

    Any info or suggestions are appreciated.

    XD 40 9mm conversion question

    About the only problem using a 9mm barrel in a XD .40 Svc is the .40 breechface is different (larger)and the extractor may not always work correctly on the 9mm cases.

    Thanks. Sounds like a perfectly good excuse to shop for a 9mm . One more gun just adds to the fun.

    I have an m 3.8 .40 and have a a 9mm "conversion" barrel (drop-in) coming from Bar-Sto as we speak. One of the best barrel mfgs there is. A little over $200. for the "drop-in" so it's well worth it compared to buying another new pistol, for me anyway. I also have a new m 4.5 .45 and a Sig 226 TACOPS 9mm. Hopefully, Bar-Sto will be finished with the run not too very long. Talked to Irv (the owner) a few times before ordering as well as with others and confirmed that there wouldn't be a problem. He did say that for some reason (like everything on a production line), every once in a while, they'll run into 1 from SA that needs to be fine tuned and at that point, you'd simply send them the slide and the new barrel to be "fine tuned" (basicly a custom fitting). Alot choose to do it and I didn't even know about the conversion from .40 to 9mm until after I had made my purchase. So glad as I can't wait until it comes. Btw, Bar-Sto's barrels are target/match grade and a higher quality barrel than SA's "match grade" barrel (nothing wrong with SA's but the Bar-Sto's better).

    *Update as of 7/27 . . . Got it in month's ago and it wouldn't drop in. Talked to Irv at Bar-Sto who told me to send it back and he'd fine tune it but I haven't had a chance yet. Gonna call him to make sure all's still a go with him correcting it.
