    Any 10mm can be converted to 40 S&W by having a new barrel fit and a little tuning by a competent smith. The question is, why would you want to?

    The 10mm OAL works well in the 1911 platform...

    Well said.

    I love the P239 for what it is. Mine is a 9mm that wears Nills and Dawson FO sights, is extremely accurate and shoots well better than a gun its size should.

    I think you'd be better off in this market selling the Glock 19 and just buying a NIB P365XL. They're about $600 most places.

    As a long-time M&P 40 shooter, I've never found recoil particularly snappy or bad, even when we were issuing 155gr Hydra-Shot followed by 155gr HST (the snappiest of the 40 S&W), especially when...

    I can't remember if it was available when we were dealing with these shenanigans.

    We replaced them with EGW and properly staked them and didn't have an issue after that.

    After getting sick tired of replacing plunger tubes on co-workers' Kimbers about a decade ago there is no way I would even consider running a grip that doesn't support that vital little piece.

    It's a single action semi-auto. It's made to be carried with the hammer cocked and the thumb safety engaged. There is no reason to carry it any other way.

    The other factor for me is this:

    I have to carry 36 rounds of ammo on me per policy.

    45 ACP = 8 round magazines
    9 mm = 10 round magazines

    I always carry a 5 shot J-frame as a backup gun. ...
