    Hi so I just bought my very first Glock (and my second pistol ever) and I was wondering if a Gen4 slide will fit on a Gen3 Glock 19? I really like the Lantac slides (the Razorback) but the only option available is Gen4.

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask. I live in California so I had to get a gen 3.

    I don’t think it will work. I believe it has to do with the frame rails. You could always send out your slide and have it cut.

    It will not work. Gen 4's have a different recoil spring than the previous generations.

    I've seen on YouTube where people have took a dremel to their frame to mod it to accept a gen 4 slide, but I'm not doing that.

    Thank you so much. Ehh I found that video you're talking about and I'm considering it but I'm still a pretty hesitant. Ideally I'd like to find a gen3 slide but I haven't found one similar to the Lantac yet
