Machined from hardened stainless steel, the slide features aggressively raked front and rear serrations, weight reducing window and pocket cuts, and precisely executed chamfers and radiuses throughout. The slides are coated in cutting edge hard-use finishes–DLC is renowned for its hardness, lubricity, and deep black color. Our new PVD FDE finish is chemically identical to the finish chosen for the Army’s new modular handgun program. Not simply cerakote, this is a chemically bonded PVD finish that is substantially tougher than conventional epoxy type finishes. Includes hardcoat anodized cover plate, cover plate screws, and RMR mounting screws.
