Our titanium Glock slides are machined from solid billets of 6AL4V, aerospace grade titanium and finished with our patented ArmorTiTM process to provide the the lightest, most durable, absolutely corrosion-free components available. Weighing about half as much as a factory slide, you will not believe how light your handgun feels when you mount one of these bad boys on your frame. In many cases, just by mounting our slide, your handgun will weigh the same amount loaded as it did empty in the factory configuration (results may vary based on whatever other goodness you have bolted to your bullet slinger). If you carry every day, a Krytos titanium slide will change your life.
One question we get all the time is how this effects recoil. In short, it makes it faster. The reduced weight will make the recoil feel a bit “snappier,” but the overall increase in recoil isn’t enough to be uncomfortable and many people barely notice the change. Bonus points: because the recoil happens faster, your sights get back on target faster and you will notice a dramatic reduction in muzzle dip when the slide returns to battery due to the reduced mass of the slide.
Fair warning, if you put one of our slides on your handgun, it will never feel right without it again.
