    You'll also need to get an extended barrel. The Compact guns have the same lock-up as the sub-compacts but not the full size.

    Yep... a G17 barrel WILL NOT mork in a 19 or 26... different dimensions in the lock up/lug area. You can see this if you lay a 17 and 19 barrel together. You can use a 19 barrel in a 26 though.

    I'm sorry I didn't get all that when I first read the info on the site. I should have read more thoroughly.

    I do appreciate you guys keepin' me in check.

    So once the adapter and bbl are installed, do you guys have enough faith in the conversion to tote it as a fighting pistol?
    Or is this range only material?

    And just why would someone want a G19 frame with a G17 slide/barrell?

    Slide length is easy to hide, its in an IWB holster.
    Concealing the grip is more what I'm looking for.
    I like all the slide length and sight radius I can get.
    The 19 frame still allows a puchase, just not as long past the hand.
    I can either mod a 17 frame to 19 length, or use a 19 frame and the conversion bbl and adapter.

    That's right, the grip is a bit shorter.

    By the time you buy the extra barrel and the adapter it seems like you might be better off picking up an extra frame and chopping it rather than using untested aftermarket parts. . .

    cowboy,
    after checking around, it seems I am better off.
    I have 2 full frames.
    Now, I just gotta decide if I'm gonna tap into my inner dremmel fu, or pay the vig for someone who knows what they are doing to do it.
