i already own a glock 21 and i love it and was thinkin about getting a second in 9 mill but a buddie of mine told me that i should get a g22 40 cal because by swaping the locking block and barrel and clip i can also have a 9 and a 357 has anyone else heard this or is my friend just talkin out his butt

The Glock 21 has a larger slide, breach face, and mag well, than both the 40 and 9mm pistols. You can not swap parts between the 45 and any of the smaller calibers. As TruckeeDan explained you can swap out barrels , mags , and extractors on some of the 40, 357 Sig, models with some of the 9mm models and it will work....most of the time.

For the .357 sig you would only need the different barrel to shoot .40. To swap to a 9mm you would need to change the extractor, ejector, barrel, and magazine. The barrel would have to be a .40 to 9mm conversion barrel so that you don't have to also change the locking block. Lone wolf makes barrels in the correct configuration. Hope the info helps.

Barrels on most any gun don't have a serial number, it is on the action.

Really, I guess I have to stand corrected. But I sure don't see why the barrel has a seriel number on it. Doesn't make any sense.

The frame serial # is the part that really matters an aftermarket barrel has no serial number and a factory replacement barrel has a number on it that starts with an L I believe. Factory replacement slides are available too and have a S in front of the new serial number.

From what i was told some people covert the 40 guns to 9 mm so they can use the 4o s&w mags to get around the 10 round limit .A ten round 40 mag will hold 15 9s...............I am starting think all a person needs is a single six 45 colt if can't solve your problems nothing will.

The case diameter of the 9mm and the 40 ca are very different and although you might cram 15 9mms in the 10 round 40 cal mag it will not feed reliably, if at all.357 sig cases, although bottlenecked, have the same base diameter as the 40 cal and the magazines are interchangeable.
