N23 Special Order Overview:
Craft your slide to meet your tactical needs! Our Special Order process allows you to configure the slide model, optic cut, and coating finish to complete your perfect firearm!

All our slides are machined from 17-4 Precipitation Hardened Stainless Steel solid billet right here in Las Vegas, NV. Get yours started today!
Pro Tip: Special orders that match a stock configuration will be fulfilled first before placing stock online. This is the best way to get a stock slide reserved instead of waiting for a stock refresh that may not come.
This is where you choose the design that best meets your needs. We offer a wide range of models that blend functional features into attractive, precision machined designs. For additional information on each model click here to see their respective web pages. (N19 slide catalogue used for reference, the designs are the same)
We machine the optic cut directly onto the slide without the need of an adapter plate. Please consider this choice carefully as this decision is not reversible once the slide has been milled to that specification. Using different optics on footprints than the ones specified below is at your own risk.
The following is applicable for all mounting footprints unless stated otherwise:
- All mounting footprints are placed in front of the rear dovetail
- Optic cut depths have been engineered to provide a lower 1/3rd co-witness with suppressor height sights
- All mounting footprints do not require an adapter plate or sealing plate to mount the optic. Sealing plates or shrouds are still recommended for use by the optic manufacturer for intended applications.
None: No optic cut will be milled onto the slide. Sight mounting features will still be in the factory location.
Holosun 407C/507C/508T: Slide will ship ready to mount those optics directly. Please use the proprietary screws that Holosun provides with the optic. This footprint is our default option for stocked slides so be sure to check our online store inventory before placing a special order with this option to avoid an unnecessary lead time.
Holosun 407K/507K/RMSc Shield/Romeo Zero: Slide will ship ready to mount those optics directly. For the K series optics, you may have to shorten the right-side optic mount screw as they are too long and will run into the extractor depressor rod.
Holosun 509T: Slide will ship with the specific rail feature to mount the 509T directly with recoil stop slot. This footprint is not compatible with the Aimpoint Acro footprint; the Acro rail is much thinner.
Leupold Deltapoint Pro: Slide will ship ready to install the Deltapoint Pro directly. This option includes the 4 corner locating posts and is not compatible with the Romeo 1 Pro. Unique to this cut is the removal of the rear dovetail to allow space for the Deltapoint Pro’s rear sight attachment. Suppressor height sights are not tall enough to co-witness with this optic. We’ve had success co-witnessing with the Ameriglo .407” front (Part number GST 407) and the Deltapoint Pro Rear sight. Please use the screws from the Deltapoint Pro box to mount this optic to the slide.
Trijicon RMR: Slide will ship ready to mount the Trijicon RMR or SRO. This footprint is identical to the Holosun 507C footprint but we include special mounting screws for use with the Trijicon optics. This footprint is our default option for stocked slides so be sure to check our online store inventory before placing a special order with this option to avoid an unnecessary lead time.
Trijicon RMR Reverse Dovetail: Slide will ship ready to mount the Trijicon RMR but with the dovetail in front of the optic. Note that this option will shift the optic further back on the slide and SRO users will see their optic window run into the rear sight if installed. Ships with a pair of special height mounting screws.
Trijicon RMRcc: Slide will ship ready to mount the RMRcc. This footprint is unique and will only work with the Trijicon RMRcc. Screws are not included with this optic cut; the RMRcc comes with the correct mounting screws in the box.
Vortex Venom (Reverse Dovetail): Slide will ship ready to mount the Vortex Venom with the dovetail in front of the optic due to the larger optic size and curved front geometry. Please be advised that this optic cut will not support the Vortex Viper as we mill the mount perimeter to exact geometry of the Venom. Ships with a pair of special height mounting screws.
Vortex Viper: Slide will ship ready to mount the Vortex Viper. Please be advised that this optic cut will not support the Vortex Venom as we mill the mount perimeter to the exact geometry of the Viper. Ships with a pair of special height mounting screws.
We offer a variety of different options for finishing your slide after it has been milled.
Unfinished (Media Blasted): Select this option if you wish to get it coated from another vendor. We media blast the slide with a roughness to make it ready for coating. The slide will be shipped in an unfinished state not ready for operation. It is inadvisable to use the slide in this condition and may void your warranty if issues occur.
Black: Slide will arrive with a coated solid black finish.
Battle Hardened Black: Slide will arrive with a distressed black finish with highlighted edges. Scroll through the product pictures for more detail.
Satin Stainless Steel: Slide will arrive with a semi-polished, non-directional soft satin stainless steel finish. Low reflectivity and a clean, uniform look set this premium finish apart from others while maintaining cosmetic longevity.
Cerakote: All other colors not identified above are achieved through Cerakote. Slide will arrive with a single color Cerakote of your choice offering unmatched corrosion, chemical and durability performance.

The quality of work and attention to detail is the best I have experienced. Thank you Lee for such great customer support and for providing me with an excellent product.
Very satisfied and impressed with their product. Looks better in real life then it does in the picture.
Love the slide, high quality work. Will be headed to the range to break it in soon. Arrived quickly, and appreciate the email responses from Norsso regarding options.
The product is absolutely awesome it just has one flaw. The front iron sight hole is to big.
Another awesome looking quality slide.
The best slide I’ve ever owned. Great service. Norsso goes above and beyond in every aspect.
Exceptional fit and finish. installed on my lower like it was custom fitted. Clean smooth finish with no tooling marks or sharp edges. Impressive work!
Purchased 2 of these special order Glock 23 Piranha slide and both are exceptional. Crafstmanship, meticulous machining, prefect DLC finish and oustanding design are what sets this product aabove others. Thank you,
I received the G23 Reptile C slide with the holosun 507k x2 milling and battled hardened look. Right out of the box I was impressed with the slide. All the milled edges we're smooth no buring or thought faces. The battle hardened look was a nice feature that some slide manufacturers don't have. The one issue I did have was the Holosun 507k x2 factory screws to mount the optic were to long and impeded on the travel of the exstractor pin. I called Norsso and they helped me with a solution over the phone including the thread pattern in which the milled for the optic. From ordering to receiving and the customer service when I contacted Norsso I will be ordering another g23 slide in gen 3 very soon. 5 stars
Excellent slide fit, finish and manufacturer. My WC Vickers rear sight require some fitting. A little more than another aftermarket Glock slide I have. Just a small note on an excellent slide. I would recommend to anyone who is looking to the aftermarket for their Glock slide needs.
bought this gripper for daily carry and it is everything I expected and more. The pictures did not do justice. quality is just excellent, trying to make it better will damage it. A little pricey, yes but you get what you pay for. don't settle for anything less. Looks, quality and reliability!!!!!! just awesome!!!
