Brain Fog on replacing lower

Hi - I'm having brain fog today about my G27. Over the years I've dremeled my 27's frame into a piece of crap. Now I want to buy a new lower and leave it alone. I don't remember if a 27 and 26 is the same lower frame? I have found several 26 lowers but don't know if my 27 upper will work on the 26 - or do I need a specific 27 frame. Many thanks, jw38

See http://www.glockmeister.com/GLOCK-Em...ctinfo/FRAME4/ . Frame is the same, but if you buy complete G26 lower, remember that the ejector is different for 9mm vs .40.

I probably shouldn't but I can't help myself.

I wonder just how different the ejectors are - after all the .40 case is less than a millimeter wider than the 9x19 case.

Thanks for the help fellows. I've got an opportunity to buy a new "take off" complete G26 frame for $175. Think I'll buy it and replace my over dremeled 27 frame. Thanks for the heads up about the ejector - I'll put in the 27 unit. jw38

Straight (40) vs bent (9) ejector. The use of the 9 ejector on the 40 cartridge places the ejector contact point very close to the primer.

No problem using the 40 ejector for both.

You'd think that Glock would make one semi-bent that would work with both 9mm and .40.
