Can I turn my G37 into a G17?

I think to do this I need a complete G17 upper (slide and barrel) and a G17 trigger bar and trigger housing (trigger housing has 9mm ejector).

Can an expert confirm? :dunno:

I can not wait till tomorrow to call GM or LW.

Yes you can.
Yep, you are correct

Upon examining the G37 firing pin, it says .40 on the end. That is the correct pin for a .40, .45, .45GAP, and .357 sig.

Should I also replace that firing pin with the 9mm version? I wonder if the current firing pin would strike the primer too deep.

Thanks JR!

Yep, the 37 is going to use a 40 firing pin
If you want to change your G37 into a 9mm you are going to need a complete top end. If you have a complete 9mm top end you don’t need to change the striker.
