Whether you’re focused on self-defense, home defense, or range time, there’s something good to be said for a quality optics-ready handgun. After all, the last thing you want to do when you have a gun to run is take time out to have the slide milled or to find a mounting plate for a red dot sight. The G-Force Arms Equalizer GF9 is one such pistol that’s optics ready, chambered in 9mm, and designed for serious shooters.
G-Force Arms provided details of the GF9:
Rich in features, the Equalizer boasts front and rear slide serrations for fast weapon manipulation. Out of the box fiber optic sights are equipped, and an optics ready slide able to mount any red dot using a RMR footprint. A 3.25” 9mm precision barrel to ensure you are putting accurate rounds on target. With aggressive stippling on the grip and thumb rest, the Equalizer makes recoil management easy. A flat faced trigger aids in a smooth trigger pull. In addition, four grip backstraps are included (0°, 2°, 4°, and 6°) to create the perfect grip angle for the shooter.
Heavy in glock compatibility, the GForce Equalizer is a game changer for aftermarket part support. Fully customizable trigger, slide, barrel, sights, and optics. This allows the end user to truly make the Equalizer their own; with the additions of different trigger weight, slide ergonomics, barrels and suppressors, as well as red dots.
