    Where can one get am OEM Glock 23 slide? My G23 shoots low and left, too much for my likings. I tried it with a G32 barrel and that, too, was low and left. I like the ability to hit point of aim at 25m and having to consciously alter that is unacceptable.

    Now my G38, that bastard is a laser.

    If you are convinced the slide is the culprit I recommend you sell the gun and go to your local range before making the next purchase. This way you can try the gun, make sure it shoots to point of aim and then purchase it.
    If you will settle for a stainless slide you can see them here http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Products.aspx?CAT=247

    I found out the locking block was one for a G19 and traded it out for a correct one. The problem is decreased but still not up to my standards. The problem around here is that it is damned near impossible to fire a weapon prior to purchase, this is NY. There is no apparent abnormal wear on the barrel or in the slide but the fact that both the G23 and the G32 barrels shoot to the same spot has me wondering.

    You are correct, I was misinformed by somebody who should have known better.

    Shot it today and with 135 Winchester it is center but 2" low, 180 Speer is 3" left. Driving me nuts as I have never had this problem before. My G27 is a damned little beast for accuracy.

    When you feel you have done enough and are ready to give up, send me the gun. I will look it over and test fire free of charge. If I can not do any better than what you have, sell it and start shopping for a replacement. Its all I can do for you at this point.
