.400 Corbon.

I have had a love hate relationship with my Glock 21sf for over two years now. After having shot 1911's and CZ75's as my main handgun I bought the Glock to see what all of the fuss was about. The new Slim Frame was a better fit than the Glock 20 so I went with the .45acp. It's been a reliable firearm and I use it for open carry in NM, CO, and UT. I may go back to a CZ (mine was taken by a thief) but I can't get one in 10mm nor does any one make a conversion. I have a CZ40b but I loaned it to a friend and I just don't much care for the S&W 40.

I have always been a fan of the .357M and the 10mm (sold my Tangfolio) and still carry the S&W 65 when backbacking. I am considering purchasing a barrel for the Glock in .400 Corbon as no other changes are necesary; no springs, mags, ejectors, extractors ect. I know that ammo is hard to come by but I reload and Starline makes brass. So..... what's the downside to this conversion (other than I will still have a Glock)?

I think ammo would be the only downfall to be honest I had looked into those and the .460 Rowland conversions for one of my 1911's.

you should look into .45 super as well, .450 SMC is the same as well
if you have a glock 21 , you need only do this as a minimum
22 lb spring

however i read the brass will moon with a stock barrel
so most people get a 6" lone wolf , with a fully supported chamber.
obviously if you reload you would need to do the barrel
some people claim you need stronger mag springs as well, others don't though....
ammo is about the same as JHP +p .45 ACP (defense ammo )
exterior dimension is the same as .45 acp.

79 K5 blazer, 6" lift 38x15" tires d44/12b lockers and chromoly axles ,6.2L GM diesel - Waste Vegetable Oil conversion - cross over steering,14"SAW nitrogen shocks, beefed shackles, shackle flip, winch/ bumpers, diff covers.

Are there conversion barrels for either of those rounds? I did not see them on the lone wolf site.

like i said they are the same as .45 acp
you just buy a .45 acp barrel that is FULLY supported in the chamber.
factory glock is not fully supported on the bottom of the chamber, to assist loading the next bullet. That will half moon the cases, causing the expensive brass to be non reloadable.

basically you just buy a lone wolf 6" barrel for glock 21
then the 22lb spring and non captive guide rod
that's it.

.45 super is about the weak end of 44 mag, unless you are willing to load your own.
Supposedly .45 super can be loaded much , much more stout than ammo is being sold on the market.
230 grainers at 1100 fps is marketed .45 super.
many hand loaders get 1200 fps out of a 45 super (230g) without any signs of overpressure.
I would probably do it if I reloaded....but i don't
