[SHOT 2019] V3 and V4 – New Glock slides from Grey Ghost Precision

    There seems to be an ever-increasing flow of Glock aftermarket slides for potential consumers, and Grey Ghost Precision have announced two additional slide patterns for the Glock 17 and 19 for their GGP-17 and GGP-19 product line.

    The existing lines are called V1 and V2, so it’s no surprise that the two new patterns are named V3 and V4.

    The V3 and V4 slides feature a hybrid MRDS cut. Previously the V1 and V2 slides were only cut and tapped for mounting the Trijicon RMR.

    The V3 and V4 slides will feature a modified optic footprint to accommodate the slightly larger Leupold DeltaPoint Pro.

     

    From the Grey Ghost description:

    Taking direct feedback from pistol combat instructors and shooting professionals who were using our V1 and V2 slides, the V3 pattern was designed with tapered serration channels for an increased purchase on the slide when performing press checks or malfunction clearing drills, ensuring positive operation of the slide under duress or while in any wet, muddy, and/or visceral conditions. Another innovation is the dual compatibility optic cut, which is milled for either a Leupold Deltapoint Pro or a Trijicon RMR when using the supplied aluminum shim plate and screws.

    V3 Slides

    GGP-19 V3 Slide. Note that the depth of the serrations taper inwards as the cut goes up the slide.

    V3 FEATURES:

    • Stripped slide machined from 17-4 Billet Stainless Steel to have tighter tolerances than a factory slide
    • Black Nitride Coated inside and out
    • V3 Slide Pattern with tapered serrations for improved grip
    • NEW dual optic cutout compatible with Leupold DeltaPoint Pro or Trijicon RMR with supplied shim plate (correct length screws included)
    • Includes a custom G10 cover plate and proper screws for use without optic installed
    • Available for Gen 3 or Gen 4 G19 compatible frames
    • PREORDER: Estimated ship date is 2/1/19

     

     

    V4 Slides

    GGP-17 V4 Slide. Note the studded micro-scale texture for increased frictional grip in both directions.

    Just like the V1, V2 and V3 slides, the V4 is the perfect aftermarket performance upgrade to your factory Glock® 17/19 or an 80% pistol build. Machined from 17-4 billet stainless steel: Check! Tighter tolerances than factory parts: Check! Dual compatibility with either the Leupold Deltapoint Pro or Trijicon RMR: Check! Where the V4 slide really steps out on its own is the microscale pattern texture that provides a higher level of frictional grip in any direction of pull. Coupled with the top window cutout, this will quickly become your next favorite slide pattern for carry or duty.

    V4 FEATURES:

    • Stripped slide machined from 17-4 Billet Stainless Steel to have tighter tolerances than a factory slide
    • Black Nitride Coated inside and out
    • V4 Slide Pattern with studded microscales for enhanced frictional grip
    • NEW dual optic cutout compatible with Leupold DeltaPoint Pro or Trijicon RMR with supplied shim plate (correct length screws included)
    • Includes a custom G10 cover plate and proper screws for use without optic installed
    • Available for Gen 3 or Gen 4 G19 compatible frames
    • PREORDER: Estimated ship date is 2/1/19
