Segment 2: Slides

When we say slide... we don't mean this kind of slide.

At Faxon, our slides for M&P and our slides for G19 are 100% our own. We don't mill from blanks and templates! Just like our barrels, they come into our Cincinnati facility as bar steel!

Many factors go into determining why someone would want to swap out their slide be it aesthetics, grip, or mass reduction. A Faxon Slide is a great way to accomplish all of those needs.
