Customizing GLOCK handguns for performance enhancement has become quite common thanks to the multitude of aftermarket components available and the platform’s DIY friendly nature. Rival Arms, a relatively new company on the GLOCK aftermarket scene, has quickly become the go-to source for those looking to upgrade their pistols with premium components.

Recently, the company introduced their new Faction Series Build Kits for the GLOCK G17 and G19 handguns. Crafted for the DIY enthusiast, the made-in-the-USA Faction Series Build Kits come with everything you need to build a GLOCK-style slide assembly, minus the sights. The slides even come with an optic cut so you can install a red dot without the expense of gunsmith work.

Another standout of the Rival Arms Faction Series is the finish. The Faction Series slides come in either a Ready Red or Battle Bronze grunge-style patina, which really puts a cool-looking spin on the finished assembly.

If you’ve never assembled a GLOCK slide before, know that it is a straightforward process that requires only minimal tools and is easily done in the home workshop or on the kitchen table. The above video shows all the steps and tools involved.
