    They use the same frame but not the same locking block. G22 have 3 pins and 17 have only 2 pins. But earlier production of 40s have only 2 pins so go figure why they put 3 pins. I have both 17 and 22 and I swapped the frame and barrel and worked both slides and it doesn't seem to have any problem but I wouldn't shoot the 40 using the 17 frame.

    Hope this helps.

    I didn't know that 17 comes with 3 pins now. You might want to check the locking block if it's the same. Check your manual if they are interchangeable. Where are you going to get the slide?

    Dagdagan mo na lang ng konti may bagong Glock ka na.

    A quick call to GLock Smyrna confirms you are right. They have the same locking block and you can shoot the 40 provided you can get an aftermarket slide and barrel.

    Good luck.

    vega,
    i think all 3rd gen framed glocks have 3 pins already....but i'm not sure;f

    sonny,
    if you have a 17 and want to convert it to a 22, you have to buy a conversion barrel from kkm etc. and also change the mag follower to .40, thats all, ang masakit sa bulsa lang ang barrel, $150 maybe, goodluck;f

    I don't think anyone makes conversion from 9mm to 40 S&W.

    Glocks are relatively cheaper now. Get another Glock and you're good to go. Buying parts here and there is just an inconvenience.

    Hey sonny - If you're going to do it make sure you change your ejector too. G22's ejector is shorter and straight compared to G17. There is a chance of AD when removing live ammo from the chamber.

    Mas madali kung bibili ka na lang ng isa pang unit.
