Vickers Tactical Slide Racker for G42 Available Now from TangoDown

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.

    Interesting. Similar concept to the TacRack, but that product doesn’t appear to be available for the G42 yet.

    These are the first of their kind that are injection molded and stainless steel reinforced, just like the OEM plate. The rest on the market are CNC machined from 6061 T6 aluminum.
