Gun Review: Lipsey’s Larry Vickers Glock 19 Limited Edition

    Lipsey’s makes some very nice limited edition guns and this particular Glock 19 with Larry vickers parts is no exception. I have to say up front this is the best Glock I’ve ever handled, carried and shot.

    Shown with the Safariland security holster which fits approx 30 different pistols.

    This particular Glock has the RTF2 frame in gray. It is a Gen3 pistol. The RTF2 frame provides the shooter with the best factory grip of any Glock.The grip feels good and while having an aggressive finish it isn’t uncomfortable. The parts that come with the pistol are the Vickers extended slide release, extended magazine release and baseplates for the two magazines that come with the pistol. These parts are not installed but come with the package so the new owner can choose what they want to install. None of the parts are difficult to install even for a new shooter. A disassembly tool is also included and fits in the grip.

    The sights are the Vickers Wilson Combat VT variety with a u-notch rear sight and a fiber optic front sight. The sights are installed by Glock at the Glock factory.


    I’ve carried this Glock for many weeks and honestly enjoyed carrying it and taking many trips to the range. Accuracy with most defensive ammo I used was good. The best results were with the SIG 9mm. I even spent some time back at 100 yards shooting steel plates and it really wasn’t that difficult.

    Now as most of you know I’m a 1911 guy so for me to praise a Glock is a bit unusual but that’s what I’m doing here! I am open minded and not locked into the one pistol is the be all end all that everyone should carry. If you can find one of these they are very much worth looking at.

    One thing I did do is install a McNally trigger after Nathaniel S reviewed one for a gen 4. McNally has several triggers to choose from including the gen 3. McNally article After installing the McNally trigger and adjusting it I spent some time on the range and watched my groups shrink. With adjustments for takeup and reset you really can set this trigger up to accommodate your preference in trigger pull.

    With the RTF2 gen3 frame, Vickers parts and adding the McNally trigger it makes this Glock a winner in my mind and one I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

    The MSRP for this limited edition is $729.00. Street cost will most likely be in the $650 range. For more information and ordering visit the Lipsey’s website.
