Have at it I'm ready.
Hey ya all. I have a second generation G23. I love the gun but want a light mounted on it. Obviously, the second gen does not have that ability... unless... I notch into the frame...?
From what I've seen with newer generations with rails is that the material there is no thicker than what I have now so cutting into it should not weaking it...?
What'a ya think?
I think you should be o.k. Tony. If nothing else it won't cost us anything if you make a mistake. Just kidding.
I was considering getting a G27 and modifying it for a CQB Standoff (yes I got one while they were on the market) The frame should withstand anything you mount to it as long as you don't get carried away on the diameter of the holes or grooves.
Let me know how everything goes. If nothing else I will get the G23 and forgo the G27.
You're a brave man to start whittling away on your Glock.
I think I'd stick with Duct Tape and twine.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
I have allready did a semi stipling job which went well. I'll wait until I get what I want to mount first. If it doesn't work I can always bring home some plumbers putty from work and patch it.
In addition to cutting the cross slot, I believe you'll also have to reshape the sides of the frame. Make very sure you have sufficient width there to reshape before you start cutting. I am not sure you do.
Well ... ? What happen ... ?
I wouldn't do it ......but I'm curious to see if you will .....

As you can see a factory Glock rail is pretty stout, my Streamlight isn't going anywere.

I don't know. Too many want me to do it just to do it and see if I screw it up. I'll wait a while. Maybe just buy a XD instead.
I was torn between wanting you to and trying to stop you.
I think you chose wisely.
Let us know if you change your mind.
