SP2022 Threaded Barrel Options
I've a had SP2022 in .40/357sig for a long time and love shooting it. Mine came as a combo with both barrels and 2 grips. Mainly I use it in 357sig.
I have a suppressor awaiting on the ATF. The suppressor can handle pistol/rifle up to .458socom. I the mean time I'm looking into threaded barrels.
I've been trying to find .40 or 357sig threaded barrels, but I've had zero luck. Each manufacture I've called has said the same thing ... 'There isn't a big enough demand in the SP2022 and Sig already makes a 9mm barrel. We suggest getting the Sig factory threaded barrel and using 9mm'. I'm afraid I may have to use my XDM if I want to shoot .40 or 357sig suppressed. I know they are not subsonic rounds, but it would just be fun to do. Has anyone found a threaded barrel in 357sig or .40 for the SP2022?
I also called Sig and asked about using the SP2022 9mm threaded barrel ( BBL-2022-9-TB ) in my SP2022 originally chambered in .40/357sig. The tech I was speaking with asked if my gun had a load indicator slide, it does not. He said he couldn't officially say that Sig recommends using the barrel in my gun because it would be considered a 'conversion from .40/357sig' and Sig never sold a Sig authorized conversion kit ... After a short pause he did go on to tell me that there was no physical difference between the .40/357sig and the 9mm versions. After another short pause I asked if there was a physical restriction that would prevent the 9mm barrel from being placed in a .40/357sig SP2022. He paused and said he couldn't officially say it wouldn't fit ... I thanked him for his time.
From what I got out of the conversion is Sig never 'officially' sell a conversion from .40/357sig to 9mm. Since there is no official conversion, Sig can't say it will work. The way the tech carried the conversion led me believe it would work, but just not in an official legal capacity.
Optics Planet has the BBL-2022-9-TB (with thread protector) for $206 and I have a $15 coupon code. For about $190 I'm willing to give it a go.
Has anyone used the 9mm threaded barrel in a SP2022 that started life in .40/357sig?
The OD of my .40 and 357sig barrels are the same. The only difference is the ID. Does this hold true for the 9mm barrels?
Would there be an issue with the recoil spring from a .40/357sig being to heavy for a 9mm load or would the added pressure from the suppressor compensate for the difference?
Thanks all ...

In my search for a threaded barrel for my sp2022 in 9mm, I ran across a youtube vid of some guys shooting theirs. They had both models. I'll see if I can't find it, but I think the barrels are interchange. *caveat* they only changed from .40 to nine, not the other way round, and it wasnt recommended that it be done for s/d purposes.
Incidentally, what silencer are you getting?

I think I started watching this vid but never made it to the swapping part.
I'm getting the SilencerCO Hybrid. What sealed the deal for me was a price drop and that it handles 95% of what I have. Sure there are other models that are better by a few DBs here and there, but I don't have the budget to drop on caliber specific suppressors.

The 9mm threaded barrel is in stock at the Sig store.
SIG SAUER 9mm Threaded Barrel, SP2022, Black
If you registered your SP2022 with Sig, you may still have a 20% discount available.
The LCI model barrel should work with a non lci slide. In fact, you'll have the gap as an lci, just like M&Ps. Doesn't work the other way around.
Bear in mind that to fully take advantage of a suppressor, you need to use subsonic ammo. The suppressor takes care of the "bang" but not the (sonic) boom.
A .40 S&W to 9mm by barrel (and magazine) only is pretty common to S&W M&Ps, but is not without controversy.

I popped for the barrel. $184 and change from Optics Planet. It may take a few weeks on the delivery but thats fine with me.
I know the 40/357sig rounds are not subsonic and I'll still get the crack of the bullet breaking the sound barrier. The lower recoil and bang from the gasses will still make a good difference.
On Monday I'm going to call and try to pre-order some parts for my MCX. I'm going ask about the recoil spring then and see if they are still doing the discount with a registration. I'll 20% off on a pre-ordered short barrel

I got my 9mm threaded barrel. It fits just like my 40 or 357sig barrels. There were no issues racking or moving the slide. The barrel did come dry and in a retail pack. Before going to the range I'll have to give it a little oil to make sure things stay loose.
The barrel is not stamped with a '+P'. Does anyone know if you can run +P ammo in it? Keep in mind I still have my stock 40/357sig recoil spring in the gun.

Hi, I have a 2022 .40 cal with the .357 sig barrel and am also looking to add a 9mm threaded barrel. I would really appreciate any information you can provide on whether the 9mm barrel shoots okay. And thanks for posting this information as it is very useful.

Life is so much simpler here in Cali - the state is looking out for us so they outlaw the can/silencer and for good measure they even made the threaded barrel illegal. They just want to make our choices simpler.

My bad ... I thought I updated this.
The 9mm threaded barrel works flawlessly in my SP2022 that started life as a 40/357sig. So far I've put 100 rounds of Federal 9mm ammo through it. The box was red/black and I would call it their standard ammo. I didn't get any miss feeds or ejection failures. The accuracy is spot on. I did NOT have to change my recoil spring and I'm using my stock 40/357sig spring. I'm also using the factory 40/357sig 12 round mags. They hold 15 rounds of 9mm. Overall the only thing I changed was the barrel and I couldn't be happier.
I've also talked to Bar-Sto and they said a lot of people convert down from 40/357sig to 9mm. You can't go the other way because the breach face is different on the guns that started life as 9mm.
As I noted before my slide is NOT a LCI slide. I'm able to use the LCI barrel with no issue. The only difference is a small opening were the barrel locks against the breach face. This is where the LCI would otherwise be. My 2022 started life without the LCI so there is no issuing either a LCI or non-LCI barrel. Again this doesn't work the other way around.

Not sure how bumping old threads goes on this forum but I figured I'd add a data point as this thread is what got me trying the 9mm in my 40 SP2022. I have a non LCI 2022 and I found a 9mm PARA LCI barrel. I've shot 400-500 rounds through it without issue (mainly got the 9mm to intro the gf to firing a pistol).
I still use the 40MAGs as it was just for range use. Only issues were brass being ejected in random directions sometimes, but works just fine otherwise.

greeenteeee in the beginning, I imagine that was their intent, but sometimes it is very difficult to search for a specific complaint, unless you have a lot of time. You know what they say, it's not always the "content", it's how it's stated...
Thanks for sharing...

It's too late to save the OP money, but for future reference, CDNN still has the 9mm threaded barrel on sale for $90
