    I've heard they're great! I've been thinking of getting a longslide when I get my new Tupperware toy

    Wow PP! With the reliability of a Glock frame this would be pretty darn nice.
    Any chance of getting a group buy on this?

    would you have to buy the slide parts as well? or could you just use the ones from the original slide?

    I am hoping so. The only thing extra I am going to pick up is a set of night sights.

    I wonder if the same slide that fits the glock 27 would fit the Glock 33?

    Check out the link to Glockmeister. Good info on the various frame and slide swap combos.

    Can anyone else think of anything I might want to pick up?

    I'm lost here. First, to me a Glock is a very good basic go-bang. I don't want to get so much money tied up in one to where I could have had a higher-end gun for the same price.

    Next, I like all-black guns. I don't want something that reflects light if I have to pull it. That means I'd have to parkerize that slide or something.

    If I buy a basic Glock with factory night sights it's going to cost under $550. That's it for me for a Glock.

    It's not that hard to get $1,000 tied up in a Glock. It's not that hard to get that much tied up in a Ruger 10/22 (with optics) either. I've just never been up for that.

    Not to deliberately rain on the parade, but Glock + slide + sights + bluing + small parts + labor sends me in a whole different direction with my money.

    I agree that the gun will be nice though, with someone else's money, LOL. :thumbup:

    To answer your own question ask yourself this one...Where else am I going to find a polymer framed gun with a stainless slide, an overall height of less than 4.2", an overall length of under 6.3", 10 round capacity, night sights, the reputation for toughness Glock has, that is as easy to find parts for, and is chambered in the .357sig round for under $750. :)

    This is a little bit bigger, but has a 14rd cap :D (and is stainless)

    Longer, taller, less established (reviews are mixed), and I personally think they are a little choppy looking design wise. I much prefer the simple lines of the Baby Glocks. :)

    But have you tried a chronograph to see if you are actually getting any decent velocity out the short barrel ;)

    The .357sig does pretty darn good out of the G33. Way more than adequate for SD. :)

    Not to throw the thread of track but here is a quick quote from a thread I did on some ballistics testing a friend and I did with our SD guns and ammo.

    I didnt mean to sound like I was dissing the .357, its just that some high pressure cartridges don't perform as well as advertised out of a short barrel.

    That is why we tested for ourselves. I was surprised at how well they all did out of the subcompact guns. The biggest surprise to me was that the .357sig out performed the .40S&W. :)
