If the frame has a ramp (meaning it isn't cut for a ramped barrel), it won't work unless you reshape the ramp. However, if you use a ramped barrel, either W/N or Para, you can cut the frame for the barrel and you'll be OK. You'll also need to fit the rails correctly for the slide you'll be using. Additionally, the correct recoil and main springs will be needed.
