Lipsey’s and Vickers Tactical Launch Full Flat Dark Earth GLOCK Collaboration

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Baton Rouge, La.—Lipsey’s, a nationally renowned firearms distributor, and industry icon Larry Vickers, continue to up the ante on the popular “Vickers GLOCK” series.

IMG_1967

Shipping immediately as a Lipsey’s Exclusive, this new Full FDE GLOCK series is built on the Vickers preferred RTF2 frame. The initial production run will be limited to 2,000 G17’s and 3,000 G19’s.

IMG_1966

There are some familiar features that seat this Full FDE model at the Vickers GLOCK table while maintaining its own unique personality. Touting the new AmeriGlo Pro I-DOT tritium front sight and proven Wilson Combat U-Notch rear, Vickers stated this may be the best sight configuration that he’s ever shot. “I’ve run a lot of pistols set up every way imaginable but this yellow/green front sight picks up as fast as anything out there.”

IMG_1965

The reliable Vickers TangoDown add-ons include the extended mag release, extended slide catch and matching FDE magazine base plates. The grip plug with integral disassembly tool, new in FDE, is a perfect match. An allen wrench is also included for rear sight adjustment.

IMG_1968

Now the fourth GLOCK in the Lipsey’s/Vickers Tactical offering, there are no signs of slowing down as Lipsey’s Vice President and Product Development Manager, Jason Cloessner, eludes. “The Vickers GLOCK project is one of our most popular and requested exclusives. With the popularity of our Full FDE exclusive that’s been around for a few years, we saw a void that this Vickers gun fills perfectly. We had to have Larry’s stamp on it.”

Located in Baton Rouge, Lipsey’s was originally formed as a wholesale hunting and fishing distributor in 1953. Today, the company leads the firearms industry in the collaboration and distribution of exclusive firearms. An authority in NFA regulations, Lipsey’s also offers a robust line of silencers, short barrel rifles and accessories. With a committed focus on relationships, Lipsey’s provides value and innovation to federally licensed dealers and the industry’s top manufacturers.

Gunfighter Moment – Larry Vickers

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

Based on what I am seeing in my classes the 9mm vs .45 ACP debate is over and 9mm won. 40 S&W is history – ask any gunshop and they will tell you they can’t hardly give pistols away in this caliber. Quality 9mm pistols are plentiful, they hold a lot of bullets, are relatively easy to shoot, self defense loadings are very effective and practice ammo is plentiful and relatively inexpensive. Tell me the downside to this?
