    I sifted through the threads on this and would, at your convenience, like confirmation and/or correction.

    Model 27 Stock

    To convert to 9mm, order a LWD 279N and a couple of Glock 26 magazines and be wary of WWB lightweight rounds. Possibly need a lighter spring unless running +P for "alignment".

    To convert to 357 Sig, order a stock Glock G33 barrel or a LWD 33357N barrel and a couple of Glock 33 magazines. No spring change needed.

    The above assumes the G27 and G33 springs are the same. If not, just plug in a stock spring for a G33?

    Thanks for your time and expertise.

    You are correct on all points.

    1: Convert your G27 by installing a LWD-279 barrel and using a G26 mag.
    2: Yes some 115 gr ammo will fail to eject because it is weak. It is very, very rare in a G27 but still could happen. This issue never happens when using 124 or 147 loads. You can shoot +P or +P+ loads out of our barrels.
    3: You can drop in a factory G33-357 barrel or LWD, either one runs great. You can use a G27 mag however we recommend you use the correct G33 mag to help avoid shooting the wrong ammo out of the wrong barrel.... And guarantee reliable feeding.
    4: All the recoil springs are the same, G26, G27 & G33.
