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.
Roland Special Parts
The Roland Special is a collection of vetted parts that have been proven to work, not a style of build. I am only going to cover the parts that are vetted but will give you some options if you want to build a variation based on the concept.
