    I've been thinking about a new pistol(as always), but I haven't seen any guns with what I want. I would like a full size barrel with a compact, bobbed frame. I like the length of a full size barrel, but for concealed carry I would like the lower profile frame since that is the hard part for me to conceal. Do yall know if anybody makes one of these or if I'm just gonna have to order parts and send it off to Wilson to fit and tune?

    check out website of arizonaresponsesystems. he does glock "longslide" mods which sound exactly like what you are looking for. i have had him do several mods for me in the past and recommend him without hesitation

    Thanks for the responses guys. If I have one of these made I'll probably call Wilson and see what they can do for me. I want one of thiers any way. I've got plenty of time to think about it since I just bought a new welder and still have to pay outrageous tuition.

    full size 1911's rule but are kind of hard to conceal. wilson or any of the top manufacturers will build you any thing you want within reason.

    I've found out that they cant make a compact bobtail. Not enough room for the mainspring.
