The MX19 Aluminum-Frame Pistol from Matrix Arms — SHOT Show 2023

From the Matrix Arms’ website:

Reliability meets accuracy in the new Matrix Arms MX19 aluminum frame handgun. Compatible with Glock 19 Gen 3 slides, parts and mags the MX19 frame features a 1911 grip angle and is entirely manufactured in “Live Free or Die” New Hampshire, USA at the Matrix Arms headquarters.

The MX19’s all-metal chassis allows for much less flex and distortion during shooting than polymer frames. This allows for the most precise tolerances possible to be held without binding up during the recoil cycle.

While a metal frames-less distortion allows for the most accurate shooting handguns, in the past it has resulted in a more harsh recoil, compensated for by for most competitors with sheer weight and size. The patent pending MX19 recoil-reducing buffer paired with the more balanced weight ratio between the frame and slide turn what was once a top-heavy snappy recoil pattern of a polymer frame into a horizontal and reduced recoil pattern while keeping the lightweight for speed and carry convenience. Flat front and rear grip surfaces ensure no movement throughout your grip squeeze in even the most high-pressure scenarios.

    I take it the grip angle is a big deal so why can’t I see it?

      Yeah, too bad they couldn’t publish an article about a new pistol with a picture that didn’t cover up 60% of it.
