SIG 229 conversion

1966 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  m14nut
I would like to convert my SIG229 49S&W to a 9mm for economical reasons. I know that Barsto sell the conversion barell. My question is: Will the breech face / extractor on the 40 slide function well with the 9mm rounds?
Thanks in advance.

I'm afraid not. The 40 can't be converted to 9mm. It can be converted to .357 Sig by merely buying a replacement barrel either from Sig or BarSto.
had the exact same question...
Look in forums under "converting a 229".
Somebody answered my question, including info on the Bar-sto. Good Luck.
