FMK Firearms is set to unveil a NEW series of Elite Race Pistols to the public at SHOT Show 2018. They will boast what they are calling an Elite Trigger, textured frame with a shock absorbing back-strap and a beveled magwell. The premier component of these pistols though will be the slide. It is custom designed with a cut-out for a Vortex Venom or Trijicon RMR to go directly on it, it takes Glock® compatible iron sights and it employs front and rear slide serrations as well as the slide top being hollowed out for balance and curb appeal.
FMK Firearms provides all of us with a further in-depth, short rundown of their new series of Elite Race Pistols:
The FMK Elite 9mm is ergonomically built to comfortably fit both large and small hands. The barrel is engineered to sit low for superior point and shoot accuracy and reduced muzzle flip. Designed with a Shock Absorbing Back-Strap which softens recoil by one full caliber. The Elite trigger has a quick light trigger pull that features drop free magazine release. Sight system is Glock® compatible, 3rd party sights are easy to install, so feel free to select your favorite sights! New textured frame with beveled magwell for speed loading. The new custom designed slide allows mounting of any Vortex Viper or Trijicon RMR optic right to the slide without any mounting plates.
FMK Firearms will be offering 4 variations within the new Elite Race Pistols. You can get an Elite, Elite Plus, Elite Pro Plus or Elite Pro. The verbage or nomenclature that FMK Firearms is trying to use with consumers essentially boils down to this: Plus=Threaded Barrel and Pro=4″ Barrel. Slightly confusing with so many similar names, but their is a rhyme and reason to how they named these handguns.
