Precision and top-notch reliability—the Glock Store’s M12 Night Raptor upgrade for the G21 SF is the ultimate combination of tactical and competition enhancements. Shown with a GTL 22 light/laser.
A two-pin Sure Touch extended slide release lever was installed to significantly reduce the effort required to drop the pistol’s slide.
The rear TruGlo TFO (tritium fiber optic) sight features bright green dots and a long channel for faster targeting in all lighting conditions.
The M12 Night Raptor upgrade includes machining 12 heat-dissipating vents into the slide of the Glock. Compact models have eight vents.
The Glock Store builds each M12 Night Raptor to order. The base Glock is completely refinished and all components are hand-fitted and tested.
Glocks, as they come from the factory, are highly engineered, semi-automatic pistols that have evolved over the last three decades into what the Austrian armsmaker calls “Glock Perfection.” The hard-hitting, high-capacity G21 SF has a reputation for being one of the best .45 ACP semi-autos in the world. So how do you trump that?
There are a number of trigger upgrades and match-grade target barrels that can be installed. However, the strikingly distinctive Night Raptor—the top-of-the-line custom from the Glock Store—is more than a tune-up with a custom trigger and a match-grade barrel. It is a total rebuild that produces a Glock unlike any other. Every modification is done to achieve a single goal—perfecting Glock perfection.
For my test M12 Night Raptor, a series of customizations that can be done on any standard or compact Glock pistol, the Glock Store started with a G21 SF model. The G21 SF (short frame) offers a slightly smaller grip size than the G21 to accommodate a wider variety of hand sizes. In all other respects, a G21 and G21 SF are the same.
