Noob barrel interchange question

I recently acquired a Generation 4 Glock 17 and Generation 4 Glock 27.

I have heard of the Glock 27 being convertible to 9mm parabellum with an exchange of certain hard parts.

Question for those in the know: can I put the Glock 17 barrel and magazine into the Glock 27 frame/slide?

Please forgive the question if it's obvious but salesperson did not know for sure.

I'm a wheel gun guy so am ignorant for a short spell while I educate myself.

Thanks, Ryan

I would not use your oem 17 barrel in your 27. Conversion barrels from Lonewolf work very well though.

It won't work because the the G17 barrel is a different diameter than the G27. Conversion barrels have thicker walls to make up for this difference. Also, I believe the barrel lug would be in the wrong place.
