Glock 19 Custom Blue PVD Engraved DEATH TAROT 13 Slide
Custom Glock 19 Engraved slides are made from stainless steel, engraved by our artists then finished in PVD. This particular series features the Death Tarot design by Kade Strange, reimagined for the Glock Slide shape. We purposely design the art to function as the texture for cocking serrations.
Finished in Blue PVD. Blue PVD has a color play similar to titanium anodizing or color case.. rainbow hues that vary depending on depth and surface changes. Our Blue PVD slides will show coloration from deep sapphire blues, to red golds.. with highlights of purples and violets.
Our Glock 19 slides are GEN 3 and are a directly replacement for GEN 3 frames. However, our slide will fit on GEN 4 and GEN 5 frames with the addition of a slide gap plate, which is included. Please choose your GEN in the drop down menu. NOTE on GEN 5: We do not currently offer a complete slide kit for GEN 5. If purchasing for a GEN 5, please choose your correct GEN and choose our Slide Alone option, then finish with your Gen 5 slide parts kit/barrel of choice.
Our slides come in two variations.. Slide alone (stripped slide) and Complete Slide Kit (everything included minus sights).
Slide alone kits come as a stripped slide that you must finish.. you install the parts kit of your choice and barrel of your choice, and install the sights you prefer.
Complete Slide kits come with all the parts you need to finish your slide minus Sights. You will receive: True Precision Fluted Black Nitride 416 stainless Match grade barrel in 9mm, Rival Arms slide parts kit, Rival Arms Recoil spring kit, Wicked Grips Solid Bronze Skull rear Slide plate, and on GEN 4 a strike industries Slide adapter plate. We can assemble the slide for you before shipping if you so choose, or send as a kit, just let us know in the notes section during check out!
Sights: We can install sights for you in house, and we recommend the Mepro Tru Dot amongst others to fit our slides. Please contact us directly via email at email@example.com to discuss your needs so we can give you an accurate quote for cost and lead time.
Our slides have been mounted on factory frames and tested before engraving or finish. They are ready to install on factory OEM frames. Our assembled slides will come ready to install on your factory frame minus sights. Working on firearms does require a certain level of training and the proper tools to install. While we do warranty our parts for workmanship and quality, we cannot cover damage from abuse or negligence. We will not warranty damage issues that arise during installation from the misuse of tools, or not using proper technique. We strongly recommend that if you are not a certified gunsmith or Glock Armorer, or an experienced builder with the proper tools that you have a professional assist you.
We recommend a light grease or oil lubrication on internals then a trip to the range with factory ammunition to wear in your new slide and parts. We chose Rival arms and True Precision for their quality as well as “Made in the USA” status.
Care of PVD: PVD coatings can discolor with fingerprints or oils. This is normal, and can be easily cleaned using a 70% alcohol wipe. Please do not use harsh abrasives, polishes, buffers or chemicals on your slides finish. Just wipe down with clean cloth or alcohol wipe. There is no need whatsoever for brake cleaners or other caustic chemicals. PVD is a jewelry level of finish that has been used for years in high end firearm finishes, and will give you years of enjoyment as long as its not abused.
Please see photos below for reference. YOU ARE NOT PURCHASING A COMPLETE FIREARM. SLIDE ONLY. Photos show both Completed slide kit on and off Gen 3 frame, as well as Slide without barrel or parts.
