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.”

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.

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.”

    Will There Be A Plum Lipsey’s/Vickers Glock?

    Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

    Larry Vickers recently posted this photo he found on the internet to demonstrate what might be in a future limited edition Lipsey’s/Vickers Tactical Glock.  


    He offered this explanation:

    Ok so one idea that kicked around for a future Lipseys -Vickers Glock is a plum frame; the idea behind this is ( as the story goes) when the Soviets first tried to make black polymer for the AK it came out funky and more plum. Since the Glock is the AK of pistols a nice dark plum frame would be cool on a future run. We are thinking to match the Magpul plum to make everyone happy; it’s not as dark plum as some of the Soviet stuff but is darker than other shades of plum in the AK market. This pic is a frame that has been painted to match but I include it for your consideration; the pic is not mine as I found it on the internet.

    This new Vickers Tactical Lipsey’s Exclusive GLOCK bolsters the tactical color triangle that also includes grey and flat dark earth with some added extras. Larry Vickers had this to say about this latest venture, “The most requested color for the Vickers GLOCKs from Lipsey’s is black by a wide margin. After careful consideration, we decided to mount a gold bead front sight with an otherwise black pistol. The combination is striking to say the least.”
