    so ive always wanted a glock, my first is a g32 3rd gen i have fed it about 200-300 rounds. so now i guess i have caught the bug. so my question would be were could i find a g23 rtf slide with the fish grills to replace my g32 latter? if im correct i can just get a bare slide or trade and just keep my barrel, but were would be the first place to start looking.

    thanks in advance

    Just get a G23 barrel. The G23 and G32 are nearly identical save the barrel.

    You might better hurry and just buy the G23 RTF with the gills. So many people *****ed about it that Glock is no longer making them. I'm glad I got one plus what I like is to put my 19 slide on it.

    My 32 has shot quite a few more 40s than 357s through it.

    I'm not sure what people found so offensive about the gills, I wish one of my 26s had them.

    I think the fish gills are short lived. To me they offer no improvements but may be something for collectors years from now.

    The RTF is real abrasive, a sit down with a fine file turned it in to a great IDPA gun, if carried it pulls on your shirt! My hands do not sweat, this is a great grip system, when suitably ground down.

    Generation 4 Mod; 19s will be out in the summer, way to go.

    I'm gonna have to find one with fish gills soon too. As of late they were being made with regular serrations, so the fish gills/scallopped serrations have been discontinued.

    I was gonna get a G27 in a couple weeks but I may get the fish gill 23 if I can find one, because once they're gone they're gone. You'll only be able to find them used pretty soon.
