Anyone know if this is possible?

I would really like rails on my G21.

Thanks

Glock can replace your old gen 1 frame with a new one. I believe with the same serial number. Greg

contact GLOCK about a frame upgrade.

If you are like me you like the idea of getting rails, but don't like the idea of hard finger grooves. I feel you pain.

I've seen lots of Glocks like that, especially the bigger ones. All used though. They must have done a run of them around 2000 or something. Transitional, with features from gen 2 and 3.

I got my G17 in 99 right before the change so I consider myself lucky. I'll take the old school "no rail" with houges in favor of finger grooves anyday.

Glock did do a run of what is now called "Generation 2.5". These were only on the G20s and 21s. It included no tac rail, from Generation 2, but did include the finger grips, which would be prominent on Generation 3 guns.

I have a Gen 1 Glock 19 and absolutely love it. My roommate has the same model in gen 3 and after firing both, I actually like the gen 1 setup better. I do like the rails on his though....

Did they make a 1st gen Glock 21?

I thought the only 1st gen Glocks were 17s and 19s.

Glock does it. The SN changes. You get something of the form Gxxxx.

go to Glockmeister.com, they have the frames there for sale, you send them your old one and they destroy it, you get a new frame but with new serial number. seems exspensive to me, just buy a new gun.

Can Glock do it and keep the s/n the same? Just curious, because I'd have to take it off my NYC permit and put it back on if the s/n changes. That's a big PIA.

I also need the SN the same because MA doses not allow the sale of new Glocks among most other pistols. I hate this state and no I cannot move. Also does anyone know Glocks e-mail? Thanks.

You can trade your old frame in at Glockmeister and they will give you a new 3rd gen frame. Your old frame will be destroyed. Check it out at Glockmeister's website.

Glockmeister frame swap

ETA: Sorry... didn't read the whole thread. Someone already suggested this.

I changed out my 1 gen G22 for a 3 gen with glockmeister and kept the same s/n. Give Ben a call and talk to him. Also you will have to buy a new locking block if you change out your reciever. Ben will do that to.

$155 for Glockmiester to switch frames I light rail is not that important too me. Does Glock do it for less?

For $155, that ain't "give"ing you anything! For that kind of money, the new frame should come with it's own serial number and you should be able to keep both.

Your better off selling your Glock to someone who likes the old style frame (thus keeping it from being destroyed) and using that money towards a brand new 3rd gen Glock.

I have both 2nd and 3rd gen G23s, and use the 2nd gen for my carry gun because I love the non finger groove grip.
