I've searched several times over and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Has anyone attempted swapping a pt138(.380) barrel and a pt111(9mm) barrel.

IF you are going to swap out the .380 Barrel for a 9mm Barrel, you should also swap out the .380 Recoil Spring Assembly for a 9mm Recoil Spring assembly, lest frame battering occur.

Being that the 9mm Cartridge has a bigger case head and is longer, I rather doubt this will work.
You would do better to trade off the PT138 for a PT111, if that is what you truly want.
As PT138's tend to be much scarcer than PT111's, there is a ready market for them amongst .380 Pistol aficionados.

I was just wondering if it was doable. I know some pistols share frames and just the barrel, springs, and magazine are different. I do appreciate the responses though.
