Introducing the GGP-26 Slide

 

Wallace, ID – If you thought Grey Ghost Precision was done innovating GLOCK® slides, you’d be dead wrong. The double-stack subcompact wonder known as the G26 just got its own GGP slide with a killer new serration pattern that you’ve never seen before.

Having already engineered their G19, G17 and even SPG43 slides with tightened tolerances in multiple unique patterns, you might be asking yourself why the G26? According to GGP VP of Firearms Jason Curns, the G26 is still a widely used sidearm that many professionals use as a backup, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of concealed carriers that use the G26 as their EDC pistol. “The GGP-26 slide benefits from the same accuracy-improving tolerances that we’ve seen from our GGP-17 and GGP-19 slides. With a shorter barrel, any buff to your G26’s accuracy is a welcome improvement. Dropping in our slide with its critical tolerances (along with using a match grade barrel) should tighten your group sizes… if you, the shooter, are doing your job of course!”

In addition to the match grade properties of the slide’s tolerances, Grey Ghost Precision also gave the GGP-26 slide a unique slide cut that stands apart from the 6+ slide patterns that can be seen in their product lines. The front of the slide has a deep taper with stepped serrations, within that they get deeper as they progress toward the chamber area. It’s like a sunken living room for your sausage fingers that ends with a substantial ledge for ultimate leverage during press checks and malfunction clearing. “In a gunfight, every millisecond matters,” says GGP Engineer Jason Fancher. “The deep front serration is our most aggressive design yet, and for good reason. If it’s ‘go time’ and the pistol in your hands is a subcompact, you’ll need the ability to charge it and manipulate it with authority.” The rear serrations mimic this design, but at a standard depth.

The front step serrations gradually get deeper the further back they go.

 

Let’s talk about optics. Mounting a Micro Red Dot Sight (MRDS) on your pistol slide has become easier than ever in this day and age. GGP is no stranger to this, as their existing GLOCK® slides all have optics cuts pre-milled and tapped for some of the most popular combat proven optic sights. The GGP-26 slide is no exception, as it comes with their hybrid optic cut right out of the box. This cut allows either a Leupold DeltaPoint Pro to be mounted directly, or a Trijicon RMR/SRO with the addition of a slim shim plate that ensures a snug fit to the slide. Two popular optic footprints, and all without the need for bulky adapter plates that would only raise the optic above the bore axis. The result is low-profile and rock solid, just what you should expect from a company like Grey Ghost Precision.

The GGP-26 comes with a g10 coverplate and a this shim plate that converts the Leupold DPP footprint to a Trijicon RMR/SRO footprint.

 

GGP also includes their custom cover plate made from G10 that attractively covers the optic mount when not in use. So put away those typewriters, all you irons-only folks.

 

As for availability, GGP-26 slides are available now on GGP’s website for $429.99 MSRP. Considering GGP also manufactures match-grade barrels for the other GLOCK® slide offerings, it’s safe to say that GGP-26 barrels are on their way.
