    Front sight came loos after first range time, less than 150 rounds. maybe some blue loctite the next time would be nice, if there is a next.

    Top notch company!!! I received my slide within a couple weeks after ordering, it looked and ran great, unfortunately there was a small ridge on the chamber face that I didn’t even notice until I ran some rounds through it. It was just enough to slightly dent the fired case head, I reload my ammo or I probably wouldn’t have worried about it. I gave Rock Slide a call, they said no problem, sent a postage paid return label and I had a replacement slide within two weeks. The slide is flawless, the finish is awesome, it fits the frame great, looks and runs great. I had the venom sight cut which fits absolutely perfect. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and the great customer service. I highly recommend Rock Slide USA to anyone who is looking for a quality custom slide. Check out the other products they offer too, I picked up a SilencerCo threaded barrel and extra mags for my Glock 17 and the pricing on everything is very reasonable.

    This thing is just awesome, took a few mags to break in but runs flawlessly

  17. Robert Anderson (verified owner)

    Works good, needs to be broke in . I got it here because it is different from other companies.

  18. Brian (verified owner)

    Haven’t shot the gun I built but looks and feels good and the price was great

  19. Josh (verified owner)

    Awesome upper, it just works. Needed about 50 rounds to cycle properly but it might be my crap steel case ammo. Excellent upper.

  20. Jason S. (verified owner)

  24. Ali (verified owner)

    I really like the multi options of the color and design and all what I want to build my gun so I don’t have to somewhere else to get the parts!

  25. Tony D. (verified owner)

    Very impressed, excellent quality. I would dock it half a star only because the slide came assembled which was nice but, someone failed to locktite the front sight blade screw. It runs very well with my Rock Island/Armscor 22TCM9R barrel. Definitely made a mistake by not ordering ROCK SLIDE USA’S 9mm barrel which I will be doing soon so I can switch back and forth calibers . I would also like to see ROCK SLIDE USA make magwells that fit the Poly80 frames.

    I am running this on a P80 lower – PF940v2. I have about 1000 rounds through this setup with only a handful of issues, most of which occurred in the first 75 rounds (poor Gen 3 ejector). Great slide quality and FDE cerakote finish. I would highly recommend this setup to anyone.

    The Slide and components are perfect I took it to the range and shot 600 rounds first trip with only one or two stove pipe with older magazines

  28. James Allen (verified owner)

    took a few rounds and little extra oil to get it going. it wasn’t going into battery completely and made me cuss a little. but took it out today and it was flawless. works great with my Venom and DXT suppressor height night sights

    The slide combo I ordered was great, I looked all over the internet for reviews and they were all pretty good. I was having issues with my build, but it wasn’t the slide it was the p80. I corrected the issues and polished up parts of the slide and the build is now flawless. I’m very happy with the look and performance of this build. Thank you Rock Slide USA!

    Price was great, fit was perfect. good quality in the slide production. Only issue with slide, the finish was scratched off from the installation on the rear site. The barrel has lots of machine marks on the flat surfaces. The slide is A+, the internals of the slide are A+. The barrel functions just fine, but the marks drop it to a B-.

  46. Randy Z. (verified owner)

    I put together and shot over 200 rnds out of it looks and performed great . Definitely will buy again. Great job rockslide. Hopefully you will build some for the .45 glock

  48. ERIK (verified owner)

    The slide was purchased with internal parts and sights already installed. Did not cost a dime extra to have the do that. Slide and barrel are absolutely perfect. Cerakote finish is flawless and it is cerakoted inside and out. I have looked and looked and unless you know what to look for you will not see a trace of machining marks. I am very pleased with RockSlideUSA. I will be returning for more products. Have not had a single issue with my build. Their pricing is absolutely budget friendly but make no mistake, the quality of their products is second to none.

    Great design, finish appears to be very solid, and tolerances seem to be spot on. Would highly recommend for either a Polymer build or a slide upgrade.

    Customer service is top notch!

  54. lewis garland (verified owner)

    The product is great the price is well this is my second P80 Build and i have since just bought two other pistols same model for $399-$499 so other than the novelty of building it yourself its cheaper to buy completed Pistols. But the Product is great and i love it

  55. Patrick (verified owner)

    I’ve NEVER reviewed a product online. I’m cautious to leave one now, hoping Rock Slide won’t increase their prices. Awesome product! Fit, finish and function were spot on. I was on the fence of which slide to go with. I’m very happy with Rock Slide. Zero hesitation to buy from them again. I purchased the slide with the upper parts kit. It came assembled correctly. Throw it on and have fun!

  56. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Put the slide on a Polymer 80 frame. Worked great. Very impressed with the overall quality of all the parts. Especially the barrel, can’t go wrong at $50.

    I just went to the range with my P80 and my buddies P80. I had a different slide/barrel on mine by another manufacturer whom goes by ZP. My buddies had the Rock Slide and barrel combo. Well, after shooting both 9MM G17 knock offs, his WAY outperformed mine. I even had a Holosun sight on mine and his had the night sights only. Still at 60+ feet off a 2′ x 2′ steel plate, I hit with his (Rock Slide/Barrel) almost every time….except when the plate was spinning. Mine had a good hit % but nowhere near his. It was a semi-rapid fire drill. All in all, the Rock Slide/barrel combo was less expensive, looks as good but out performed a more expensive option (without a sight nonetheless). If you have issues with pistol performance, it’s not the slide or barrel, but probably the tolerance stacking of the parts you’re pistol has. I recommend polishing/lightly sanding the safety plunger and the front edge of the “gooseneck” on the trigger bar. Those seem to cause issues regardless of the upper used. If you have to pull the trigger to get the slide on….that’s your issue, not the slide. Rock Slide makes VERY good products and will be my go to from now on! Their customer service is also unmatched in this industry. Very helpful and friendly. You simply cannot go wrong with them. All my buddies are using their slides/barrels now and I haven’t heard a single complaint. In fact, they are all super happy and also recommend them. For the price, the quality is unmatched and well worth it! Don’t waste your time on others, just buy Rock Slide stuff!
