I am looking to have a stock factory P226 9X19 chambered barrel reamed to chamber 9X21. Any recommendations as to who can handle this type of modification? I already tried GGI and they are not accepting custom work at this time. Thanks in advance!
I was given a bunch of 9X21 ammo and I have a spare barrel. I live out west behind enemy lines, easier to have a multi-caliber platform than buying and waiting 10 days to pick it up.

Would the same magazines work?
-- Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past me I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. --
Yes, the same mags work.
Overheard at an actual match:
"Tapers! Come on, guys, we need tapers!"
"No, my name's Gonzales."
Apex, Cylinder and Slide, Arizona Response Systems, said they don't do this kind of work.
Grays Guns is too busy to accept custom work till early next year.
I'm waiting to hear back from Briley and Robar.
perhaps call manson reamers...might be something you can do yourself.
Tried Robert Burke?
Yes, said he doesn't do that type of work. I found a local smith who said it was possible.
Try this shop. Phillip does a lot of off the wall barrel conversions (.32naa in RUGER LCP).
It never ceases to amaze me where naive people think they're safe from harm. There is no way to predict when something bad is going to happen nor where it will occur.
Sent barrel out and is getting modified,should have more to post once I get it back! Thanks!

Bruce, eMail sent. Thank you!
I'm interested to know if this is possible. I've got a Beretta 98G Elite II slide marked for 9x21 and would make a great addition.
It's done! Local 'smith was able to open up the chamber using a standard 9X19 reamer to allow for the 2mm of difference between the cartridges/rounds. I was able to source a used DE marked P226 9X19 barrel for the. Project. It's just the beginning as I plan to have another made sometime down the road from a new barrel. The ammo. I'm using is Fiocchi 123gr 9X21. It is a little snappier but not much as compared to standard 9X19 ammo. There's more ammo specific testing I'd like to perform. Thanks to everyone!
