I'm on the edge of dropping the bucks on a Glock project gun.
I have a G21SF with the pic rails and ambi safety. I dearly love that setup!
The project would be to buy a LWD tactical length slide, of course a tactical length barrel, all the parts for the extractor, a firing pin safety and spring and a striker channel liner, and a recoil spring.
The only thing I'll have to change from the stock slide over to the LWD tactical slide is the striker assembly and slide cover.
I want to mount a Insight MRDS on the slide. I may machine the slide slightly for the MRDS, but I can't much because the light sensor is located at the bottom front of the sight - it's about the only RDS that has ambient light sensor looking at the threat area instead of vertically above the gun. An Insight WL1 Series Tactical Light/Laser will go on the rails.
Any problems so far?
I already have a Taylor Freelance +4 mag extension, so that will give 17+1 .45 ACP rounds in the gun.
Here's my real question:
I'm thinking about getting the LWD ported barrel:
My question is, does all that hot gas blowing upwards on the slide as it passes over them, degrade the slide?
Many thanks for your time and thoughts,
