you can go from 40/357 to 9mm if you by a conversion barrel. Factort 9mm barrels would not work in a 40 cal 229. Barsto makes ans sells the conversion barrels for 200 bucks. Sory that the sales guy misinformed you.

I have an old original Sig P229 .40 S&W (bought in 1993).
Can I replace the old .40 barrel with a new Sig factory .357 SIG barrel?
I know it can be done with new P229's but will the new .357 barrel swap into an older P229?
And if that can be done, will the old 12-rd. Pre-Ban .40 S&W magazines work with .357 SIG ammunition?

You're right you can take a .40 to a 9mm (I have done it twice) but not take a 9mm to a .40.
Here's my Sig P226 X5 that I fitted with a Bar-Sto 9mm barrel
It shoots like a champ.
I know 2 people that have added new .357 barrels to older .40 cal.
Both have not had a problem that I'm aware of.
I would ask a Sig Armorer to be sure.
