The Dark Horse
This package also comes with free admission to one of Dark Horse Tactical training classes. A custom firearm of the highest quality, and cutting edge tactical training, the Dark Horse is unmatched in both value and ruggedness.
Our frames incorporate several unique features, all designed to make your Glock more functional and user friendly. 1911 enthusiasts will appreciate many of these features as we have “borrowed” heavily from some of the more traditional frame designs. The end result is a sure grip that provides several distinct advantages…
Frontstrap- As everyone’s hand is different, and we have yet to see an individual whose hand interfaces correctly with the finger grooves on the stock frontstrap. In fact, original Glocks did not feature these ‘cosmetic’ bumps, which were actually added as an afterthought. With a straight vertical front strap reminiscent of John Browning’s designs, we achieve strength through unified high fingers. Better fit, better control, better results.
Backstrap- Rounds striking the target high are the result of two combined factors… first, the shooter is pressing the trigger using the entirety of the dominant hand… second, the backstrap often contains a pseudo-ergonomic whale hump at the bottom which actually exacerbates this problem.
Trigger Undercut- If you’ve run the Glock combatively, you are aware of the stock geometry where the bottom of the trigger guard meets the frontstrap. This has been radiused and deburred to prevent the raw middle finger (AKA “Glock Finger”) notorious to Glock shooter’s and get the operator’s hand higher on the weapon. By increasing this round cut under the trigger guard, shooters are able to get longitudinally closer to the trigger axis. This allows for a more ergonomic trigger press, facilitating accuracy and independent movement of the trigger finger.
Magwell Crescent- Some malfunctions (i.e. double feed) require that the magazine be stripped from the magwell. This cut facilitates this process by providing more access to the mag baseplate, giving the operator more leverage for remedial action.
Arrowhead Groove- Many shooters have a problem easily activating the mag release; as a result, they frequently will add an extended release button. Instead of raising the bridge, we’ve lowered the river. The Arrowhead Cut provides a lowered section around the mag release that funnels your thumb directly into the button. Unlike using an extended release, it has the added benefit of not changing the dimensions of the grip profile, which can be problematic for left-handed/support/ambidextrous operations. (ONLY applied to GEN 1-3 Glocks)
Grip Stippling- The unique ValTek stipple pattern provides traction in all the right places. Stability and weapon retention are improved as a result. The DHT logo is also embedded in the grip.
Our slides are designed to be tough. They incorporate features that facilitate critical manipulations. They are completed with an application of Cerakote in our proprietary Battlefield Bronze
Racking Serrations- We are often amazed with how seldom the support hand actually engages the slide serrations. Add gloves, darkness, weapon mounted lights, or return fire and the consequences of a suspect grip can be disastrous. With left, right and top slide serrations running the entire length from muzzle to back plate, you will never miss a manipulation again. The slide is then finished with an application of Cerakote in your chosen color.
Press-Check Ramps- Similar in concept to the racking serrations, these grooves are designed to facilitate manipulations… specifically press-checks. They provide a ledge that gives your support hand leverage and a positive tactile response for sure placement.
V-Mags- This all-inclusive package also comes with customization of 3 magazines. Stock baseplates of virtually all magazines leave much to be desired, oftentimes being slick and featureless. The Dark Horse comes mission-ready with three of our customized magazines featuring both texturized baseplates for better purchase under stress and in adverse environments, as well as “Lateral Status Slots” that truly allow for load monitoring in light as well as nocturnal environments.
