Glock Picture Thread

Boom has G17 and G34 steel slides for VFC Glocks.

G19, G17 and G34. All of them in excess of $360...

EDIT: For reference, Guarder's steel G19, G17 and G34 slides are $140-$185. The price difference between the two leaves you enough left over to buy one of their new complete lower frames. You'd need to add a nozzle, hop-up unit and inner barrel but you get very nearly a completely upgraded gun for the price of a single slide set.

Without any first-hand experience with 5KU, I would say Guarder. Tried and tested brand that works and is well made, IMO.

Highly doubtful that they will be a perfect match (or even close) because it's different manufacturers and also most likely different base materials (aluminum/steel/pot metal) and coatings/coating methods. No way to tell how well they match up from just pictures. If you want the items matching as closely as possible your best bet is to find both barrel and spring guide from the same manufacturer in gold finish.

Well, gold is a bit to blingy for my taste but I get what you are going for. In that case your best bet is gold parts from the same manufacturer or having black parts from the same manufacturer refinished in "gold" but that will probably be very expensive.

Never got this new fad with golden guns.

You don't like it?, the combination gold/matte black looks sophisticate,... well for my personal taste!, and that glock is like a john wick's gun

Not personally, no. For me, genuine weapons and Airsoft weapons are pieces of kit. Supposed to be battered and abused, serve a purpose but as a tool, nothing more.

 

Bling and shiny red, blue, gold guns and cradled weapons just baffle me!

The gold is supposedly Titanium Nitride coating, the same coating seen on some drill bits and cutting tools. For airsoft it's entirely looks, but for real steel it does have good properties for steel exposed to a lot of heat... so you'd almost need to add another cosmetic black coating just to cover the gold if you want that physical property on the metal's surface.

Real steel guns and airsoft can't be abused in the same way, finishes are differents, the metal parts are differents too, so every or mostly all external parts are just for looks.

Personal tastes for all!
