I'd be excited if they offered a .357 SIG barrel for it

Why buy a special match grade barrel for a Shield? They aren't meant to be match grade pistols and will never compete with a longer barrel pistol.

True Precision is also making barrels for the Shield (including threaded and 40-9 barrels). Saw them on instagram.

Thanks. We have 9mm Threaded/Dimpled, 9mm dimpled/non-threaded, and purpose built 40-9 conversion barrels in stock (not just a loose 9mm barrel thrown into a .40).

Yeah not sure why anyone would put a match grade barrel in a shield? Seems to be a waste of money unless it's just about the bling factor which is the only thing I can come up with. Wouldn't put a can on a shield either but to each there own I guess...

I can understand the reasoning for some people. We've seen it appeal to those who not only want a barrel that noticeably outshoots the factory, but looks good doing it.

I ask the same thing every time I see one of these threads. They try to turn a shield into a $5000 bullseye 1911. It is like the kids who put a loud muffler, $4000 tires/rims, and a $3000 stereo on a 1995 Honda. Makes me laugh.

Well, a 9mm conversion barrel for a .40 Shield is something folks have asked for for a while. Now, if it costs nearly as much as another pistol, it's usefulness would be questionable.

Indeed....put a $229.00 barrel in a $390.00 Shield to defend yourself inside a range of 5 to 20 yards......

Ok, I looked and .40 to 9mm conversion barrel is $209. And that's probably a very fair price considering what goes into making a barrel. I haven't checked the market in used Shields, but new ones can be had for around $330. Probably you can find a used one in good shape for $300 or less. You can probably figure where this is leading. You need a 9mm magazine or two to go with the barrel. I know some say that you can use the .40 mag, any maybe so for RANGE duty. But not for carry, at least
I wouldn't. Add another $60-70 or so. I have a .40 Shield that I'd like to have a conversation barrel for. However, I doubt I'll be a customer for one of these.

Well one reason a person might use a suppressor on a shield would be for practice in a noise intolerant neighborhood. ie, in my neighborhood, I can pop off a few rounds unsuppressed and all is well. But, if I want to fire off multiple magazines, the neighbors get antsy. I can suppress my guns and the noise hardly ruffles any feathers.

Before I get any comments about shooting in the burbs, note that I've had a safe range on my 5 acres for 30 years. My next door neighbor works nights, so out of courtesy to him I only shoot suppressed.

My Mom is in her early 70's. She has small hands and cannot handle anything larger than a Shield 9mm but she could not rack it and had a little difficulty with the muzzle flip. A slide plate mounted racker solved problem number one and a threaded barrel with an add on comp will solve problem number two. Just because you don't see the need for it does not mean a need does not exist. I don't see a need for the .40 S&W or the color purple, but that's just me.
