    Enjoy!!

    Seemed kind of gimmicky when I first got them on, but I've grown to appreciate them in these past few days. Worth 4 bux a piece in my opinion.

    Got mine last week & I really like them. As well I got the new Gen4 Tactical mag release & it's great!! I've been using his Tactical slide stop on my Gen4 for a year & love it as well. Tango Down has great Glock goodies! :cool:

    Yea I agree the Vickers TangoDown slide-stop is the best one available.

    Just skateboard tape. Got a huge sheet for 3 dollars.

    I've got the Gen4 mag release and the slide release on my Gen4 G17 and G26. These look pretty good, gonna have to try them out.

    I threw one on my 26 mag just to see what it was like, and must say I kind of like it since I curl my pinky underneath. The rest are on 15 rounders. Will shoot tomorrow and see if it does anything for me on the sub-compact.

    As odd as it may sound, these baseplates feel better IMO. They seem to steady the grip better they way my left hand butts up against them, but that's just IMO. YMMV.


    I am usually the first to condemn aftermarket gadgets, but Vickers' stuff enhances the Glock IMO. His stuff is well thought out & T&E'd before marketed.

    Had a request to post pics from the top and rear while inserted into weapon. First pic needed to be angled a little so you can see it. It's not visible looking directly down as shown below.

    thanks kodiak and Ineedmilk for the great pics.

    Ineedmilk...how did you do that white letter to your mag?

    Kodiak any discomfort on the with these plates?
    They seem like a practical "tact-useful" product

    Not at all, that little ledge on the side feels good between my finger with pinky curled underneath on the sub-compact. Will put 2-3 hundred rounds down range tomorrow and see how it goes.

    The indent's on the side's are perfect for ripping out a stuck mag in the event of a double feed.
