    Lightening the slide is a bad idea....

    I'm no gunsmith, but wouldn't a hotter caliber require a heavier slide and stiffer recoil spring to compensate?

    And they should be slapped for going with the hacky "ghetto sights" gag.

    This is a local gunshop? Id recommend you find a new place to shop, as the guys an idiot.

    Lightening the slide will yield a poorly functioning weapon, and "gangster sights" are just a sure sign of a moron.

    I plan on doing the 10mm conversion to my jcp . I've talk to a few gunsmiths and they say it can be done and a hi point would be a good option to try it on because of it's blow back design and heavy slide .

    I'd say with a little heavier spring, it'd work....

    They're obviously hi point haters but ive heard people talking about conversion from 40 to 10mm and I didn't know If it had been done before so I wanted to share to show that someone did it or at least claims to have done it, I would like to see a video tho.

    They're incompetent and potentially dangerous. What's the name of the place so i know to never use them.

    Can be and has been done. Correctly. Not like that one.

    Basically just need to keep the slide from slamming back hard enough to crack it or the frame. Well that and the silly little "cycling reliably" thing

    He did, seemed to work pretty well too.

    You can compensate for a lighter slide by using a heavier spring. It's safe as long as you don't compromise the integrity of the slide.

    Personally, I don't like what they did, the "gangsta"sights are just silly, and what's the point of that big honking hole in top of the slide? Did they port the barrel?

    Been done a good bit now, the above comments all apply.
    IMO a Heavier Slide would be good! :D
