    Good Afternoon GT Members. Take a look as we just released Brass Slide Cover Plates with the choice of plain or one of our deep lasered engraved patterns.

    Those are pretty cool. Are you able to do any custom patterns/requests?

    Thank you.

    It's pretty nice
    I'd like one for the weight if they came blackened.

    What good are they? They look like flamboyent cosmetics that do nothing positive for weapon function. In fact, functional degradation may occur if the depth and location of seating for the Spring-Loaded Bearing is not exactly like that of the inexpensive OEM Slide Cover Plate.

    I would like to ask about a slide racker = wider back cover plate for a S&W M&P Shield 9mm 2.0.. With Grips.. Black in Color, Polymer or Aluminum..
    My brother had a stroke & has trouble with the slide of His M&P Shield..
    Springer Precision makes one for the shield that is wider on the left side, I was looking for one that is equally wide on each side.. Almost like the charging handle on a Ruger 22 pistol.

    I went thru eBay last night & looked at every product NZD makes for sale.. WOW!!
    There's so many products from magazine followers for shotguns to Glock aftermarket bling bling goodies in anodized aluminum or cera-coat etc.
    Thanks for offering them..

    +1; handful of my glocks have had their u.s. flag slide plates installed for some time and have no effect on guns.

    Personally this thread belongs in Gun parts and accessories not General Glocking.

    Why would they be an improvement over OEM?

    Been shooting one or two IPSC, USPSA, or 3-gun matches every weekend [with Glocks] since 1994.

    They get dropped, stepped on and abused on gravel, sand and concrete and never once have I had an OEM magazine or baseplates fail.

    Why fix what ain’t broken.

    That's an easy answer.
    In my experience, with oily hands sometimes I wish that my Glock cover plates afforded a little more traction.
    The point of my post above is function over form.
    Very happy that you like the Glock cover plates as is.
    I like 'em too.

    Deleted : Better not push my luck, I got my post disappeared for making a comment that didn't have anything to do with the subject in a thread that was in a place it wasn't supposed to be.

    It may be me getting disappeared the next time, so I think the Slide Cover plates would be cool done in blacked out bronze. That way the engraving would stand out.

    What does this have to do with the thread ? We’re talking about slide cover plates not mag base plates .

    Why brass other than it is easy to machine? Are you coating it as it will tarnish over time?

    Like he said (in the post)... he'd like a brass slide cover plate with the same (sharp) texturing as the pictured magazine floor plate, and in black.

    I'd worry a little about unwanted, distracting reflections off the polished brass finish.
