Kahr Arms 380 and Guncrafter Glock Conversion 50 GI Review

Kahr Arms 380 and Guncrafter Glock Conversion 50 GI Review

The Guncrafter 50 GI Glock Conversion for the Glock Model 21 45 ACP.
The Guncrafter 50 GI Glock Conversion for the Glock Model 21 45 ACP .

Done correctly, modern handguns offer a perfect combination of polymer and steel. They bring together thoughtful ergonomics, ideal features and craftsmanship. But do you need a big gun or a little one? I guess that depends on the circumstances and what you want to accomplish.

So which gun do you need: A .380 that disappears when concealed or a .50 GI that will punch holes in just about anything you decide to shoot? How do you choose? I say buy both for some very good reasons.

The first rule of a handgun is that it must fire every time you pull the trigger. Accuracy is negotiable. Reliability is not. When you get both accuracy and reliability, you have a handgun to brag about. Both of the guns highlighted here have earned their bragging rights.

We’ll start with the big gun because, in America, people love big things.

Guncrafter’s Glock Conversion Kit 50 GI

The .50 GI pushes the 300-grain bullet at 725 fps. The 275-grain at 875 fps.
The .50 GI pushes the 300-grain bullet at 725 fps. The 275-grain at 875 fps and opens up to more than an inch in diameter. Ouch, that’s gonna leave a mark .

First off, the idea of Glock conversion is not new. Several firms are making kits to take the Austrian pistol down to .22 caliber for low-cost plinking. But Guncrafter Industries went the other direction, taking the Glock 21 up from the .45 ACP to the whopping .50 GI. That’s right, this is a big-bore auto pistol with a half-inch hole in the front of the barrel. And unlike the X-Frame S&W monsters , the Guncrafter’s sidearm is one you can control and carry with relative ease.

The deal is simple: Field strip the Glock. Put the new slide and barrel assembly on the frame, insert a new magazine containing .50 GI rounds and you are in business. It all takes less than a minute and you go from a big, honkin’ self-defense pistol to an even bigger honkin’ pistol that will take care of just about any critter found from sea to shining sea.

Whether you use the gun for self-defense or hunting you will not have to worry about performance. You might not want to carry the gun as your primary firearm on a grizzly bear hunt, but it would make a fine backup pistol in bear country. And I’m guessing the big bullets will encourage even the toughest wild hog to take a lengthy dirt nap.

Made from top quality stainless steel forgings, the conversion includes a complete top end: slide, recoil spring, barrel, etc. and a magazine for your Glock Model 20 or 21 . The magazine offers a 9+1 capacity with the extended base or an 8+1 capacity with a standard base, all for a retail price of $595. Quite the bargain.

The .50 GI round was designed as a self-defense round, so it’s made to hit hard but still be controllable. Pushing a 300-grain bullet at 725 feet per second gives you a power factor of 210! There is also a 275-gr...
