Conversion Kits for G37, G38, G39?

Is it technically possible to quickly convert the .45 GAP models to 9 mm? What would have to be involved (obviously besides changing the barrel).

There are various conversion barrels for Glocks:

Unfortunately, nothing for the G39 (which I am considering to buy).

Yeah, I think you would have to get a complete 9mm upper. They are available and show up in the classifieds here fairly often.

Learning from my mistakes since 1974

Yep thats it a complete upper, some would say you need to replace the ejector as the 19 and 38 (for example) have different angles and shapes.

However, I have read of some just putting an upper and the gun functioned flawlessly.

Editing for my 2000th post and a member since 2000 - guess I don't have much to say!
