Yes, I use the G23 Lone Wolf conversion barrel with G17 magazines (Glocks don't use clips) quite often in my G23 and G27. The brass has a tendency to fly straight back at times but is not a problem.

i'd also spend the $10 on a new trigger mech housing with ejector for 9mm. That'll keep the brass from going straight back.

Of all the barrels out there, I highly recommend KKM.
The quality and finish is noticeable.

KKM uses button rifling, LW and Storm Lake are broach cut.

A little more expensive, but when you hold it in your hand, that extra $50 or so won't mean much.

I would not trust any converted Glock as an EDC weapon. Range use only.

I've got a G-23, two G-22's and a G-35 with Lone Wolf 40-9mm conversion barrels. The only one's that have been shot are the G-35 and G-22's and they have all run well. Like ohsnapzombies mentioned, the ejector is the only other part one could change. I haven't yet, but I may just order the 4 ejectors and switch them out too.

Glock 22 with 9mm conversion ... no problem -- actually, the 40 mags will work with the 9mm!! No extraction problems here and I shoot it a good bit .... got a 17 that just sits in the safe. Take the 22 to the range along with the 9mm barrel and shoot both 40 and 9mm out of the one pistol ....

The only difference in the .40 and 9mm magazine is the follower, that the first rounded loaded into the magazine rests on, the 9mm is slightly different than the follower for the .40. 9mm's can be shot out of the .40 follower, but the reliability isn't 100%, which isn't an issue for training, but for competition, reliability is paramount.
