    Can I turn my G37 into a G17?

    I think to do this I need a complete G17 upper (slide and barrel) and a G17 trigger bar and trigger housing (trigger housing has 9mm ejector).

    Can an expert confirm? :dunno:

    I can not wait till tomorrow to call GM or LW.

    Upon examining the G37 firing pin, it says .40 on the end. That is the correct pin for a .40, .45, .45GAP, and .357 sig.

    Should I also replace that firing pin with the 9mm version? I wonder if the current firing pin would strike the primer too deep.

    Thanks JR!

    Yep, the 37 is going to use a 40 firing pin
    If you want to change your G37 into a 9mm you are going to need a complete top end. If you have a complete 9mm top end you don’t need to change the striker.
