Guarder new TM Glock GEN3 frames

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this deserves it's own news thread really but I think this looks pretty cool from an OCD point of view 😛

Guarder are doing an updated more realistic/detailed lower frame for TM Glock GEN3 17/22/34.

Complete lower with upgraded/steel internals and new style inner chassis (realistic slide rails, locking block, and, the part number (?) in the stamped in the frame edge! :D ). Oh and they are using hex-head screws now instead of Philips-heads 😛 

Of course I wish it were for the Glock 19 series but should be coming soon enough hopefully.

Inner frame look very similar also guarder glock mags look very similar to vfc. I wouldn't be surprised if they share molds at least.

Anyhow why another gen 3? We are on gen 5 glock these days.

The front rail area is just ultra realistic looking, not necessary VFC-related and it's still Gen 3 TM system, not that I'm complaining, but they already have whole gun worth of upgrade parts in their lineup so it's weird releasing just half the gun.

The TM is the most popular and prevalent version of the G series. So many of them out there and so many other brands copy the TM system. I have upgraded a few TM and KJW G17 anf G19/23 pistols over the past couple of years using Guarder parts. Seems I'm always rebuilding something.

Depending on the price, I can see myself buying a couple of these and running aluminium slides (steel didnt work great for me-too heavy-big performance drop).

Note the "trade" on the grip though. Thats not Glock. Likely Guarder.

Such a pointless product really. From a skirmishing point of view no one is going to care what the internal rails look like.

They could have made a killing with a correctly traded gen4 frame, like HK3P had.

I’ll hold out for the 19x from WE

Something tells me the trade on the grip is just for show and to stop cyberscum creaming their pants. They're not going to go to all that effort and ruin it like that.

Yeh, all Guarder product pictures either have blank or fake trades now a days but still come with full Glock markings. So just for show.

Funny thing is the guarder doesn’t feel anything like the genuine article, having handled one.

To date my HK3P frame is the most realistic in terms of the actual plastic finish and texture

Having got basically this assembled from the parts available from Guarder individually (albeit with a few Guns Modify parts) I actually quite like the idea of this product. If you're going all-in on a Glock build you're going to be using the majority of these parts anyway (unless you're going mainly Guns Modify, and only using Guarder to make up the difference). If there's a decent cost saving buying them all in one box rather than separately - especially since you otherwise end up having to hunt down parts from 10 different retailers and getting stung for shipping every time - then I think it's a useful product. The biggest saving, of course, is in never needing to buy a donor TM.

I bought my Glock used with most of the upgrades already installed, so I don't know the total cost of the gun to its previous owner, but I do know it was built on a TM donor (based on the few remaining TM parts I replaced - the only remaining factory part is #G17-19, the front chassis retaining screw). I would be extremely surprised if the amount he paid for all those parts, even without including the TM donor, was less than double the cost of this complete kit.

Nah, it's basically just most of their existing Glock parts catalogue preassembled - all of those parts are TM-spec. I'd also much prefer to see Guarder going forwards to Gen.5 rather than backwards to Gen.2...

I reckon they figure there's just too many slide/BBU/sight combinations (even just in their own catalogue) to bother trying.

This is awesome, $169 usd from KIC, or $1099 Hong Kong street price ($140 usd), will definitely be picking one up to complete another steel build, will work out so much cheaper than my previous builts factoring in shipping costs...

Rainbow8 is easier to buy from than KIC since you have to email and get quotes and what not from KIC. Also KICs listed web price of $5250 TWD (~$169 USD) is local for Taiwanese only or direct web site purchases. For international orders they add on a little bit to the price.

$1200 HKD (~$153 USD) @ Rainbow8 : https://www.rainbow8.com/collections/guarder-new-release
