P226 barrels

Does anyone know if 226 barrels are interchangable? My brother-in-law and I were cleaning ours and I accidentally put his barrel in the slide and it didn't fit. I would have assumed that it wouldn't have mattered.

A .40 barrel normally will not fit into a 9 mm slide. Older pistols may not accept the newer barrels even in the same caliber.

They were both 9mms. I thought it was strange. Oh, well.

What were the years of production for the two guns?

Sorry if I’m stating the obvious, but SIG has used two different slide styles over the last few years. I believe the older slides were folded steel while the newer ones are milled stainless steel. I suppose if you had one of each there might be enough difference that the barrels would not fit, but really just speculating.
