Can the G17 be made to function safely with just a barrel and magazine swap? Or, would this need a slide (top end) swap as well?
More likely scenario- the poster might have been referring to a G22.
Thanks in advance!
No, a 357 sig barrel won't fit in a 9mm slide. Bigger diameter. Breach face on the 9mm is too narrow also. A top end swap would be necessary. I'd probably change out the 9mm ejector for a 40 cal also. You can put a 357 sig barrel in a 40 cal Glock.
