Shadow Systems – Gen3 G17 LFT Hybrid Grip Slide

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Shadow Systems showed me this slide during the NRA Show and I have been waiting for it come out.

The LFT Hybrid Grip Slide was designed with Lead Faucet Tactical’s Dan Brokos. Brokos is a retired Army Special Forces Sergeant Major. Before founding Lead Faucet Tactical, Brokos served as the NCOIC of Ft Bragg’s Range 37, Home of the Army SF CQB and Sniper school.

Designed for use with the Gen 3 G17, the Hybrid Slide is cut for an RMR Optic. It also incorporates a front gripping surface with both directional serrations as well as an insert of die cut grip tape.

According to Shadow Systems, Brokos discovered that each surface has benefits in different conditions and with or without gloves.  Combining the two means positive control all the times that is not uncomfortable or “too sharp.”  Racking the slide also feels significantly easier for those with a weaker grip who have trouble overcoming the recoil spring.

• Excellent performance in muddy, wet conditions, and extreme cold
• Best-in-class grip surface when operating in gloves
• Commercial adhesive backed grip tape stays where you put it
• Cut for Trijicon RMR

LFT Hybrid Slide Includes:
• Stripped 17-4 Stainless Steel Slide
• DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) finish
• Rough grit gray, medium grit gray, medium grit pink grip tape inserts
• Slide is completely stripped and does not include Channel Liner

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Lead Faucet Tactical Founder Dan Brokos has teamed up with Armageddon Gear to release three new nylon products. As with all things by Armageddon Gear, the LFT items are Made in the USA!

Brokos Belt


Dan originated the Brokos Belt and they’ve been made by a few companies over the years. But in this case, he has modernized the design for this new version from Armageddon Gear.


It’s only 3” wide and incorporates laser cut PALS compatible slots. Designed to work as either a standalone piece using the Tweave-covered padded liner belt (included) or in conjunction with the Velcro loop-faced inner belt, the Armageddon Gear Brokos Belt is lined with hook Velcro for stability. The polymer-reinforced outer belt is covered in a laser-cut Cordura laminate material that is segmented for use with belt-mounted holsters and other gear.


Package Contains:
LFT Armageddon Gear Brokos Outer Belt
LFT Armageddon Gear Brokos Inner Belt
LFT Armageddon Gear Brokos Padded Liner Belt

A pistol belt (sold separately) is required to complete your belt rig.


Available in Black and MultiCam, sizes Med-2XLarge.

Dump Pouch

The Dump Pouch is a great compliment to the Brokos Belt. Constructed of Mesh, it features a top opening reinforced with rigid scuba webbing liner to ensure the mouth of the pouch stays open.


PALS compatible, it can be rolled closed when not needed. Available in Coyote.


Lightweight Carbine Sling


Last, but not least is a new sling. This 2-Point Sling is easily adjustable and ultralightweight, made from Hypalon, Nylon and Tweave. In fact, Armageddon Gear says the material is so light and pliable the rolled-up sling almost fits in a damn can of Copenhagen. Available in MultiCam.

At the Troy Industries booth, the full line of accessories they developed with Dan Brokos of Lead Faucet Tactical were on display.


The LFT Brokos Brace is constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum. At 2″ long, the Brokos Brace is deliberately sized a bit larger than many stubby handstops, so there’s plenty of purchase to secure the brace against barriers and other platforms. M-LOK compatible.


The LFT 360 Sling Mount is designed to mount directly to M-LOK slots, rather than attach to a QD slot. It to provides 360 degrees of rotation with a mounted sling, for snag free use in a variety of shooting and carrying positions.


The LFT Flashlight Mount was is constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum. It was designed to mount extremely close to the rail for better weapon control. The mount can also be reversed so the light can be used in tandem with a laser. The LFT Flashlight Mount comes in two sizes: small for mounting a SureFire E-Series light, and Large for most lights with a 1″ diameter.
