    Hoping someone on here might know for sure. Tried a good ol google search and could not find a definitive answer. My question is, will a glock 26 gen 3 slide work on a gen 4 frame? I know the recoil springs are similar if not identical. I might be able to get a used gen 3 slide assembly for dirt cheap and I thought of building it on a gen 4 frame(I like the grips better). Thanks in advance.

    It will (I think), but the cutout on the front of the frame for the recoil spring is larger on the Gen 4 to accommodate the larger dual-stage recoil spring. There will be a gap with a Gen 3 slide.

    Wait, the Gen 3 subcompacts already had the dual-stage recoil spring. You should be fine.
