Storm Lake Conversion Barrel

I decided recently to try a Storm Lake Conversion 9mm barrel in my M&P40. $160 from Midway. I already have a handful of full size 9mm magazines for my 9c; I just removed the grip adaptors to test the barrel.

Yesterday my old buddies and I got together for our annual shootout and bonfire, so I brought the converted M&P along.

200 rounds downrange, on target, with no failures to feed or extract. All I did was swap the barrel and magazines; the recoil spring was the stock .40 S&W spring.

A few more 9mm mags are on the way, and I now have a 9mm full size option in my M&P stable for less than the cost of a case of ammo.

    Sounds like all worked out well for you with minimal cost. I would have guessed that a spring swap was required also.

    That surprised me too, but it ran perfectly.

    Not tried Storm Lake, but have heard good things.

    Ive been pleased with all of my Lone Wolf barrels.

    Wonder if they have one to fit my RIA .45 ?
