    I have a glock 26, and I know you can convert the 27 to 357 sig and 9mm, I was just wondering if you can do that with the 26? Can you convert the 26 to .40 cal and .357 sig? Thanks, I know this question has probably been answered somewhere in here already, I just couldnt find one.

    The frames of the 26/27/33/39 are all the same.
    You can convert a 26 to a 27 by installing a complete top end and switching the trigger housing from 9 to 40. You will also need a 27 magazine.

    I also have a 2nd Gen G22. Is it possible to convert a 2nd Gen G22 to 357 sig? or 9mm? Is it recommended or any problems able to happen by doing this?

    We can convert any Glock 40 or 357 to fire 40/357 or 9mm.
    No problem!
