If I buy a Glock, it will be a G22(I like full size pistols). It is my understanding that you can buy caliber conversion barrels for Glocks, and you can go down in size, but not up. So for a .40s&w G22 I can buy a .357sig barrel and 9mm barrel. I found out conversion barrels are not availible for the following models:17,17L,19,20,21,24,26,34,36,37,38,&39.
Will these conversion barrels also work in the Compensated models?

yes. you will have to get a ported conversion barrel for a conpensated model, if you want it to function as conpensated. if you use a non ported barrel, it will shoot like a regular non-compensated glock. on your g22... you will be able to use the same mag to shoot both .40 and .357 sig. you will need to use a g17 mag if you get a 9mm barrel for your g22.
secondly, not sure where you got your info... but i own a 10mm conversion barrel for a g21. I also know that you can get a 40 super or 400 corbon barrel or a g21. you can also buy .22 LR conversion barrels for g17, g19, g24 etc..., .357 sig for g24 etc...
see website...

there are also many more websites with other glock frame conversions.

Here is the website where I got that incorrect info:

Also, can you buy .22lr conversions for the G22?

g22 conversion

the website you were lookin just sells barrels made by federal. Federal doesn't make conversion barrels for the models that you listed... but other manufacturers do.
Yes you can get a .22 LR conversion kit for a g22. they are a little more pricey cause they come with a new mag, slide, and barrel. just search g22 .22lr conversion kit. there are a couple made by advantage arms on the website I listed above for around $250. They have a LE (tactical) version, and a target version. like I said... the .22LR conversion kit costs more than most conversion barrels cause you need the slide too.

Yeah

But for that price, I think I would just buy a .22lr pistol such as the Walther P22.

expensive conversion

I know what you mean... its still kind of cool to have a glock that shoots .40, .357sig, 9mm, and .22lr though. you can get most conversion barrels for around $100 and a mag for $15-$20.
