How do you get new frames or sell them?

    I've seen listings for Glock frames only. I was wondering what people do with these. Don't serial numbers have to match up or anything? I'd like to call glock if I could and get two OD frames but I'm not sure if they even do this.

    Any input?

    As the firearm really is the frame, this part is not like ordering a few spare recoil springs, or even a new barrel.

    Each frame is going to require all the same paperwork as if a complete pistol is being sold, requiring FFL, form 4473,etc....

    glock does not simply sell new frames, except in case of repair possibly.

    Members are simply taking a complete firearm and "parting it out"
    The sell the fram, the complete slide and the magazines, all seperately.

    No the numbers don't have to match. If you get a replacement frame on a factory recall or such, it will have a different number (So I've been told).

    As stated, the serial number is on the frame, this is the gun. The serial number on the slide and barrel mean nothing as far as the BATF is concerned.

    people look for used frames to use with the .22lr conversion kits, among other things. it's nice to have a dedicated "glock .22lr" so one doesn't have to swap out barrels. i guess $250 is a reasonable price, all things considered, but still too steep for me. anything under $200 i would consider, a frame at $100-150 i would buy without hesitation. under $100 i would jump on in any condition! my 2 cents.
