Brownells announced the release of new Glock pistol slides designed to drop onto factory Glock pistol frames with ease. The slides are also a perfect addition to any build kit for Polymer80's 80-percent Glock pistol frames, enabling users to put together a complete handgun with a wide range of parts and accessories available from the company.

The Brownells Glock pistol slides are made specifically for Gen3 Glock pistol frames. Models are available for the Glock G17, G19, G22 and G23 pistols, which are some of the most popular Glock handguns on the market today.

The new slides come complete with deep serrations on the front and back of the slide, enabling users to easily press-check their guns and perform other slide manipulations with confidence. The slides also come with a cutout located on the top face, which is designed to provide improved cooling while also providing a neat added aesthetic look to the gun. The missing material also serves to reduce the overall weight of the finished pistol.

The Brownells Glock pistol slides are machined to Glock's factory specifications from 17-4 stainless-steel billet and are finished with a nitride coating that ensures protection from corrosion and long-term wear. The slides are completely devoid of internal parts, allowing users to fill them with OEM internal parts from Glock or enhanced aftermarket components from Brownells, Lone Wolf Distributors, Zev Technologies and other companies on the market.

Another added option available to buyers of these aftermarket Glock slides is the ability to choose between standard dovetail cuts or a full slide cut for a reflex optic, such as the Trijicon RMR Type 2 reviewed on our website. The standard dovetail cut is the same as Glock factory cuts, so any aftermarket iron sights designed to fit Glock pistols will work on these slides. The RMR-cut slide also features standard dovetail cuts for iron sights, allowing owners to mount suppressor-height iron sights that co-witness with their mounted optic of choice.

The suggested retail price on the Brownells custom Glock pistol slides is $229.99.
