That really is the question.. I don't have a gen4 slide, so I can't say one way or another.

Yes, there will be since the exterior dimensions of the dust cover are the same on a Gen 3 and Gen 4.

Looks like once you get rid of that lip, very little should have to be removed from the channel itself.

However the Polymer80 chose a picatinny rail which appears to encroach more into the frame. I get my frame Thursday and I'll put together a drawing.

Do these work? I seen one video on YouTube with a guy shooting his and it was failing to go into battery, failing to feed and the slide wasn't locking back.

It would be nice to be able to have a legit firearm that you don't have to register.

I hope to get mine to The Machine Gun Nest one night this week and run a few boxes of ammo.

I saw a post on FB from P80 in regards to Brownells having their first shipment and another was on the way. Not sure which models, but I'm sure it was all compacts.

I have only run a box of WWB through mine so far, more this week, but I have had not a single issue. 50 trigger pulls, 50 bangs and a locked slide on the empty mag.

200+ trigger pulls, 200+ bangs - no FTF's, 1 partial FTE (didn't kick the brass cleanly out), locks back on empty every time.

These are a hand built deal and people are using many different aftermarket parts.
Sometimes not all parts work well together and some hand fitting is required.

Look up glockstore's build on YT and they show a little fitting they had to do.

But these frames will require much less of that sort of thing than the full size frames had.

Why? The shipping is clearly indicated before you click confirm on your order. It is also sent with the order confirmation email, along with the phone number and email address for Brownell's customer service.

Yes, that was my concern.. there is very little meat there where the slide cut at the front intersects the pic rail grooves. It may not be an issue if you don't 'use' the pic rail, but there is only about .080" of meat there at that point when I measure it with calipers.

Just finished a G22 clone with the large frame kit. Ordered a .22LR conversion and going to put it on a dedicated frame for a plinker and training. Works fine...although I didn't use the jig for the rear rails and I didn't use the end mill they sent for the upper frame media removal...I did that with a dremel...I got way better results although it took longer.

What .22 LR kit did you order mule? If you got the advantage arms and want to test a tactical solutions I'd be happy to let you give it a try. What part of the state are you in?

I bought the Tactical Solutions kit with the 10 round mag and the threaded barrel. It hasn't arrived yet so I am completing the frame while I wait for it. I read reviews on the 3 that I could find...TS, AA and ZEV..Zev was too expensive. I bought the TS because the reviews were a tiny bit better..My thought it this..I bought it for practice. 22LR is a lot less expensive than 40S&W...If the gun fails to load, fails to eject or jams in any other way, it adds realism to practice...You never know when your weapon will stove pipe or double..it's just as important to learn to clear and recover quickly as it is to hit what you are aiming for..And thanks for the offer, but between running my business and a very ill father in law I don't have a lot of free time other than late at night..Maybe after things in my life settle down a bit we can go test them...I am in the Halethorpe zip code.

Cool, not far at all, I am right behind 2A sales.

I have six of the 15 round mags for the tactical solutions set up which I bought because it works on all gen Glock's.

The kit works best with mini mags for sure but there are other brands that work well also.
