Default Interchangeable Glocks



Advertise Here

These days with all the government hanging around having more than one gun can be a huge headache.I found a way around that I brought a glock 17.
After that I went on line and found a slide for a glock 22(or 31) on Ebay.
Then went on line and brought barrels for .40 caliber(glock 22) and .357sig caliber(glock 31). Finally I brought a mag for either caliber(interchangable) and what did I get three different guns all in one and for alot less money than buying them all separately and alot less hassles from the govt.

P.S. You can also buy a 22L conversion that will give you four calibers for about the price of two regular glocks. Any questions?

That is a pretty good idea.

You might check with someome.
According to 2 Glock armorers, I know, when I was going to do the same thing w/a G 17, they said to do it the otherway around.
Get the .357 Sig (Lot higher pressure then the 9MM and some higher then the .40) and do the conversion that way if you are going to shoot a lot.
I did and it works real well.
PS. Still got a G17, also and it shoots and funtions outstanding.

(IMO) it would still be better to have the different glocks (calibers) than to rely on only one lower, if that breaks------SOL.
Interchangeability is nice depending on the situation, but since all fire from the same platform, you would not have to get used to a new pistol each time.

I would have to agree with both Ammo and Kev82Abn. The 357 I believe is built a bit different to handle the higher pressures of the round. I'd also have two guns, both up to working standard in case one breaks.

Hate to break it to ya, but that is not going to work on your Glock 17 frame. It may be functional but the frames of the 17 and the 22 are different. You will have a cracked frame in no time. The frames of the Glock 22 and Glock 31 have minor differences to handle the higher pressures.

Edit.. Also a .357 sig barrel will not work with a Glock 22 slide. I call BS on this post

That will not work because the ejectors are different.
The best way to go is to get a G31 or 32 and buy a spare .40S&W barrel

I have a G22 with a factory drop-in .357 barrel - it is a common swap

Arrow 2 for 1

I recommend going the other way.

I started with a Glock 23 in .40SW.

I purchased a Lone Wolf 40-9 9mm conversion barrel to shoot 9mm Luger.

Then I bought a couple of 9mm 15-round G19 mags.

Now one gun can be barrel- and mag-swapped in seconds with no tools to fire two different calibers -- pretty sweet in a SHTF situation where you're scrounging for ammo.

The converted 23 feeds and ejects 9mm perfectly, although if I we going to leave it converted to 9mm for the long term, I'd crack open the slide and swap in a G19 extractor.

The frame and slide reinforcements in .40SW and 10mm models of Glock pistol are sufficient to support conversion to 9mm, but conversion of 9mm models to larger calibers is usually not recommended.

From what I know the larger 40 or 357 barrels will not fit in a 9mm slide, but does work the other way around. Same with the base of the round, a 9mm will fit in a slide made for a 40, but a 40 will not fit in a 9mm slide face.

As others have said, there is no need for all the different slides. Buy a G22 or G23 and then just buy the conversion barrels. I have the 40 to 9mm Lone Wolf conversion barrel and it works without a hitch. I do use G17 mags but we already had those as my wife prefers them in her G19. I have heard and read where people state the extractor on the G22 will not extract 9mm, that's a bunch of Crap, mine extracts and throws them with authority.

While I like anything Glock...


You prolly spent at least enough to buy two separate Glocks, but still just have one.

(I can't be that hard on ya though since I drop about $200 in upgrades onto each of my Glocks )
