Hard to believe that three barrels will work with one slide, and three different magazines will reliably feed through one magazine well, but I guess they do. CZ is a great gunmaker. I'm sure they would't try this unless it works.

Even so, what about wear over time? Say you shoot mostly 9mm and develop normal wear on the slide lugs. Then, you pop in a .357 barrel that has much less wear due to lack of use. How does that work?

Very nice!  But pricey!  all it needs is a Kadet kit. :D

I’ve found a SP01 9mm barrel that fit my 40 SW slide and frame nicely (not all do).   40’s and 357 sig will feed fine from the 9mm magazines, just with less capacity. And when using full power 9mm, even the factory 40sw springs work reliably.

The czc barrels look nice!  I’d bet moving between them would hold up even better than what I’ve got.

I have wondered about the wearing in, but after only a couple thousand rounds, have seen no sign of additional wear.  I think if starting with barrels that fit nicely, there should be no problem.

I have one of the small pelican cases with the 75B, 40 slide, Kadet slide, 22, 9mm, and 40 barrel.  Makes it nice to essentially have the one gun but be able to shoot the ammo I want/need to.

My SP-01 Tactical came with magazines with .40 witness holes on one side and 9mm witness holes on the other. Works great with a 9mm barrel for a convertible SP-01 uber-Tacticool.

How about 4 calibers and add in a 7.65x21 (.30 Luger) barrel as well?   O0

Doesn't the extractor need to be changed between the 9mm and the 357/40 rims?

It might....I purchased a custom 75B SA from Stuart in .40 with a 9mm barrel conversion.....they included an extra extractor for the 9mm.......apparently sometimes it's needed but may not be.....if I recall correctly, at least part of it may be related to the specific rounds you use. I use this particular pistol exclusively as a.40 for now.

The extractor on an SP-01 .40 works fine with 9mm.
