If holster wear/durability is a concern then we highly recommend going with our Black Nitride as Cerakote is a wearable item.
Cerakote and Black Nitride are for the entire slide. (Black Nitride adds 2-3 weeks lead time)
For Cerakote color codes and examples: https://jagerwerks.com/cerakote/
It is implied that the customer will have arrangements for coating of a slide if NONE is selected for color. If NONE is chosen there is potentially an issue for rust and corrosion to develop on the slide. Jagerwerks is not responsible for misuse and neglect of bare metal.
Our Vortex Viper includes front and rear recoil posts and mounting screws. When the iron sight dovetail remains in the factory location there is a small hole created on the front of the optic cut. Due to the length of the optic we will mill into the safety plunger channel.
This will not affect the performance or safety of your slide.
Screws supplied are (2) #6-32 x 3/8". An IP10 wrench is included for install.
If your iron sights are not compatible with the optic/optic cut we will not reinstall them. They will be sent back in a plastic bag with your slide.
We do not charge extra for disassembly/reassembly, if you send your entire slide assembly we will laser align the sights for you.
For iron sights please refer to this page Glock Vortex Viper Iron Sights
The $20 upcharge on the 17L/41 is for a stainless steel plug that we install on the underside of the slide. This ensures proper thread engagement.
Due to optic cut depth, the Crimson Trace red dots do not fit on our Viper optic cut. The Crimson Trace has a viper footprint but the front and rear offset differs from the Vortex.
Vortex Viper optic cut
I was in the market to get my G19 slide cut for my Vortex Venom. Did my research and JagerWerks stood out because of their history of quality work, turn-time and pricing. I sent my slide and it was received on 11/30. It was cut, cerakoted and returned to me today on 12/7! Unreal! The optic fit perfectly. Overall work quality is awesome. Additionally, I received an email from Steven Hunt inquiring about a rear sight because I did not include one. I was unsure of what I needed and explained this to Steven. I asked his advice on the needed height and offered to purchase whatever he recommended. He not only made a recommendation but threw in a Dawson rear sight on the house. So, to say I'm thrilled would be understatement. JagerWerks will be recommended to all my friends in need of pistol work from now on. Thank you all very much!
Exceeded My Already High Expectations!
Wow! JagerWerks does fantastic work!. I mailed them my slide on August 25 with new tall Ameriglo sites and the Viper Vortex Red Dot. They did a beautiful job cutting my slide and installed my new sites and red dot. I got it back on or before September 25. Since they have been so slammed, I did not expect to get it back that soon. It's beautiful, and my red dot is perfectly sited. Thank you JagerWerks!
Vortex Viper Cut
Excellent fit and finish. I'm very pleased with their work
Vortex Viper Slide Cut
The cut turned out perfect as shown in the example. Fit and finish with the optic was spot on and the addition of the Carbon Kap when the optic is off, completed this picture. Awesome work and cheaper than I could have had done locally.
