Can I....

Can I take a 9mm Aegis Elite Pro, change as needed to convert to 45acp.... Is it that "simple" so to speak?? I have to many 9mm's and all the frame and slide spec's are the same for both sizes...

Short answer: NO

Different ejector, different breach face, extractor in a 9mm slide.

However, you could use a complete .45 ACP slide and accomplish what you want.

Rick is 100% right on this, I've taken the slide from a 9mm Ultra CDP and swapped it with the slide from a .45 Ultra Tactical and they both worked perfectly.
