Bar-Sto conversion barrel plus what else for a dedicated conversion to 9mm for my P229 chambered in 40S&W? Login/Join

I’ve decided to formally convert one of my P229s, chambered in 40S&W, into a dedicated 9mm. I already have a Bar-Sto conversion barrel. What else would I need to make a dedicated 9mm? I know a lot of you have said that is enough but I have enough P229s to make a dedicated change. In addition, is there any specific brand or type of magazine that would work/fit best?
Thanks!

I would get a 9mm recoil spring and the newer P229-1 / 9mm bottleneck mags will fit your P229/40-357 frame correctly but if you have the P228/229-9mm straight sided mags they will also work ok but if your buying new I would go ahead and get the P229-1/9mm bottleneck mags which will be a true fit.

Some will/have used the P229/40-357 mags without issues but I wouldn't use them for anything but range/fun use.

I completely agree with Mustang-PaPa. That's how I configured my two P229/40s

No need for a different extractor? How reliable has your setup been?
Thanks.

My two were range guns and not fired extensively, however, I never had any malfunctions.

I am not even sure that a different extractor exists-I have never looked for one.

At one time there were different extractors for 357/40 and 9mm P229s. I believe, however, I’ve read that that’s no longer true and one extractor is used for both. Plus, I’ve never heard of any problems for people who use 9mm conversion barrels in 357/40 slides.




“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Good to know. I'll get a dedicated guide rod, 9mm recoil spring, and a P229-1 and try her out.
