    If you were ever able to do that, and I'm not saying you could, you would in fact be buying a new gun. A Glock frame is the registered part of the weapon.

    You used to be able to buy Gen 3 frames to update older Glocks. At some point I am willing to bet you Will be able to buy gen4 frames as well.

    As was said before tho, the frame essentially is the fire arm. If you buy one it needs to be transferred in the same manner as a complete pistol would be.

    In a word, no.

    Because of the differences in the frame, the Gen3 upper will damage the frame. There are a couple threads on other forums documenting the damage.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    what benefits are you trying to get from the gen 4 frame? if it's a question of changing the grip profile to something else, I'd consider some of the work that Robar does. The double spring can be had from the glock store. oversized mag releases are also available. If you're left handed and want to switch your mag release around, my recommendation is to stop being left handed ;).

    if you're looking for a specific feature that the gen 4 offers, reasonable alternatives are available without the expense of a new gun. If the expense doesn't bother you, then seize this as an opportunity to buy a new gun!!!!
