    I just picked up a Gen 3 G17. It's a 2-pin model, which we don't have at my PD. It has the extended slide stop on it, which I don't care for. All we have is 3-pin slide stops. Will this work without issue, or do I need to find one made for the 2-pin model?

    TIA.

    You can use a 2 pin model in a 3 pin by simply filing off the point it has that the other don't, but you CAN NOT use a 3 pin in a 2 pin frame simply because it don't have the pyramid shaped point on it which is required. I am currently running three 3 pin guns with 2 pin extended slide stops in the that I filed off befor the others were readily avaliable and they have been flawless for years.

    What does the triangle do other than limit the movement up?

    Anyone got a line of the 2-pin slide stop?

    I was having problems at the range with the extended part, so I went ahead and threw the 3-pin slide lock in while waiting for the correct part to come in. Ran like a top. Shot it for a few days, and got the "correct" part in. No difference that I can tell. So I guess in a pinch they work fine.
