    I just bought a glock 23. It is a 2nd gen and I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to buy a 3rd gen frame.

    Thanks

    Well, legally, the frame is the gun. So, the short answer is, sure, if you can find a dealer willing to sell you a 3rd generation frame (yeah, good luck!). It'd be just like buying a second gun. I seem to remember back when Glock first came out with the 3rd generation frame seeing some postings about Glock being willing to do an exchange or sale. I always preferred the 2nd generation frame, so I didn't pay much attention. In any case, from what I understand, Glock will no longer do this (I'm sure that if I'm wrong someone out there will correct me!)

    Cool. Glad to see that there's an option out there if you really want the 3rd generation frame.

    Before you send the frame off for a swap, you might want to try selling it to someone who likes the 2nd gen frames (like me). That way you can buy a 3rd gen, and we get to keep a 2nd gen in circulation.
