Well, not yet but I spoke to Kevin over at KKM and if we can a 50 or more piece order together, he will make a .40 to 9mm match barrel for us .40 caliber HK P2000 owners.

I know I want one and I've seen others ask too. I have the 40 to 9mm Match barrel from KKM for my GLOCK 23 and it functions flawless.

I don't have prices yet but I assume it would be on par with there other 40 to 9mm barrels.

Would anyone be interested in one? Would anyone be interested to help spread the word?

Which model gun do you have? The 9mm?

I'm more interested in making my .40 into a 9mm for target shooting but being able to carry it with .40 cal rounds in it.

Anyway, I got a price from KKM. If we can get 50 people to pre-order them, they will cost $157.00 each for a .40 to 9mm conversion barrel.

I'm a new HK P2000 owner and I want to make sure I understand this. I can buy a new barrel in 9mm and 9mm mags and convert my p2000 to a 9mm? Same recoil spring? Is it that easy?

No actually its not that easy, or more shooters would do it. Breech face dimensions are alot different between the two calibers, dropping a 9mm barrel into a .40sw slide is asking for trouble, plus the case rim dimensions are different too, so the extractor is going to take a beating and/or not eject spent casings properly, if a catastrophic failure does not happen first.

Safest way is to also mate a 9mm slide to the 9mm barrel. These are real firearms, not toys. 9mm +P+ runs at 38,500 pounds per square inch, thats a whole lot of pressure to not be held properly in place by a mis-matched breech face/slide.

I dont want to be any where close to this pistol when its fired, 38,500 pounds per square inch is plenty to blow off fingers, eyes, dis-figure a human face. Huge risk for the $3 a box difference between a box of .40sw and a box of 9mm ammo! :5:

A safe conversion would be to get a.357Sig barrel for the .40sw P2000, its alot more fun, and its safe!!!

Well said, I knew I couldn't have been the only one thinking this....

EFKFiredragon.com Offers several conversion caliber barrels and extended, threaded and ported barrels as well.
I had a one for my USPF, it was absolute junk, constant jamming issues. I polished the feedramp and still no good. I tried to get them to fix or replace it and they said I had voided the warranty by polishing the ramp, and they added the warranty only covers breakage-not function problems because they can't be sure it's the not firearm and the barrel is fine. :mad:

The only aftermarket barrels I use are jarvis custom. They have worked flawlessly for me, and they stand behind their products from all accounts I've heard.

+1 for Jarvis Custom. Their quality is unrivaled, IMHO.
