    Is this possible? I have a G34 but would like the grip (NO back-strap) of the Gen4 G17. Has anyone tested this? Plus the extended mag release is also a plus. I use the gun for USPSA/IDPA...i wonder if its legal in USPSA...probably not on IDPA.

    I'm not sure if this will work as the internal dimensions of the Gen4 frame are different because of the larger newer style guide rod/recoil spring combo.

    But please let us know if it does work. :wavey:

    It would look strange in the front if it did work, but I would not think the Gen. 3 and Gen. 4 Receivers and frames would interchange.
