Caliber Conversion
« on: January 20, 2015, 07:51:25 AM »
I would like to convert my Glock 27 (.40cal) to a 9mm. Doing this I would change to a Lone Wolf conversion (40 to 9) Barrel, Change the Extractor and Ejector to the model Glock 26 (9mm) and use the Glock magazines for a Glock 26 9mm.

Do you see any legal complications by doing this if, God forbid, I had to use my firearm for self defense?

I am 73 and do not want to spend any more money on firearms and therefore do not want to purchase a Glock 26.

Your response is appreciated.

Regards,
John

You couldn't sell your "27" and buy a "26" ??

jmsfmtex ,

This is a very common modification, and there are no legal consequences to it. There is always the possibility that a prosecutor could argue that the modification was somehow proof of your intent to harm someone, but this is pretty far-fetched. If a prosecutor did try to make this argument, a good defense attorney could easily combat it.

Thank you for your question.
