Vickers Tactical Slide Racker for G42
With each new Glock model, Larry Vickers is the first to cast a cold, hard stare of reality on its intended mission and customer base. After extended range sessions, few things stood out for improvement, but one thing was clear: the slide was difficult to grasp and cycle under normal circumstances, let alone high-stress ‘events’. The small slide, shallow finger purchase cuts and stout recoil spring assembly make for tough initial chambering, especially for women or anyone with less than optimal finger/hand strength. Outside of an expensive trip to a machine shop or gunsmith to make the slide purchase cuts deeper, there was no fix. Until the TD design team got the call. The GSR-01 is a top quality drop-in part that solves the issue cold. Injection molded of glass-reinforced nylon with stainless steel reinforcement just like the OEM part, it replaces the striker retention plate in minutes with no other modification to the sidearm. Once in place, the GSR-01 offers easy, effortless and positive slide cycling under any condition.
Easy to install, small enough to use as ccw. Make much easier to rack the slide. In my business a handle lots of chemicals. The skin on my hands and fingers is really thin and easy to crack. Your divice is the solution. Thanks
Part did what expected ,very happy lot easier to rack the slide.
Easy to install and works well for person with weak hands and unable to rack slide without assistance. Small enough to be canceled without issue.
perfect tool for wife who is learning to shoot and doesn't carry with chambered round.
I've been needing this modification since 1st purchasing my G42, extremely hard racking, Not Anymore!
The item we received was the wrong part. When I notified them they went out of their way to ship the correct part. Would definitely do business again with them.
Due to manufacturing tolerances this product has a tendency to tilt left and right which is somewhat annoying when looking through the rear site but is a real boon to old hands when racking the slide. It does what it is designed to do.
