The G17 Gen 5 MOS FS has a slide of 7.32 inches… roughly half an inch longer so we’re not talking enormous differences. However, when it comes to grip, size is critical.
The Gen3 Slide, at the front where the slide retains the Recoil Spring Assembly, is smaller than the Gen4 Slide. So, while a Gen3 slide will fit into a Gen4 Frame, there is quite a gap between the Slide and the Frame. The reverse is not true, a Gen4 Slide will not fit into a Gen3 Frame.

Some people absolutely hate the finger grooves. Some people love them. Some people don't care. You...well, you'll have to figure that out for yourself.
