    Does a subcompact frame with weapon mount rails exist?

    I thought I saw one somewhere. Do you guys know if one exists? Thanks.

    Yea, I wanted an OD green G34 when I got mine, but I couldn't get my hands on 1 - I saw one finally TWO months after I bought mine. Too late by then


    I had a G26 for a while before I got my P99c - so, I knew it had no rail...

    The Springfield XDSC has a mounting rail. Some come with a light to fit on it.

    Yes, the P99c and XD compact have the rails. The M&P compact does too, if I remember correctly. Looks like the PX4 compact will have it as well...

    I assume you're talking about GLOCKs. The larger frame GLOCK subs DO have rails on them: The G29 10mm and the G30 .45ACP. The smaller calibers/frames don't have enough "real estate".

    You can have an aftermarket job done, David Bowie of Bowie Tactical Concepts was featured in the latest issue of "Custom Combat Handguns" his work appears to be first class. I do not own any modified Glocks...I like'em straight out of the box, but if you want a sub with rails, someone could do it for you.

    Sorry, not true. Although the G29/G30 farme is arguably LESS concelable, it is still a sub-compact and DOES have rails.

    If you compare the Glock 23, 30 and 27 you will see that the 30 is close in size to the 23 - not to the 27. Not a sub-compact to me but still a nice CCW.

    That's why I acknowldged that they're LESS concelaable...Regardless, though, they are still subcompacts. Unfortunately, the general rule is the larger the round, the larger the platform.

    I have had few concelability issues w/ my G30. (Granted, you won't catch me in a bathing suit!

    Sorry to put bullets in dead horses.

    But, an excellent sub-compact with accessory rail is the newly released Beretta PX4 Storm sub-compact.

    just my .02
