    Is it possible to convet a Glock 28 (.380) into a Glock 26 (9mm)?

    Thanks.

    I've never seen a G28 but, I think it would depend on which cartridge they actually cut the breech face for, the .380 rim is a bit smaller than the 9mm rim.

    Take a 9mm case and see if it will slide up the breech face under the extractor. If it does, I'd expect that the conversion could be done with a 9mm barrel and magazine.

    Let us know if it works!

    Since the G28 is a blowback action instead of a locked breech action, the locking lug, barrel hood and barrel hood cut-out on the slide may be different. I urge caution. It might be best to replace the G28 upper with a G26 upper.

    Blow back to lock-breech is apples and oranges.
    I think danny may have the solution.
    I base this on the G31 to AA Kit conversion I have.
    Same frame is used; upper is changed.

    P.S. Is 9mm legal in your country?

    Found these great pics on the Glock Faq. Due to the lockup shoulder of the slide being beveled, I don't believe it would be safe to simply put a 9mm barrel in your G28.
