Glock 27 questions

I have a new Glock 27. If I want to purchase a 357 Sig barrel I understand it is just a drop on? Is the 27 frame and 33 frame equal in strength? Meaning I will not damage the 27 with additional pressures of the 357 Sig. I know I would have to get Glock 26 mags to shoot 9mm with 9mm barrel. But I have heard that the 27 and 33 mags are slightly different. I have used .40 mags in Sig 229 and in Glock 23 with 357 Sig barrels and never had a failure of any kind. If I wanted to "bet my life" on it, would you say to use 33 mags in the 27 when shooting 357 Sig, or would you say safe to use the 27 mags for 357 sig. Any additional concerns or comments this brings up, discussion would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Ed

Yes the 357 barrel is a drop in conversion for the G27 pistol.
The 26/27/33 frames are all the same. None are stronger than the other.
If you use the LWD 27-9 conversion barrel: Yes we highly recommend you use a 26 magazine for reliable feeding.
Our policy of ALWAYS using the correct magazine will help you avoid accidentally shooting the wrong ammo out of a conversion barrel. Its cheap insurance, take advantage of it.
