New Glock Lightening Ports
« on: April 30, 2012, 08:28:58 am »


Just came off the machine. Our latest in Lightening Ports for the Glock.

Removes weight off the front of the slide for less conceal carry weight and more comfort. Barrels can be ported as well.

I ll show a finish installed product and shooting it to show function.

Thanks

    Some people say they noticed a little, others say they didn't notice it at all.

    Myself, I can't say I notice it. With our extreme lightening package, I notice it. But not with just the porting of the slide alone.

    Looks cool; looks like it'd be hard on holsters too.
    I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

    That looks cool, and obviously reduces weight, but what about snagging concerns? I could see that for competition, but I question it for Concealed Carry.

    I absolutely despise Glocks. That's why I only own two.

    I wonder if the weight savings is really worth the loss of strenth to the slide in that section? How much weight does a job like this save? It can't be more than a couple ounces?  :shrug

    I ll have to pull the weight info. I want to say 1 oz. I know that's not a lot, but its a lot for some people. The snag factor is always a concern depending on what you carry and how you carry it. Though these look sharp I do dull them down so they aren't so snaggle tooth like. I have been machining lightening ports into guns for around 6-7 years and never had anyone complain about snagging on a holster or clothing. That doesn't mean it couldn't happen, but out of the hundreds I ve done, 0 complaints isn't too shabby :clap
