As long as it's the same caliber and not a 3.8 Compact the frames should be the same.

I have a 3.8" Full size. Although, the frame length appears to be the same as the compact by comparing images online. I suppose I will have to search for the frame measurements for both.

And yes, if it works for the Compact, it'll work on the 3.8 full-size, too. Those share commonality except for the length of the grip.
The slide and barrel from my 5.25 fit my 3.8 compact. I didn't fir any live rounds, but it dry fired without issue.

I've swapped the slides and frames of my 4.5 and my 3.8 compact. Made a standard 3.8 (with full length grip) and a compact 4.5. All the components fit perfect.

And though I highly doubt there would be any problems, I didn't brave actually shooting them.The 4.5 is my duty gun, and if I ruined both components, both guns would be out of service. Can't take that risk for to ease my curiosity.
