Thoughts on the Suarez International Glock Personal Defense Kit

| January 29, 2016 | 8 Comments

The Not Stock Glock has been officially christened the Personal Defense Weapon Kit for Glocks by Suarez International. The Kit consists of the ENDO Glock Stock adapter, a KAK Industry Shockwave pistol buffer tube, and a KAK Industry Shockwave Blade pistol brace.

A few things about the Kit:

  • All you need to test out the base concept
  • Recommended by SI to run as short as possible, with the pistol stabilizer as far forward as possible
  • The pistol buffer tube is secured with Loctite. This obviates the need for a castle nut or a base plate, and keeps the PDWK small
  • Available in black only
  • $99 before shipping

I think the main benefit to this package is convenience. I bought extra stuff from ENDO in order to get free shipping, and placed my order for the Shockwave parts directly from KAK Industry, which meant an additional shipping charge.

Ordering a complete kit also assuages any timing issues about constructive intent, if you are super worried about that kind of thing. When ordered separately, you could run into a situation where the ENDO adapter shows up first.

Cost wise, it’s a wash. Ordering the ENDO stock and Shockwave parts cost me $111.45 after shipping. Ordering from SI was $106 after shipping.

If you’re interested in trying this Glock pistol PDW concept, this seems the be the most convenient way to go about it.

You can also pick up some spare magazines like the new ETS extended mags, as well as upgrade parts like a new barrel, trigger, and other accessories.

    What does the OAL work out to? Using the picture I figure about 20″ which would be much shorter than a typical 10.5″ SBR or AR pistol.

    Shepherd,

    Are you going to do a speed/accuracy comparison between a Rmr Glock, Glock PDW and Ar Pistol at say 50 yards and under?

    The GLOCK PDW is. Great idea. It’s a 21st century rebirth of the Stocked Pistol. That puts it in a notch between the pistol and SMG. Yes it’s smaller than a 10″ AR but again it’s NOT the same. It may work in many of the same realms but pushing too far is a mistake. Yes it may be your perfect PDW but there may be times where you wished for more. It’s a great companion to a GLOCK on your belt

    Great post, Thank you!

    I am exploring various PDW ideas, and like the above concept – with a folding stock adapter. In comparing to the new Micro RONI, I’m wondering how one could mitigate the safety issue with a chambered round – while stored or concealed. The new Micro RONI has a trigger covering safety. Perhaps one could use a minimalist holster, like the Fricke Zaccheus?

    I would love to see a review on the Micro RONI, especially for repeatability of optic zero, after re-installation of the pistol. As easily as a pistol is reinstalled in the Micro RONI, how repeatable, could it be?

    Many of we non-NFA people, would be interested in the arm brace version of the Micro RONI.

    Thank you for being a great resource, for PDW type weapons!

    I posted this over on WT but they seem a bit gun snobbish. If you were to purpose build one, you could add a rmr, a charging handle and a saftey trigger. Here’s the link. https://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=1173&CAT=20
