The Roland Special | The Best Duty Glock Ever?

Glock 19 Roland Special
The Roland Special takes the Glock 19 to another level giving the user race gun performance with duty level reliability.

The Roland Special is a concept of pistol that has become popular in some small circles of professional users (primarily among members of Primary & Secondary) that has been lovingly dubbed the Roland Special after the pseudonym that the creator of the concept used online. It isn't anything special, just a highly modified Glock 19 that uses a very specific collection of proven parts that helps the Glock perform much like a race gun while maintaining duty gun reliability.

The man behind the Roland Special spent 26 years as a US Army Special Ops vet as well as a verified founding member of the Asymmetric Warfare Group. While his real identity has surfaced recently, I am not going to out him and it would be appreciated to not do so in the comments.

EDIT: Since Chuck Pressburg has been far more public as of late, I will be publishing an interview with the Roland Special creator at some point.
