Dagger™ Compact vs Compact X Slide Assembly
The differences between the Dagger™ Compact and Compact X slide assemblies are,
- The Dagger™ Compact X slide assembly is not compatible with
an OEM Glock or aftermarket G17 frame. As the name
implies, the Dagger™ Compact X slide assembly is intended for compact frames
such as a G19 gen3 frame (e.g., Dagger™ Compact frame) and gen3-based
G19X/G45/G47 frame (e.g., Dagger™ Full Size - S frame). The Dagger™ Compact and
Compact X slide assemblies are also compatible with gen4-5 compact frames
with minor considerations.
² - In order for a G17 barrel to be compatible with a compact gen3 frame (e.g., Dagger™ Compact and Full Size - S frames), the barrel must have a G19 gen1-5 barrel "lug". With respect to an OEM Glock G17 barrel, this lug was first introduced with gen5. Aftermarket G19L barrels (e.g., Brownells 19LS barrel) may be compatible with the Dagger™ Compact X slide and Dagger™ Compact and Full Size - S frames.
Dagger™ Compact vs Full Size - S Frame
The differences between the Dagger™ Compact and Full Size - S frames are,
Dagger™ Full Size - S frame can be considered a gen3-based G19X/G45 frame
"clone". Per OEM Glock nomenclature, the G19X/G45 is a compact pistol,
specifically a compact crossover, not a full (or standard) size pistol.
Glock vs PSA Nomenclature
We have created two charts which organize all of the Glock 9mm pistol models and PSA Dagger™ 9mm pistol models based on the different frame sizes using the Glock nomenclature.
Note: The G19X frame is slightly different than the G45 frame. We assume the G45 and G47 share the same frame. For these reasons, we split "COMPACT CROSSOVER" into two columns, one for the G19X frame and one for the G45/G47 frame.
The following chart further illustrates that all four Dagger™ models involve compact frames (despite PSA's use of the term "Full Size - S").
