Additional tactile surface - Get a grip!
The front serrations (FS) provide a different look and an
additional tactile surface choice when manipulating the
slide giving the operator positive traction even with wet
or sweaty hand. This new design offers the advantage
for professional users to do a fast press check before and
after firing. The user may grip the slide by the front serrations
with the weak hand and move it to the rear until a
clear view of the chamber is possible in order to ensure
that a round is properly chambered. When done correctly
the hand gets nowhere near the muzzle of the pistol.
Special run starting August 2017:
- G17 Gen4 FS
- G19 Gen4 FS
The configuration of the models for the special run includes steel front and rear sights, extended slide stop lever and extended reversible magazine catch.
GLOCK pistol models featuring slides with front serrations (FS) are available for a limited period of time.
