Vickers Tactical Slide Racker For Gen5 Glocks

Larry Vickers and Tango Down have released their new Slide Racker for Gen5 Glock pistols. The new Vickers Tactical Glock accessory is called the GSR-04 and it features serrated wings on both sides. The wings are a bit wider than the factory Glock slide but not so wide that it would get in the way during concealed carry.

While I haven’t had any issues with racking the slides on any of my Glocks, I can see the benefit of a product like this. The GSR-04 gives the factory Glock slide extra traction and grip that may be useful during high-stress situations or if a shooter is wearing gloves, has sweaty hands, etc. The GSR-04 is easy to install with no modifications to your pistol needed. It simply replaces the factory Glock slide end plate. It’s made out of injection molded glass-reinforced nylon with stainless steel reinforcements.

This isn’t the first Glock slide racking attachment we’ve seen, there is the TacRack Slide Racking Aid and Chambermax TA-1. However both those options added bulk and looked pretty odd.

The Vickers Tactical GSR-04 is made in the USA and fits the Gen5 Glock 17, 19, 19X, 26 and 34. They’re available in black and have an MSRP of $18.95. Check them out at

The Vickers Tactical Slide Racker is also available for the Glock 42 and Glock 43.

Building on the success of our GSR-01 through-03 Slide Rackers, we now offer the GSR-04 for all currently released sub compact, compact and full size Glock Gen 5 pistols. All of the features pioneered in the initial GSR- line, continue on for Glock’s latest Generation of pistol perfection.

The GSR-04 is a top quality drop-in part, requiring no other modifications to the firearm. Injection molded of glass-reinforced nylon with stainless steel reinforcement just like the OEM part, it will NOT damage your Firing Pin Spacer Sleeve like many aftermarket aluminum retention plates. Once in place, the GSR-04 offers easy, effortless and positive slide cycling under any condition.
