I have a SF Gen 3 Glock 21/20 (I have two dedicated slide assemblies), and I discovered that the endo adapter is too large for the grip cavity. I would "prefer" to reduce the size of the male connector for the grip cavity, verses buying a non-short-frame glock.

Has anyone tried this and was able to say that the adapter didn't lose structural integrity due to too much material being removed?

I have an endo that was adapted to fit a Gen4 G41. A LOT of material was removed and it’s fine.

I’m surprised yours doesn’t fit the Gen 3. My guess is very little material will need to be removed.

He's got the SF frame, that's why it didn't fit. I did attempt to modify that endo to fit my 21 SF frame, with a lot of material removed as you point out and it was still never really right; the connection wasn't very solid and the pin hole is in the wrong place. I don't recommend using an Endo adapter on a 20/21 gen 3 SF frame based on my experience with it.

The standard (non-SF) gen 3 20/21 frames should fit the Endo directly with no modification, but of course the grip is larger.

Ah. Duh. I missed the SF. Dangers from multitasking and reading on a phone!

I modded my ENDO to fit my
Gen 4 17's. Well, one of them
anyway. I didn't like the pin
hole being that low so I drilled
a new one a little higher.

I have to leave it home on
some of my range trips,
because I have a tendency
to shoot it and not work with
my more conventional carry
pieces.
