TangoDown – GSR-03 Slide Racker

TangoDown has developed a Slide Racker to accommodate larger frame 9mm and .40 double stack Glock models.

The GSR-03 provides small serrated wings at the slide’s end, to guarantee a positive cycling of ammunition into the weapon. Even if you’re down to one hand, cycling the slide against your belt, holster or heel is quick and positive. Those with small hands or struggling with arthritis, will benefit from this upgrade. The GSR-03 is big enough to offer advantage, yet small enough to be unnoticeable in concealed carry holsters.

    I know why TD made these, consumer demand, and Jeffs stuff is the tits so this comment is in no way a knock on him or the product.

    I understand the concept behind this but it worries me that, especially on a concealed carry weapon, the protuberances would lead to possible snagging and pulling the slide out of battery. I may be way off on this but I would sure like to see someone knowledgeable run these through the paces and see if any issues arise. I hope not because I know there are folks out there for which this will be a great aid.

      I wouldn’t say it’s an impossibility, but I will speculate that it is highly unlikely. If it is a true concern for an individual, don’t buy. For many, I assume, the benefit outweighs the potential negative.

      The rear sight protrudes much further than these, How often does the sight cause any issues?

      • jbgleason says:

        Yes but you don’t normally have the top of the slide coming into contact with surfaces the way the sides of the pistol do…. Unless you are using that sideways shooting technique that is.

      • Jeff S says:

        Speaking of the rear sight… Why not just use that to rack the slide on ______?

        • BlackBeard says:

          This was my first reaction.. Why upgrade anything on a Glock before you upgrade the stock sights. Heinie ledge for the win!

          Yep. XS suppressor-height on my 17 works quite well.

    Seems like one could be made for M&Ps…….just saying

    What about the Glock 43?

    Reminds me of the similar tabs on the hk vp9

    Seems like it would be great for those who run an ALG Six Second Mount.

    I have been running these for a few weeks now on a 19. I really like the concept and it makes weapons manipulation easier. I also have a VP9, which proved this concept works and is why I didn’t hesitate to put it on my Glock. The GSR03 has not hung up, snagged, or had any other deleterious impact in CCW using a vanguard2, archangel, or using a battle belt mounted Raven phantom. I think that while it is not necessary like new steel sights, it is a functional enhancement. I ended up putting one on my 70 year old dad’s g17, and it helps him out a great deal. Takes about 30 seconds to install.

    I like the idea, and it has a smaller form factor than similar products I’ve seen. I like the advantage of more leverage. But my concern isn’t the snagging, I’m uneasy with using the slide plate at all. Where the original is out of the way and untouched, this if it were to fail/ fall off it would render the weapon inoperable.
