Gen4 Frame with Gen3 Slide?

JR,

A Gen4 G23 Frame mated with a Gen3 G38 Slide = paperweight or can I effectively get a Gen4 G38 out of it with proper parts exchange?

(I guess this question could apply across the board for Gen4 frames used with Gen3 slides)

Depending on your answer I would either buy a Gen3 for its slide OR more likely just buy a whole new top end. It appears from your previous posts that I will also have to have to replace the ejector with a short/bent for the GAP round.

Of course I will pick up the correct magazines too.

Thanks in advance JR.

Drew.

You can install the slide however the end of the frame will be open. (wide open) It looks all kinds of wrong.
FYI: LWD will be offering 45 GAP slides soon.

Super glad to hear that - These will be Gen4 GAP slides?

JR - Please PM with date/time expected for delivery - I wont announce it, but I'm negotiating to buy a 38 & 39 right now from different people ... but won't need to buy and could save a ton of money if the LWD GAP slides are coming out in a relatively short period of time.

Thanks.

Its no big secret. We are working on a GAP slide now. We intend to modify the G22 slides to accept the GAP round.
FYI: The original Glock GAP pistols were manufactured this way.
