G29 with KKM 45ACP conversion barrel

I did'nt know it could be done but here is a video I found proving it. I'd rather use my 29 slide for 45Super than my 36 slide which I have been using. Much heavier so could use 21# springs I use for 10mm instead of the 23# springs with the 36 slide. Worth the $ IMO but I don't see them listed on their site.

EDIT: The video can be cut and pasted from the first review.

I can't get the video to load -

Are you sure he used the 10MM slide?

I just don't see how the end of the .45 ACP case (the primer end) fits into the space on the breech face that is sized for a 10MM cartridge.

That is a do-it-yourself project by Glock Talk member vaquero aleman.

Below is a link jumping into a GT thread where the video is posted. The posts that follow describe the grinding necessary to machine the G29 breech in order to make the 45ACP barrel fit (or 460 Rowland barrel).

That explains it - not something I will be doing - but to each his own.

I looked at my 29 slide and realized he must have hacked something. I would have gone with a 21 slide from LW, dust cover extension and a 4.6" 30 barrel before that myself but that was the less expensive way to do it no doubt! You'd think Glockmeister would have 30 slides for sale since most people want to convert to 10mm but that may just be my experience on the www.

By the time one buys a slide and a barrel how close is that to the cost of a G30?

It's very close. So close, unless you want an extended slide and barrel for a tad mote velocity - not worth it IMO.
