    I've seen posts about people mating a Glock 36 upper half to a Glock 30 receiver to make for a slim topped high capcity carry gun. I am EXTREMELY interested in this idea but I've seen some mixed info. I've read threads where it works flawlessly, and others where people have said it was a hoax and can never work. So, I'd like to hear from any who have done it how they work. But more so than that I want to know if a Glock 36 upper half will go right on a Glock 29 reciever and use Glock 30 mags. To me this would be a HELL of a combo. Slim single stack 45, high cap 45 with slim top, and Sub Compact 10mm, and with a barrel swap to the 10mm slide I can shoot 40 and 357sig, all in one. Are the ejectors the same on the 29/30/36? Or is there any internal part swaping that needs to go on in the frames? Most of what I see are Glock 30sf combos with the Glock 36. Is the SF the only one that will work like that or can I use a 30/29 frame? I'm really excited about this idea. My local dealer has a 29 on the shelf ready to buy. So I'd like to hear thoughts on this idea, and any experience from people that have done similar.

    I have a 36, 29, and a 30sf. It does work on both a 30 or 30 sf frame. The internals on the 30, 30sf, 29, 29sf frames are all the same.

    So a 36 upper will function on a 29 lower?

    Yes. Just use 30 or 21 mags.

    Nice, hopefully this will be a little quad caliber kit. If Advantage arms make a Glock 30/29 22lr upper, then it'll be a 5 caliber kit. :cool:

    Nice! Any pics from the rear to see how much wider the frame is than the slide?

    Here is a pic from the rear, and a pic of the Frankenglock in a G23 holster. Just had to loosen the tension screw a few turns.

    I did it cause some yahoo on here said it wouldn't work. Benefit? Not sure there is one. I ran about 300 flawless rounds through mine in this configuration.

    I don't get it lol.... Why not just have a 30 or 36? There has to be some kind of carry advantage?

    The 30 slide is like a brick. For some it's not an issue. But even 10th of an inch counts for me when I carry. If you don't think it would make a difference for you then it's probably not going to help you. I personally prefer the 36, but if I can add a little bulk and get 11 rounds over 7 then it's worth it to me.
