    I have a G17 gen3 and a G22 gen2, my question is can you change the slides from the G17 to the G22 my reason is that the gen2 without the finger groves fits my hand bettThanks

    The frames are the same, but if you're going to move the slide go ahead and change the trigger housing too so you have the correct ejector.

    The only difference from Gen2 to 3 is the grip. The difference between a 17 and 22 is the 22 slide is slightly taller and the firing pin lug is slightly longer to accommodate the difference in barrel between a 9mm and .40 and the ejectors have different angles.
