    I know you can convert a .45 glock to a 10mm, but can you go the other way?

    No, the breechface on a 10mm is not wide enough to work for the .45.

    Now it makes sense. I should have thought of that.

    Thanks!

    Your welcome. It works the other way simply because that while the 45 is a bigger breech face, The barrel, when locked into place, centers the case in the proper place. I am still not so sure how the extraction would work without changing extractors.

    It is just a hair off-set chamber.
