    Good question Butch. I am shopping for a slim frame and G20sf hard to find at the gun shows but have seen a lot of 21sf's. I will be looking for a 21sf to put my G20 slide on it without ambi mag catch. My question is can I swap slides? Would not mind adding .45 ACP to my collection but would prefer to carry in the 10mm configuration. I have a G20 now but loved the feel of the sf better than the full 20 due to short fingers but still love my Std 20.

    Yup, as long as the SF (Short Frame) has the original style mag catch instead of the ambi catch, it should work fine with the G20 upper and the old magazines. If it has the ambi catch it will need the newer style mags with the ambi notch.
