I am betting the answer is no but wanted to check. I wanted to mate my .22 slide to a lower.

Will someone post the code section that Prohibits this?

Thanks

Follow Up: The answer is NO! Not unless you are exempt.

As far as I know, if you can borrow an upper to do the DROS and demo then sure. Not sure if you could get by with the 22 slide, but I don't see why not.

Just the frame is not on the roster of compliant handguns. If somebody local has just the frame, you can PPT it, or if you are roster exempt, you can buy one out of state.

What I'm saying is if you buy a gen 3 G17 frame and borrow someone's G17 slide for the DROS, you can get one no problem. The frame IS the gun, and a gen 3 Glock IS on the roster. You just have to have a complete gun to DROS and do the safety demonstration.

EDIT: I was looking into getting one awhile back. This is the best price I found, just didn't bother finding someone's slide: GlockStore (http://glockstore.com/pgroup_descrip/383_Slides+%26amp%3B+Frames/8162_Glock+Factory+Frames/?return=%3ftpl%3Dindex%26category_id%3D383%26_Slid es%2B%26amp%3B%2BFrames%2F)

I've bought 2 Glock lowers from Glockmeister in Arizona. They shipped them to OC ARMORY; I took an upper over for the waiting period and the safety check. Not a problem.

I doubt anyone in California would sell you a lower.

Here is the thread on my G19 build.

Notice..Just got an email from GLOCKMEISTER and they have frames on sale for $189. Better hurry they sell out fast.

Good luck
