The Larry Vickers designed, TangoDown produced magazine release for Glocks is one of my favorite Glock add-ons. Given my experience with the magazine release, I have been very excited to try the new TangoDown Vickers Tactical Slide Stop for Glocks which is now available.
The problem with most extended slide stops for the Glock is that a right hand shooter’s support hand can unintentionally contact the slide stop when the shooter is using a high hand grip. This unintentional contact can cause the slide to lock back before the magazine is empty or prevent the slide from locking back when magazine is empty.
The Vickers Tactical Slide Stop is designed to give a fairly large amount of surface area without being so overly large that it is prone to contacting the support hand. It has a fairly aggressive texture that makes it very easy to operate, even with gloves. Other slide stops extend to the rear of the Glock to provide more leverage. The Vickers Tactical Slide Stop extends out from the frame to provide a “shelf” that the thumb can press down on in order to release the slide.
I have one of these in hand for an upcoming review and so far I am really impressed.
