I think slide cutouts look really great anybody have a thought on them or photos....
Im looking it up. Specially with the 21 seems it would really cut down the weight not to mention the badass factor!vanniek71 said:I'm not sure. I do know that those slides start out as Glock factory slide and then Salient mills them out and customizes them.
Yes please, i wonder if on a glock it will cancel out you warranty as well? All you informed glock owners, what do you say?dougster said:I've seen these, but I've also read that the weight of the slide plays an important part in the cycling of the gun.
Would like to hear some of our more informed colleagues weigh in on this one.
Well, i guess sometimes the pretty stuff just isnt as advertised is it. Thanks for the good info.jonm61 said:If you remove too much mass from the slide, you will have to go to a lighter recoil spring in order to have reliable function. I would not do that on a carry gun, in large part to the mentioned increase in dust/debris/dirt that will get in.
You will void your warranty on the slide itself. The rest of the gun will remain covered. If you do this, you will be opening up the edges of the cut to rust as the edges will not have the Tennifer treatment; it doesn't go deep enough to protect the exposed areas. A good finish will protect it, but if the finish should get damaged, then you could have a problem.
Something else to consider, as far as polishing...I've not experienced it myself, but I have read reports from multiple people that when they try to apply oil to their polished barrel, it just runs right off. Glocks can run on minimal lubrication, but they do need some.
