Red State Tactical is selling TangoDown/Vickers Tactical’s new upgrades for the Glock 42, including a magazine release and an extended base plate.

According to the Firearm Blog, the new magazine release is similar in design to the Dark Earth Glock Gen4 mag releases. The extended base plate, meanwhile, extends the end user’s grip and remains slim enough for concealment. It comes in packs of two.

The magazine release is currently out of stock, but the user can request to be put on a waiting list to be notified when it is available for sale. The manufacturer suggested retail price is $16.92. Similar to the mag release, the tactical magazine base plate is currently out of stock, but you can get on the waiting list. The manufacturer suggested retail price for the base plate is $12.75.
