    Default Converting Glock 42 to a 43

    I bought a Glock 42 for my wife for Christmas this year, well surprise, she doesn't like it, so it rests in my gun safe unfired. It is a good size for concealed carry, but I'm not comfortable carrying a .380. I might consider carrying it if I could convert it to a 9mm, basically turning it into a Glock 43. Anyone know if I can accomplish this with just a barrel and magazine change ??

    The 43 is slightly bigger in almost every dimension. Not really going to be feasible to convert it to 9. You'd probably be better off selling it and using the funds towards a 43 or 43x.

    Thanks, I wasn't aware of the size differences, guess for now it'll stay in my safe and I'll continuing carrying my Glock 27 until I decide exactly what I want to do. Thanks for the response.
