If you are using your own optic (not buying a new one from us) you MUST select customer supplied optic and then send it in to us for processing. We cannot machine a slide without the optic in hand. We cut every slide custom, we do not cut to an optic on the shelf as it may differ slightly from your particular optic.


Ordering is simple:

Choose type of slide:
  • Glock OEM - This is your factory slide
  • LWD & AW Stainless Steel - This is our aftermarket stainless steel slide (including our Featureless Slides)
  • Smith & Wesson Shield

Choose where you want it installed:
  • Race Mount - Mills the slide including removing rear dovetail to allow a smoother installation and elimination of iron sights.
  • Race Mount w/ Front Dovetail - Same as Race Mount but cuts a dovetail in front of RDS for a "combat cut" with forward rear sight.
  • Combat Mount - Allows use of backup iron sights by moving sight forward.

 Choose which optic you are going to use:

  • For each cut, we use the manufactures specifications for your particular optic, however we do still require to have the optic in hand for machining in case of minor adjustments.
  • If you need to purchase an RMR, please see the links below.

 
 How to send in your RMR sight:

  • Lone Wolf Distributors now taps all slide melts to the manufacturers specifications.  
  • Please send the screws in with your sight so that the sight can be installed on the slide before sending back.
  • If the screws are not sent in, the sight will not be installed.  
  • If screws are not available, we offer replacement screws for Burris, Leupold, and Trijicon HERE


Notes on specific optics
:

Trijicon RMR's Purchase Trijicon RMRs here
  • Improve precision and accuracy.
  • Housed in rugged aluminum, the RMR is extremely tough yet lightweight.
  • Easy to use adjusters with audible clicks allow for quick windage and elevation adjustments.
  • Suitable for military, law enforcement and hunting applications.



Burris FastFire III Purchase Burris FastFire III 3MOA here   Purchase Burris Fast Fire III 8MOA w/Pic Mount here

  • The FF3 uses a light sensor in the front of the optic.  When melted, the auto sensitivity mode may not work well and if using a front dovetail mount, the sensor will be blocked completely. 
  • Glock 9/40/357SIG OEM slides may not have enough room between the dovetail and breechface for a proper combat cut. When the slide arrives, we'll measure it and if it's too tight, you'll be able to either do a race mount, or front dovetail mount. 
*Due to the size of the 9mm, .40, and 357 models, a slight modification to the safety plunger is required




Vortex Venom Purchase Vortex Venom here

  • The Venom uses the same footprint as the Burris FF3 so it works in all the same applications. 
  • Glock 9/40/357SIG OEM slides may not have enough room between the dovetail and breechface for a proper combat cut. When the slide arrives, we will measure it and if it's too tight, you'll be able to either do a race mount, or front dovetail mount. 
  • The depth of the cut may require a modification to the safety plunger.  We will perform the modification here free of charge, but if the safety plunger is changed afterwards, the new one will require modification.
*Due to the size of the 9mm, .40, and 357 models, a slight modification to the safety plunger is required




Vortex Viper Purchase Vortex Viper here

Vortex Razor Purchase Vortex Razor Red Dot 3 MOA here    Purchase Vortex Razor Red Dot 6 MOA here

*Due to the size of the 9mm, .40, and 357 models, a slight modification to the safety plunger is required



 
C-More Micro Red Dot 

Most C-More sights can only be done as a race mount on 10mm or 45ACP slides. 9/40/357 slides are too narrow for most C-More's.




Shield Purchase Shield Mini 4MOA here

  • The Shield RMS optic can only be done as a race mount on the S&W Shield and G43 slides as the rear of the optic has rear irons built in.  G42 slide is too narrow for the Shield RMS optic.  
  • All other slides - we suggest race mount only due to included rear irons.  However, a combat cut is available if suppressor sights are used.

Notes on Glock OEM Slides:

  • Machining for an optic on a Glock OEM slide results in exposed metal that is prone to rust. We offer a discounted rate for Cerakote when bundled with machining. You can also refinish it in Black Oxide or TiN which can be found on the refinishing page
  • Glock OEM slide melts are slightly more expensive due to the hard coating wearing out tooling faster. They also include a full inspection of parts by our armorer's. 


Notes on specific iron sights
:


XS Suppressor Sights
We cannot drill adjustment screw holes in XS suppressor sights. This affects Burris FF2, Leupold DeltaPoint PRO's, and any other optics that have screws in the rear body.


Important Disclaimers:
  • No returns or refunds are issued on custom services.
  • Price does not include the optic.
  • We can do a slide melt on an OEM Glock 41 and 17L for an additional $40 due to having to fill the large cavity before machining.
  • We do not offer this service on Glock 42 or 43 (with the exception of the Shield optic on the G43 and S&W Shield), as the slide is too narrow.
  • General turnaround time is 3-4 weeks for slide melts.
  • Some Glock OEM slides are coming to us with dovetails too far forward to do a combat cut with larger optics. There is variance to where the dovetail on some Glocks. When we encounter this, 

Lone Wolf recommends these Red Dot Sights and Lone Wolf Stainless Steel Slides
