Who needs an OEM drawing or solid model?
Just reverse engineer the GLOCK model frame that you want to copy on your Coordinate Measuring Machine and create your own blueprint.
From there, write the CNC program, purchase needed tooling, custom grind the tooling with needed radii and shapes for the internals of frame. You may be able to get away with standard corner-rounding end mills for the external radii, but you may have to custom grind those also.
If you are going to run this program on a 5-axis, you can run it like a lollipop, which shouldn't require much in the way of special work-holding tooling, but if you are planning on running this on a 3-axis, you're going to need to plan on making some tooling to hold the frame while machining in multiple set-ups.
Quite simple really.
