Good idea, poor execution. That thing's goofy looking as hell. I might buy a cool looking/functional aftermarket slide, but nothing so ugly i gotta put a paper bag over my gun before I shoot it.

Personally, I like the boxy attractiveness of a Glock. And if we’re going for aftermarket, I like the nicely designed ZEV or TARAN TACTICAL variants. But the above abomination is ugly as sin.

Buying one of those slides is like spending a lot of money on new wheels for an new car that already came with nice wheels, not something I do!

Oem glock is basic and it works. But I wouldn't say it's nice. Compare to the lone custom slides.
But everyone has their own style. Some folks prefer plain Jane and some wishes a little more flair

Those slides are hideous, and if they weigh less than the oem slide, the action is unlocking faster and mucking with the system.

I’m more concerned about if they’ll bring back their 9x25 Dillon barrels!

Sharp edges, I can see me ripping skin off trying to rack it.

What do you think?

That slide will probably look good in USPSA Open Class race gun sporting a blended compensator. Although the angled recoil rod dust cover might make the blending difficult.

I like the one cut for an RMR, just because ... it's cut for an RMR.

I think the round one is nice. I don't like the weird part in the middle, but I guess you have to transition from the square barrel hood to the rounded front of the slide somehow. Too many grooves, but not horrible IMHO.

On second thought I guess the square transition piece would be helpful for people who imagine having to rack the gun with one hand on a belt or whatever.

Agree except I do think that middle part is horrible. It looks like a heat sink from a 1950’s ray gun. Shallow grooved would've been better than cut.

I wouldn’t buy a glock. I’d put that slide on another frame.

They end up probably costing close to 400. They are more expensive options. Look at agency arms and alike. So it's not too bad. But yes they aren't too cheap.

I'm thinking a out it.
I wished lone would make their glock lowers into 80%.
I wonder why they aren't jumping in on that game.
Poly 80 is really hot right now. Lone missing the boat. Cause as of now, Cali folks cant get lone 'S lower cause they are not Cali bs approved. Well there are ways, but generally u can't get them here.
Better do it while it's hot and before there some bs fed law that will get it banned
