Glock 23 Conversion

Has anyone done the 357sig conversion on the Glock 23 and what kit did you use the one I have been looking at is the kit from the company Lonewolf I think any feedback would be helpful

Haven't personally done it but going from 40 to 357 sig is the only conversion that I would trust reliability wise. If your unsure about other brands buy a Glock factory 32 barrel.

06' F250, 6.0L, Xl, 4x4, 3:73 Ls 4" Turbo Back,
12' F150, 4X4, 3:55 E Locker, Xlt, Super Cab, Ecoboost, Sct Tunes
94' Jeep ZJ, 4" Rough Country, 33's, And A Bunch Of Broken Parts.
10' Polaris Sportsman 850 Xp!
03' 6.0L Sold
96' 7.3L Sold

Yea I got it straight from LW. My groups size got cut in half plus I can safely shoot lead in it now. Which is a plus if you are a high volume shooter. Another brand you might look into is EFK who makes some fine barrels.. Also check out their Dual action recoil springs, fallow up shots were alot quicker than my factory setup and recoil "seemed" lighter.

I sure wouldn't be messing with the trigger if this is going to be a gun you plan on carrying. A lawyer would have a field day with that!! Not sure why you want 357sig, can't find any ammo in that cal around my parts.

I think I could argue the side of having trigger mods I would like to see an actual case were a Guy with a full custom pistol was viewed negatively for using that gun to defend him self or family
