Now this looks like fun! Lone Wolf has begun shipping its 90%-finished, stainless steel GLOCK slides. They’re completely ready to accept internals and run, but externally they’re unfinished bar stock.
While most purchasers will likely be other “manufacturers” selling finished slides under their own brand names, the appeal of cutting your own serrations, ports, and optics cuts caveman style in your garage is obvious. Probably.
I see a TTAG special edition slide for my G19 coming soon. The first one will probably look like Helen Keller and Michael J. Fox got drunk and did it together, left-hands-only, but I promise I’ll post pictures of my second attempt.
they way it is may be an improvement for a glock, pass.
Wow, Lone Wolf actually managed to make a worse looking Glock slide.
Seriously, I like the idea of just throwing this on, sans sights, and heading to the range.
If you’re shooting it sideways, what’s the difference? I bet it makes for a cool two tone Glocc Foh-tay for your sideways shooting needs too.
These will be interesting, if they left enough “meat” at the front to taper it, similar to the G34/G35/G26/G27 models.
Kind of spendy, though, IMO.
why can’t helen keller drive?
Because she died in 1968?
A friend told this joke to my wife and she was NOT pleased. I believe what you’re getting at is:
Q: Why was Helen Keller a bad driver?
A: Because she’s a woman.
Not cool…Not cool.
Okay, so where can I get a good deal on a G17 slide, preferably used & complete?
Parts kits from police destroyed guns.
When are they going to make a stainless steel frame to go with it???
They finally made it a block. No more joking at this point. The block glock build must be done.
With an actual 2×4 for the grip. Or maybe literally a brick.
Carry meltable test mule?
“How can we make money without developing a new product or doing any work?”
“Let’s just grab some **** off the assembly line, call it 90%, and list it for sale”
But someone needs to do stuff like this for CZ75s.
Thank you for this little piece of info. Now I’m considering it for my 80% GLOCK 17. Just going medieval on it with bench and angle grinder and some files might be interesting little project. I don’t even like GLOCKS. But for $70 I couldn’t resist.
