1 week turnaround
*(with the exception of 17L or 41 slides - 2-3 week turnaround)


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 *(see all notes including Gen5 exceptions in the Notes on Glock OEM Slides section
  • Choose which optic you are going to use:
    • If the drop down menu includes the optic you intend to use we have the programming done and do not need your optic.
    • If you plan on purchasing an optic at the time of purchase from us still select the dropdown applicable. 
    • If you'd like us to cut your slide for an optic not shown in the dropdown menu please select customer optic and mail it to us. We will make every effort to program for your optic and cut your slide. 1 week turnaround would not be possible if we have to program for your optic.


General Notes:

  • 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:

Leupold DeltaPoint PRO Purchase Leupold DeltaPoint PRO here

Price now includes drilling the rear sights on the combat cut version to allow adjustment of the red dot sight (when ordered at the same time).

*Please note* 
  • Position Notes: Combat is with standard rear dovetail. Combat with Leupold Rear utilizes Leupold's rear iron sight. Race has no backup sights. Race w/ front dovetail uses a standard dovetail in front of the optic. 
  • In order to co-witness with the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro's, the following sights are the ONLY compatible suppressor height sights:
    • LEU-DPPROIRONS - DeltaPoint Pro rear sight with Ameriglo front sight
    • AME-GL507 - with a height of .407" front, and .507 rear

  • Due to the size of the Gen4  9mm, .40, and 357 models, a slight modification to the safety plunger is required

  • Combat Cut using this sight on a Gen5 Glock cannot be performed due to the safety plunger.  However, a Race Cut with Forward Dovetail can be performed with this optic.


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 adjustments with audible clicks allow for quick windage and elevation adjustments
  • Suitable for military, law enforcement and hunting applications

Burris FastFire II Purchase Burris II here 

Price now includes drilling the rear sights on the combat cut version to allow adjustment of the red dot sight (when ordered at the same time).

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.
  • Gen4 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. 
  • Combat Cut using this sight on a Gen5 Glock cannot be performed due to the safety plunger.  However, a Race Cut with Forward Dovetail can be performed with this optic.
*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.
  • Combat Cut using this sight on a Gen5 Glock cannot be performed due to the safety plunger.  However, a Race Cut with Forward Dovetail can be performed with this optic.
*Due to the size of the Gen4 9mm, .40, and 357 models, a slight modification to the safety plunger is required


Vortex Viper Purchase Vortex Viper here

The Viper has its adjustment locking screws located in the back of the housing. Price now includes drilling the rear sights on the combat cut version to allow adjustment of the red dot sight (when ordered at the same time).

Buy suppressor sights here: TRITIUM SETPLAIN FRONTPLAIN REAR


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

The Vortex Razor is too large to fit on 9/40/357 slides, however the 10/45 slides are wide enough to accept the Razor.


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 RMS 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.


Nikon Spur
  • Combat Cut using this sight on a Gen5 Glock cannot be performed due to the safety plunger.  However, a Race Cut with Forward Dovetail can be performed with this optic.



Notes on Glock OEM Slides:

  • Combat Cuts on Gen5 Slides - Due to position of the safety plunger, this cut is NOT available for Vortex Venom, Burris FastFire3 and Delta Point Pro sights.  However, we can do a Race cut with forward dovetail.

  • 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 which can be found on the refinishing page.  


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.

TruGlo 231G1MW (MOS Height)
These sights will not work with any standard combat cut mounting. They will work with race cuts with forward dovetails however. 


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 and lead time increases to 2-3 weeks
  • 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
  • Turn around time is 1 week for slide melts and 2-3 weeks for slide melts for 17L and 41 due to cavity fill
  • Glock OEM slides are known to have variable dovetail locations.  If your factory dovetail is too far forward it will NOT accommodate a combat cut using some larger optics. You will be notified if there is a problem
