Slide on Over | Strike Industries Releases the LITESLIDE and Slide Completion Kit for Glock
Strike Industries is releasing the LITESLIDE and Slide Completion Kit for your Glock G19 GEN3, And soon, the G17 option.
Created with optimal accuracy and performance, according to Strike Industries, it’s the perfect upgrade to your Glock.
Made in the USA the SI LITESLIDE is machined billet 17-4 stainless steel. Using clockwork precision, we’re told it ensures increased consistency in barrel lockup, leaving you with levels of match-grade accuracy.
We’re also told that the SI LITESLIDE weighs less than the factory production model, significantly less, which is intended to reduce recoil momentum. It also allows faster and more efficient follow-up placement, according to Strike Industries.
And the company didn’t stop there. They also designed the LITESLIDE for durability and function, while keeping the styling they’re known for.
The design includes what they call a large, enhanced aggressive front and rear serration. The serrations are intended to aid in manipulating the slide, so you can check or clear a chamber jam.
Combined with the SI Universal Optic Mount cut, Strike Industries says you can easily and securely mount most of your favorite optics without having to worry about getting the slide machined.
And if that’s not enough for you, a removable cover plate comes with the SI LITESLIDE, so you can customize it. You’ll also find all the necessary screws and posts needed for most optics.
Note: Channel liner is needed to complete slide
For example, If you’re looking to place a red dot sight on your Glock 19 GEN3, there are several optics compatible with the SI LITESLIDE. Trijicon RMR, Burris FastFire, Doctor Red Dot Sight, EOTech MRDS, Holosun 407/507/508/509, Leupold DeltaPoint, SIG SAUER ROMEO 01, Sightmark Mini Shot M-Spec FMS, and Vortex Viper/Venom are all compatible.

Ashley Bunch is the first Tennesse-born Mag Life…we think. She’s an Air Force Security Forces veteran and former dog-handler-turned-journalist (like, real journalist, with an advanced degree and previous internships at big publications and everything). As you might expect from someone who works with us, she’s a bit of a smartass, a dedicated student of the hoplological arts (and the recent recipient of a Masters Degree in Psychology!), an ardent traveler, and more than a bit of a foodie. Ashley is a dangerous girl, particularly if your first name is Channel, Flathead, or Blue — Bunch has kilt and eaten many an insolent catfish. She’d rather be camping and fishing than just camping, just camping rather than just hiking, and just hiking rather than sitting at home. If she is sitting at home, however, there’s likely a big damn jar of sweet tea and a whole pile of books somewhere nearby.
