Vickers Tactical Slide Racker for G42 Available Now from TangoDown

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

After trying out the Glock 42, Larry Vickers realized that the cocking serrations were difficult to use due to the pistol’s small size. Specifically, the small slide, shallow finger purchase cuts and stout recoil spring assembly make for tough initial chambering, especially for women or anyone with less than optimal finger/hand strength.

  

LAV went to his “go-to” guys to help engineer a fix, and that’s how TangoDown got involved. The resulting GSR-01 is a top quality drop-in part that solves the issue cold. Injection molded of glass-reinforced nylon with stainless steel reinforcement just like the OEM part, it replaces the striker retention plate in minutes with no other modification to the sidearm. Once in place, the GSR-01 offers easy, effortless and positive slide cycling under any condition.

SHOT Show – Ops-Core

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

This is the new Lux Liner for the FAST Base Jump and Carbon. It’s a drop in replacement for the legacy liner and replicates what has already been transitioned into the Maritime andBallistic FAST helmets.

Meets ACH spec for impact, offering greater comfort and stability. Additionally, the removable pads don’t get hard in the cold!

The biggest question I get about Ops-Core is when the RAC headset is coming. How’s this for you? 2nd Quarter, 2015. It works and ready to go.

First off, it’s now just called RAC and no longer RACS. It’s still your best bet for true 3D hearing relying on binaural audio. Additionally, you can change the noise-canceling boom mic from side to side. Finally, the gimbal attachments allow for custom ear seal on almost every head shape. Below, you can show it in stored mode.

Finally, Ops-Core showed me a new low profile mount by TangoDown for the SureFire helmet light. It holds the light much closer to the rail than other versions.

TangoDown iOCover

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

The iOCover is now part of weapon accessory manufacturer TangoDown.

iOCover hit the scene a few months ago via a Kickstarter campaign. Billed as a “One-Handed, Built-in Lens Caps for Micro Optics” the iOCover is designed specifically to fit the Aimpoint T-1.

They made their Kickstarter goal and we threw some funding in the pot in order to secure a prototype. It was a win-win for us. We helped out a young entrepreneur and received a sample to try out. It’s been on a couple of rifles here at SSD and works great. The only issue was color matching during the prototyping phase but they’ve long since worked that out.

As you can see, it armors the optic, is easily removed and replaced to provide camouflage to the factory Black finish and incorporates lens covers that can be snapped inside one another during operation.

We’re pleased to see TangoDown working with iOCover on this project and look forward to purchasing more for the rest of our T-1s.

Grey Group Training Gives Us the Lowdown on a TangoDown Rail Mounted Front Sight Prototype

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

20121128-125514.jpg

Grey Group Training got the scoop on a new rail mounted front sight from TangoDown that is designed to accommodate top mounted lights such as the Inforce model seen in these photos. It will also accommodate the SureFire 300.

20121128-133846.jpg

I run a top mounted X300 on one of my carbines but it has to sit in front of the fixed front sight on a Daniel Defense rail. I like having the light there with the high thumb grip but this would be better than my current setup as it would move the front sight even further out and increase the sight radius.
