    Which Glock Models have similar frames?

    Hello everyone, I was wondering, which Glock Models have similar frames. I know all glocks have kind of the same look but I noticed the other day at my local gun shop that the Glock 19 looked practically the same as my Glock 23. The sales person at the counter confirmed to me that both of those models are practically identical, except one has a higher caliber and therefore has a wider frame. This got me curious to know which Glock models have identical frames. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
    Remember as a rule of thumb in defensive carry...your intention is always to STOP....not to hurt, however; in a gun fight, its either me or them.....and Im sure as hell that it will NOT be me.

    From memory so forgive anything missed:

    Full size frames:
    17/22/31/37

    20/21

    Compact frames:
    19/23/32/38

    SubCompact frames:
    26/27/33/39

    29/30

    Then you have the Tactical/Practical:
    34/35

    Slimline Frame
    36

    I'll add in:

    Fullsize--17L and 24
    Compact--25*
    Subcompact--28*

    Then, there's also the G20/21/29/30 SF (Short Frame, not slim frame as people often say--the only slim frame Glock is the G36)--basically, same thing as their non-SF models, just with some of the backstrap removed for a shorter reach to the trigger (and, the subcompact SF models (29, 30) also have light rails where their non-SF brethern do not...).


    *--Yeah, I know, the 28's are LEOnly in the US, and G25's not available at all...but, you know...for the sake of accuracy...

    In that case one may also include the 18/18C, which I believe is also full sized :)
