The ETHOS handgun modification package is designed from the ground up to be a fighting handgun. We’ve taken a venerable platform and tweaked it to meet our extremely high standards.
The grip is stippled to ensure secure purchase during long strings of rapid fire, with hands that are wet or bloody, or when dexterity is compromised by cold weather or gloves. We optionally remove finger grooves to fit the grip to our client’s hand, not the other way around. Additionally, we undercut the trigger guard to allow as high of a grip as possible, for greater recoil control without the discomfort of the infamous “Glock Knuckle” experienced by many with a stock trigger guard.
The ETHOS slide has been expertly milled by ATEi, and in keeping with their reputation they have turned every unused surface of the boring, factory rectangle of steel into an advantage. The muzzle end is narrowed and bullnosed to allow ease of re-holstering, while the enhanced forward cocking serrations do not extend across the frame rail channel where strength is of paramount importance. the forward cocking serrations, in conjunction with ATEi’s signature fish scale top serrations (developed in partnership with Steve Fisher of Sentinel Concepts) allow the end user the same confidence that our stippled grip does; any weather, any malfunction, one hand or two, the job will get done.
The ETHOS RMR cut is also done by ATEi, and is made-to-measure with recoil bosses for a specific RMR housing, providing a level of fit and optic protection not seen elsewhere in the industry. The slide is finished in QPQ (Black Nitride) to prevent corrosion and harden the surface of the steel. Optional cerakote is available, but will never be substituted for the QPQ, we don’t take shortcuts.
Naturally, the ETHOS comes with our tigger, tuned up and installed for a trigger press even cleaner and crisper than our drop in kits.
