    Is it possible to convert the Glock 17 to .357 SIG ? How would I go about it, and how expensive would it be.

    First, you need one of the 3-pin frames. Newer 9mm frames are 3-pin, but older ones are 2-pin.

    Next, you need an entire upper. You can't get a conversion barrel to go from 9mm to 357 (or 40s&w), cause the breechface is too small, as is the hole in the end of the slide (where the barrell sticks through).

    You may need to change the ejector (there are varying opinions on this one).

    Different magazines.

    That should do it!
