    Is it possible to take my p-32 and change a few parts to make it into a .380 cal?
    I would like to do this upgrade but if its not possible cause of the p-32 cannot handle the change I will just buy another gun. The 32 cal was fine as a BUG but now that they make it in .380 for the same size I want the additional stopping power.
    thanks

    NO it is not possible. While the guns are very similar in size, they are not identical. The P32 is a tad smaller and the slides and barrels are not interchangeable at all. The mags also have some different dimensions. Besides, even if this were possible, the parts would cost about as much as a new gun. Want a P3AT? Get one. :cool:

    welcome to KTOG.

    Making a P32 into a .380ACP
    Like TxC stated...NO

    Just go get a P3AT ;)

    Then, you could have a .380ACP barrel sleeved and bored out to .32ACP. BTW, never heard of this being done, but at least it would be a possiblity

    Of course you could always trade in the P32 on a P3AT...

    but I wouldn't. ;)
