    Default m&p barrel

    I'm thinking of getting a 9mm barrel and mags and or a 357 sig barrel for my m&p 40 so i can shoot three different calibers out of it... anyone know where i can get one cheap that is of good quality? I'm thinking 357 sig, but not sure what that round would do differently thant the 40 Smith and wesson... i'm thinking the 9mm barrel and magazines for when my sister goes shooting with me because the 40 is a little too much for her and she likes to shoot my gf's m&p9c... also 9mm ammo is a little bit cheaper than 40 cal.

    it'd be really cool if i could find a 22 conversion kit for it like how glocks have.


    i did find this...

    smith and wessom 9mm conversion barrel


    does the regular m&p barrel work?

    i found the original 9mm barrel cheaper

    be careful of aftermarket barrels with tighter chambers, especially on a conversion. I am unaware of how the barrel fits into the slide, so that may be a concern. If you measure the OD of your .40 barrel, I can measure the 9mm OD.

    od? yeah i'm not sure how the whole conversion thing works... the first link has good reviews... also they sell them at midwayusa and they have good reviews there too. looks like the company that makes them aftermarket ones is reputable

    Heard good things about Storm Lake:

    A lot of M&P owners use their threaded barrels.

    they produce a dedicated conversion barrel, which I would view to be the only option (now knowing this)

    yeah and im debating on paying the extra 15 bucks for ported barrel... i mean does it really reduce the recoil that much?

    i saw the same brand cheaper on the other site i linked on this thread

    i would say no ports, in lower light, muzzle blast is directed up and it flashes more, at least on the compensated glocks I used.
