I don't know much about Glocks. What is the difference between a G17 and a G19 ? (Yeah, I know, "2")

As far as these things go, is this a good one? How many different ones are there? I'm guessing this is a pretty good deal. So, this means you need to drill some holes, then buy a slide and a trigger?

Thanks.

The G17 has a longer slide and grip. Its standard mag capacity is 17 to the G19's 15. (The G34 has an even longer slide.)

Drill some holes. Remove some plastic. Smooth it all out. Add some extra rail-thingies. Assemble a lower as normal (dozens of videos out there - hey, I thought Youtube was gonna ban those. LOL) and attach working assembled slide/barrel. Insert mag. Gobang!

Depends on the holster. I know that you can't use a P80 in those CAA MCK things. Very specific to a Gen 3-5 Glock frame. And slide.

P80s generally dont work with kyex holsters. They may if its light bearing where the kydex grips the light or the safariland als where it grips the ejection port.

For the peeps who were considering building a short barreled bolt action rifle or pistol. Or any rifle I suppose. Remington receiver sale.

So, what is needed beyond this are a stock and barrel? Was looking around for a shot-out .223 something, for a possible project (.20 Vartarg or .20 Practical).

I'm guessing there are "stock" stocks out there that people have upgraded from and unloading, and the barrel would be a special order anyhow:

Damn, in better times I would grab that 223 receiver set to do up a 8-9" 300blk. That would super cool.

There are stock stocks for sure, options from Hogue and Magpul are popular, Brownells carries H-S, a little higher end. I think most people use a chassis setup when they go this route. There are chassis out there from bargain to insane. MDT is a middle of the road, the Q Side Chick is a little more money, AI are the premium ones that come to mind.

I did it, grabbed a 223 and a 308. I will probably sit on them before I build it out. If 8.6CM becomes a thing I will do that first.
I have a spare stripped receiver for my big boi gas gun just in case that ever becomes a thing.

Ok, but seriously - I kind of want to slap one of these in 223 onto a Magpul Hunter. Any reason to do that rather than just grab an equivalent Howa or Tikka? I'm going to burn money whether I like it or not...help me!

That looks like a pretty good deal. Kits are running 140-150. Slides run 200. Both for $250 seems good assuming the slide is AOK.

I'm looking for something to carry out in the woods, and it will probably be painted white.

If you want a project or want to build a short barreled bolt action it makes sense. As somebody noted a wildcat round or 20 Tactical they are good reasons. If you want a quality rifle for less money invested buy the Tikka.

Thank you. This spring, the project is becoming a better shot, so that decision just got easier.
