    Has anyone here tried using the 9mm magazines in a CF-380? How about taking the barrel from a compensated CF 380 and using it on a C9?

    Uh, never mind. I just found my answers. Magazines, yes, barrels, no.

    Got it. I should have realized earlier that the critical difference here is that two millimeter longer case length.

    Don't forget the case head differences.

    It's more than just the 'case is shorter'.

    .380 ACP case dimensions.
    Straight case - no case taper.
    Dia. = .374" head - .373" mouth.
    Head size = .374".
    Case length = .680".

    9mm Luger case dimensions:
    Tapered case.
    Dia. = .391" head - .380" mouth -
    Head size = .394".
    Length = 754".

    the .380 ACP is smaller all the way around.
