Faxon Firearms unleashes a new M&P pistol slide series onto Smith & Wesson fans, launching two new designs in the lineup — the Patriot and Hellfire slide profiles.

Machined in-house from 17-4 stainless steel, the slides readily accept Glock sights and feature a Diamond-Like Carbon, or DLC, finish. The slides come equipped with an enhanced front, rear and top serrations, placed to help owners during slide manipulations.

The slides are optics-ready, with each profile available either a Trijicon RMR cut or a multi-optics mounting system which tackles the Vortex Venom, Vortex Viper or Burris FastFire.

“We’re excited to continue our growth into the pistol market with our M&P Patriot and Hellfire slides. Manufacturing slides completely in-house from bar stock gives us the ability to create new profiles and optics mounting solutions that many other companies simply can’t achieve,” Bob George, Director of Sales and Business Development at Faxon Firearms, said in a press release. “Coupled with our Match Series pistol barrels, we really have a strong and innovative offering for our customers.”

MSRP on the Patriot is $499 while the Hellfire retails for $525. Both slides will be on display at the NRA’s Annual Meeting in Dallas May 4-6.
