thanks. i'm always open to other peoples input. the other day i was talking to some guys a the gunshop. 1 guy said he had one(9mm barrel) and it worked like a charm. worked smooth as silk. i guess i'll get 1, and if it ends up not working right i'll put it on ebay. i should get most of my $ back.
I just bought a G22 and for grins I tried the barrel from my G17 in it. I see the problem, the barrel is too small and fits loosly in the front of the slide. I have found some companys that make a 9mm barrel for the G22 though.
