Brownells & Glockworx Team Up To Deliver Slides For Glocks

Glockworx Slide

 

Through an exclusive partnership with Glockworx, Brownells is now offering a selection of slides pre-cut for popular optics to fit the Glock 17, in-stock and ready-to-ship.

Made for the Glock 17, the top rear of each Optic Cut Slide features a large precision-relieved slot allowing close-to-the-bore mounting of optics to minimize sight offset problems on short range targets. Also, the slide top near the front sight is ported to reduce overall slide weight, reduce recoil impulse and improve control of the pistol.

“The design teams at Glockworx and Brownells have worked together to develop four Glock slides to fit the Model 17 with pre-cut slots at the precise depth, width and angle to fit the most popular optics on the market.,” said Pete Brownell, President of Brownells Inc. “The custom work has been done already, just swap your Glock 17 factory slide for a Glockwork slide, install your optics or iron sights, and you’re ready to shoot.”

The Optic Cut Slides accommodate Dr Optic, Burris FastFire, JPoint, and RMR Optics. The cut on each slide model varies to fit the specialized base shape and mounting-screw pattern of those optics. There’s also an iron-sight-ready model. Because the optics sit down into the Glockworx cuts, they present a reduced profile and have very little offset between the sight and barrel – a critical advantage for those really close shots.

Six ports cut into the top of the slides reduce slide weight for faster target transitions and reduced recoil impulse.

Each replacement Glockworx slide is CNC-machined from aircraft-grade heat-treated stainless steel for long life. The sight cuts, ports, lowered ejection port, firing pin hole, breech face, and front and rear cocking serrations are precision-machined to ensure a precise fit and flawless function. The surfaces are finished with Zev Technology’s black DLC coating to resist corrosion and damage. All are currently available here.

At Brownells everything is guaranteed period! …Forever, 100%, with no restocking fees. Founded in 1939, they supply more than 50,000 firearms parts, accessories, gunsmithing tools and ammunition to armorers, gunsmiths, and shooters worldwide.

GLOCK 22 HOLSTER – BLACKHAWK CQC SERPA PICTURE

I was taking some pictures for a few of my other sites and I decided to grab a quick picture of the BLACKHAWK CQC SERPA for GLOCK 22. The holster and Glock look like they were made for each other.

GLOCK HOLSTER for GLOCK 17/22/31 BLACKHAWK CQC SERPA

Im growing quite fond of my GLOCK and I want to see how well it works for concealed carry. To that end I needed a holster. Typically I just go right for the best and purchase a KRAMER HANDGUN LEATHER HORSEHIDE VERTICAL SCABBARD but this time I wanted to try something different and get something that was inexpensive, highly regarded and a little more tactical looking. After a few nights of talking to folks and researching I ended up with the BLACKHAWK CQC SERPA for GLOCK 22.

Pictures and a review will follow soon.

GLOCK TRITIUM NIGHT SIGHTS

 

MEPROLIGHT GLOCK TRU-DOT TRITIUM NIGHT SIGHTS

MEPROLIGHT GLOCK TRU-DOT TRITIUM NIGHT SIGHTS

 

I made it to the ripe old age of 44 without any ambition or desire for TRITIUM NIGHT SIGHTS for a Handgun or Rifle. Then last October I was visiting Hoffman’s Guns with a good friend. He was buying an AR-15 and I was just along for moral support. The story was kind of busy and my friend was taking his time chatting and filling out the forms for his rifle. In that time I started to look at the 1911’s. Next thing I knew I was dropping off $1800 on a KIMBER TACTICAL ENTRY II .45acp 1911.  So much for moral support.

This 1911 while not the best looking weapon it had all the right stuff that I look for with the addition of  TRITIUM NIGHT SIGHTS. In the six months that I have owned the KIMBER TACTICAL ENTRY II 1911 I have grown quite fond of the TRITIUM NIGHT SIGHTS. So much so I now have them on an AR-15 and my SIG SAUER P226 ENHANCED ELITE. This brings me to my current Dilemma. My brand new GLOCK 22. The GLOCK 22 has the plain Jane factory sights and they need to go. One problem though. I am a little bit overwhelmed at the TRITIUM NIGHT SIGHT options available for the GLOCK 22. Below is a list of the sights I am considering. You can read their specifications  here at Brownells.

  1. AMERIGLO
  2. MEPROLIGHT GLOCK TRU-DOT
  3. TRIJICON
  4. ARO-TEK
  5. TRUGLO
  6. EAI HOLDING, INC

Now here’s the thing. While I’m trying to decide exactly which set to purchase I thought I would let sight visitors chime in and give their opinion of the various models.

GLOCK 22 GEN 4 – First Picture

Here is a picture of my brand new GLOCK 22 GEN 4 chambered in .40 Smith&Wesson.

GLOCK 22 GEN 4

GLOCK Introduces New Gen4 Models for 2011

Originally introduced with the GLOCK 22 (.40 caliber), and the GLOCK 17 (9×19) models, GLOCK’s newest generation pistol, the Gen4, brings revolutionary design changes to the world’s most popular pistol, centered around ergonomics and the recoil spring assembly. New to the Gen4 family for 2011, GLOCK has unveiled GLOCK models 26 (9×19), G27 (.40 caliber) Gen4 models.

With any Gen4 model, the most noticeable difference you will see is that the basic grip size is smaller compared to the previous generation designs, due to the fact that the new generation offers a multiple backstrap system that allows the user to change the circumference of the grip to fit their individual hand size. The grip which has a new Rough Textured Frame (RTF) surface designed to enhance grip traction, offers three options: a short frame version, medium frame or large frame that are easily changed and secured with a single pin. The trigger mechanism housing has also been dimensionally adapted to fit in the smaller sized grip space.

The magazine release catches are also significantly enlarged and reversible for the left handed shooter. To utilize the swappable magazine release feature, the Gen4 magazines have two notches cut on both sides of the magazine body, allowing users to switch access of the catch to the left or right side of the pistol with no additional parts.
Internally, the original recoil spring has been replaced with a dual recoil spring assembly, which noticeably reduces the recoil while simultaneously increasing the life cycle of the part. The slide and barrel shelf have been resized due to the larger diameter of the spring assembly. The front portion of the polymer frame under the slide has also been widened and enlarged internally in order to accommodate the dual assembly.

“GLOCK, Inc.’s dedication to perfection has made GLOCK the chosen firearm for many Law Enforcement agencies around the world.” said Gary Fletcher, Vice President at GLOCK, Inc. “The new Gen4 models are just another step in GLOCK, Inc.’s commitment to producing the best firearm for U.S. Law Enforcement, Military and the law-abiding citizen.”

The Gen4, just like any GLOCK pistol, has the same tested “Safe Action” system, durable exterior finish, cold hammer forged barrel, durability, reliability and lightweight that have made GLOCK firearms famous. All GLOCK pistols are backed by the GLOCK Limited Lifetime Warranty and world-class customer service and support that is second to none in the firearms industry.
