Today’s video is quite different from my normal testing. In this installment, I attempt to create the world’s first 9mm conversion of a .45 ACP GLOCK 21… a FrankenGLOCK. As far as I know, having Googled and consulting two GLOCK armorers, this hasn’t been done be-fo. One even told me it can’t be done. My purposes for wanting to try are similar to many folks who attempt wacky projects . . .
1) For the hell of it
2) Because I am cheap
What I really wanted was a long-barrel 9mm pistol for ammo testing purposes, GLOCK isn’t currently making a G17L, and I didn’t want to spend $600 for a test pistol. Thanks to Lone Wolf’s conversion barrel, I had hope for a much lower cost alternative. While the result isn’t perfect, it surpassed my expectations and it will certainly serve the purpose.
Now I’m inspired to convert this G21 into a do-everything pistol. Future installments will show my attempts to convert it to 10mm, to .40 S&W, to 460 Rowland, and even to a .50-caliber 50GI.
