I can get a like-new OEM Gen4 Glock17 barrel for under $75. I have a Gen3 Glock 22 and a “boat load” of Glock 17 mags. I’d like to convert the Gen3 Glock 22 to shoot 9mm Luger. Will the Gen4 barrel work without buying a Gen4 captured recoil rod/spring ..... or at all?

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed;
if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may
come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

No, it won’t work. The OD of the 9mm barrel isn’t large enough.

Always make certain to order a CONVERSION BARREL. I did this from 45-10mm and 40S&W-9mm.
