    Rikki, thanks for that post. Not that I'm gonna run out & buy one but with a Carver on (easier takedown) AND that kind of accuracy improvement out at 50yds, now you're talking something interesting. I shoot alot of 9, have thought of setting up my G21 for something like this, but always thought the G37 had the potential to make a phenomenal Bullseye gun. Dang! Just when I thought my G38 & 39 didn't need any kinfolk around...

    I've read through all five pages of this subject and still have a question.
    Being new to Glocks, I know I don't know much about their operation but why doesn't the MGSL make a difference on the G36?
    I have my first Glock (G21sf) on order, and plan on buying one for this gun, but I also plan on getting a G36 in the near future and am wondering why it's not helpful for this model?

    Will this part fit a G36 or does this gun use a different stop?

    The G36 is, as Walter used to say, the "bastid Glock," sharing fewer parts and no magazines with other Glock models. The G36 slide lock is unique.

    Mr. Graham - Do you plan on making your part to fit the G36?
    Thanks

    Not at this time. However, the MGSL can be easily shortened to fit the 36. A dremel or a file will work.

    To modify your part for a G36 approx. how much does it need to be narrowed and where to narrow?

    Not "narrowed", shortened. My MGSL will fit and work in a G36, however the ends of the lock protrude out of the frame. Shorten the lock on either side to fit.

    Thanks for your kind "offer", but I already did over one year of testing of my MGSL before I released it, and have many, many testimonials from satisfied Glock shooters who paid for theirs. :whistling:

    No sir. The barrel is harder than the MGSL. In fact, the MGSL "wears-in" to the barrel with firing. Barrel Rockwell C hardness runs 63-67 RC, MGSL hardness runs 32-34 RC.
