    Interesting! I never knew there was a slide adapter. Does it attach to the frame or the slide?

    The Glock 26 has always had the dual recoil spring (starting with Gen3 or 2.5 as some refer to them) so it’s frame has always been closer to the full size/compact size frames of Gen4 than the Gen3.

    The parts on that form are a limited subset of Glock parts - Glock decided any part that doesn’t require removing pins they’ll sell directly to the public anything that requires removing pins is only sold directly to armorers (indirectly through dealers).

    The items on the non-armorer form can also be purchased from Glock online at their US store. https://store.teamglock.com
