Yep, the G34 up there runs a steel slide (when it's a G34), APS CO2 magazines and a second-generation Stratos. The cyclic speed and recoil is (as usual) orders of magnitude better than with liquid-refill propellants, and even with the Guarder steel-specific spring and one of the included recoil buffers I feel like it could use a stiffer spring.

I have also run it with CO2 with its PGC G17 slide (which also has a Stratos), and it smashes the slide into the frame so hard the impact points on the slide literally squashed ~1mm at the impact points. Adding a second recoil buffer stopped that, but I won't be running it on CO2 unless it's got the steel slide or it's really cold - it's just not necessary.

The BBU does come with warnings not to use it with gases over a certain pressure and YMMV - I have barely put 5 magazines through it in this configuration.

Can you make a video of the steel slide/Stratos/co2 combo?

Just so you know, Recover Tactical makes a rail system that fits on the G26 called the GR26. It's a small rail but it takes minutes to install and can be removed with zero damage to your pistol. I bought them for the G17 and 19. I also purchased their GCH Charging handle and installed it on 2 of my TM/Guarder G17 builds and they are easy to install, no modifications are required and they work great. You should check out their web site.

And here I am, again, with G-series magazines compatibility.

Can a G34/17 WE mag fit inside a G19 WE? I am aware the G17/34 will be a bit longer, but that's not an issue.

Ok, so I found the answer and it is yes. :D

Can confirm anything Tm/KJW/WE will fit and work.

Any longer mag will fit in a smaller pistol. My G26 will take the 50rd long mags nicely

Dynamic Precision has a comp that attaches to the slide. This way it does'nt add any weight to the barrel or have any effect on the pistols slide cycling across the barrel. No threaded barrel needed.

Seen loads of that on IG. Was it hard to get it fitted?

It was not a walk in the park, to say the least. I significantly carved out the area behind the slide, shortened/smoothed the beavertail on the pistol itself, enlarged the crosspin hole (hence the machine screw), and removed some material where it wraps around the sides of the grip.

I'm guessing most, possibly all of that could have been avoided if I had just used a Gen 4 frame as it was designed for, rather than the Gen 3 frame I had, but by the time I realized what I was getting into it was too late to turn back.

Ah okay. Didn’t know it was designed for gen4. How much are they and who in the UK stocks them, if you don’t mind me asking?

Gen5 19x in tan, with marking, ordered from KY.

Also, been hankering to make my G17 the less tactical one. But it has an HK3P traded frame. What do people reckon those are worth nowadays?

$259 US and currently only sold by Flux Defense, directly through their website. It looks like they currently don't ship outside the US, unfortunately.

PmK4U4.jpgMy first build on a TM G19, just waiting on guarder to release a frame... Slide is from Nova and I used a dremel with fine grit sanding buff to take out the outer layer that annoyed me..
