You know that tired old argument where some internet commando inertially spouts the “it's called a slide stop, not a slide release” line? Well, you can hear it once more when you head into your local Tango Down dealer to scoop up one of the new Vickers Tactical Gen5 slide stops for your Glock.

Even if you're one of the slide stop isn't a slide release people you might appreciate the added functionality of the Vickers Tactical part. Not only should it make locking the slide open easier, but it should also make it easier to use the slide lock as a slide release thanks to a unique profile and some deep serrations added to improve purchase on the tiny metal part.


Tango Down says that the Vickers slide stop is stamped from 4130 chrome moly steel and is then heat treated the same way as the OEM slide stop is. After all of that is done, Tango Down finishes it with a non-reflective black finish that they refer to as a “hard coat finish.”


The new Vickers Tactical Gen5 Glock slide stop carries an MSRP of $27.95 and is available now at your local Tango Down dealer. Visit the Tango Down website for information on the rest of the Vickers Tactical lineup.
