Is this possible? I understand there is a magazine issue with the 9 mm to 357 conversion. Will a 357 barrel even work in a 9mm pistol? If the dak to da/sa is even possible, what would be involved. I realize it would be simpler to sell the dak and find a 357, but I do believe that would be trading my new p239 dak for an unknown used gun.
The P239/9mm frame will not accept the P239/357 mags so that kills the deal.
Understand. While I was digging through the threads, I discovered there might be a fix involving a S&W mag. Would it be feasible to convert my DAK to DA/SA and leave it at 9mm?

Beside what Mustang-PaPa just wrote, The 9mm slide face will not accommodate the 357 SIG case head.
Yes, you can convert DAK to DA/SA with the correct parts.
I didn’t think the 9mm to 357 would work for that reason, but I thought i’d get a second opinion. I wonder if the parts to convert DAK to DA/SA are available? Probably should call. DAK is not my preference, but it is much better than Walther’s anti-stress trigger.
From Top Gun Supply's website...
Parts to convert from DAK to DA/SA
•Decocking Lever Spring
•Decocking Lever Bearing
•Hammer Strut Pin (except P239 which is integral)
•Hammer Reset Spring
•DA/SA Grips with Decocking Lever cutout
Overheard at an actual match:
"Tapers! Come on, guys, we need tapers!"
"No, my name's Gonzales."
parts to convert from DAK to DA/SA are available and easily done.
But the convert from 9 to 357 is a no go. You would need a new slide, plus you would need to screw around with some kind of mag fix as the frame for the 9 wont accept a 40/357 mag.
If you want a 357 in DA/SA, just sell the 9mm. By the time you were done sourcing parts, it would be cheaper to buy the correct gun. Its not an uncommon gun to find used.
Sig, Colt M-16/M-4/1911 and Glock Armorer.
I love my P229, but if I had to go to a war, I would take my Glock with me...
