TangoDown/Vicker Tactical Glock 42 Upgrades

Red State Tactical has the new TangoDown/Vickers Tactical upgrades for the Glock 42. They have a magazine release and an extended base plate.

They are currently out of stock at the moment however you can request to be notified and be put on a waiting list. I went through the same issue when getting the Dark Earth Glock Gen4 mag releases and base plates for my G21 and G35.

The G42 magazine release is similar in design to the Gen4 mag releases. They are $16.92 on Red State Tactical’s website. I suspect that these will be as nice as the ones I have on my Gen4 Glocks.

The extended magazine base plates are something I wanted since I first shot the G42 back at ShotShow. But as I don’t have a G42 yet, I can wait for these to get back in stock. They are only $12.75 on the website.

    Every time you make a product with ‘tactical’ in the name, god kills a kitten. Please, think of the kittens.

      “Tactical” is a part of the brand’s name, not the product name. Reading comprehension is your friend

      • Vhyrus

        That means that every one of their products has tactical in the name… someone call the ASPCA!

      Then I shall make an entire line of tactical kitchen ware making sure each and every item has “tactical” somewhere in the name because I hate cats

    Prefer the Glock’s factory mag release why screw up a good system? Some men have to tinker.

    how many more millimeters is this over the stock mag release?

    So…buy a subcompact because the grip is small and concealable, then buy an accessory that makes it bigger. I cringe every time I see a subcompact with a magazine extension.

      I completely agree with you. People want a small gun and then complain that it’s uncomfortable or that they can’t get their whole hand on it. It doesn’t make any sense to make me.

    Did 007 carry a 380 pistol?
