Glock 66

Wondering where can I find slide only to make a Glock 66 and if internal parts of a G30 fit into G36 slide to make my project come true?

You can find a slide in Gunbroker or even in the classifieds section of this very forum for about $325. However, add in a few thousand dollars for explaining it in court if you use it. It might be viewed as somewhat weird or unusual to do that, and as such a good attorney in a criminal or civil case would be crazy not to waste a day or two of billing discussing it with everyone on your dime. If it's a good shoot - no worries. However, you are still out a few grand arguing that point in front of a judge or jury. Enjoy!

Do you really expect a prosecutor or an opposing counsel to know that there is anything odd about a widebody 36? They would just call it whatever number is on the slide. Even if there was any argument to be made that it was somehow criminal to modify a gun in such a manner, the odds anyone would notice are very slim.

They'll notice the non-matching numbers and go from there. The crime lab will do the work for them. Do what you like. It doesn't impact me either way.

IMHO, there are so many mods/accessories for a gun that could motivate a prosecuter to go after you if they wanted. A lighter trigger pull, aluminum side saddle on a shotgun, etc. And although I wouldn't do the mod that the OP is asking about, I'm more worried about how I can be most comfortable with my gun then how it might look in front of a jury. I also have Texas Law Shield to cover all attorney's fees in the event that I have to go in front of a jury.

Really does a 36 slide fit on a 30 receiver? If it does I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work but If any one has one or put one together a Picture would be nice. I own both a G30 and G36 but don't want to bugger up either piece but wow a slim 30 with 10 plus rounds Yea got to like that.

Why doesn't Glock build it?

If I had a shortlist of dumbest internet shit I've seen this would be on it.

1)Self defense is self defense is self defense. In the military we have ROE. Civilians have a ROE too. Its codified in your state laws. Follow them and you're good to go.

2)He is attempting to convert his weapon from one that shoots .45ACP... to one that shoots .45ACP.

He is not talking about turning his Glock into a crew served belt fed 20mm anti aircraft auto cannon loaded with flaming nerve gas and live tigers.

The difference in width between a 36 and a 30 is very minimal.

Just one mans opinion, but hardly seems worth the effort.

I thought I had some pictures with the calipers showing the widths, but I guess not.

Anyway, G30 on left, G36 on right

It's amazing what a difference a .125" makes on a CCW.

these defense attys that come out of the woodwork on this site never cease to amaze me. You're arguments are just as realistic as the chewbacca defense.

I occasionally put my 36 slide on my 29 at the range. I have never understood 30 to 36, other then maybe range time.

30 with 36 upper shaves about an 1/8 inch off the slide, and does make it feel noticeably less bulky for IWB carry. I've handled one, but I don't own one since I can't afford to buy a whole pistol just for the slide... I'd probably carry my G30 more if I had it set up that way, though. If LWD sold a G36 slide, I'd get one in a heartbeat.

Oh the folks that think if you have anything other then a stock factory gun and ball ammo that the courts and jury will view you as some crazy blood thirsty killer looking for some poor nun with a bus full of kids to throw off a cliff and set the wreck on fire on piss on the ashes... after all that you shot it with your tweaked firearm and super deadly razor sharp JHP ammo!

Seriously? 10+1 instead of 6+1 or 7+1. The extra grip thickness of the g30 adds value. The extra bulk of the slide does not.
