.45 to 10mm

Not many answers for you, sorry to say, but here is one thing I routinely do. I bought a 10mm Glock barrel, for a tactical model, do not remember model number, but can find out, if you need it; the barrel is about 3/4 inch longer than my M-21 barrel, but fits the slide perfect, so when I want to shoot 10mm Auto, I pop the 10mm barrel into my M-21 (.45ACP), and use a 10mm mag, shoots just fine! Recoil springs are identical in M-20 and 21, so no problem there. At first I used the .45ACP mag, but it needed feed lips closer together, and fed poorly.

I have been sorely criticized for telling this "conversion" on another forum, an expert felt the process was unsafe. So, if you do anything "foolishly experimental", like I do, be forewarned. On the other hand, I enjoy putzing around with the unusual and novel, and that has not killed me yet, so..........

YOu can do a trigger job, you can add grip tape, change the sights, add a guide rod, and change the barrel. The barrel has to be stock demensions and you cant put a 9mm barrel in a 22 and be legal. Also you can add more than 2 oz of weight to it.

That's interesting.

I've never heard anyone be critical of the Glock conversions. Most people talk about them like the gun was designed that way on purpose - .45 to 10 and vice versa, and 9mm to .40 and vice versa. Usually when you read on a thread somewhere about someone fixing to buy a Glock you'll get at least one responder telling them how easy it is to get the extra barrel and mags to make it a two caliber gun.

Some people......

OF course these so called "experts" feel it is unsafe. If you could buy a 150-200 dollar barrel and extra mags or another 500-700 dollar Glock, what would you do? Convert it! Glock "glock experts" just want you to support glock. I already do I have 4 glocks and Im about to buy 3 more. Yet Im getting alot of conversions as well.
