It would appear that my G21 did not want to leave home. The individual that took ownership had a little mishap at the range and ended up with a cracked frame from a drop. So he offered the pistol to me at half of what he paid. I thought that was very generous so I accepted and decided to, after snooping around the web for repair possibilities, fix it myself. I already had some experience with plastic welding on a radiator so I applied my knowdedge and for all "practical" purposes fixed the frame. I used a soldering iron and some black nylon weed wacker line. It was split from the end to the serial number plate.
