ZEV Z17 CITADEL STRIPPED SLIDE WITH RMR PLATE FOR GLOCK 17 GEN 5, GRAY COATING
No matter your slide grip location or preference during manipulation, the angled serrations of the Citadel help you maintain grip by naturally moving your hand downward and on to the slide when force is applied. The slide channels on top reduce glare to help maintain sight picture.
Our stainless steel slides are designed to improve accuracy and performance. They are manufactured in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility from a single billet of 17-4 stainless steel to tighter tolerances than factory slides for increased consistency in barrel lockup which improves accuracy.
All ZEV slides have our patented optic cut which features posts allowing for more thread area keeping your optic securely mounted to your slide. ZEV slides weigh less than factory slides, therefore reduce reciprocating weight, which reduces fatigue and allows for faster shot follow-up placement.

Will likely buy another.
The slide came with a channel liner already installed and I completed the internals with Glock factory parts. I oiled the slide liberally since the manual advises that, like many aftermarket parts, there is a break in period of about 200-250 rounds. After installing iron sights, I used the RMR cut to mount a Holosun 507c, the added thread area built into the slide is perfect and lets the screws holds the optic firmly, this combined with the precise milling of the optic footprint makes my red dot fit so snug and uniform that it almost looks like it was built into my sidearm. At the range, I only had a few hiccups the first 100 rounds or so, afterwards the slide was perfect, consistently feeding rounds and locking back on empty. It was at this time I became fully conscious of how fast this slide reciprocates, about twice as fast as a factory slide. The muzzleflip also seems to have decreased by about 10-20%.
