A 9mm barrel will not work in the Glock 31. The 9mm case head is too small for the breach face. The case heads are the same for the 357 SIG and the 40 S&W, but not the 9mm. The SIG round is simply a 40 S&W case necked down to a 9mm bullet diameter.
Eric, good choice on the Glock 31. I have one that I really love. For around $100 you can buy a 40 cal barrel and another 100 will get you a 9mm barrel. Three Glocks for around $700, about the same price as one Sig 226 or 229. There are lots of used Glock 22 40cal mags floating around. They are exactly the same as the Glock 31 mags.The 357 Sig is an easy round to reload for.

Well good luck with that. You did not mention having to change out extractors and magazines, which is easy enough to do. There is a reason it does not work at times without changing out the extractor and magazines to ones for the 9mm. Probably a good idea to explain the whole change over process so nobody just changed out the barrel only and then relied on the pistol working as it should without making the other changes. Especially in a dire situation. Just my 2 cents worth.
Gee, I guess I'll have to stop using my 9mm barrel. Only the G31 and G22 mags don't work with the 9mm barrel. Have to use G17 mags with the 9mm barrel. Some conversions to 9mm have extraction issues and require a 9mm extractor to be installed. Some work just fine with the 357 sig/40 cal extractor, some don't. My G31 is a Gen3 model. The Gen4 model may be different.
