    I currently have a P220Carry, all nitron with SRT installed. I would like to get a full size now and to be different would like to try at the very least a SS slide. So my two favorite options are a regular 2-tone gun (SS slide, nitron aluminum frame) or the P220ST (all stainless - not the Elite though). I'm not a fan of the Elite's Beavertail but like the SRT so I would likely have the SRT added at the factory to whatever I get.

    So my question is this, if I bought the P220ST can I install the SS slide on my P220Carry's frame? And can I install the P220Carry slide on the SS frame? If so that would basically give me 4 options, my current setup with the P220Carry, a P220ST, a full size SS slide with aluminum frame, and a SS frame with Carry length slide. (Actually only the first 3 really appeal to me right now)

    I noticed that some P220ST's come with an internal extractor while others (maybe newer) guns have the external extractor so I'm not sure if that matters. My P220Carry has the external for what its worth.

    Might be an odd question but if the slides of different lengths are interchangeable on different frames, 4 configurations for the price of 2 guns is cool to me but I certainly wouldn't want to do this if it could possibly harm either gun.

    So if anyone has an answer or has done it I'd love to hear, or if you just want to tell me to stop messing around and get the P220ST I'd like to hear that too.

    Not a problem as long as you switch the locking blocks with the slide...you should be able to tell them apart by the number of indentations on the top of each block.

    The external extractor slides are newer production and offer more consistent extraction
