Grey Ghost Precision's new 9mm Glock 19-sized pistol is finally here and should be available for purchase in August 2018. At TriggrCon 2018 in Bellevue, WA, we were able to put some rounds through it.

Grey Ghost's intention with the Combat Pistol-C is to offer a pistol that comes out-of-the-box with all of the modifications and upgrades that an end user would typically look for in a Glock-style pistol.

The polymer frame should look familiar, as Grey Ghost partnered with Polymer80 on it. It features all of the enhancements you'd expect from a Polymer80 frame, including a nicely contoured and undercut trigger guard, a beavertail to prevent slide bite, a flared mag well, a Picatinny rail on the dust cover for lights, a flat backstrap, and aggressive texturing. Look closely at the grip, and you'll realize the texturing on the side panels is actually a GGP logo.

GGP's been making their own Glock slides for some time now, and the CP-C features a new variation on the theme with machining on all surfaces to be attractive and functional.  Made of 17-4 billet stainless steel, the slide is cut for a Trijicon RMR and comes with a custom G10 plate cover and two sets of screws. The slide is topped with Night Fision tritium sights with a highly prominent front dot and two dots on the rear. GGP machines the slide with tighter tolerances than stock, mating nicely with its match-grade, twist button pulled, black nitrided barrel.


The flat-faced CMC trigger broke crisply and cleanly, and in our short range session, we found the pistol to be well-sorted and thoughtfully specced out. The grip was comfortable and the texturing effective. If you don't like the standard Glock grip angle, you'll probably like this one. However, if you're perfectly happy with regular Glocks, the difference is subtle enough that you should be able to adjust quickly.

The slide cuts span the length of both sides and the top of the slide, working well for all manner of manipulations — whether you like to work the rear or front of the slide, and from above or below. We only ran a couple mags through the gun, but it was a nicely tuned gun, very controllable under recoil and putting rounds on target effortlessly. The Night Fision front sight was very quick to pick up as well.

As you might expect from a company like GGP, the gun comes with a custom carrying case, as well as three Magpul PMAGs. The Combat Pistol-C will be available at Rainier Arms, with an expected MSRP of $1,499.

GGP also had a prototype of a new pistol comp for Glocks. They're still tweaking it but expect that it'll be released for sale late in the year. Pricing is expected to be under $100.
