Not trying to hijack this thread....but it can be done...

I’ll be the first to admit I got lucky with mine.

I was going to clean 2 of mine last week. A Dan Wesson CCO .45 and Dan Wesson Guardian 9mm/.38S, and I thought, why not see if the slides will interchange... Perfect fit.......
Both of the Dan Wesson’s have a ramped barrel.

Guardian with complete CCO top end and CCO with complete Guardian top end

Even the slide to ejector was a decent fit...

It can also be done with a standard barrel. I converted my ATI FX45K from .45 to 9mm a few years ago. Again, I’ll admit I got lucky. The Remsport 9mm slide fit the frame without any fitting, so I can easily switch back to .45 if I want to without worrying about a sloppy fit
