Glock 17 Gen 2 and Gen 3 slides....are they the same?

Discussion in 'General Glocking' started by SW CQB 45, Oct 28, 2012.

  1. I have a G22 3rd Gen frame and a 3rd Gen G34 slide and it works excellent (ejector changed out)

    I have a chance to buy a 2nd Gen G17 upper.

    I would hate to buy it and there are some dimension differences between the two generations which causes some unwanted slop or unknown issues.

    I looked up in a search function and came up zero, maybe not entering the right wording.

    is the slide the same for a G17 gen 2 and gen 3?

    what are the differences, if any?

    if this has been discussed and you have a link...please post!

    thanks in advance

    it will work without issue.....

  3. I bought it. :cool:


    I will shoot in two days.

    alot of holster wear and cleaned off a bunch of gunk.

    the plastic sights were all chewed up and I had some steel Glock sights laying around.

    Hope it shoots well.
