Default Gen 5 Glock 17 MOS

Is there anyone that can turn a gen 3 Glock 17 into a gen 5 Glock 17 mos without the ambi slide lock? Who does the best slide cut for a delta point pro and who can turn the frame into a gen 5 frame that doesnít feel like sandpaper?

Would it be better to just buy a gen 5 Glock 17 mos for $1,500 or would it be better to get a gen 3 Glock 17 then send the slide and frame for work to make it similar to the gen 5?

Are you basically asking who can mill your slide for an RMR? Because if so, just about most companies can or you can just buy a Gen 3 slide that is milled.

And frame work is a dime a dozen, good work is a bit more rare.

FWIW, IMO get one of the after market slide assemblies that have the RMR cut outs.

Should I get an 80% glock lower? Iam planning to put it on my CCW Permit. What would be the process to serialize it and register it to the doj?

I would not suggest that. Just get the glock you have milled if you like and add to your CCW.

I guess the hard part would be finding someone that can make the frame almost similar to the gen 5 frame. I don’t want finger grooves

You can do it yourself or send out your gen 3 frame to get finger grooves and back strap cut down making it near identical to a gen 5. Then send your slide out for an optic cut.

Also, I've seen gen 5 mos way cheaper then $1500 on here, you can find them for under a $1000.

The ship has sailed on the 80% lower. Please read up the law.

The best part of gen 5 Glocks are the internal changes imo. Particularly the trigger return spring and slide lock spring change. The frame mag cutout sucked for me, but the removal of the finger grooves was a plus. I got rid of my gen 5 when the 19x arrived. To me itís finally Glock perfection. Any well known competent smith can do an RMR cut and remove finger grooves on a gen 3 for you if thatís all you are looking for.

Just buy the Gen5

You can get one for <$1000

They have a better barrel, trigger, ambi controls, and improved magazines.

OP, have you handled and shot a Gen 5? If not, I suggest you take a road trip to free America and test one. You may find you don't like it. I hate the Gen 5 triggers. They very quite a bit from gun to gun, but most have no wall. The trigger pull is like sticking your finger into a pile of mashed potatoes then bang. I guess some like that, but I prefer the trigger have a wall that I can repeatably stage. To each his own.

Thankfully, the Gen 5 MOS versions and G45 ditched that horrible cut-out in the front of the frame, but they still require a wider grip at the bottom of the frame than you may be used to with a Gen 4 or 5. If you are a lefty, you might appreciate the ambi slide stop. However, that's not a big deal if you slingshot the first round.

The "marksman" barrel on the Gen 5 still doesn't allow you to shoot lead according to Glock, so BFD. If you shoot a lot of lead, you'll still need an aftermarket barrel.

The new coatings look nice, but they are more slippery than the previous melonite coating. That said, the Gen 5 MOS has front serrations whereas the Gen 4s generally do not (there was a limited edition Gen 4 with slide serrations, but I don't recall whether it had the MOS system).

In a nutshell, that's why I suggested you get a Gen 4 MOS. There really isn't a whole lotta difference IMO.
