Like to see that one.


Sorry. My dyslexia again. I have a 10mm barrel for my Glock 21 in 45 acp.

I can't keep up with everything that changes in the Glock world, but being a G20 fan I was ready for a good surprise!

In such a scenario, I’d prefer a working gun or two over a sack full of parts.

Kimber 1911!

I have a full size SS target model which with a simple barrel, spring, and magazine swap will shoot 9mm, 38 Super, 10mm, or 40 Smith. I also own a slide and barrel to shoot 22lr on the platform. I do not own the 40 barrel at this time.

I am not real familiar with all the particulars of the 1911 platform. But am fairly certain that a 22 TCM barrel would work in my gun, with the appropriate mag.

To shoot 45, I would need to replace the slide and put in a shorter ejector.

I am not very skilled yet with the barrel change procedure. It takes me three to five minutes to change barrels and cartridges. I do so at the range frequently.

I have about $1600 into the gun, 22lr slide, eight mags, and three barrels with springs.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

I've been waiting for someone to mention the Phillips and Rogers Medusa Model 47 revolver as a multi caliber firearm. It is pretty neat but few were were made and not many come up for sale. When they do it is amazing how much they want. It fires any .38\.357 or 9mm round except the Makarov.

Can you do that? What about the ejector? If this is correct, I could put a 9MM upper on a 45, correct?


I'm shooting from the hip here. That may work going from a 45 to a nine. The ejector is different but the kicker may be that the feed ramp on the factory 9mm pistols may be different.

I have four solutions for you that none of them require any changing of parts whatsoever:

1. Any .44 Magnum revolver. Can shoot any variety of .44 Magnum, .44 Special, or .44 Russian.

2. Any .357 Magnum revolver. Can shoot any variety of .357 Magnum, .38 Special, or .38 S&W. I am not sure, but maybe also .38 Long Colt.

3. Any .32 H&R Magnum revolver. Can shoot .32 H&R Magnum, .32 S&W Long, .32 S&W (Short), and, believe it or not, .32 ACP. Note that .32 ACP actually has a bit of a rim on it. It seems like there is another .32 cartridge that I am forgetting also that will work.

4. Any .22 Long Rifle caliber revolver will work with .22 LR, .22 Long, .22 short, and .22 CB Caps. However, .22 Longs are almost impossible to find now and .22 Shorts are pretty uncommon.

No on the 38 S&W. It is a larger diameter case. The semi-rimmed 38 Auto and 38 Super will work.

3. Any .32 H&R Magnum revolver. Can shoot .32 H&R Magnum, .32 S&W Long, .32 S&W (Short), and, believe it or not, .32 ACP. Note that .32 ACP actually has a bit of a rim on it. It seems like there is another .32 cartridge that I am forgetting also that will work.

Glock 35 here with 357 Sig and 9mm barrels.

Shooting 9 mm 147 grain bullets out of that platform is really fun.

3. from a 327 Federal you can also shoot the 32H&R along with the other 32s

You can't normally shoot .38 S&W from a .357 or .38 Special, the base of the case is larger than those two. You CAN shoot .38 Long or Shorts thru them, though. They were derived from the .38 Colt.

My 1911 used to do the following...

.22
9mm
.38 Super
10mm
.45

I found I never swapped to the other cartridges, so I sold off my conversion units, and now I'm down to just .38 Super and occasionally 9mm.

One pistol, multiple cartridges?


<> https://i1.wp.com/mygunculture.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Bond-Arms-Derringer-Barrels.jpg <>


Also, accessory barrel sets are offered in several lengths and finishes - And any Bond barrel set will fit any Bond derringer.

There are about 20 different barrel calibers available.

Tanfoglio Witness Elite = 22, 9mm, 10mm, 45acp (complete tops required). The 9mm is a lightweight slide.

1911 = 45, 9mm/38super(same slide), 10mm/40sw/357sig(same slide), 22 of your choice. Need to swap ejectors.

Glock 20 = 10mm/40sw/357sig, 45acp(w/slide), 22

Have a Sig P220 and P226 ...and a .22 conversion slide which works on either frame.

...just need the correct .22 magazines for either frame.

My solution is keep the pistol in primary caliber then change to .22 as conditions dictate. Needs CCI Stinger ammo or similar to cycle slide.

The .22 conversion has great sights, shoots straight like a ray gun, same feel/trigger as primary caliber...22 ammo light too.

Even if you have all the slides/barrels to change over, still need matching mags to feed. All that stuff is heavy!
