    Good times.

    Now THIS is the Glock I’ve been waiting for. I’ve got a G17 frame cut to 19 length that I made myself, but I’ve been holding out hope for a factory option for YEARS. All the better if that “factory” is S.I. Can’t wait.

Well, being the the pirates we are, we're not to fond of the gov't getting all the the good shit to themselves, so, enter the SI-47 in Gen 3 and 5 configurations. This will also allow for new custom builds of the SI-47 pistol. Pre-orders will be open in April with expected delivery of all finish options available by early June

    I agree that the long slide/short frame is a great idea.

    But correct me if I'm wrong ... I understand that the Glock 47 is a Glock 45 frame (which has a full-sized frame and a Glock 19 slide) with a full-sized slide.

    The Glock 47 incorporates a full-size slide with a G45 frame. Tactical Life confirmed that the G47 has the same barrel length of a Glock 17. However, a G17 slide will not fit on the G47. The new pistol is also compatible with G19X, G17, G34 and G45 magazines.

    If S.I. releases a G17 length slide for the G19 length frame, I’m snapping it up in a heartbeat. Brownells has one. But I don’t want a Brownells slide... I want a Suarez slide. So I’m holding out for it.

    ok, here's the correction: a glock 17 slide on a glock 45 frame would be called a glock 17.

    a glock 47 is a 17 slide in length on a glock 19 frame
