Have: Gen 1 Glock 35 in .40 cal.

Want: to drop it down to 9mm so my wife and daughters can handle it a little bit better.

"Just buy a Glock 19" I'd love to, but to do that I have to go through the permit process, which is time consuming and expensive in this state. I'm happy with my G35, I'd just like it to shoot something smaller.

From my research, I found several posts stating that all that's required is a G19 barrel and magazine. Is that really all it takes? Seems like there would be more to it.

There is a specific barrel for the conversion. But yeah many people have just dropped in a barrel and changed the magazine. The 40s&w mags will hold and feed 9mm. I wouldn't use it for carry or competitve shooting, but for range plinking they work fine.

The lone wolf barrels are good to go, but generally require a slight bit of fitting for proper lock up at the breach face. If you decide to go this route let me know and I'll walk you through it.

Thank you. Looks a lot cheaper than I thought too.
