TangoDown – Light Portal Front Sight

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

The new Light Portal Front Sight (FFA-02) from TangoDown is pretty awesome. It’s a combination weapon light mount and front sight; all in one compact package. The FFA-02 was developed to give shooters the ability to place a weapon light on the 12:00 rail without obstructing the front sight.  I’ve done this in the past using a SureFire X300 on a rifle which incorporates an FSP, but I haven’t tried it with an XC-1, yet.  Now, I’ll have to give it a shot.

This weapon light mount accommodates the SureFire XC-1 Pistol Light, creating a lightweight option if you’re looking to reduce the weight on your carbine. Maintaining a hand forward shooting position makes activating the XC-1 weapon light easy and quick. For use with low-profile gas block barrels only. Does not work with standard barrel-mounted M16/M4 fixed front sights.

Additional Info:
-Limited Availability
-Type III hard coat matte black anodized finish
-Adjustable front sight post
-Quick installation on any MIL-STD 1913 rail
-OA Height: 2″ Width: 2″ Weight: 1.5 oz
-Made in USA
-MSRP: $95.00


TangoDown / Vickers Tactical Glock – 43 Slide Racker

Friday, October 14th, 2016

TangoDown is pleased to announce the latest addition to the Vickers Tactical lineup! Announcing the GSR-02 Slide Racker for the popular single stack 9mm Glock™ 43.

Just like its predecessors, the GSR-02 has small serrated wings at the slide’s end. This feature allows for positive cycling against your belt, holster, or heel quickly when you’re restricted to a single hand. The GSR-02 is also an outstanding upgrade for those who struggle with arthritis, have smaller hands, or reduced hand strength. The GSR-02 is large enough to provide advantage, but still small enough to be unnoticed in concealed carry holsters.

-Tough, stainless steel & injection molded glass reinforced nylon construction
-Subtle, extended ‘Wing’ shape with serrations makes for easy slide cycling, even under stress
-Installs in minutes, without any weapon modifications

MSRP: $18.95

Visit www.TangoDown.com for more information on the GSR-02.

TangoDown – GSR-03 Slide Racker

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

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.

Visit TangoDown.com for more information on the GSR-03.
