G22 frame chopped to a G23 size

I'm wanting to cut a Gen II G22 frame down to a G23 size. I have smaller hands and am just more comfortable with the mid-size Glock frame. I want to end up with a full-sized slide and a mid-sized frame...that will handle both .40 and .357 sig!

Does anyone have any experience doing this and how did you go about deciding how to do it, finish it, etc.

Any information and/or suggestions will be welcome! I'm not afraid of tackling the transition, however, I would like to hear from individuals who have done it themselves and any mistakes that were made (so I can avoid them) or things you wish you had done differently in the process.

Thank you!

It can be done and it is a popular alteration.

Google will do right by you as far as getting information and videos on how to accomplish this alteration.
