Gunsmith Slides from Suarez International

    Those looking to customize their Glock slide and its fit to the frame can now rejoice. Gunsmith-ready slides are now available from Suarez International. Made from 416 Stainless Slide Material, the slides are offered unmarked in the standard Glock shape, albeit without any cocking serrations. Slides do come pre-milled for factory-style front and rear sights.

    However, I do contest the “American Standard”. While I fully support local manufacturing, quality and specs can be completed well universally. Just look to Toyota vehicles.

    Those interested in bare slides can pick them up direct from Suarez for $179. Large discounts are available for OEMs looking to private label. 


    Description from Suarez:
