I have a generation 2 model 17. I want to get a new frame for it so I can have the finger grooves and the rail. I've heard that GlockMeister has them, but can you get them from the factory? I don't care about keeping my old frame so trade-in's are fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Yes Glock factory will upgrade your frame. It will cost you $150.00 plus tax. there #(770)432-1202 ask for tech services.

Now this is just RUMOR but I heard that Glockmeister lost their FFL for importing firearms without a license(thus no more receivers on their web site). Its just RUMOR and I don't know for sure but I'm trying to find out.

I got a new G19 frame from Glockmeister about one week before they mysteriously shutdown their sales of frames and pistols. New frame with all internal parts was like $212. I got this to create a standalone "22 cal Glock" by adding my AA kit to it.

I say sell the Gen 2 and buy a new GLOCK. No need to destroy a perfectly good frame just for finger grooves. Also alot of people prefer the Gen 2 frame vs. the Gen 3 frame.

I used to feel that way until GLOCK replaced my gen 2 frame with a gen 3 frame.
Now I want an OD gen 3 frame for my other G21 - the gen 3 frame is that good.

+1

I love the Gen 3 frame alot and its like it was made for my hand. Im just thinking for all the people I hear who like GLOCK w/o the finger grooves.

+1 There's always someone looking for one cause they hate the finger grooves

Thing is I bought the gun only because it was $250 in mint condition. I hate 9mm and I only bought the gun because it was a good deal. An extra $150 still sets me below the cost of a new gen. 3 Glock 17. I'd rather save the money I would've spent buying a new Glock and spend it on a Bar Sto threaded barrel and a AAC Evolution Suppressor.

I am thinking about doing the same thing for a suppressed .22.

I called them about the same thing for my G23. Glock said it would take 3-4 weeks get to your new frame.
