It doesn't matter. But if you don't have a Glock frame, a Glock upper is only really effective as a paperweight.

The lower is the firearm.

No, nothing has to match, but some European manufacturers like to serialize everything. I know H&K for example serializes barrel, slide, and frame and uses date codes, all in German tradition.

cant you still sell the upper for someone to use on a lower? or use the upper on a different upper? i dont see why it becomes useless.

Yeah, but how often to people really need a new Glock slide and barrel? Sometimes, I'm sure, but it's not like selling an AR upper.

Also, if someone were to buy a new upper/lower for their Glock and decides to sell it later. I wouldn't buy a mismatched Glock unless it was REALLY cheap. Like, $100 or something. There's too many perfectly matching used Glocks out there.

I joined GSSF ($80 for 3 years) and bought a new gen4 19 for $399, and plan on getting a 17 next year and then something else the year after and then letting my membership lapse, GSSF is well worth the price of admission

And this has what to do with the topic at hand?

Maybe he is just bragging. Also he just paid $399 for a full gun instead of $430 for an upper.

The title of the thread is "$735 For Normal Glock 19? ".

He stated he can get one for $399.

I think the comment is relevant.
