SHOT Show 2019 SHOT 2019, Attack Of The Glock Clones? Patrick Roberts January 20, 2019 Every year at SHOT Show, there seems to be a theme among the new product releases. Last year seemed to be the year of the Roland Special & pistol comps, the year prior was pistol caliber carbines, before that was the modular rifles and suppressors. We are already seeing a trend forming here, Glock clones. Brownells has been killing it with the exclusive Polymer80 options as well as their bargain-priced slides. With the success that Brownells saw with the Polymer80 frames and Brownells produced slides, it was only a matter of time for other manufacturers to jump on the Glock clone bandwagon. Leading up to the show season Brownells even launched new Gen4 Glock slides, View this post on Instagram Another good lookin' Polymer 80 build! This one hails from the the Pacific Northwest as @pnw_pew makes some long slide action happen with an @apextactical Trigger & @inforce01 APL! Just imagine what you could build! #brownells #glock #glockporn #guns #gun #poly80 #p80 #apextactical #inforce #longslide #pistol #handgun #gunporn #gunsdaily #gunfanatics #pewpew A post shared by Brownells, Inc. (@brownellsinc) on Oct 20, 2018 at 6:52pm PDT The Glock clone army that might invade the 2019 SHOT Show really started on the floor of SHOT 2018 with the announcement of the PF940SC and the serialized PF940C frames. Could this have been foreshadowing of the impending invasion? View this post on Instagram The #PF940SC sample from Media day at the range. Big thank you to @true_precision_inc for sending us G26 barrels, they performed great! #polymer80 #p80 #trueprecision #glock #glock26 #glock27 #sickguns #glockporn #gunsdaily #pistols #gunsofinstagram #gunsofig #diy #builtnotbought #innovateordie A post shared by Polymer80 (@polymer80inc) on Jan 24, 2018 at 9:54am PST Our friends over at Grey Ghost Precision dropped their Combat Pistol frame on us back in August, giving Glock builders yet another option. The Combat Pistol frame has a distinctive texture and is ready to build on right out of the box.

View this post on Instagram Dealer preorders for #PF45 begin Friday. Customer preorders should begin shortly after! The PF45™️frame is compatible with Gen3 G20/21 components, and will come with a finishing jig, front/rear rail modules as well as the necessary drill bits and end mill. • • • • • #glock #9mm #polymer80 #p80 #engageyourfreedom #diy #builtnotbought #innovateordie #glock19 #igmilitia #pistol #gunsdaily #concealedcarry #2a #pewpew #gunchannels #sickguns #gun #weaponsdaily #ar15 A post shared by Polymer80 (@polymer80inc) on Oct 24, 2018 at 9:16am PDT As for this year? We've seen a slew of new Glock clones announced like the Alpha Foxtrot aluminum frame, and the new Zev OZ9 pistol kicking the show season off strong. Following those, Faxon Firearms released their FX-19 pistol that appears to be based on a Faxon specific Poly80 frame. View this post on Instagram Dual textures on our FX-19 grips and double undercuts on the trigger guard. Check it out at Shot Show. Booth 10072! A post shared by Faxon Firearms (@faxonfirearms) on Jan 18, 2019 at 5:12pm PST If the Faxon pistol doesn't do it for you, how about the new Glock build kit from Agency? This one came as the biggest surprise to us given Agency's history producing some of the nicest Glocks on the planet. If you scoop one of these up, not only do you get an Agency stippled frame but also a lower parts kit and their Syndicate slide. View this post on Instagram Full Syndicate kit. Our complete Syndicate slide assembly with Syndicate barrel, serrated blacked out iron sights, Syndicate polymer trigger, stippled @polymer80inc frame in its 80% form, the P80 jig and tools, and lower parts kit. MSRP $1200. These will be heading to dealers this week! . . . #Syndicate #DoubleAgent #Agent #Agency #AgentLife #AgencyLife #AgencyArms #TradeCraft #GotSerrations #WelcomeToTheBrotherhood A post shared by Agency Arms (@agencyarms) on Jan 15, 2019 at 5:48pm PST I think that it's pretty safe to assume that the show floor is going to be littered with Glock clones built on their very own platform like the ZRO Delta Genesis Z9 or the half a dozen “new” pistols being offered that have a Polymer80 frame. There are likely several other new Glock clone options that have been overlooked in the sea of plastic fantastic. Regardless of what this year's theme turns out to be, we will be pleased with any new products announced. After all, variety is the spice of life.
