Glock 17 / Glock 17 Long Slide Conversion
In 1980, the Austrian Armed Forces reached out for a new pistol to replace their World War II–era Walther P38’s.
The requirements were daunting:
- Fire 9×19 mm ammunition
- Withstand drop, 2 meters to a steel plate
- Fire 15,000 times without appreciable wear
- Pressure test for operation without failure using ammunition generating over 73,500 PSI.
The Glock 17 passed the test, out-performing the other guns they ran and it was adopted!
Other armed forces followed, as have millions of happy gun owners.
In 2018 .960 Rowland® adopted this great weapon as well, upgrading it to deliver 30% more velocity and 100% more muzzle energy.
That’s right: True .357 Magnum Power and Performance from this battle proven 9mm platform!
Our NEW Conversion does not require a Compensator or Porting! We will use your G17 or G17L barrel….just send it in and we will take care of the rest.
This NEW Conversion can be accomplished in TWO WAYS:
1) OWNER BARREL: You send us your Glock 17/17L barrel: Just $198
2) PURCHASED BARREL: We can supply a NEW Glock 17 barrel for your Conversion…ADD $199…(or $223 for the G17 Long Slide)
The Glock-17 delivers easy operation, exceptional accuracy and proven reliability right out of the box.If there is any drawback to this excellent firearm it is the modest 9mm power level. But install the Mighty .960 Rowland® Conversion and have it all! Harness the power, accuracy, and range of the widely respected .357 Magnum Revolver without having to cope with the size, weight, or low capacity of that otherwise iconic handgun. Send in your barrel and .460 Rowland® LLC will transform your Glock-17 (or Glock-17-Long Slide!) into the great and powerful handgun it was always meant to be…and continue to fire your Standard, Super and +P 9mm Ammunition from the same setup and barrel.
