    A pre-Gen4 G17 frame assembly uses EJECTOR 336.

    A pre-Gen4 G22 frame assembly uses EJECTOR 1882.

    Therefore. in the new frame you need to install Trigger Mechanism Housing 1896, which includes Ejector 1882.

    Just take the ejector and/or THM out of your Gen 2, if your RTF happens to be a 17 instead of a G22.

    Yes it'll work. I've interchanged Gen 2 and 3 Glock 19 frame/slides.
