    Can I convert my glock27 to waterproof by changing the spring cups to amphibous???
    I have heard that the glock 17, 19 & 26 mariner version is dedicated to waterproof- underwater shooting. So how about glock27 with amphibous spring cups can it also fire underwater? are there any waterproof amunition available for .40 cal. Pls advise.

    Although I'm new to Glocks, from what I understand, adding the maritime spring cups isn't such a super idea unless you're a special forces or SWAT member.

    From what I saw briefly on the internet the other day, the pressure difference underwater can seriously hurt your hearing.

    At least, that's what I read... no telling tho'.

    I'll leave it to someone far more experienced to answer this one...

    I do not advise firing any gun underwater; however, you may put the maritime spring cups in your gun and it should still function normal. There are sights and postings here that talk about these and the firing under water and the extreme hazards involved. I would recommend reading and talking with as many people as you can about the facts of these parts and actually firing under water and decide for yourself but think most will advise against it. Hope this helps and goodluck. ;I

    The Glock 9mm's can fire under water, but it's a big no-no to fire any other caliber Glock under water. Besides, it's not very effective, and you don't really get in that many shooting situations under water anyway.

    Firing ANY FIREARM UNDERWATER is not a good idea and it can hurt you trying it. Why would want to shoot underwater? Thinking you might mugged underwater?? Seriously though, if you really have to shoot underwater get a SPEARGUN ...............

    Well actually i was thinking of a scenario when there will have a ship wreck and I am force to abandon ship, and when there will have alot of sharks in that area. Im gonna use my glock 27 to protect me and my love ones. not really being mugged by another human being.

    Now there's a LOW probability scenario. Spend your time worrying about higher probability stuff.

    If you have to shoot under water a 9mm Glock is all you want to use.

    I know of abalone divers who use them for protection from sharks.

    I personally know a yacht captain who dives with one as well as the owner of the boat mainly because when you are down island you never know who might be on your boat when you come up. Pirates do still exist.
