Can I convert a .40 Brigadier to a 9mm??

Sure.

I've put a 9mm barrel in a .40 brig and it worked flawlessly (9mm mags).

Extractors are different too, but my .40 brig worked just fine with just a 9mm barrel and 9mm mags.

Just to be clear, it needs to be a conversion barrel. Don’t put a standard 9mm barrel in your .40 S&W.

Why not? For the Beretta's, you don't need a conversion barrel, a 9mm barrel works in the .40 slide just fine.

That’s was my understanding. I’ll stand corrected and then be interested in a 9mm barrel for my Brigadier Elite II. Hmmmmm.

Thank you everyone. How hard is it to change barrels and where might I find one?

Beretta USA, GB, Ebay, just about anywhere.

No different than removing a barrel when you clean it, and putting in the 9mm one vs the .40. If you want to change the ejector, that's a bit more in depth, but I'd shoot it with the 9mm barrel first, see how she does, before working about swapping the ejector.
