    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.

    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 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-.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
