I am about a week away from ordering a Tactical 5.0 in .40cal. I was wondering if there is a way to also shoot 9mm. Could I get a new comlpete upper or can I just get a replacement barrel.

Can this even be done?

If I was able to shoot both .40 and 9mm, my daughter and I could shoot the same pistol.

Thanks for any help.

The breechface is different for 9mm and .40. Bob will have to chime in for specifics about that. The extractor's different, too.

Do you reload? If so, just download some .40 rounds to a lower velocity. It will solve your immediate problem plus you'll gradually be able to work up to full power loads as she develops the necessary skills to handle full power ammo.
