TangoDown – Vickers Tactical Slide Stop for Gen5 Glocks

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

TangoDown™ Inc. is pleased to announce the latest addition to the lineup – the Vickers Tactical™ Slide Stop for Gen5 Glock™ models (VTSS-003).  When the Gen5 Glock™ models were released one of the most noticeable areas for improvement was the ambidextrous slide stop.  The VTSS-003 offers a design which allows for positive slide lock and release even in the most unfavorable conditions.  The deep serrations offer easier manipulation even while wearing gloves.

TangoDown Announces New Vickers Tactical Carry Trigger for GLOCK

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

TangoDown™ Inc. is excited to introduce the new addition to the Vickers Tactical™ product lineup! Join us in welcoming the Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger (VTCT). There are two (2) different models which accommodate the large variety of Glock™ models on the market (see below).

The VTCT is a flat faced polymer trigger.  The flat faced trigger has become quite popular among shooters and offers the perception of a lighter trigger press.  When developing the VTCT, the mechanical take-up was not modified.  However, over-travel was shortened to offer a quicker reset, which allows for a quicker follow up shot.


The VTCT is made from the same material as the OEM trigger, so there isn’t the risk of wear/damage to the frame.  The trigger is an insulator, not a heat conductor and will not get hot while spending the day on the range.


From Larry Vickers – “After using a pre-production prototype version of the new Tangodown™/Vickers Tactical™ Glock trigger on my training pistol for a period of time, I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. In fact, of the multiple students I’ve had try the trigger I’ve yet to receive a negative comment. The Tangodown crew hit this one out of the park and it is, in my opinion, truly the Glock™ trigger ‘Perfected’.”


The VTCT is easily installed in minutes by a Certified Glock™ Armorer.

The VTCT-001 fits all Gen3/Gen4 Glock™ models 9mm (including the G43), .40, .45ACP, 10mm.  Also accommodates the G42 .380 model.

The VTCT-002 fits all Gen5 Glock™ models currently on the market.

Includes the following: (1) Trigger Shoe & (1) Trigger Bar Connector Pin

Color Availability:  Black

MSRP:  $37.95

Lipsey’s and Vickers Tactical Launch Full Flat Dark Earth GLOCK Collaboration

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Baton Rouge, La.—Lipsey’s, a nationally renowned firearms distributor, and industry icon Larry Vickers, continue to up the ante on the popular “Vickers GLOCK” series.


Shipping immediately as a Lipsey’s Exclusive, this new Full FDE GLOCK series is built on the Vickers preferred RTF2 frame. The initial production run will be limited to 2,000 G17’s and 3,000 G19’s.


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.


Now the fourth GLOCK in the Lipsey’s/Vickers Tactical offering, there are no signs of slowing down as Lipsey’s Vice President and Product Development Manager, Jason Cloessner, eludes. “The Vickers GLOCK project is one of our most popular and requested exclusives. 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.”

Located in Baton Rouge, Lipsey’s was originally formed as a wholesale hunting and fishing distributor in 1953. Today, the company leads the firearms industry in the collaboration and distribution of exclusive firearms. An authority in NFA regulations, Lipsey’s also offers a robust line of silencers, short barrel rifles and accessories. With a committed focus on relationships, Lipsey’s provides value and innovation to federally licensed dealers and the industry’s top manufacturers.

Gunfighter Moment – Larry Vickers

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

Based on what I am seeing in my classes the 9mm vs .45 ACP debate is over and 9mm won. 40 S&W is history – ask any gunshop and they will tell you they can’t hardly give pistols away in this caliber. Quality 9mm pistols are plentiful, they hold a lot of bullets, are relatively easy to shoot, self defense loadings are very effective and practice ammo is plentiful and relatively inexpensive. Tell me the downside to this?
