Glock 20 chopped to a Glock 29 "Longslide"

Has anyone done this?

If not, who has thought about it and not done it, and why?

I just jumped into 10mm with both feet--two custom Deltas and one of the limited production Kimbers--after several years of waffling.

When I was last in Phoenix, it seemed that everyone shooting a Glock either had a duty gun cut down (22 to 23, 17 to 19 dimensions) or a carry gun-sized Glock cut down (23 to 27, etc) or was planning to have one done. A few had had 21's with frames cut down to '30 dimensions, often with grip reduction/recontouring as well.

This would be, even on a new 20, a reasonable custom gun project. A quick scan of CAC (here in southeastern PA) and ROBAR price lists indicates that with frame modifications, front cocking serrations added to the slide (a personal preference), and a slide refinish this custom project might come in under $500. With a match barrel from Jarvis or BarSto, it would probably be about $700 or so.

What do you gentlemen think?

I carry one built by Dane. It is simply a great gun. The grip has been reworked too, it is the perfect carry glock, imho.

'29 Longslide

Thanks, Bruce.
Did 10-round mags need any tuning ?
Do you use the Sherer or Pearce extended floorplates/finger rests?
My only, brief experiment with a used '29 found it to be everything NOT usually said about Glocks: unreliable, inaccurate, and unacceptable for everyday carry.
I'd had three '21s over the years but sold them because of the difficulty in carrying a pistol so large (and I made a modest profit on the high-cap mags after the so-called Crime Bill passed) that was only indifferently accurate compared to my 1911s.

Not sure what Dane did to the mags, but they work. Frankly, the thing has an ugly G20 mag hanging out its tail most of the time I am in the woods with it.

I have a couple G29's and mine are very good pistols. The grips on those glocks need significant work though, imho, before glock can say they sell a good pistol...the grips are too fat, no matter the size of hand.

10 mm glock

I like the sound of this longslide version of a Glock 29---10mm's kick ass. Can somebody hook me up with a smith that can do this???---I have hi-cap LEO mags--will they still work if I want to carry them as spares?Thanks all---this is great stuff
