Smile Kimber Target ll conversion from 10mm to 40 s&w

I just bought a Nowlin 40 s&w barrel for my new Kimber 10mm SS as I have plenty of 40 s&w brass on hand and 10 mm brass is expensive. The barrel and bushing, that came with it, dropped right in and shot to the same sight setting. I am really happy with the gun and new conversion barrel. I feel like I got another Kimber for $249. That is cheaper than a 22 lr conversion kit.

Do you need different magazines or do you use the 10 mm magazines? I have an Eclipse 10 mm myself that may something I might consider doing down the road. For me shooting a forty caliber just would not be the same fun as a 10 mm. I reload also and I do have quite a bit of forty brass. I did get lucky and found a Kimber .22 LR conversion in like new condition for 200.00 no tax.

Tom, I ordered 3 magazines with the barrel, they work well. I haven't tried the 10 mm mags with 40's yet. Chuck43, I will do that, thanks for the welcome.
