When first coming across the term, “Gucci Glock” you might think this was a gun engraved with the famous fashion house’s GG logo all across the metal. That’s not the case. According to the Urban Dictionary, a Gucci Glock is “a Glock pistol that has been highly modified with non-factory original parts and gadgets such as an extended barrel, red dot sight, flashlight, mag well, slide, or extended magazine.” Or in more simple terms, it’s a “pimped-out pistol.”
The bad news is that if you are buying one of these custom tricked-out guns, it may not even work properly anymore. So it’s buyers beware big-time on this front in order to get a Gucci Glock. You can probably find ones that have been engraved with the GG Gucci fashion house’s logo if you really want one. They are pointless, but kind of fun if you like everything designer blinged-out.
The Gucci Glock Phase Began in 2014
The term “Gucci Glock” has been in practice since 2014. It could include extra goodies like colored guid rods, titanium firing pins, over stippled grips, and aftermarket triggers. All of these fun features don’t do anything for the gun in the way of making it work better, it’s all with the goal of making it look cooler or more unique.
Gun shop owners have seen a ton of these guns getting sold in resale shops, but the horror stories surrounding how often they misfire is pretty scary. The fact is that many aftermarket parts aren’t reliable and don’t work very well. Just look up Gucci Glock malfunctions on YouTube to see tons of videos about potential problems and how to fix them.
People Love to Customize Everything
It’s just a fact that customization is king. People love to have stuff that no one else has, and sometimes the only way to get that is through aftermarket customization. Think of how many ways you can customize a sports car. Rims and paint jobs are just the beginning. You can trick it out with all kinds of flashy accessories. Gucci Glocks are the same way.
A regular Glock 19 Gen 3 9mm pistol retails for around $500 bucks brand new. You can add on a stripped Hellfire Slide from Faxon Firearms for $400 in what the company calls the “perfect upgrade.” That almost doubles the price of the gun. Unfortunately, they are out of stock at the moment probably because so many people wanted to create their own Gucci Glock.
Showing Off On Social Media
Most people trick out their guns to show off on social media. So you may feel like you are missing out on something by not having the flashiest piece among your friends. It’s up to you on how much extra money you want to spend making aesthetic enhancements on your Glock, but overall it’s more important to make sure you have a well-functioning weapon that will work in a self-defense situation.
