This team up between Lipsey’s and Larry Vickers very exciting news. While his name has long been synonymous with the 1911, LAV has been shooting GLOCKs for years. In fact, he has developed several GLOCK after market parts that will be included in this Lispey’s build on the FDE frame. I’ve already placed my order through my local Lipsey’s dealer and can’t wait to get my hands on it.
LIPSEY’S AND VICKERS TACTICAL TEAM UP TO DELIVER GLOCK EXCLUSIVES
Baton Rouge, La. — Lipsey’s, a nationally renowned firearms distributor, and combat veteran Larry Vickers, the face of the tactical firearms industry have entered into partnership on two exclusive GLOCK pistol models.
Beginning today, Lipsey’s will have a limited run of Gen 3 RTF2 Frame GLOCK 17 and 19’s in flat dark earth. They come equipped with Vickers Tactical sights, mag release, slide catch and magazine base plates. These GLOCK models will also have unique serial numbers (0000LAV- 4999LAV) for collectability and authenticity. Larry Vickers chose close industry partners Wilson Combat to create the sights and Tango Down who manufactured all other parts. When asked about the joint venture Larry said, “I’m proud to be working with Lipsey’s on a pair of GLOCK pistols that not only feature my parts, but are offered in a configuration never before available in the market. Serious GLOCK fans take note, these guns are a must have.”
The FDE GLOCK has been a staple in the Lipsey’s Exclusives arsenal for several years. Lipsey’s Product Development Manager Jason Cloessner and Larry Vickers have been brewing this concept for some time. Cloessner was excited to finally unveil this project. “Larry and I have been working on this project for some time. Basically, I asked Larry to spec out a GLOCK exactly how he would want it without any compromises. The Vickers/Lipsey’s Exclusive GLOCK 17’s and 19’s are the results of this request.”
