Conversion barrel question

I got a Glock 22. Been thinking about getting a 9mm conversion barrel to play with at times.
My question is for the ones who have or the ones that researched it is which brand is a decent one. I want reliability first but want good accuracy as well.
Thanks for your replies

I've had 2 KKM conversion barrels, both 10mm to 40 for the G-20 and G-29, both gave excellent accuracy.

I have a G23 with a Lone wolf 40-9 conversion barrel. I regularly loan it to students for classes. Using 9mm mags, it has been EXTREMELY reliable with every shooter that has used it.

Im guessing (cause i haven't kept track), but its into the 10k range of ammo shot in training. I cant remember a malfunction that was not shooter induced, nothing i would attribute to the barrel swap.

I’ve used lone wolf and Kkm if they cost the same. I would chose kkm. But kkm is usually more money, so lone wolf is fine.
They both performed well.

I had good luck with KKM and found their customer service to be awesome.

Lonewolf or Stormlake. I wouldn’t invest in a kkm for a conversion barrel personally. They are quality, just not worth it in this caliber/configuration.

Thank you everyone. Will definitely get me a barrel by next week.
I’ve always had 40’s ever since they became. Never owned a 9mm but always wanted one.
