Snakeskin cut slide
 
Does anybody know of a gunsmith that specializes in slide cuts? I saw a scaled cut slide on Springfield operator that would look cool on my glock 17

I know of two. They will only deal in metal slides though

Springfield does, Dlocks don't and that's what the OP wants it done to

Glock does have a metal slide, but a polymer frame.

Let me rephrase that-they only work on STEEL not aluminum that's 1/16 thick

I'm sure that an engraver could do it.

Wut da hell? 1/16" is like the thickness of a soup can. The GLOCK does not have a 1/16" thick slide, and the slide isn't made of aluminum. It's steel.

What the hell you doin takin up for Dlocks???? The slides on the damn things aren't much thicker than 1/16". Ya they might be steel but its really low grade steel trip

There's a huge difference between taking up for them, and telling the truth. The slide walls actually look a touch thicker than a 1911 (by the MKI Eyeball visual sensory device) and their steel is actually pretty decent quality, the same grade that many 1911's are made of.
