This classic image of John Noveske had me wonder what he is holding. I found out it is a Mako product called the UTA (Universal Tactical Attachment). The giant hook has an integrated picatinny mount so you can mount the Glock onto the rail of a long gun. It is an adapter that plugs into a Gen 3 Glock grip. It reminds me of the ENDO Glock stock adapter but it does not have any upper support on the beavertail. So I imagine the Glock will move a bit under recoil and muzzle climb.

I think the A3 Tactical double picatinny clamp is a better solution when using a frame mounted rail setup. There should be less movement when the Glock is fired.

    Not sure if serious…

    No Glock attachment is “a better solution” lol.

    • Nicholas C

      Agreed. But when talking about a weapon mounted solution, frame mounting would be more stable.

      • Johnsmyname

        Absolutely, no argument there. If I had to eat a turd sandwich I would definitely want ketchup too.

      • Bill

        Welding the frame to the receiver would be even more stable, and even more nuts.

  • Mmmtacos

    At the rate things are going it’s gonna be considered Fudd to want to keep your pistol on your hip.

    • Core

      I’ll still have a Colt SA Navy on my hip, and not be worried.

      UID you make my tactical snowflake smile. 🙂 Keep up the good work.

  • Gary Kirk

    If you’re gonna go this Tactitarded, at least put it on one of those 9mm ARs that use glock mags.. At least then your mags all match.. But then, what’s the point.. Oh wait, never mind..

    • Audie Bakerson

      I think there MAY be a legit use for a suppressed 45 in a specific mission profile,

      • Toxie

        9mm suppresses better then .45 man….Just sayin’.

        • iksnilol

          Yup, if using subsonics. BUt then again, most .45 ammo is subsonic whilst most 9mm ammo isn’t.

          For us civvies it probably isn’t an issue to get subsonic 9mm, don’t know how it is for military.

          • Budogunner

            It is easy but a little more expensive for civilians to get heavier, subsonic 9mm ammo. However, the military doesn’t have to deal with the two tax stamps this would require (one gor the suppressor, the other for the pistol which becomes an SBR)

          • Core

            It’s in the NSN supply catalog.

          • iksnilol

            I do not know what that means.

          • DJ9r

            It’s available in the GOV/Military’s purchase system (NSN = National Stock Number, the number you would use to order an item through the military supply catalog/system).

            You’d also need to have “permission” to buy it, either through an entry in your unit’s Table of Allowances, or a special exemption for specified use(s), such as testing or special missions. If you can justify the purchase to your commander (verbally or in writing, usually the commander’s choice), they’ll normally sign-off on a small number purchase for testing darn near anything.

      • Adamn

        There actually is a sensible application for a secondary under barrel configuration. I wonder if any TFB guru knows it.

        Carrying and drawing a suppressed pistol is always a problem, but I guess if it’s a mission requirement it’d still be better to go with a dedicated holster like Crye or S&S solution. Attaching a pistol to a lightweight carabine is a rather bad idea for the carabine manouverability – which is why no one uses it. But you get rid of the “Joker” kind of draw from Eagle Ind. type holster issue. Makes some sense Audie Bakerson 🙂

  • Chris

    This is the result of molon-ing your labes to much.

  • Bill

    I’m assuming that this is in remembrance of John, and not at all about stupid gun tricks.

  • Martin Grønsdal

    this is when you operate on a level where most operators don’t even operate operationally, and you need to be even more tactical and think of redundancy.

  • THaleyhandcream

    Two is one, one is none?

    • Sunshine_Shooter

      If by that you mean that using these devices makes two good guns into one gun that is worthless, you are correct.

  • Badwolf

    I’m waiting for stuff like these to show up at a movie.

    Good guy unexpectedly runs out of ammo… gets trapped by bad guy… switches to rail mounted pistol… saves the day…

  • Curious_G

    I like how the author engaged in the review as if this were something that made sense in any way, shape, or form.

  • Gabe

    While I find these comments funny, I have a serious question. Would this not require you to SBR any handgun mounted to the long gun? Seems impractical in use but even more if you have to get a stamp for your sidearm.

    • Tony O

      Yes, doing this would require a Form 1 for an SBR, as it essentially “attaches a stock” to a firearm with a rifled barrel shorter than 16″.

      • Mr Mxyzptlk

        But what if the weapon it is attached to has a barrel longer than 16 inches? Either the whole thing is the weapon and the 16″ barrel of the host covers it, or they aren’t the same weapon so the stock doesn’t matter.

        Even if it would be classed as an SBR, would it be legal without a Form 1 if it was attached to a 20″ barrel rifle so that the front of the rifle barrel was more than 16″ ahead of the pistols breech face?

        • Oregon213

          What if I put a pistol brace on the whole thing?

          Everything about this post (except Noveske) is crazy dumb.

        • iksnilol

          If you put a 16 in barrel on the pistol you’d be a-okay with the law.

          • Mr Mxyzptlk

            That part is obvious, but the question is whether you legally need to if it is attached to a weapon which itself has a 16″ barrel. The other big question is whether the pistol actually needs to have a 16″ barrel, or whether the front of the barrel of the rifle would jsut ahve to be at the 16″ point. Guns do not actually have to have a 16″ “barrel”, they can have barrel shrouds or permanent flash hiders to take them up to this length, so conceptually the barrel of the host rifle could be argued to perform the same function.

          • iksnilol

            Yeah, but the host has a differemt serial. So it is a separate weapon legally speaking.

    • Core

      When you attach it to the rifle, carbine, pistol or SBR it becomes an Any Other Weapon AOW and the primary becomes and SBR (I think). Not 100% sure if you would need a stamp for attaching a pistol to a pistol? This may fall into a gray area. lol I know you are not allowed to attach a fore-grip to a pistol without some sort of stamp making it a SBR I believe. So that would make a Glock with a Glock attached a SBR’d AOW SBR? I’d like to see your RFI to the BATFE.

    I think the title photo is an unfortunate choice. Looks a little over the top, insanity wise. I just know the nuts will want to use this photo to scare people. We don’t need to give them any more…………….ammo.

    Finally we can put an AK on our AR and not worry about which is better cause we’ll have both of them.
