HGW Apollo Slide for Glock 19 Gen 3, 9mm. For install on Glock 19 lower, or other compatible aftermarket. HGW exclusive Apollo 17-4 Stainless Steel Slide. 100% made in USA. Unique bead blasting media gives a warmer tone and richer finish than the competition, which is still just enough noticeable under the black nitride. Support an excellent veteran owned company, working to be the absolute best. This model, like HGW TItan, make up our top of the line slide models, starting with the most expensive slide blank common to the industry.
The Apollo Slide is Hooper Gun Works follow-on design to our Titan slide, both of which are personally designed and evolved in CAD by Mr. Hooper. The Apollo is also by far our most difficult to machine slide, and requires both specialized machining equipment and custom made tooling to perform the unique radius-chamfer top cut. This gives an ultra-light, and ultra-smooth for carry capability, while allowing for the aggressiveness in appearance that custom build folks love so much. The other feature that makes this slide so unique, is the heavy draft angle on the side window area, allowing for an excellent high-purchase grip towards the front of the slide for racking, as well as an appearance reminiscent of what “tri-top” 1911’s do in their uniqueness.
All that, and it is available as a component slide for your custom build as you see best.
