Faxon Firearms, well-known for their AR-15 rifles, parts and accessories, is now offering complete semi-custom Glock-pattern pistols chambered in 9mm Luger. The company is launching with two models with their enhanced slides and barrels.
The two models are the Patriot and the Hellfire, which share names with the standalone slide assemblies. Both are built on custom Faxon-branded Polymer80 PF940C frames with stainless steel inserts and a 1911-like grip.
The Hellfire is Faxon’s flagship model with an extended, threaded barrel, enlarged magazine well and extended magazines. The Patriot is slightly more conservative with standard magazines, magwell and flush barrel. Both models are cut for select Trijicon and compatible mini red-dot sights and have raised sights to co-witness with optics.
The Patriot comes with fiber optic sights while the Hellfire comes with tritium night sights. The Patriot ships with a flush 15-round magazine while the Hellfire ships with an extended 20-round mag. Both come with a TSA-approved case which is a nice touch.
In addition to their truly unique looks these guns are built to run hard. The slide and barrel feature a slick black diamond-like coating finish and are machined out of 17-4 stainless steel. The slide has front and rear serrations for advanced slide manipulation techniques as well as serrations on top to cut glare.
The frames feature custom cut and polished slide rails and a double undercut trigger guards to reduce wear on the users. Rounding things out are extended magazine release buttons and trigger assemblies by Overwatch Precision.
The triggers are constructed using 7075-T6 aluminum and stainless steel, combining Glock OEM parts with improved aftermarket components to deliver an improved trigger feel without sacrificing reliability in any way. Overwatch uses an NP3 coating to finish.

Both the Patriot and the Hellfire are premium handguns with a lot of high-end components and the prices to match. The Patriot has a suggested price of $1,299 and the Hellfire runs $1,499. While that is a lot of money compared to a factory Glock pistol in the semi-custom world that’s very competitive compared to other companies such as Taran Tactical.
Faxon Firearms is starting strong with these two models that showcase their Patriot and Hellfire slide assemblies. Of course, Glock owners don’t need to buy a whole new gun to get the Faxon experience. The company also sells the slide assemblies separately starting around $698 and barrels starting at $139.
