Earlier this month at 2018 NRA Annual Meeting, Wilson Combat has introduced their new Vickers Elite Gen5 Glock 19 and Glock 17 pistols. The customization package was designed in cooperation with Larry Vickers and represents Larry’s vision of the improved Glock carry and service pistol.

Sides of the grips, as well as the thumb rest areas of frames of these pistols, are laser stippled with Vickers Elite pattern. There are Vickers Tactical logos engraved on the grips and Wilson Combat logos on the stippled thumb pads. These pistols also feature Tango Down/Vickers Tactical magazine release buttons, grip plugs and magazine floor plates. The slides have front serrations and also serrations on the top. The pistols feature Vickers Elite Battle Sights with a fiber optic front sight. The actions of these pistols are also tuned. There are some additional options too that can be ordered separately.

After all this work is done, the pistols are once again checked. Here is how Wilson Combat describes this process.

The Wilson Combat – Vickers Elite Package for Gen 5 GLOCK® is built on brand new GLOCK® 19 or GLOCK® 17 9mm pistols and are thoroughly tested by our gunsmiths prior to shipment so your trigger pull, accuracy, and reliability are verified after customization. Limited sight and finish options are available to add to these packages.


Below you can find a recently released Vickers Tactical video where Larry Vickers demonstrates these handguns, tells about their features and as you would expect from a Vickers Tactical video there is also a lot of cool slow-motion footage.

The base price for these Vickers Elite Glock pistols is $1,350.

So what we have here is one of the most reliable pistols on the market improved by some of the most knowledgeable and experienced folks in the industry. I guess you can’t go wrong with these guns.

    So...wouldn't It be cheaper to just BUY the S&W M&P?
    Of course If they had just started with an M&P It would have been easier & cheaper.

    Wouldn't own ANYTHING that the fat, condescending POS Larry Vickers had anything to do with. My experience with him and the parts that bear his 'signature' have been less than optimal.

    I trust Wilson Combat and have used many of their parts on 1911 customizations that I have done. Though I prefer Tripp Research springs and followers, I have several of their 1911 mags and they are tip top. Wilson Combat custom 1911's are fine though not the at the top of the custom ladder and in my opinion not worth their premium price tag.

    The Glocks look cool except for the 'V' crap. Not sure how much better they would 'perform'.

      @Yarbles I would imagine based on Larry went through he would probably prefer fat as opposed to crippled or dead. Though he has shifted a few pounds recently.
