    This started out as a used Gen 3 G20SF which I paid $600 for. It came with about 80 rounds of ammo, and extra LWD barrel and 2 holsters.

    After I shot the gun, I knew I had to do the Long Slide conversion so I sold the complete factory slide assembly and the extra barrel for $525.

    So I really only paid about $75 for a Gen 3 G20/21SF frame. I eventually used the Gen 3 frame on a Gen 2 G-21. I did this because I wanted the Gen 2 frame for the G20L project.


    The first phase was getting the long slide, for that I went with Bobby Carver. He built the slide from the following parts for less the $630:

    • Lone Wolf 10MM Long Slide, Blind Marked
    • Lone Wolf 6.61" Threaded Barrel
    • CARVER Custom 10MM Comp
    • Glock Internal Slide Parts
    • Engraving
    • CARVER Custom SS Guide Rod Assembly

    Once I received the slide from Bobby I realized that the Bull Nose profile on the front of the slide looked horrible with a comp sitting in front of it. Here is a picture of it:

    So I had a friend fill in the bull nose with TIG weld and then I machined it square.

    After I got that staright I ordered a C-More STS scope for $302 shipped. I was a perfect fir for this wider 10mm slide

    I did really know who I would pay to do the final mods but after a little research I went with Mark at L&M Precision Gun Works.

    He did all of the following work:


    • Timed the comp to the barrel
    • Machined the sides of the comp to match the barrel
    • Machined the rear of the slide for the C-More STS Scope
    • Ball milled the grove on the top of the slide that goes from the front of the slide and extends into the comp.
    • Machined the top hole to make the ends round instead of square-ish
    • Chamfered the bottom edges of the slide and the comp to make them match
    • Drilled 2 additional holes on the bottom of the slide, one on the comp and one behind the factory front sight hole
    • Machined the top of the barrel to remove the last traces of the LWD logo and then he polished it
    • Cerakoted the slide graphite black

    Mark was very easy to talk to and I was amazed at the turn around time and price

    I am extremely happy with it and the pictures do not do it justice.

    I can not wait to shoot this thing. Unfortunately all of the ranges are closed for Christmas but hopefully I be able to get to one after the first of the year.

    That thing is sick. Gratz man.

    I really would like to know how your comp works for you.
    I have a G20L too without the comp. Have a Leupold Delatpoint on top of mine.

    Are you getting any bent pins on yours? I've broken one already, I'm thinking of lightening up my slide.

    Once I hit the range I'll let you know


    I have to recover from the work on the slide before I spend some money ong the frame


    I only test fired it when I got it back from Bobby Carver so I haven't put enough rounds done range to bend any pins yet. I would like to know which pins you bent so I can keep my eye on them.

    I had a hard time getting a good side image of the G-20L but I finally found a way to capture the engraving on the side with some odd lighting and a good deal of editing to remove the background
