The DV8 Advantage!

Utilizing a new precision manufacturing process we developed in-house here at DV8 Dynamics, Inc. we are proud to present our new line of slides for 1911 pistols! 

No Shortcuts!  We DO NOT use cheap castings or buy pre-made blanks from overseas! Each slide begins life from a solid bar of 17-4 Stainless steel.  17-4 is arguably the most premium steel available for manufacturing slides.

Precision Machined.  We use state-of-the-art industrial CNC machining centers to precisely carve out your slide out off bars of billet stainless steel.

Tough. Rigid. Each slide is heat-treat hardened via our digital commercial kilns to a hardness up to 43 RC; (which is as hard as most barrels)!
