Special Order Option

G23 slides aren't as popular as the G19, but we still get requests for them from time to time. Instead of stocking one model, we'll offer you the choice to build the slide how you want it. As a safely net we put 6-8 weeks delivery as the lead time. For in depth information for each slide design visit their respective web pages. More pics are available as well.

Slide Blank Details

All slides are manufactured in house at Norsso and made with 17-4 Precipitation Hardened Stainless Steel.

Please read more about the advantages of 17-4 Stainless on our BLOG

Optic Milling Options

We offer optic milling options for several optics. Here are the details listed below of each.

Trijicon RMR - This is available with the dovetail in factory location or in front of the optic. Indexing posts are used to keep the optic zeroed if removed for battery change or to be used on another platform. We set our cowitness sight picture for lower 1/3. This gives more thread engagement to hold the optic onto the slide, and it allows you to see more of the optic window. Absolute cowitness can be achieved with taller sights if so desired.

Vortex Viper and Venom - Indexing posts are used for these optics to maintain sight zero if removed. The Venom optic is larger than the Viper. It requires the dovetail to be moved from the factory location to be in front. The Viper is installed in the conventional location or can be reversed depending on application. These optics are setup with lower 1/3 cowitness. 

Leupold Delta Point Pro - This milling option removes the rear dovetail. For cowitnessing with this setup you'll need the Delta Point Pro rear sight and the Ameriglo .407" front. Part number is GST 407.


You have the option to choose Black Nitride or our new distressed finish Battle Hardened. The Battle Hardened option highlights the features and cosmetic lines giving it instant character and depth.

norsso gripper for glock 23

Posted by j on Mar 22nd 2019

this is the first aftermarket slide i have purchased. the fit and finish is great and looks really good as well. i would definitely recommend to anyone who is wanting to preserve their oem slide and want a custom slide for optics, etc. without having to send your slide in and being out of a firearm during the time. i will purchase again for my other glocks!

G 23 Special Order Reptile OG

Posted by Joshua on Mar 6th 2019

This is a great looking slide. It was clean, well made, and looked amazing. Out of the box I ran into some failure to feed issues, however I contacted Norsso and they were very quick to respond and. help me troubleshoot. It turned out that my factory extractor was too tight to the breech and I needed to send the slide back in. Customer Service provided a next day air shipping label, fixed the problem and had it back to me by the next business day. Aside from the amazing looking slide and now that it functions flawlessly, I would highly recommend this product because of the the superior customer support provided. Having a company that will stand behind their product to me is just as important as the quality product itself; Norsso checked both of these boxes for me.
