SAI Glock Tier 3 Overview

The advanced technology and design of Glock pistols have made them one of the top choices for gun owners today. A Glock pistol right out of the box, however, has only begun to reach its full potential. Omaha Outdoors offers Glock pistols that have been custom-tuned by the gunsmiths at Salient Arms International (SAI). Their upgraded Glock pistols provide the extra comfort, reliability and accuracy required by the military, law enforcement and competitive shooters, now made available to all civilians.

Omaha Outdoors has in inventory Glock pistols that have undergone the SAI Tier 3 upgrade, an introductory package that offers a great value for the price. A stock Glock is improved in key areas:

Slide

  • All corners of the slide beveled to remove weight and soften the outline
  • A small 45° bevel along the bottom of the edges of the slide to limit sharpness
  • Vertical front cocking serrations
  • Guide rod with ISMI spring

Sights

  • Warren tactical fiber optic front sight
  • Black rear sights

Frame / Grip

  • Full wrap stippling around the grip
  • Stippled frame pads to provide thumb traction
  • Option to have stippling to only front and rear only, without sacrificing comfort when carrying concealed
  • Trigger guard is undercut at front strap and underneath trigger to allow for a higher grip on the pistol (reduces muzzle flip)
  • Comet cut around magazine release button
  • Flush grip frame plug
  • Trimmed nose of dust cover

*Stippling is a type of texturing, similar to checkering, applied to the polymer Glock grip and areas in contact with shooter’s hands. The improved texture aids in traction, and therefore control of the pistol during draw, aiming and recovery from recoil.

Trigger

  • Non-adjustable aluminum trigger
  • SAI frame pins
  • SAI trigger return springs
  • All engagement surfaces re-cut and polished
  • SAI safety plunger

Finish

  • Sides of slide polished to a brushed finish
  • Other slide surfaces bead-blasted to a satin matte finish
  • Entire slide given a DLC (diamond like carbon) coating, black in color

The Salient logo is laser engraved on the slide to show that the pistol has been customized by this leading gunsmithing group.

SAI Glock Tier 2 Overview

What’s better than a brand-new Glock pistol fresh out of the box? A Glock pistol from Omaha Outdoors that has been upgraded to the Salient Arms International (SAI) Tier 2 package level. The gunsmiths at SAI take a stock Glock pistol and re-work it, improving the handling, reliability and accuracy.

Slide

  • All Tier 3 cuts
  • Large relief cuts machined into the left and right sides of slide
  • Two “lined” relief cuts machined at the front and back of the ejection port to further reduce weight
  • Guide rod with ISMI spring

Sights

  • Warren tactical fiber optic front sight
  • Black rear sights

Frame / Grip

  • Same as Tier 3
  • Full titanium pin set

  • SAI billet trigger shoe/safety in curved or flat

Finish

SAI Glock Tier 1

The top of the line upgrade for a new Glock pistol, the Salient Arms International (SAI) Tier 1 package is available from Omaha Outdoors. Virtually no trouble or expense has been spared in crafting this special handgun to refine the Glock design to its full potential. The gunsmiths at SAI take a stock Glock pistol and re-work it, bringing the handling, reliability and accuracy characteristics of the Glock to competition shooting levels.

The SAI Tier 1 package includes improvements offered in the Tier 1 and Tier 2 packages, modified for extra features, plus extensive work to all aspects of the pistol. The detailed gunsmithing includes:

Slide

  • All Tier 2 cuts
  • Left and right side cuts are reduced in length for window cuts
  • Lined up relief cut on top of the slide in front of ejection port is eliminated
  • Angled front slide serrations
  • Angled side-of-slide parallelogram window cuts to match a rectangular top-of-slide window
  • Guide rod with ISMI spring

Sights

  • Warren tactical fiber optic front sight
  • Black rear sights

Frame / Grip

  • Same as Tier 2 and 3

Trigger

  • Non-adjustable aluminum trigger
  • Tuned and polished trigger bar
  • Tuned 4.5 lb connector
  • Tuned ejector housing
  • Full spring kit
  • Lightened striker and other proprietary modifications not available elsewhere
  • SAI billet trigger shoe/safety in curved or flat

Finish

  • Sides of slide polished to a brushed finish
  • Other slide surfaces bead-blasted to a satin matte finish
  • Entire slide given a DLC (diamond like carbon) coating, black in color
  • Gold TiN coated barrel

More Salient Options:

  • RMR Slide Cut ($350) – The slide can be cut to accept a Trijicon RMR (Ruggedized Miniature Reflex) red dot scope for an additional charge. Also includes tall suppressor night sights. A Trijicon RMR is not included with this upgrade.
  • Trijicon RMR ($600) – Select a Trijicon RMR06 or RMR07.
  • Threaded Barrel ($150) – If you plan on shooting your Glock with a suppressor, you will need a threaded barrel.
  • Fluted Barrel ($150) – Reduces the overall weight of the firearm and barrels become less accurate and heat builds up. Fluting is excellent for heat dissipation, especially when one is at the range training for extended periods of time.
  • Match Fit Barrel ($350) – Not sold separately. Each match fit barrel is matched up with the upper slide for the tightest fit possible.
  • Salient Magwell ($110) – Slim enough for every-day-carry or concealed-carry purposes. The beveled insertion-edges of the SAI Mag Guide extend less than 1/8 of an inch off of the weapon’s frame; still allowing use of OEM Glock magazine baseplates and still effectively allowing the OEM baseplate to be “ripped” during a major weapon malfunction.
  • Salient Basepad ($30) – Conducive to one-handed operation and don’t require modification to your current magazines. You will be able to easily hook the base pad on your belt, pant pockets, or your holster to pull the magazine free if you are experiencing a weapon malfunction.
