Firearms distributor Lipsey’s pairs up with industry icon Larry Vickers to serve up more goodies on the popular Vickers Glock series, adding the new full flat dark earth Glock 17 and 19.

Built on Vickers’ preferred RTF2 frame, the initial production run of the FDE models will be limited to just 2,000 G17 and 3,000 G19.

Offering the new AmeriGlo Pro I-Dot tritium front sight partnered with Wilson Combat U-Notch rear sights, the pistol also includes Vickers TangoDown extended mag release, extended slide catch and matching FDE magazine base plates. An Allen wrench ships with the pistol for rear sight adjustment.

“I’ve run a lot of pistols set up every way imaginable but this yellow/green front sight picks up as fast as anything out there,” Vickers said in a press release.

Now the fourth Glock in the Lipsey’s/Vickers Tactical lineup, Lipsey’s Vice President and Product Development Manager Jason Cloessner said this pistol won’t be the last.

“The Vickers Glock project is one of our most popular and requested exclusives,” Cloessner said in a statement. “With the popularity of our Full FDE exclusive that’s been around for a few years, we saw a void that this Vickers gun fills perfectly. We had to have Larry’s stamp on it.”

The FDE Glock retails for $729.
