With the Nomad 9F pistol frame, focus was on incremental, but important improvements over the proven Nomad 9 pistol platform. Grip contours have been softened. Forward thumb ledges have been recontoured, and extended rearward to accommodate a wider range of hand shapes and sizes. Other subtle improvements include a slight reshape of the trigger guard to enhance compatibility with a wider range of aftermarket trigger shoes, and a more vertical “small” backstrap.

The Nomad 9F pistol frame was designed around the Glock Gen5 pistol platform as a means of enhancing the experience of the left-handed shooter. Another perk of Gen5 compatibility is that the Nomad 9F frame is compatible with the current Nomad Defense Gen4 G19 locking block.

The Nomad 9F Frame is sold as a stripped frame and is compatible with Glock 17 Gen5 components. Nomad 9 frame ships with two interchangeable backstraps, a trigger housing retention pin, and a backstrap retention pin.

Important information regarding slide and barrel compatibility: Gen4 G17 slides work well with the Nomad 9F frame. However, due to the locking block design of the Gen5 G17, it is critical that a Gen5 G17 barrel and Gen5 G17 recoil spring be installed in the slide, regardless of which slide generation you choose to run. Please see the Nomad 9F reference chart for additional generational parts compatibility.
