Default Convert Glock 34 to .40 S & W

I have a 3rd Gen. Glock 34. I was thinking about buying a G22 or G35 slide and shooting .40 S & W. Will the frame designed for a 9mm hold up to the pounding of the .40 cal?

yes it is the same frame. I bought a 35 slide and put it onto a 17. I did have a 9mm conversion barrel in so i did not have to change some of the 9mm specific parts in the frame. I bought a 34 so i have two gun setup with one frame. if you check the for sale section you will see someone selling a 34/35 setup.

I know the G35 slide will fit the frame, and that the exjector has to be changed, but was wondering if the frame can take the added energy from the .40 cal round. I read someplace that not all 3rd gen frames are strong enough.

Randy ask Ray he's the guy. One question I do have is. Does your frame have 2 pins or 3? Glock changed to 3 pin guns in the 9/40 frames because the 40 was beating up the 2 pin guns.

They use the exact frame in the G17, G34, G22, and G35. There are some parts changes here and there, but its relatively minor.

I have the G17, G34, and G35, and yes they all will swap without much fanfare. I did find that my G35 converted to 9mm was a bit unreliable, hence the addition of the G34.

What you're proposing should not be an issue at all. It's been awhile, but I cant recall if you'll "absolutely" need a new ejector or not.. As for the 2 pin or 3 pin glocks, I think it's all a bit much. Glock redesigned it to add some strength but there are PLENTY of .40 caliber glock 2 pin guns floating arount out there that work just fine. I wouldnt think twice about it shooting a 2 pin 40 cal Glock... Yes, the 3 pin was designed for more strength, but the 2 pin version will be fine.

Can you add a G34 slide to a G17 frame for the longer barrel? Or a 34 barrel in a G17 frame/slide?
