TangoDown Vickers Tactical Glock 42 Slide Stop

I have some great news for Glock 42 shooters. The excellent, Larry Vickers designed TangoDown Vickers Tactical Slide Stop will be available for the Glock 42 soon. The Vickers Tactical Glock Slide Stop is not just a well designed slide stop from an ergonomic standpoint but it is actually very durable. In my experience, Glock’s OEM extended slide stop is not as robust as it could be and, more importantly, it isn’t available for the Glock 42. The Vicker’s Tactical part is made from 4130 steel and stands up to hard use very well.

You can pre-order at Red State Tactical.

TangoDown Glock 42 Magazine Release

The first, and still my favorite, TangoDown/Vickers Tactical Glock part was the Gen. 1/2/3 magazine release. I highly recommend it due to it’s rounded corners and just the right amount of extension. Now, that same functionality is available for the Glock 42 with the release of the TangoDown Glock 42 Magazine Release. Find it at Red State Tactical.

Vickers Tactical Glock 42 Basepads

There is at least one Vickers Tactical part on most of my Glocks. The LAV knows his way around Gaston’s creation. Now, he has turned his attention to Glock’s latest – the Glock 42.

Larry Vickers has once again teamed up with Tango Down to produce a new Glock product – Vickers Tactical Glock 42 Basepads. The new base pads add some additional real estate on the front strap of the grip to make the littlest Glock a bit easier to shoot. They taper down to flush with the back of the grip which is good news from a concealment perspective since it is the butt of the grip that you actually have to worry about printing.

They are also scalloped in a similar way to the Vickers Tactical Glock Basepads for full size glocks. These scallops give you great leverage when you need to strip a magazine out of a gun during a malfunction clearance.

These will be available soon and you can expect to see more Vickers Tactical parts for the Glock 42 soon (hopefully a mag released and slide release).

Now this has potential. The LAV, Larry Vickers, has announced a new YouTube show and it looks like it is going to be great. If you haven’t already, you are going to want to subscribe to the VickersTacticalInc Youtube Channel.

Vickers Tactical Glock Extended Magazine Release

This is a product that I have been using since it hit the market. The standard Glock magazine release is small, low profile, and can be somewhat difficult to hit without really shifting your grip. Glock makes an extended magazine release that may be fine for competition but it is too large for a carry gun. I have seen it interfere with holsters or even cause the magazine to be dropped when the Glock was gripped aggressively or laid on a flat surface.

Larry Vickers recognized the need for functional Glock magazine release that was larger than the stock part but not so large that it causes more problems than it solves. The result is the Vickers Glock Extended Magazine Release which is made by Tango Down for Vickers Tactical. It is available for the 9mm/.40S&W/.357SIG/.45GAP sized frames and the .45ACP/10MM sized frames.

The Vickers magazine release is on the left.

This release is perfect for a carry gun. It is long enough that it makes reaching the release much easier but no so long that it interferes with grip or holstering. All of the edges are nicely rounded which is nice considering how sharp some aftermarket magazine release can be. This is basically the only extended magazine release that I know of for Glocks that is suitable for carry.

This magazine release, along with a good set of sights, and maybe my favorite trigger set up is all that a Glock really needs.
