    I have an early Glock 19 Gen 3 (2pin) that i want to convert to a 40 cal. Is this possible, without doing damage to the frame?

    You will need a new slide, barrel and ejector, so it might be easier to just get a new 23.

    NO. There is a reason they added the third pin. If you have a 3 pin frame you would still need a barrel, slide, magazines ans possibly a new ejector.

    Just buy a g23. If you can't afford it right now, wait. What is the big hurry? Enjoy the g19, save your money, buy a g23, be the happy owner of two glocks. There you go, problem solved.
