A year after Brownells introduced drop-in slides for Gen 3 Glock pistols, the company is back with more Glock slides — this time for Gen 4 Glock 17 and 19 pistols.

The Brownells slides come in two models — an iron sight slide and a RMR cut slide. The iron sight model offers a cut-out for iron sights while the RMR cut is milled for Trijicon RMR red-dot sights.

Both variants are machined from 17-4 stainless steel with a nitride finish to prevent corrosion and premature wear and tear on the drop-ins. The slides benefit from wrap-around serrations that cover the top of the slide and provide greater texture for shooters to grasp.

“Though Glock handguns are known for their reliability under extreme conditions, machines can malfunction, and they’ll do so often at the most inopportune times. If you need to clear a malfunction from your slide, having a design like the Brownells Gen 4 Glock Iron Sight Slide makes manipulation fast and easy,” Brownells said in a statement.

Though the exterior differs from Glock’s factory slides, its internal dimensions remain the same as OEM slides; therefore all aftermarket and factory accessories and parts will coincide with the Brownells slide. Both versions of the slide can be ordered with an optional window cut on the top for greater cooling as well as a reduced overall weight.

The Iron Sight Slide for the Gen 4 Glock 17 and 19 retails for $199 while the RMR cut version comes in slightly higher at $229.
