I have a SA ultra compact (PX9301L) chambered in .45 acp.

Been playing around with the idea of converting it to 9mm so I can keep a little less ammo around.

Is this possible, and what all would be involved besides barrel and magazine?

Thanks,
Tim

Won't work due to the size of the breech face, without replacing the slide.

I guess it's possible to do on your slide. A 'smith could machine the current breech face to accept an inserted breech face of the correct size, ala the previous model SIG P220/P225/P226/P228 pistols, before they went to the solid stainless steel slide.

Your best bet would be to sell the pistol that you have and put the money towards one in 9mm, if that's what you're wanting.

There are too many differences to include feed ramps, etc. to make conversion economically feasonable.

Buy one in 9mm and use it for practice. Carry the .45ACP model.

Thanks for the replies.

I knew with my luck it wouldn't be possible :dope: :)

Less ammo around is not a good thing! :)

Save your brass, and reload it for about $5-$6 a box later...then can shoot more for less money, which is ALWAYS a good thing!

Between 12ga. for trap, and 30-06 for my M1, I have no desire to do any more!!:D
