Is the slide catch a required component of the glock series? I have a 17 that I had tracked down for a project and was wondering if I can just remove the slide catch and everything still function properly?

thanks.

I think the base of the slide catch acts as a "spacer" for the trigger assembly.  Without it, the trigger (and transfer bar) will shift left.  This could cause engagement issues between the transfer bar and sear

So it would work if you used a correct sized washer to space it out. That's an interesting ideal, but for what purpose?

Just for a Carbine kit that I haven't got to work nor the interest to mess with.
