Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger for Glocks

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.

For further details, visit www.TangoDown.com to learn even more about the Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger.

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

The 870 Covert-12 is 27.5″ long with a 8.5″ barrel, and is the smallest and most portable 12 ga you will find. The dimensions make it far easier to keep with you than even a stock tac-14 weapon. And it is just as legal as any other firearm.

This weapon is built on Remington Model 870 Tac-14. This is a NON-NFA, Completely Compliant and Legal ‘Firearm’ (technically not a shotgun). Transfers as “Other” on 4473. All potential buyers and users should check their state and local laws for legality, as well as insure their recipient FFL has been educated on the non-NFA nature of this product.

Covert-12 Details:

  • Remington 870 Barrel 8.5″ – Optionally ported for recoil reduction.
  • Bolt and Action Bar components tuned, polished, and finsihed in NP3.
  • Trigger group tuned for a crisp break, new springs added.
  • Steel Extractor installed for increased reliability.
  • Folding metal foregrip
  • Suarez Safety installed to improve engagement from Safe to Fire positions.
  • Weapon has a 3+1 Capacity
  • NP3 Follower Follower.
  • Brass front bead – Fiber Optic front sight in Green is optional.
  • Cerakote rust resistant finish for lubricity and durability under all conditions.
  • Rigid Magazine Tube Sling Mount.
  • SB Tactical Fixed Brace is standard – Folding Brace is optional.
  • Available as complete weapons or built on your Tac-14.



Charles Daly Honcho

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that the Raptor Grip from Shockwave Technologies has created a very hot market for short, non-NFA shotguns. Until now, that market has been mostly limited to the big players in shotguns – Mossberg and Remington. Now there is a new player wading in at a budget price.

Charles Daly is set to release the Honcho in .410, 20GA, and 12GA. All three have 14″ barrels with black polymer furniture. The 12GA and 20GA models have a section of rail on the handguard for attaching a light. All three models have a fixed blade front sight.

Like several other Charles Daly shotguns, these appear to be manufactured in Turkey. Their MSRP (around $300) is lower than the retail price on most other similar shotguns which may be enough to tempt those who have otherwise ignored the birdshead grip shotgun craze thus far.

Attention to Detail: Forward Controls EMR in 17-4 PH Stainless Steel

If you are reading JTT, I like to think you and I have a lot in common. You probably enjoy seeing the otherwise unseen details that define a maker’s craftsmanship and thoughtfulness. This 17-4 PH Stainless Steel EMR-C from Forward Controls Design (FCD) is a great example of that.

AR-15 magazine release buttons are usually made from aluminum as are most of the EMR (Enhanced Magazine Release) variants that FCD produces. But what if you wanted to make one from stainless steel? Some manufacturers would be content to chuck some steel into the CNC and call it good. It would be just like every other magazine release… but marginally heavier.

FCD doesn’t work that way. They couldn’t call it good enough until they took as much weight out as they could. They added two little kidney shaped holes to the back of the button that bring the weight to “acceptable levels”. These holes are tiny, designed into the contours of a very small part, beautifully machined, and… COMPLETELY INVISIBLE WHEN THE EMR-C IS INSTALLED!

I love stuff like this. You likely wouldn’t notice the weight once it was installed. You’ll never see the lightening cuts after installation. That doesn’t matter. They still did it. It’s craftsmanship even when no one is looking.

Ruger American SACS – New from Indian Creek Design

July 9, 2018, Nampa Idaho.

Lot’s of folks love their Ruger American rifles, and they love them for all types of reasons. Most are infatuated with the intrinsic accuracy the platform demonstrates, others simply dig the “bang for the buck” that they’ve been treated to. Many bought them initially because they are inexpensive but after they shoot them a few times they realize they have found a tack driver hiding within the often slightly warped oem plastic stock. Some folks leave them almost completely stock, but others take advantage of the ever growing aftermarket to customize their RA’s, RAR’s, and RAP’s (Ruger American, Ruger American Ranch, and Ruger American Predator, respectively).

Many owners enjoy adding a different stock or going with a chassis set up, toying with various optics, and generally hot-rodding their budget rifles into some high performing but not budget busting rifles that they can be certain will hold their own in any endeavor. From mild to wild, RA owners are no strangers to seeking out what performs well.

One of the items frequently changed from the OEM part is the plastic bolt shroud. It gets replaced with an aftermarket offering typically made of aluminum or titanium. While there is nothing inherently “wrong” with the plastic shroud other than the material it is made from, the manufacturers of metal bolt shrouds have enjoyed brisk business with folks looking to get rid of the polymer. Now they have a value added reason to do so…

We at Indian Creek Design, being more concerned with function over form if there needs to be a decision made between the two, often wondered what the draw was as we’d never had any issues with our 6.5 Creedmoor RAP’s OEM bolt shroud. While not being enamored with the plastic part, it’s not a high function part, being simply there to cover the mechanical bits of the firing pin assembly. Then we had a crazy idea, and after some strenuous R/D testing, we are happy to debut our Ruger American SACS (Sportsman’s Anti Cant Shroud).

Yes, you read that right, a bolt shroud with an incorporated spirit level to indicate cant. We’ve heard it before, the “but wait, that can’t work!” crowd weighing in. The doubters were all over our BFD (Blast Forwarding Device) too, and if you have used one of those we know because can see your satisfied smile from here. We’ll level with ya, it can work, it does work, and it is pretty awesome. Enough of the puns already though. The level is mounted in the shroud, which just happens to be on the bore axis, so the cant indication is much more immediate than with a similar size level hanging off the scope a few inches off the axis. This different vector allows the SACS to indicate before a scope mounted level even budges.

We fully understand that some long distance folks will want to opt for higher tech devices, wider/longer levels, or the cool electronic levels, and that’s perfectly OK with us. If you’re hunter who wants to make sure you’re doing what you can to ensure an ethical shot is in the offing, without hanging more brush grabbing stuff off the side of your optic, then we have got something for you. For the PRS guys running RA’s & RAP’s, the SACS is an awesome way to not have to bob your head to see that scope mounted level while you are on the clock. You don’t “look at” the SACS so much as just “see” it while you are on the scope. It doesn’t require any head movement whatsoever.

The bottom line is, now you don’t just replace your OEM bolt shroud because it is plastic, you can replace it because you want to add more integrity AND some functional utility, all in one device. The ICD SACS are machined from 6061 Aluminum and they are finished in a black Type II anodizing, all with an MSRP of under $55.00. As with all of our products, they are 100% made in America in our southwest Idaho machining center.



CAV-15 MKII Update

I have some good news and some bad news. I’ll start with the bad. The CAV-15 MKII, the most successful polymer AR-15 lower ever made, is going away. The good news is that there will be a CAV-15 MKIII!

From GWACS Armory, makers of the CAV-15 lower:

We are thankful for InRange TV’s WWSD project expanding the interest in the GWACS CAV 15 product. With this expanded interest we have virtually sold out of our MK II product line.

This year the CAV-15MKII turns 15 years old and unfortunately during our last production run our injection mold reached its end of life.

We are currently finalizing the design of the CAV-15 MK III that will maintain the same strength and durability as the MK II while including the most requested new features. We have incorporated some features recommended by Russell Phagan aka SinistralRifleman.com who has been involved with the CAV-15 since 2001. These improvements assure the future CAV-15 models are in line with the needs of the modern firearms market.

We will be announcing the availability of the CAV-15 MK III and MK IV later this year!

If you want to receive more information as we near the preorder event please create an account on our web page so that you can receive updates. If you already have an account you will be notified by email.

We want to thank everyone for the enormous support of the GWACS Armory CAV-15 MK II.

E93 Finds Another Use for the IWC QD Micro Flush Sling Mount

I’ve mentioned the QD Micro Flush Sling Mounts from Impact Weapons Components here on JTT before. They are about as handy as a widget can be and it seems like I am always finding new ways to use them.

Echo Nine Three just found a new way to use them that might just take the cake. They were able to install one on a Russian triangle stock with some very slight modifications. The mod places a QD sling socket on the stock near the receiver where it works for both single and 2 point slings. The installation is very clean with most of the QD Micro Flush Sling Mount tucked inside the triangle of the stock.


Hudson C1 Compensator for H9 Pistols

Hudson recently rolled out factory threaded barrels so it makes sense to follow those with a factory compensator. The C1 Compensator is designed to visually blend right into the lines and contours of the H9 family of pistols. The compact compensator is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and hard anodized.

The C1 Compensator is available for pre-order now at a discounted price. It is expected to begin shipping in August.
