Glocks are pistols designed to last. Saying that it’s not unusual for Glock owners to swap out a component or two. When it comes to Glock slides, there are two main reasons to replace them. One reason is to spruce it up and give your pistol a little “cool factor”. You may also want to increase the overall performance of your firearm.

Fortunately, you are not restricted to Glock’s original parts. There are a number of manufacturers providing a wide variety of Glock parts that enhance both its aesthetics and performance.

Best Custom Glock Slides: Buyer’s Guide Glock 19 gen 3

Material and Finish

The slide is obviously a moving part that also needs to take the wear and tear you throw at it. Options for Glock slide finishes are Cerakote FDE, black Nitride, stainless steel, and more. Most are durable but check that you can’t easily scratch the finish.


Glocks come equipped with rear sight serrations. These serrations assist in holding the slide while you’re pushing it backward. However, there are other gun owners that prefer serrations at the front sights. So, if you have your own preference on where you want your serrations placed, you can consider getting a customized slide.

Slide Cuts

You can attach Ruggedized Miniature Reflex (RMR) cuts for rapid target acquisition, by allowing you to add optics like red dot sights. An RMR-cut slide for earlier Glock models would be an ideal update. Glock, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, and many other well-known handgun manufacturers now provide this as a factory option.

Because one reason why people change their Glock slide is aesthetics, you might want to consider the slide’s appearance. You can go for a fully customized slide if you want. Just prepare yourself for a long waiting period if you want your slides more personalized.

Brownells is not just mine, but almost every gun owner’s go-to store for parts and accessories. The company has been in the business for many years, so they do know about guns. I also love that their slides fit well with factory Glock frames. The tolerances are excellent, so there’s no need to fit any parts.

They have regular slides, optics cut and windowed varieties of Glock slides available. And if you want the RMR Sight versions, they have them too.

Looks good, works well. That’s one simple way to describe NDZ Performance when it comes to their Glock slides. The company specializes in Glock aftermarket parts with lots of pre-designed graphics for a distinct look. Their designs are sharp and aggressive, with scratch and corrosion-resistant properties, making them an ideal choice for professional shooters and for tactical purposes.

Glock 48 Slide

Agency Arms may be new in the gun business, but you can easily tell their products apart with their sleek designs and performance-enhancing characteristics. Their Glock slides come in different variations such as pre-cut and stripped.

Their slides feature durable stainless steel material and grippy serrations, refinished in diamond-like carbon.

However, their slides are quite pricey and it’s shaped differently. As a result, you might need to get a new holster if ever you opt for their slides.

Made in the U.S.A., DV8 Dynamics is a house for sleek and cool-looking slides that boasts more grip and easier racking control. Some of their slides have custom cuts that offer lots of grips even with gloves on.

You can also have your slides custom-machined to your gun. But lead time is not exactly short. At the time of writing, you have to wait for 12 weeks before you can use your new slide.

Opt for this one if you want slides with cool aesthetics. There are lots of variations to choose from and they have custom Glock slides. Also, they provide a lifetime warranty which is a sweet deal.

Killer Innovations Velocity Glock Slide

Killer innovations offer slides compatible with Gen 3 to Gen 5 Glocks. Their slides are made of stainless steel material featuring Enhanced Grip Feature (EGF) cuts at the front and back that provide excellent grip and a solid platform you can push against while racking. As a result, it’s more efficient than using slides with traditional serration cuts.

Now… one thing to take note of about the slides from Killer Innovations is that you need to get used to the slide. At first, your fingers won’t know where to grab. But of course, after a bit of practice, you’ll be a pro.

And yes, practicing using this slide is definitely worth it. You’ll be able to get smoother shots once you get used to the slide. It also offers lightning cuts, RMR cuts (Leupold Delta Point of Trijicon RMR), and it comes in two colors. This is the ideal option if you’re looking for a slide with excellent gripping.

Grey Ghost Glock Slides

For a better balance and accurate shooting experience, Grey Ghost is the brand to go for. Their slides are offered in RMR cut versions in high tolerances. 

They have two types: V1 and V2. The difference? V1 has lightning cuts for reducing the front weight. Hence, balancing the gun. It also has an aggressive look which I really like. While the V2 comes equipped with the “Geo Scales” for a positive grip that also looks cool.

Now for the downside, it might be difficult to put on stock frames at first. But don’t worry, just lubricate them well, and test for a few rounds until they become smooth to use
