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.
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.
