TangoDown products are made in the USA and the company is led by a subject matter expert on injection molded plastics, having come from the fast food toy manufacturing sphere before developing products for AR15s, Glocks, and other tactical firearms. The product line is still based on the original ideas that set the company apart from competition like Magpul.
For example, TangoDown parts for your FN SCAR rifle will make it easier to grip the weapon and get on target with it, and their SCAR panels have become popular with owners of non-SCAR rifles who need textured rail covers. Of course, their famous vertical rifle grips are still available, including the stubby vertical grip or Rick grip for those who don’t need the full-length version. A texture free model of the Tango Down battlegrip was part of the original equipment package for the HK416 back in the day, although that’s not known by many.
TangoDown’s partnership with Larry Vickers has brought many Vickers Tactical parts for your Glock. Their extended mag catch for Gen 3 Glocks has been a favorite of many for years, balancing ease of use with prevention of inadvertent mag drops, and their grip plug and takedown punch tool allows you to take apart your Glock in the field. It simply twists into place in the cavity behind the magazine, staying out of the way when you don’t need it.
The popular iO cover for your Trijicon MRO or Aimpoint T-1 micro keeps dirt, mud, and debris from reducing your ability to see the target, or worse, from damaging the lenses of your expensive optic. The need for covers for these optics was demonstrated very strongly by the iO covers, which Tango Down acquired as part of their product line several years ago.
TangoDown also makes magazines and it could be said that this product is the glue that holds the company together. The Tango Down ARC magazine for the AR-15 is a unique two-piece design without a floorplate, designed to be an extremely durable alternative to other polymer magazines on the market. It’s available in a variety of capacities, including reduced capacity versions for those in ban states.
