First Look: Kragos Glock-Compatible Slide from CMC Triggers

posted on November 12, 2020

The new Kragos Glock-compatible slide from CMC triggers are built with victory and strength in mind, much like that of the Greek god that is their namesake. The Kragos Slide epitomizes CMC's reputation for producing premium aftermarket Glock parts and accessories. The sleek design and enhanced aesthetics of the Kragos slide improve accuracy and performance, without sacrificing reliability or concealment.

The Kragos slide is manufactured to tighter tolerances than factory slides for increased consistency in barrel lockup, which improves accuracy. The slide is constructed from 17-4 stainless-steel billet inside of CMC’s state-of-the-art facility. The slides are then heat-treated to H900 42-44RC and coated with a Diamond-Like-Carbon (DLC) finish for added corrosion resistance and durability. The DLC coating provides a balanced combination of low coefficient friction and high micro-hardness, making it the well-suited upgrade in high wear applications.

The Kragos features a wraparound scalloped serration pattern to improve the grip during slide manipulation, such as press checking the chamber or clearing a malfunction. The 45-degree chamfer edge on the slide eases holster ingress and egress, reducing snags on gear. All slides come with standard Glock sight cuts, tritium night sights and pre-cut optic pocket. This setup allows for the easy, secure, low-profile mounting of any optic that shares an RMR footprint.  

The Kragos Slide accepts factory or aftermarket barrels and parts, making it an easy upgrade for a factory Gen 3 Glock 17 or Glock 19 pistols, as well as custom gun builds built on the Polymer 80 frames.
