    could any subcompact glock frame, 26, 27, or 33, be converted to a glock 39 by installing a fully assembled g39 slide, or are there other things to consider?

    For starters one would need:

    1. trigger housing w/ejector
    2. G39 magazines
    3. Possibly a G37/38/39 slide stop lever

    The only thing you'd have to do is install the correct ejector.

    The Gen3 sub-compacts use a different trigger bar but it should work for .45GAP. The Gen4 sub-compacts use the same trigger bar that the .45GAP models use.
