Nomad Defense Profile Information

  • You asked for it, we listened.

    We’re still working on it, this is just a prototype.

    We already added an internal magwell flare on our Nomad 9 Frame…

    But you reloading maniacs still wanted more.

    Because we wanted the Nomad 9 to work well for concealed carry, we didn’t want to flare the outside of the grip at all since we knew that could lead to printing…

    …so we added the largest possible internal magwell flare that wouldn’t affect the outside of the gun but now it’s time to take that further.

    This is a prototype external magwell flare we’ve been working on since our Nomad 9 Frame isn’t compatible with flares that are already on the market.

    Let us know what you think because it’s all adjustable at this point.  Also let us know what color’s you guys would want?

    We CAD’ed this up and 3D printed it on our metal 3D printing/ CNC milling hybrid machine.

    Think of a 3D printer that builds up layers of sintered metal, stops every so many layers, and a CNC milling head comes in and finishes what was just printed.

    We have one of just a handful of these machines in the country and it’s going to allow us to develop new products as quickly as possible.

    Developing products like this is a very iterative process.  Draw it up on CAD, make a prototype, test it and get feedback, make adjustments, and eventually you’ll have what you set out for.

  • We love seeing posts from you guys showing off your sweet builds!

    This one comes from @sal_gunz

    Definitely one of the sweetest looking builds we’ve seen with that @lantac_usa Razorback slide on our Nomad 9 Frame.

    #builtwithnomad

    We developed our Nomad 9 Frame to be the answer for your next Gen4 Glock 19 compatible build.

    We took a hard look at the custom market and made note of all the custom features people are asking for.

    With that in mind, we developed our own grip texture that gives you a really solid grip and also has a clean look.

    We added an interchangeable backstrap with 3 sizes so you can get your Nomad 9 fitting perfectly to your hand.

    We added an extended beaver tail,

    internal magwell flare,

    redrew the grip contour to allow for a higher grip,

    enlarged the trigger guard while also moving it higher to eliminate the need to undercut,

    And added forward thumb ledges to allow you to control recoil with your off hand thumb.

    Oh and no more finger grooves!

    We’ve gotten very positive feedback from anyone who’s ever gotten one in their hands.

    They can’t believe it’s built off of the same Glock compatible platform, just feels way different.

  • @tacticaltoolbox review of the Nomad 9 Frame is live on YouTube!
    • 
    Link in bio.
    • 
    Of course we were a little nervous despite having every confidence in what we’ve created, Jonathan always does honest reviews and if there’s something not quite right he’s not afraid to say so – exactly as he should.

    You’ll have to watch the full review, I’m not going to spoil it here; but I will say were extremely happy about what he had to say.
    • 
    We’ve had our heads down, busy fulfilling orders and building relationships with people all across the country.
    • 
    It’s been really cool to see our frame get out there and be in the hands of so many of you and it’s been so awesome to get all the positive feedback.
    • 
    We really appreciate all your messages letting us know how much you’re enjoying the frame, it’s what keeps us going  and it makes all the hard work worth it.
    • 
    If you’ve got a build going make sure to send us photos or better yet post it up on Instagram with the hashtag #builtwithnomad so we can see it along with all the others out there building up there frames.

    The Nomad 9 Frame is available on @rainierarms right now.

    The @marineraiderfoundation was founded to provide support to active duty and medically retired Marine Raiders and their families, as well as to the families of Raiders who have lost their lives in service to our nation.

    The Foundation aims to meet needs unmet by the government with an emphasis on building personal and family resiliency and supporting the full reintegration of wounded, ill, injured, and transitioning raiders, their families and MARSOC’s Gold Star Families.

    We civilians here at Nomad Defense are humbled and inspired by the incredible men of the Marine Raiders.

    It is our honor to do anything we can to help out the Marine Raider Foundation in carrying out their mission.

    This custom Nomad 9 build will be auctioned off for the cause at their Evening with the Marine Raider Foundation event this coming Friday.

    Some lucky soul is going home with one of the smoothest Nomad 9 build’s we’ve put together to date.

    For this build we went with the @zevtech Dragonfly Slide, @cmctriggers Match Precision Barrel, all riding atop our Nomad 9 Frame.

    ZEV precision machines these Dragonfly slides from 17-4 billet stainless steel with tighter tolerances to increase accuracy and performance. The cuts allow for faster cycling and improved cooling of the barrel.

    With their Match Precision Barrel, CMC enhanced slide fit and lockup for improved accuracy. Straight flutes provide faster cooling. Bronze TiCN coating for smoother cycling.

    @pelican case and OEM Glock 15-rd magazines round out the package.

    This is just the start of our journey here as a new company and as we grow we’re committed to doing whatever we can to support what we believe in.

    Thank you to all the Marine Raiders out there for answering the call and thank you to the Marine Raider Foundation for the important work you do.

    Little bit of a throwback to when @davemodzcustoms gave our Nomad9 Frame his Heavenly Petals treatment.

    If you’re looking to take things to the next level, you should check out Dave Modz – it will amaze you what this man can do with polymer.

    Coming into the firearms market as a new player, one of our goals is to be THE frame of choice for all the aftermarket parts and custom gun builders.

    We want to do things a little differently than the big guys: actually work with these guys and give them the support they need to do what they do best.

    Whether you’re a gun store, aftermarket slide manufacture, stipple artist, cerakote master, etc. we aim to give you the best possible starting point.

    Our Nomad9 Frame comes finished, serialized, and ready to drop in components.

    That means you don’t have to setup a manufacturing and QC process to complete 80% frames.

    And instead of always having to look over your shoulder, worrying about the big guys coming after you: when you build with Nomad Defense you get our support in what you’re doing.

    So whether you’re a #gunfreaks planning out your next custom build, a gun store owner who wants to sell a complete custom gun at your shop, an aftermarket parts manufacture looking to sell complete guns, or a custom gun builder who’s going to take our frame and turn it into your art - #BuiltWithNomad

    And as these get out there make sure to post photos of your builds with that hashtag so we can check out what YOU are doing and repost you to this page.

  • Man this @statementdefense slide looks good riding on our Nomad9 Frame!

    The Nomad9 Frame is a finished a serialized lower receiver compatible with Glock 19 Gen4.

    The Nomad9 is designed to fix a lot of the things we didn’t like about Glocks.

    In certain conditions, the grip texture on factory Glocks just don’t provide enough traction - so we developed our own texture that provides maximum grip but doesn’t tear your hands apart.

    We found the trigger guard on standard Glocks make it difficult to shoot with gloves - so we enlarged it while also moving it higher up to eliminate the common need for undercuts.

    For some with small or large hands, the factory Glock grip just doesn’t fit right so in some cases they’re forced to modify their grip - we added an interchangeable backstrap to let you adjust the Nomad9 to your hands.

    Oh and no more finger grooves.

    We also saw a feature on certain race guns that allowed you to apply pressure with your off-hand thumb to control recoil - so we added a forward thumb ledge to our frame.

    Slide bite is a common issue for lots of people out there with larger hands - so we added an extended beaver tail.

    An internally integrated magwell flare makes reloads that much easier.

    The Nomad9 Frame was designed from the ground up to allow for the highest possible grip, you’ll notice this immediately when shooting it.

    Everything just feels right.
