Does anyone know, or has anyone sent in there older glock to have the frame replaced? Will Glock replace a worn frame?

I am picking up an older 3rd gen, and I would like to make it look new again.

Yep, been that way for a while.... I wouldn't wait around, you have no idea how long it may be.

And I really hate to buy something like that sight unseen, not to mention I can't find a price anywhere. So, back to the original option, does anyone know if Glock will replace a frame?

Yes, they'll replace the frame. I just got my G26 back from Smyrna. I got an American-made replacement "G-frame" (S/N Gxxxxx) because I was told the Austrian frames would take twice as long to arrive. From sending out to getting back was no more than three weeks... new frame, and a bunch of other new stuff too! Take the time to call them & keep on top of it, everyone I talked to over there was really helpful.

I don't think they will replace it for cosmetic reasons. If there is a breakage or a mechanical problem,YES definitely

Why did you have your frame replaced?

don't think i would do that !!!! and how bad is it on the other frame ? :whistling:

Oh, I've seen worse, but I'm picking up the gun for $150 otd tomorrow, so I can spare a few bucks on my G17 budget, so a $150 glock frame wouldn't hurt my feelings.

I had also kicked around the idea of a ccf frame.

i would not get the ccf frame !!!! I would just call glock and see what they want you to do to send them the gun to them ( 770-432-1202 )

Well, I am now waiting to hear back from a friend whose dad is an armorer at Glock in Smyrna.

I have a g21 that was on the recall list. I took it to glock and offered to pay for a 21sf frame and they would not do it. I did get a new standard 21 frame free .

:) Sorry for being a little slow on this one; but, awhile ago Glockmeister was selling Glock frames (receivers) separately from the rest of the pistol. Wasn't cheap; and the serial numbers didn't match; but, you could get them. You might, also, want to check with Aro-Tek. They might have something you could use, too.

Wouldn't be too fast to write off Lone Wolf's new frame. It's probably a lot closer to distribution than you think; and, I'll bet it works. In any event I have never found the Shepard family to be anything but entirely honest and a pleasure to do business with.

JR stands behind every product that Lone Wolf sells. For instance, there are two exceptional Glock connectors in the world - better than factory - and Lone Wolf distributes one of them. Why not give it a couple of months before you decide to do anything about a new frame? You might be pleasantly surprised.

In my personal opinion, the Glock pistol was never designed to be a metal frame gun. I, myself, am not willing to, 'jump through the hoops' necessary to guarantee that a metal framed Glock is going to work. If you want something like this for the range or competition, fine; but, I'd never never carry one. ;)

I sent one in for the frame recall, and they had to order a new frame from Austria to get the same serial number (well, with a 1 in front of the old serial number). It took about 6 weeks, which is what they told me when I called before shipping.

When I got it back, they had replaced ALL the internals, and the frame. It was virtually a new gun.

They test fired it, and returned it with the packing slip with all the replaced parts listed. They removed an aftermarket connector I had left in the gun, but sent it back in a baggie in the box.

They can send directly back to an individual, it doesn't have to go through an FFL (in Alabama, at least).

Best part: all done at No Charge except the shipping costs to send it to them.

BTW: When I called to check at 6 weeks, they couldn't tell me an estimated ship date. But it arrived in less than another week anyway.

You can check to see if yours is on the recall list by looking in the Serial Number Thread," or just by calling Glock. If you want to send one in that isn't recalled, I think it costs like $150, as others have said, for the service. But you get back what is virtually a new gun!
