    Hey all, My next purchase will be a G27, along with a 9mm and 357 sig conversion barrels. I love the look and feel of the baby Glock's, as well as the .40 cartridge. Once i heard that you could convert to 9mm AND .357 sig i was 100% sold.

    My only concern is the .357 sig ammo itself. Has anyone had any luck with the Ultramax "remanufactured" ammo that Cabela's sells in bulk? Any suggestions for factory target/self defense loads?

    Time is not really a factor here, I am a substitute teacher and school is out so i have no income until at least September.

    Thanks for any input!

    I have a glock 27 also and I love it, feels great in my hand and you can CC it and not even know its there, all around great gun. I had some concerns about the 40, how do you guys feel about its stopping power, also it is a little more expensive but about the same as 45acp which is my preferred caliber of choice.


    I would also like to know what I need to convert this 27 in to a 9mm range gun, can anyone link me to a site that sells that kit, I understand all I need is a barrel and I can use g26 mags, right?

    my .02

    I would be practicing with the round I would be CC'ing with. I also do would not mess with my carry gun, even if its just a barrel change.


    if its a 9mm you want, go buy/trade for a G26 =)

    All you need for the 9mm conversion is a Lone Wolf barrel. They work great and aren't all that expensive. Drop it right in and your ready to go for the range.

    Congrats on the G27. I don't use the conversion kit because I own all 40sw and 45acp autos. I have used http://georgia-arms.com/bulkquantityammunition-cannedheat-1.aspx canned heat ammo for the past 7 years without a issue.

    Congrats on the G27 . No such thing as stopping power , just good shot placement . I use Hornady 165gr Critical Defense ammo

    I'm also thinking about getting a glock 27. I have been looking on lonewolf, can't find a conversion barrel for .40 to 357 for the glock 27, do you just buy the standard barrel for a glock 33 to convert to .357 sig?

    RFD339-Thank you very much, I'm also going to check into the canned heat ammo, I've been looking for a good range/practice ammo under $300 per 1000. Thanks!

    I own a Gen 2.5 G27.
    Called Glock and was also told this by a service rep.
