    just want to know if you can convert a g27 to shoot 9mm and 357sig.

    i know all you need is a 357sig barrel to shoot that caliber.

    does the same apply for 9mm? do you just need a stock barrel and g26 magazines?

    just want to make sure it is safe, thanks in advance.

    Not exactly, when Glock switched to 357 SIG they added an extra support to the 40/357 frames. Call Glock and ask the serial # cutoff to assure you have the new support in your gun's frame.
    You'll need a conversion bbl in 9mm made specifically for 40/357 slides to match up to those slides' larger breech face. The guys over at GlockTalk can tell you about the prefferd bbl makers. There is a minute rate of malfuntion for the 40/357 ejector & extractor when handling 9mm. For range you'll probably never notice the difference. For self defense or competition you'll want to put the 9mm extractor and ejector in.
    Follow the above steps and it will be safe. The Glocks are very adaptable.
