Anyone ever drop a 10mm Barel into a Glock 23? I know the 32 357Sig works. But I have a hankering to do this to a 23.

Sounds very intriguing. Let us know how it works out. I have a second bbl in .357 Sig for my G-27 and it works great, but that's not nearly as powerful as the 10mm. My S&W 1006 has every bit as much recoil as the .45 ACP, only sharper, if that makes any sense.

I have a 1911 chambered in 10mm. I do not understand all the hub-bub about the recoil. Like you said, it is like a 45. No biggy. Guess the FBI was training too many combat accountants, who never handled a gun before,started whining that their carpel tunnel syndrome was getting worse after range sessions. :D

Just teasing Mister or Ms FBI, please do not tap my phone...I was kidding....really....

Ha!Ha! Thats funny! But most likely not to far off the truth. Lots of gals in the FBI and they don't have the muscle mass to absorb 10 mm rounds kicking out of the firearm. Also not necessary in my opinon to have anything that big for the type work that they do.

The FBI has been hiring more females, lawyers, language specialists and computer people over the last 10+ years than actual "cop"-types. I've heard stats about just how many shots the average city, county, or state LEO actually makes in his/her career; I'll bet the FBI average is a small fraction of that. All the more reason to equip them with a caliber that hurts the BG more than the officer, IMO.

But the caliber best be something that the gals can hit the target with and don't close their eyes and duck ever time they light off a round. ;)

as far as the glock numbering system, im not sure what the 23 is, but if its not a .45acp, then no.

the 10mm has the oal of the 45acp, which uses a longer (front to back) magazine than the 357 sig, 40 s+w, 9mm, ect...
