Call Glock, ask them. If there was an upgrade, they should know by your serial number if it's been done.

Using factory ammo, though, I wouldn't worry about it.

The extractors are different in that they don't have the loaded chamber indicator and a different angle. Also, the ejector will be coated black, ( as well as the trigger bar) and not bare metal,like on newer models. I had one a little while back and had a Glock armorer order the parts for me as buying them on your own can get pricey. There are numerous parts that are needed to be replaced for the upgrade, but the barrels are not one. Some people have had luck calling Glock and then were shipped the parts but others, like myself, had to go through a Glock armorer.

The 'black' parts of one of my Gen 2 G21s.



Gen 2 G21 'black' parts vs. an upgraded Gen 2 G17.





As patw stated, the barrel isn't part of this upgrade..

I've owned and ran Gen 2 Glocks in 9mm, 40, 45, and even a Gen 1 G17, all with original parts without issue.

Thank you and all that responded! All my internals are bright steel, so whatever upgrade there was it looks like mine has it. It'll make a fine console gun in the SUV.

I shot it the other day and as expected it's a bit snappier than my G19 but I shot it well enough to make 10 of 13 head shots from 15 yards from the first mag and 12 of 13 from the second ... I've got a bunch of styrofoam heads a renter left at my property, they were free and make great targets I may have to buy some then their shot up!

Question

Have: Gen 1 Glock 35 in .40 cal.

Want: to drop it down to 9mm so my wife and sons can handle it a little bit better.

From my research, I found several posts stating that all that's required is a G19 barrel and magazine. Is that really all it takes?

Seems like there would be more to it.

The ejector mechanism is differant on the .40 vs the 9mm, so if not changed, I think that there would be ejection problems.

Glock 7 barrel will fit. But it's not steel and is probably expensive.

You would be better off to buy one of the .40 to 9 conversion barrels from an aftermarket source then simply trying to drop in a 9mm factory barrel.

Your screen is too small Wink

Plain old iPhone 7 pictures. I just started hosting with Imgur, used Photobucket for years.

It appears that Imgur doesn't downsize pics like Photobucket did.

Used the quote feature from this website and cut out all but one of his pictures.

I have no idea how to size them; just quoted him.

While we're glockin'

Any word on gen 4 G30s, or Gen 4 G36?

I've become spoiled by the Gen 4's. I don't really like the Gen 3's anymore.

People are trying to wish upon us the gen 5's. I would appreciate finishing the lineup of Gen 4's
There are Gen 4 .45GAPs for crying out loud.

Everything went through OC Custom Coatings here in OC, CA.

They did the urban camo (hard to see in pics) Cerakote on the slide and frame, and they installed the Deus trigger and magwell (which is also Cerakoted).

They have local partners for the slide work and the frame work. I think Stone's Custom Glocks did the frame, to be honest I can't recall who did the slide.

The work is top-notch, though. I'm very happy with the result.

Just waiting on Deus to finish up a batch of barrels, so I can get my barrel and guide rod...
