21 of the Best Custom Glocks In The World

ZEV Technologies Z34 Dragonfly. One of the most famous custom Glocks in the world.

There are few more divisive topics with gun enthusiasts than custom Glocks. Some people loathe them, others love them. Either way, they certainly get your attention.


They’re not going away anytime soon, either, and as well as a growing cult that is Agency Arms, some of the more established tuners are throwing their hat into the Glock ring too. Wilson Combat, Danger Close Armament and now Patriot Ordnance Factory have joined the fray with Glock parts and kits of their own.


John Wick is sponsored by Taran Tactical, ZEV Tech is pulling out all the stops with a custom metal handgun, the ZEV Tech OZ-9, and others are watching with interest at the growing Glock parts scene.


DIY Glocks are a Subculture

Glock modifications can mean just a few small tuning parts that make the world of difference, or they can be a whole lot of work that turns a plastic gun into a $2,000+ piece of jewelry.


Of course, we have to get past the fact that you could have a serious 1911, or two of them, for the money you might be about to drop on a Glock pistol.


A Glock can turn into an expensive pistol. We all know this by now, but the owners love them.


They’ll tell you that only a connoisseur will feel it, but the sharper trigger and reduced recoil of the lightened slide make the world of difference.


Where to Buy Your Modded Glocks


You can send in your own donor Glock pistol to the companies and they’ll turn it into a modern masterpiece of a custom gun. If you can’t wait, though, we have direct links to custom guns you can buy right now.

Rainier Arms has a pretty solid selection of modded Glocks on their website and they always seem to have a slight discount. So you can get your gun right now, and get a better price!


So, with all that said, what’s the best modified Glock for sale in 2020?


The Best Custom Glocks in 2020


ZEV Tech OZ9 - A ground up rebuild of the GLock 19 with a metal frame and all of ZEV Tech's custom Glock knowledge and Glock parts & accessories experience.

1. ZEV Technologies OZ-9


  • Price: $1,595
  • Caliber: 9mm Luger
  • Barrel Length: 4.5 inch
  • Total Length: 8.75 inch
  • Caliber: 17+1


The new Glock champion of the world is a ground-up new build with a patent pending steel receiver. You got it, the ZEV Technologies OZ9 is a metal-bodied Glock Plus.


This is what Glock fans have been screaming for and ZEV Technologies listened. The company started out making parts , but it has branched out into custom firearms.


Glock is a federally registered trademark and some of these guns lie close to the line. But this is a cottage industry that the Austrian firearms manufacturer has wisely chosen to support, if not tacitly endorse. Companies like ZEV Tech have built their brand on the polymer pistol.


You can get one of the best AR-15 rifles for sale from ZEV these days and now it has brought the fire to the custom handgun market. A steel-bodied Glock sounds like a pretty freaking sweet start for a handgun.


Extended rails mean you get double the surface area for a contact patch. This gun also comes with self-cleaning and lubricating channels that help keep this gun shooting butter smooth all day long.


Vibrations and lateral movement have been reduced and the gun shoots flat and true, every time. A magazine extension is fairly easy to come by too.

High-Tech 9mm Pistol

There’s a lot of tech innovation and a lot to love about this gun. Especially the steeper grip angle and reprofiled grip that helps you get high up on the gun.


Now it’s questionable whether you can even call this a Glock anymore, but it does work with Glock mags and accessories and the ZEV Technologies OZ9 really is the ultimate metal Glock.


It’s slim enough to use as your EDC, and the price point is seductive in its own way. Essentially you don’t have to buy the Glock anymore and throw away parts so it is the cost-effective way to get a competition spec Glock without watching all the Youtube videos and having to buy Glock parts online.


You just spend $1,595 through Rainier Arms’ discounted price for an off-the-peg Glock with a steel body.


That actually sounds like a bargain in this company, and it might just be the best striker-fired handgun in the world.

Grey Ghost Precision Combat Pistol For Sale. AN awesome custom Glock 19 with a real USP. Buy your pistol online now.

2. Grey Ghost Precision Combat Pistol

  • Price: $1,439.04
  • Base Gun: Glock 19
  • Caliber: 9mm Luger

Novelty factor certainly comes into this one, but we like the fact that this is a properly practical EDC as well.


Grey Ghost Precision don’t need us to sell their skills, you know all about their rifles and match grade Glock parts. Now it has made its own pistol, the Grey Ghost Precision Combat Pistol.


Deliveries have started and the early demand for this custom pistol is high. We think that’s reasonable.


This might just be the best compromise of style, improved functionality and actual practicality, as well as a price tag that is almost seductive in this company.


Now it does look a bit ‘Operator’. But then, they all do in their own way and the chunky non-slip finish that reminds me of a weird waterproof sleeve for a mobile phone just works aesthetically, ergonomically, everywhere.


Shockproof Handgun? Kind Of…


This handgun isn’t a mass of clever, fragile details. It looks shockproof, like you could drop it off a cliff and it would survive the fall.


We love some of the other guns on this list, but you would struggle to use them as an EDC. Home defense, no problem. EDC is a different story and red dots, five inch barrels and even ported slides can all get in the way.


Grey Ghost has produced a gun that does exactly what it says on the tin. This is a combat pistol first and foremost that is designed for the moments you’re firing in anger. It looks good, but it isn’t a gun that should spend its days on a plinth as a piece of faux art.


The basic Glock 19 has been tuned with all kinds of small adjustments that you might not even take in at first glance. This is a ground-up rebuild and I guess Grey Goose has found some serious cost savings by being its own supplier.


It might grind your gears to hear this described as a cheap gun for sale, but it’s a complete weapon and pretty much all the others will charge you this much and then demand you send them a perfectly functional new Glock for a donor gun. In this company, the Grey Ghost Precision Combat Pistol is a freakin bargain.


Buy Glock Slides, Parts and Accessories


Of course you can buy the slides separately and they are legendary. They are machined from 17-4 billet stainless steel with critical dimensions within .003″.


You get a complete Nitride-coated slide on the outside and inside and it’s also milled and tapped for a Trijicon RMR. So you don’t even need an adapter plate.


Yes that sounds anal, but why spend so much on a lightweight slide if you’re then going to cancel out that weight saving with a big plate?


They do include a G10 cover plate and screws if you want to go that way. But this slide is the best it can be, which means it’s the lightest it can be.


Brutal Serrations On this Glock Slide


It’s fully serrated, brutally so, and if you can’t get a good grip on this slide then you have flippers for hands and you are the problem.


The stippling is perfect, if you like geometric patterns. The trigger guard is almost cartoonish with its undercut and other options. You might even see the 1911-style 107.5 degree angle on the grip now.


It also comes with an enhanced beavertail to get you higher up on your gun, safe from slide bite.


Grey Ghost Precision Drop-in Trigger is Perfect


Grey Ghost Precision turned to CMC for the flat drop-in trigger. That’s a $150-$180 part on its own. Other ergonomic touches include the extended slide release and mag release.


The Magwell is subtly flared to the point that you can reload instinctively, without going as far as some of the competition.


It’s just a really balanced and well thought out Glock 19 gen 5 that you could carry every day. It’s not jewelry, it’s an EDC that is near faultless as a real-life self-defense handgun. It flies in the face of the Swiss watch style construction techniques of the opposition and we like its style.


This custom Glock doesn’t need to beat them by fractions on the felt recoil, it looks like it would pistol whip them all to a bloody pulp before they even got to the range. That is physical presence, and that’s hard to fake.


That might just make it the best custom Glock in the world…. It’s certainly close.


Buy custom Glock shiz, now…

Faxon Firearms FX-19 Patriot Compact Pistol for sale. A complete custom Glock, off the peg. Save money, and get a better gun at the USA Gun Shop.

3. Faxon Firearms FX-19 Patriot Compact

  • Price: $1,234.99
  • Caliber: 9mm Luger

This is another ground-up rebuild of the Glock 19 using a variety of classic inspirations.


Of course there’s the custom Faxon Firearms frame, with a grip angle more closely resembling a 1911. Then there is the integral flared magwell, double undercut trigger guard and extended mag release. An Overwatch Precision Trigger replaces the standard Glock unit and that’s just the start of the spec list.


The barrel is a Faxon Firearms match-grade unit. The slide is produced in-house from high-grade stainless steel.


Now this is a complex design that is chunky enough to get a grip on your weapon just about every which way. It’s RMR ready, fitted with suppressor ready night sights and you can go full tacti-cool with this handgun if that’s the way you want to take it.


The extended mag offers five more rounds of 9mm. That is a serious competitive advantage that is also available any other number of ways, cheaper ways. As a cohesive unit, though, this tactical pistol, a Glock 19 evolution, could easily become your handgun of choice. Take it target shooting, EDC it and have it ready on your nightstand.


Danger Close Armament has produced a stunning gun with its custom Glock 43x. It's expensive, but you want it.

4. Danger Close Armament Glock 43X

  • Price: $1,199
  • Base Gun: Glock 43x

This gun is a largely cosmetic makeover, but it just looks awesome and the Glock 43x was already an outstanding carry pistol.


So these minor tweaks really do turn it into a little badass.


The company’s signature brain texture stippling is the standout mod, although the slide is perfectly formed as well.


Apart from the non slip benefits of the slide and grip, it’s really cosmetic rather than performance mods here. And the gun costs a hefty $1,199.99. So is it worth it? Well if you want a great looking CCW and you only trust a Glock, then maybe yes.


The Glock 43x has restored our faith in Glock as a concealed carry pistol contender. But there’s no getting round the fact it isn’t the most stylish handgun. Danger Close Armament has fixed that.


Where to buy Danger Close Armament guns and parts

Danger Close Armament has given the custom treatment to the Sig Sauer P365 Nitron, the M&P Shield, Glock 43, Archon Type-B and the CZ P-10.

There are more on the way, these are pretty tight cosmetic and stippling packages and we’re sure they’ll find a market. but where do you buy Danger Close Armament slides and barrels? Or where do you buy custom Glock firearms?

Start here:


The War Poet, a custom Glock built by Shadow Systems and John Lovell of the Warrior Poet Society. It's RMR ready, and a hell of a combat pistol.

5. The War Poet

  • Price: $1,049.99
  • Base Gun: Glock Frame

The Shadow Systems Multi Role Frame is the star here and the company teamed up with John Lovell of the Warrior Poet Society to create sort of a custom Glock 19 Gen 5.


Again, this is a ground-up rebuild and a new gun, but it fits the profile of the Glock 19 and is clearly a modified Glock in spirit. The frame comes with aggressive custom stippling, a flared magwell and a new center of balance to reduce muzzle flip. These are all good things.


An extended beavertail kills slide bite, interchangeable backstraps give a custom handgun feel. The slide is ready for an RMR, which is a big deal if you want to go competitive shooting, and the 416R steel threaded barrel is suppressor ready.


Designed as a concealed carry that could also star as a tactical or range pistol, The War Poet comes with a 15+1 payload of 9mm ammunition. It’s also a lightweight combat pistol that would be a valid addition to just about any gun safe in the land.


John Wick 2 Glock 34 with TTI Combat Master Package. It's the pistol from, John Wick 2 and a great handgun.

6. Taran Tactical John Wick Combat Master Package

  • Price: $2,549
  • Base Gun: Glock 34 Gen 3

If you want to live your own John Wick fantasy, you used to have to send TTI a Glock and wait up to 24 weeks before you can strut round with the actual full size gun John Wick used in the movies.


Now Brownells is taking simple orders for complete guns. You could also do a similar job with a Glock 17 gen 3.


Taran Tactical might not be the biggest name, but they do a lot of custom guns for the movies and you’d be surprised how many heroes and villains have carried TTI hardware.


Check The Rock Michelle Rodriguez and Jason Statham in The Fast & The Furious 8. Will Smith also handled a TTI in his version of Deadshot.


It is John Wick that has made Taran Tactical famous in the wider world, though, and it’s pretty much our favorite product placement deal ever.


The Guns of John Wick 2 Are Sexy


John is a brutal hero and this is a brutal looking gun. It’s actually a full size Glock G34 gen 3 under the skin. So, if you have one lying around, you might want to send it in. At this price, it’s one of the cheaper Glocks here.


They can also work on a Glock Gen 4, but you won’t get the scallop cut for the mag release with the newer gun. You can now order the John Wick Combat master Package for the Glock 17 and 17L too.


With the baseplate magazine extensions, this looks like a beast and the color coding really helps set ff the new slide. It isn’t quite as chopped up as the main players here, but it’s a seriously functional Glock. There’s no RMR cut, but you do get fiber optic sights.


The trigger guard has a single undercut and it’s a fairly basic mod job that just happens to look nigh-on perfect.


If you love the films as much as we do, check out the other guns from the film here


Where to buy Taran Tactical Parts

If you don’t want to go full John Wick and you just want baseplate mag extensions or other Glock parts & accessories for your DIY Glock build at home, you can find them here.


Custom Glock 48 from Danger Close Armament. A complete tuning package with a custom slide, custom stippling and a gold barrel.

7. Danger Close Armament Glock 48

  • Price: $1,199
  • Base Gun: Glock 48 Gen 5

This may be the definition of a Gucci Glock, but just look at the electric blue and tin custom Glock 48 from Danger Close Armament.


The Glock modder has produced a truly beautiful pistol here. It’s gunporn and it finally takes full advantage of the Glock 48’s elegant proportions. The custom slide helps too and you can buy that in the DCA parts & accessories store, but we really like the Glock stippling taken to the next level.


A compact handgun with a single stack magwell gives you a slimline gun with a solid capacity and a longer barrel than a typical CCW for improved accuracy. Danger Close Armament has dropped in a match-grade barrel to make sure of that.


This is a designer concealed carry pistol that isn’t endorsed by Glock, but it is by us. We like this gun a lot.


Statement Defense KM3 Signature custom Glock for sale. A great custom firearm with a unique look.

8. Statement Defense KM3 Signature

Price: $2,195.00

Base Gun: Glock 19 Gen 3



Statement Defense is a parts supplier that has steepped up to total tuning packages and has made a big impression with this treatment for the Glock 19 gen 3.


This Glock tuning packages is as brave and plain confrontational as anything out there. We like it, right down to the jagged front cocking serrations in that ported Glock slide and the magazine extensions.


RMR Ready Combat Pistol


The Statement Defense trigger kit is as sharp as any here, the 3 window lightning cuts in the custom slide join forces with aggressive serrations that mean you can manipulate the slide any way you like.


It is RMR ready, comes with Combat Precision Fiber Optic night sights and an undercut trigger guard. The gun gets a complete cerakote finish that takes it well beyond the simple world of the Glock 19 gen 3.


Calling the new grip Battlecock stippling is, well, a bit weird. But we can overlook it this once as the new grip works a treat.


You can choose from a range of colors and finishes, and you can buy a gun with a RMR already attached. Get a custom Glock G17 Gen 3 for just $1,299.

The Polymer80 PFC Compact 9mm handgun for sale. Get your Polymer80

9. Polymer80 PFC9 Compact 9mm

  • Price: $550.00
  • Barrel Length: 4 inch
  • Total Length: 7.3 inch

The whole point of the Polymer80 PFC frame is that you buy a cheap Glock frame for a DIY build. The Polymer80 PFC9 Compact 9mm is an oddity, then.


This is a Glock approximation, that costs more than a Glock 19. But then that isn’t really fair. It’s like a modified Glock 19, straight from the factory,, for slightly more than a stock Glock. Look at it that way and it’s a better deal.


Most 80% kits for DIY Glock builds don’t turn out looking this good too, it has to be said.


This is a full serialized gun, which is based on the 100% serialized Polymer80 PCF frame that is an absolute smash hit with DIY Glock builders.


Of course that is mainly because the frame costs just North of $100 and you don’t need to throw away half a perfectly functional Glock to get started on your DIY pistol build.


The complete Polymer80 PCF 9mm probably won’t be the biggest seller. But it’s a nice gun. So there’s that.


Polymer80 PCF serialized frame. A cheap and near perfect start to a DIY Glock build. A lot of custom Glocks start out like this.

Where to Buy a Polymer80 PCF Frame


Most people won’t buy a complete Polymer80 gun. That’s kind of like buying ready-assembled LEGO. Glocks can be personal, and unique, and one of the best ways to start is with a frame from Polymer80 or Nomad Defense.

The Polymer80 PCF is a full serialized frame. So effectively it is the gun and you need a background check to buy it.

When it’s in your hands, the Polymer80 PFC is a stripped frame that essentially looks like a Glock 19 evolution.

The stippling is reminiscent of the Sig X-Carry. The trigger guard is so undercut that it almost looks too much and the accessory rail is chunkier than something really chunky.

Gen 3 parts are readily available and that’s what the Polymer80 PFC was built for. And with nothing to throw away on this stripped frame, you save a ton of money too.

The frame costs just $135 at Rainier Arms. You have to say that’s a seriously cheap way to start your custom Glock for sale build. But you will spend more, much more…

Buy a Polymer80 PFC9 pistol frame.


Norsso G19 Tiger Claw 2.0. A great custom Glock, if you want soething a bit different.

10. Norsso G19 Tiger Claw 2.0


  • Price: $2000
  • Caliber: 9mm Luger
  • Barrel: 4 inch


This custom gun is essentially to show off the Glock slides you can buy off the peg.


So we could comment on the stippling and that super flat trigger. Seriously, take another look at the trigger. It’s just the safety blade and honestly we wouldn’t do that.


But it doesn’t really matter. You can buy the slide, not the gun. If you could, this Glock 19 gen 4 looks a solid option for a carry gun.


It’s a good slide. We like it, and we think you will too.




11. Nomad Defense Frame only

  • Price: $200
  • Base gun: Gen 4 Glock 19


This is for the DIY custom Glock builders among you. It’s a shortcut, it’s a way to save money when you’re building a Glock and it’s an awesome foundation for your finished gun.


The Nomad 9 Frame fixes pretty much every minor issue with the old Glock 19. The Beavertail is extended, the stippling is much more aggressive, the trigger guard is undercut and the magwell is flared. It’s totally done for you.


This stippling looks better than at least one high-end Glock tuner that will remain nameless, and a few of the others too.


It’s built in to the original design, not grafted on, and this is an integrated frame that could prove the final solution for Glock builders. At this price, it saves hours of work and means you can’t mess up your custom Glocks with the details.


Agency Arms NOC

 

 

12. Agency Arms NOC

  • Price: $3000
  • Base Gun: Glock 19 gen 3


The Agency Arms NOC was the first truly bespoke pistol based on the Glock.


It is based on a Glock 19 frame profile, and the slide and compensator fit a Glock 17 profile. So, well, yeah, it kinda fits here and we slowly relaxed the rules as the tuners started creating custom guns based on Glocks.


So here we are, it’s a free for all now.


The frame comes from Lone Wolf Distributors and it brings some 1911 influence with it. That includes a change to the grip angle and a higher beavertail, but you can actually buy Lone Wolf Distributor parts, do the work yourself and save a lot of money..


The rest of the gun is precision Agency Arms parts and it is the result of years of tinkering. Is it worth $3000? Honestly we can’t see how. But, if somebody owns one and wants to tell us we’re wrong, we’re all ears.


Agency Arms Urban Combat. A custom Glock 19 with a fearsome reputation for accuracy, reduced recoil and repetition.

 

13. Agency Arms Urban Combat

  • Price: $2,299
  • Base Gun: Glock 19 Gen 3

You can have a custom Agency Arms Glock 19 or 17 in Agency Arms’ Urban Combat spec. We went for the custom Glock G19, just because it’s on sale right now.


Sale is a relative term, because this is still obscene money for a polymer gun. Custom Glocks tend to work that way.


This is a complete gun, stripped, fettled and fixed by Agency Arms. It’s the gen 3 Glock 19, turned into the perfect handgun.


So the grip is smoothed out to let you get that high-grip position. The trigger guard is perfectly undercut, too. As for the stippling, we’ll get to that.


You get other touches like the new trigger, extended magwell, match-grade barrel and all the other goodies. There are no magazine extensions here, but then this is a concealed carry gun at heart.


The Poster Child of Custom Glocks


Agency Arms has become the public face of modified Glocks. This is, in part, down to some seriously sharp marketing. It’s also because they make damn good guns. The Agency Ams Magwell was so good, Glock basically copied it in the Gen 5.


If you really have a tuned Glock itch and you want it for your EDC, your range gun, home defense and just about everything else, then you could do a lot worse than this RMR-ready lightweight special. Is it the best custom Glock in the world? It’s certainly close.


The Agency Arms magwell, trigger set and slide are basically beyond reproach and the Agency Arms barrel is a top seller on its own. You might feel better with a ZEV Technologies alternative, but that’s a subjective thing.


Again, you can buy a few Agency Arms parts & accessories for your Glock without spending thousands of dollars. Check out the full range here.



Where to Buy Agency Arms Glock Upgrades

It’s almost inconceivable to build a custom G19,17 or 34 without at least one part from Agency Arms. From the flared magwell through the ostentatious slide and match-grade barrels, Agency Arms has you covered.



14. Salient Arms Stryk A Strike One

  • Price: $1,995

Salient Arms appears to have dropped off the map of late.


Maybe the company was just ahead of its time, because Salient Arms paved the way for the likes of Agency Arms and ZEV Technologies. It was one of the first Glock tuners and long ago revealed plans for this custom gun.


The Salient Arms Stryk A Strike One is actually out there, though, and you can find it at odd gunbrokers around the country. Check Gunbroker.com or just Google it to find actual guns you can buy right now.


You will get a fluted match grade SAI barrel coated in Titanium Nitride, fiber optic sights and a total upgrade on the internals. It’s a good gun and you can see how it has influenced the current generation of Glock-based custom guns.


Wilson Combat Glock 19

 

15. Wilson Combat Glock 19 Gen 4

  • Price: $2000 (Estimated)
  • Base Gun: Glock 19 Gen 4

Wilson Combat made its name with seriously expensive 1911s and now it has finally joined the Glock party.


Pricing isn’t as clear as it is with the ore established Glock players, because Wilson Combat tends to do bespoke work.


Based on the guns for sale on its website, though, we think a Gen 5 Glock 19 with all the trimmings, including the starburst grip stippling, match grade barrel, modded slide and Armor-Tuff coating will set you back around $2000.


Is it worth it? Well unless they fit their own internals, we don’t really see how it stacks up and you might be paying for the name with this one. That’s a lot of money for largely factory parts.


You can just buy a few Wilson Combat parts, for your Glock custom works and your 1911s, here.



ZEV Technologies Z34 Dragonfly for sale. One of the greatest tuned Glocks of all time.

16. ZEV Technologies G34 Dragonfly

  • Price: $1465
  • Base Gun: Glock 34 Gen 4


We love the G34 concept for a custom Glock for sale. This was a custom gun conceived at the outset for better accuracy thanks to a longer barrel and other touches.


The 17+1 capacity is a nice touch and you can even get magazine extensions and go the full 30-round route if you want a home defense monster. Glock magazine extensions are available just about everywhere, so get the ones you like the look of.


Glock GES M.B.H designed the G34 as a target shooter’s gun and it turns out every week in shooting competitions round the country in stock form. So, if you’re going to throw the kitchen sink at a gun in terms of match-grade mods, it makes sense to do it to the best possible base weapon.


This is the price for black on black and you’ll need a gold barrel and ejection port cover to complete the look in the picture. Honestly, though, black on black is kind of enough in the flesh, so to speak. The gold can be a just a little bit gangsta.


An Agency Arms slide can cost almost $1,400. ZEV sell stripped slides through Brownells for just $525.99.


That is a bargain in this company. A lot of parts end up on sale, too, so if you like DIY gun build projects then you can save a fortune and build an epic gun from the parts bin.


But that’s just the start of the modifications. There’s a dimpled, match-grade barrel, combat sights and one of the best drop-in trigger sets in the business. The Fulcrum Ultimate trigger set might just be the best aftermarket Glock trigger out there, according to the user reviews on the gunbroker sites.


ZEV Triggers are Legendary


ZEV triggers are widely considered the best in the world. One of them on its own will transform your spongey Glock trigger.


This gun comes with a steel guide rod, ISMI recoil spring, a ZEV triggerspring, skeletonized striker and a striker spring, Add a stainless steel firing pin safety, an aluminum backplate, new slide stop, extended mag release and custom stippling. So, basically everything.


It’s a great gun and it should cost about $2000 when you’re done negotiating on a complete gun. If you’re going for a modified Glock, then get the best, most accurate gun you can. This might just be the one.


You don’t need the full works, of course. Build your gun out over time with ZEV Technologies parts & accessories that you can buy online here. Of course, you can buy a Glock 19 ZEV Tech, complete.



Danger Close Armament. A new addition to the custom gun world with a range of mods for the Glock, Sig Sauer line and even FN-509


17. Danger Close Armament Signature G19


  • Price: $1,499
  • Base gun: Gen 4 Glock 19


The Danger Close Armament Glock 19 package has a couple of standout points, but the main one is that it already offers an upgrade kit for the Gen 5 Glock 19. This is a Gen 4 start point, but the finished gun looks remarkably similar.


This is one of the first aftermarket slides for the Glock 19. The rest of the package is mainly cosmetic work, apart from that amazing stippling work.

Custom Stippling is Separate Service

Danger Close Armament calls this stippling brain texture, and it’s an ingenious, hydrophobic, non-slip grip. It looks the absolute business, in its own unique way, and it could be the new standard. The Cerakote finished frame is intriguing, but it’s the stipple and slide that really rock here.


Danger Close Armament has left the internals alone. That could have been to get the gun to market fast. Or it might be a vote of confidence. We have said for a while that the Glock Gen 5 trigger is better, much better, and maybe you don’t need to mess round in there anymore.


There will be an aftermarket drop-in trigger in the end, and it will be so much better that it will be worth it. But for now, we’re happy to acknowledge the Gen 5 Glock 19 is a big step forward when it comes to firing the thing.

Suarez Guttersnipe G43

18. Suarez Guttersnipe G43

Price: $1135


You have to send your Glocks to Suarez to get this price, but you’ll get a serious weapon back. It doesn’t just come with an RMR-milled slide, it comes with a red dot sight attached, as well as a new slide, polished internals and custom stippling.


The Guttersnipe package is a pretty solid deal actually, and you can pick and choose what you want if budget is an issue.


It isn’t the prettiest Glock custom gun here, and it’s the worst name by a long, long way. But it is one of the most effective weapons in your gun safes. So there’s that….



Patriot-Ordnance-Factory Glock 19 slide for sale

19. Patriot Ordnance Factory G-Series

  • Price: $458.91 (Slide only)

It’s just a slide for now, but Patriot Ordnance Factory is clearly dipping its toe in the Glock custom water to see if it can make money from custom gun parts & accessories.


The AR-15 specialist just won our best AR-15 for $1000 award with the entry-level POF Constable and now it is raining on Agency Arms’ and ZEV Tech’s parade by stomping into the lucrative Glock accessories and tuning space.


The slide looks decent and its priced below the absolute top line offerings. You could even say this slide is good value and it certainly changes the character of the gun. Not only that, it means you can get the most from the slide. You can even push check it if you want, and it’s ready for the RMR or just about any other sight.


There are more than enough cocking serrations for just about anybody, it looks good and it’s a cohesive design.


It might be the best of the custom gun slides for an EDC as it isn’t quite as perforated and fragile as the ZEV dragonfly. It’s this or the Agency Arms and this has a more natural sense of style.


I don’t buy the felt recoil BS, it’s not shaving that much weight off and I think that’s mostly in your head. It looks cool, though, and that might well be enough. We hope to see more from POF, as a full POF Glock custom conversion could be a total winner here.


Alphawolf Grey Man Singature Series custom Glock 19 modifications

20. Alphawolf Signature Series Grey Man


  • Price: $549.99
  • Base Gun: Glock 19 gen 4

Alphawolf is the signature line of Lone Wolf Distributors, who sell vast quantities of Glock custom parts & accessories on the open market.

You might also know the name because Lone Wolf Distributors makes the cutting edge frames for the hugely expensive Agency Arms NOC.

It’s almost perverse, then, that Lone Wolf Distributors focuses on the low-budget market with its custom slides and parts for Glocks.

There really isn’t much special about the Alphawolf. But it is cheap, effective and the scalloped slide work.


 

21. TTI Combat Carry G43

  • Price: $2,399

What gun will John Wick carry in the third film? I will hazard a guess that he’s going to switch his G26 for a G43, because it’s ready and waiting for him.


This is a tight interpretation of the compact Glock, with custom porting on the slide and the trademark mag extension. What is that grip tape all about though?


Thatt’s all you need for a firm grip, but it looks like a DIY solution rather than the finishing touch on a $2,400 custom handgun.


It’s a crazy price for such a small gun, we do agree, but it’s there if you want it! This is like a designer purse gun for the lady, or a kinda over-engineered sock gun for a guy. Either way it is one of the coolest little tuner Glocks out there.


And John Wick might use one of these Gucci Glock custom pistols, which you know is kind of cool.
