    Looking at a Lonewolf slide for Glock 23 to hopefully do a no problem install on my Gen. 2 frame. Lonewolf lists their slides as being Gen 3. Any advice pro or con would be appreciated. Thanks! Art G.

    As long as your Gen 2 frame is from a G23, you will be OK. If it is a G19 frame, then it is a 2-pin and is not compatible with the .40 cartridge.
