Faxon Firearms revealed their Hellfire and Patriot slides at NRA 2018. Currently made for the Smith & Wesson full-sized M&P pistol series, the slides are the first in a new line of accessories for Faxon.

The optic cuts will allow for the direct-mounting of a Trijicon RMR, Holosun MRDS, plus the Burris Fastfire, Vortex Viper, or Vortex Venom. No plate is needed, however a cover plate will ship with the slide in the event that the shooter doesn’t want an optic on all the time.

The Hellfire slide is currently made for S&W full sized M&P pistols.

Faxon makes the Hellfire and Patriot slides in-house from 17-4 Stainless Steel, are created to accept Glock sites, and have a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) finish for durability. When paired with the match series M&P barrels they unveiled at SHOT Show earlier this year, Faxon focuses on quality and function where it matters most.

MSRP for the Patriot is $499 and the Hellfire is $525. Slides for the Glock 19 are expected to drop sometime this summer. Learn more about Faxon Firearms and the Hellfire or Patriot slides here.

Faxon's Patriot slide has machined post in the optic cuts for optic locating and recoil absorption.
