    Question? I have a 96 Brigadier 40 S&W, just wondering if anyone knows if you can get a kit to change it to a 9mm, like just a barrel and reciever or not

    I think you can just get a slide, barrel, recoil spring and locking lug from a 92FS. You'd need a 9mm magazine of course too but I don't know if you would need a new ejector. You should be able to pick up the slide, barrel, spring, and lug as M9 parts.

    You have to swap the complete upper, no option to just change the barrel.
    Your mags will work.

    There aren't any off the shelf kits, but if you check berettaforum.net's classifieds, someone is always selling a 92 upper.

    You will have to buy 9mm magazines as well...

    I talked to a fella from whole sale sports and his response was there is no off the shelf kit going to a 9mm but there is one going to a 22LR off the shelf, he was not sure about piecing it together from a 92 model.

    I disagree about the mags working. Any of the 40 cal and 357sig mags will work together but not with 9mm. Same with the glocks, you have to buy the 9mm mags.

    Its a lot cheaper to sell the gun and buy a new 9mm if thats what you want.

    My XD40 mags work with 9mm, it just barely holds the rounds but it does feed. It is sloppy enough I wouldn't trust it for self defense, but works for plinking.

    That's correct. You can use 40 mags for 9mm, perfectly fine for plinking.
