    Can a g33 be converted to a g27?

    I want a glock in both 357 sig and 40 s&w and well, 9mm too for that matter! Can the g33 357 sig use conversion barrels to turn it into a g27 40?

    Yes. Conversion barrel to go to 9mm, but I believe the 357 to 40 can be done with an oem if you choose to.

    However, remember that Glock's reproduce like rabbits. If you buy one you'll end up owning more - then what'll you do with the extra barrels?

    Well, they're both interchangable. Switching from a 357 Sig to 40 works better because the magazine follower in the 357 works with both rounds, but the 40 magazine follower isn't so good with 357.
    Something about the angle for the top of the follower. If you just get 357 magazines and use them for both it should be fine.
    I, personally, wouldn't depend on a conversion for self-defense, but if you just want to shoot at the range or plink it would be fine.

    IMHO, the G33 and the G27 are a bit small for those missles. I have a G22 which I got a .357 barrel for. A 9mm barrel for your 27 and your set. Around $200 but for two more guns, it can't be beat.

    But is it $200? Did the 200 include new magazines as well or are the barrels 200?

    Mag issue

    The barrels will cost you $200. For the G22 you can use .357 rounds. I'm almost positive you can use 9mm in the same .40 mag and use an X-Grip mag extender to take up the gap. I know I am right about the first part. The 9mm , .357 and .40 are so close in size that I bet it would work. Even if you had buy a couple of after-market mags for the 9mmit's still way, way cheaper than two guns!

    You did bring up a good point however and I do this with a lot of my guns, as long as you have the right barrel. I have Ruger Blackhawk that comes with two wheels - .357 magnum and 9mm. The pipe is close enough to take both.

    Thanks for the thought. Dave Glock
