Tucked away, Glock 19 Gen 5 Back plate holds the critical responsibility. It’s tasked with securing the striker assembly (firing pin) and the extractor plunger assembly. It might be small in size, but its role in the seamless operation is substantial. Glock is a brand known for their durability and quality.

But in the world of “better safe than sorry”, billet aluminum trumps plastic every time. Unsurprisingly NDZ Performance gets an honorable mention thanks to our pal, ZombieKiller54. We appreciate you, sir!

The Match-up: OEM Back Plate vs. NDZ Performance T6 6061 Aluminum Glock 19 Gen 5 Back Plate

OEM Back Plate vs NDZ Glock 19 Gen 5 Back Plate

It’s a face-off in the world of rear slide plates. In one corner, you have the Glock OEM plastic slide plate. In the other, the formidable NDZ Performance T6 6061 aluminum Glock 19 Gen 5 Back plate. The NDZ offering, with its high-grade aluminum construction, brings the power of durability and strength to the fight. Again, to reiterate, OEM is a decent start.

More Than Just Strength: The Anodizing Advantage

This increases its resistance to weathering and corrosion, making it a resilient companion for your Glock. But anodizing isn’t just about protection. It’s also a game changer for customization, offering these plates in over nine different colors.
