So I was wondering can you use a G22G4 lower (frame) with a G17G4 upper (slide)? Oh and the other direction G17G4lower with G22G4 upper??

It would make sense. FRom what I've heard, you can swap the slides but will also need to change out the Ejectors and use their respective mags.

I've never seen it in person. I've only heard of people doing it.

YMMV.

Yes. You can do that. I put a G38 slide on a G19 frame and it worked flawlessly.

Would you use a 19 frame and 23 slide as your carry weapon? Or vice versa?
I understand the only thing different is the ejector which wouldn't make a difference, right?

Some people say that you have to change it, or maybe its the extractor they say you have to change. I don't remember. But no, you don't have to change anything. It'll run just fine with just swapping out the slides. I've actually ran a g17 barrel in a g22 frame and slide and it worked just fine, just used my g17 mags. The barrel was a tiny bit loose but it didn't effect the cycling or anything.

could be the extractor, I don't remember.
But ok, next time at the range I'll swap slides from my 19 & 23 to test it out.

It's the ejector that has to be changed (sometimes).

But not when you are swapping entire slide right?
