Love it or hate it the aftermarket world for the Glock series of handguns is exploding. One particular side of this market that is taking off are custom slide shops. They’ve come about for a variety of reasons. Stock Glocks are very capable firearms but leave something to desired with general ergonomics / features. Large and small custom shops are popping up around the country and out of these we have a couple of top dog competitors. One of these companies is JagerWerks. What makes JagerWerks different? Many things, particularly their wait times, engineering and cost.
I had the unique opportunity to talk with the folks over at JagerWerks about their company, philosophy, how they started and some of their excellent products. JagerWerks in particular specializes in machining Glocks to produce desirable features such as front slide serrations (allows grip during certain weapon manipulations, lightens slide), carbon kap (a carbon made cap which fits where they mill the slide for an RMR, it returns the weapon to stock functionality but due to the nature of the material used is extremely light and durable in nature) and milling slides precisely for optics.
