    Question Question; can I use the g26 barrel in the g27

    A little help please concerning converting my G27 gen4. Can i just use the 9mm barrel from the G26 gen4, or do I need a special conversion barrel?

    You do need an aftermarket conversion barrel to go from .40 to 9mm in a Glock.

    Lone Wolf, KKM and StormLake all make conversion barrels for Glocks.

    Just do a search for conversion barrels. There are a few posters here that have done it, I haven't yet.

    You cannot just drop a 26 barrel into a 27 slide because the slide is wider for the 27 than it is for the 26. That said, conversion barrels are available. I am partial to KKM ones myself.

    Slides are identical, except for the diameter of the hole for the barrel. Barrel will drop right in, but will rattle around a little.

    You are correct that the slide width is the same and I was not accurate. What I should have said is that the barrel hood is wider for the 27 slide than it is for the 26 one. The point is that it will not work properly and a conversion barrel is required.
