Why should I modify my handgun?
There are many technical answers to this question, but the simplest reason we can offer is this: "To be different!" Glock and M&P pistols are the most prolific handguns in the world, and they all look the same. Don't settle for being one-of-millions when you can be one-of-a-kind.
How fast is the turnaround time?
Currently, our lead time for modifications on customer supplied Glock and M&P slides is approximately 4 weeks, depending on options chosen. For Example: Single solid color Cerakote takes significantly less time to spray than our multi color camouflage patterns. To check the progress on your order please feel free to contact us using our Contact Form or send us an email directly. Please note that lead times are subject to change without notice and do not include holidays or shipping times.
Can you work on aftermarket slides?
That depends. In general, we prefer to work on factory slides, and our CNC programs are tailored for factory Glock and M&P specifications. Some companies (such as Lonewolf Distributors) make OEM profile blank slides out of 416 Stainless Steel. These 416SS Lonewolf OEM pattern slides are acceptable substitutions for factory Glock slides. However, the following slides are not acceptable for modification: Brownells Blank Slides (17-4 Stainless), Lonewolf Featureless Slides, or any other slide made out of 17-4 Stainless. Please contact us before placing an order if you plan to send an aftermarket slide.
Why do you require a "Serial Number" for your customization work?
We ask that you put the serial number of your factory Glock slide simply so we can keep track of your slide while it's here. If your slide does not have a serial number, as is the case with most blanks, simply put "Blank" in the serial number form. Please, keep in mind that we are unable to work on some manufacturer's blank slides, so it's a good idea to contact us prior to sending an aftermarket slide.
How do I ship my items for customization?
Please see our Shipping page for complete directions.
Can you do completely custom work?
YES! We pride ourselves in bringing customer's ideas to reality. If you have your own design in mind, or would like to tweak any aspect of one of our designs, we're happy to work with you. As a general business practice, we will not copy other company's work, so please don't ask. Currently, we are only working on Glocks and M&Ps, but others are in the works.
How does modifying the slide affect the functionality of my pistol?
We extensively test our slide designs for function prior to their release to the public. We do not release products that we feel are a danger to the user, or those that have significant reliability issues. With that said, every individual handgun and shooter is different, so certain modifications may alter the reliability and/or accuracy of your handgun.
Obviously, all of our slide milling services will remove mass from the stock slide. We find that most models continue to function as intended with the factory recoil spring assembly, even with significant slide mass reduction. You may choose to change your recoil spring to a heavier or lighter weight based on personal preference.
Will my pistol "kick" more with a modified slide?
That's a tough question to answer because there are a lot of variables in play. In general (barring all other variables), slides with less mass will cycle faster than slides with more mass. Because of this increase in slide velocity, most shooters will perceive a slightly sharper, snappier recoil impulse.
HOWEVER, because the action is cycling faster, and there is less reciprocating mass, most experienced shooters will shoot flatter with a modified slide than with a stock slide. As with any handgun, solid grip fundamentals make all the difference with recoil management.
Will modifying my firearm void the factory warranty?
Slide milling and frame modifications will almost certainly void your factory warranty. Drop in replacement parts alone, may, but are much less likely to, void your warranty. It is your responsibility to know what is covered under your warranty.
Do you sell complete custom pistols?
Not yet. But we're working on it.
Do you sell slides?
Yes! These slides can be found in "Pistol Accessories" > "Slides". If desired, these slides can be purchased in conjunction with any of our slide customization packages and will be modified prior to shipment. If you purchase a new slide to be modified, simply put "GLOCK" in the order form where it requires a serial number.
What is the Return Policy?
You may return most new, unopened (unused and uninstalled) items within 30 days of delivery. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect item, etc.). Due to the nature of the products we sell and for liability reasons, used or installed items are not returnable. Ammunition is not returnable.
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
For obvious reasons, all of our custom work is non-returnable, however, we guarantee your 100% satisfaction. In the unlikely event you are unhappy with our custom work, we will work with you to come up with a solution.
If you need to return an item, please Contact Us with your order number and details about the product you would like to return. We will respond quickly with instructions for how to return items from your order.
Note: All returns/refunds not due to an error on our part will incur a 10% restocking fee.
