High-Quality, Unmatched Accuracy
Carbon can exist in three allotropic forms.
Carbon, in a diamond crystal structure, is one of the hardest known materials.
Carbon, in a graphite crystal structure, is very soft and lubricous.
Carbon-based coatings, referred to as Diamond-like-Carbon (DLC) coatings, combine these two different properties of diamond and graphite, resulting in a self lubricating part with a low friction coefficient, high hardness and increased wear resistance.
One of the greatest things about Glock pistols is that available aftermarket parts are in abundance. Many of these parts have been strictly OEM, but MatchPoint USA aims to change this with their new precision machined, match-grade locking block for Glock Pistols. MatchPoint USA’s Glock Locking Block is machined to stricter tolerances than a metal injection molded (MIM) OEM part, ensuring a more predictable, and consistent lock-up. Standard Glock OEM Parts are metal injection molded. The metal injection molding process binds the material with glue, that when heated, melts together with the metal particles.
The Glock Locking Block from MatchPoint USA is machined from billet 17-4 stainless steel with a Rockwell Hardness rating of 44C, hard enough to last a lifetime of shooting round after round. Machining the part with these exact tolerances also maximizes the total amount of bearing surface possible with the barrel lug which helps aid in wear resistance in addition to providing a more secure lock-up. MatchPoint USA is the original designer and manufacturer of this fully CNC machined Locking Block.
This is why our quality and craftsmanship is second to none.
