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:

This slide is offered to local gunsmiths wishing to build up and brand slides and pistols for their own companies or organizations. They are made up as identical copies of the factory item, out of properly heat treated and bead blasted 416 Stainless Steel. Made in the USA to American Standards. These are made in Arizona, not in SE Asia. The slides are totally unmarked without logo, serrations, or milling. Same profile as OEM with round nose front profile like Glock 26 and 34. They have provision to install all factory parts, standard sights, and barrels and install onto a frame.

  • No Logos or Cocking Serrations.
  • No external markings at all.
  • Standard with Rear Dovetail Cut and Front Sight Slot.
  • Similar rounded edge profile.
  • Same round nose front profile as Glock 26, and 34.
  • Interior dimensions are exact to OEM factory tolerances.
  • Made from Heat Treated 416 Stainless Steel Billet Stock.
  • Guaranteed to work with all OEM parts and accessories.
  • Provided in Bead Blasted Finish.

    These Suarez RMR Glocktards are amazing.
    They justify spending an additional $1,000 on slides, serrations, stippling, triggers, etc. on an obviously dated design but will vehemently beat you down when you dare pose the question why the P320 is a better out if the box system for people who dont like the grip angle and lack of features on a out of the box Glock.

    Always entertaining reading the posts. So to answer them in no particular order -

    1). The notorious Gabe Suarez -

    2). That they are remarked Lone Wolf they aren't. These are not Korean imports, but made in the USA by tattooed American veterans (in Arizona), properly machined and heat treated from 416 stainless steel.

    3). That I have an ego. Well, of course I do. Who doesn't. Although I like to call it "Overachieving Confidence Syndrome"...OCS? I like it!!

    4). That they are half the cost of a Glock? Unless you are paying $350 for a new Glock, nope. The starting price on these is $175. The link is right here - http://www.onesourcetactica...

    Companies can buy more for a lesser price. And I will say that they outshine and outclass all the plain wrap Hyundai-esque slides out there in all categories.
