Vickers Tactical, headed by the legendary Larry Vickers, is producing what seems like a much welcomed modification for Glocks. Vickers Tactical is now selling an extended slide release which will give Glock owners a little more real estate to manipulate the slide release; Glock’s factory slide release is notorious for being a little too slim to easily function, especially under stress.
The VTSS (Vickers Tactical Slide Stop) was specifically designed to ease the function of the slide release while operating it with gloves on. Its constructed out of 4130 chome moly steel giving it durability and longevity. The VTSS will fit on almost all glocks (17, 17l, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 31, 32, 33, 34 and 34) and costs only $20. It is not a drop in replacement though, Vickers Tactical suggest you let a certified Glock Armorer or professional gunsmith do the installation for you. Given the popularity of Vickers Tactical’s other Glock accessory, the extended mag catch, I have no doubts the slide stop will be another must have Glock accessory.
