    I have a 2nd Gen G17 and I want to put my first Gen G24C top half on the lower G17. What parts will I need to change? J.Michael uncowboy@comcastDOT net

    Older 9mm one pin frames are not as strong as the 40/357 2 pin frames. Your G24 top will fit a G17 frame, but may flex more and peen the slide quicker than a correct 40 frame, and may cause accelerated frame rail wear on the older single pin frame.
