Handi-Racker Slide Assist Device

posted on January 15, 2014

Although many shooters choose to own semi-auto pistols, not all of them have the hand strength necessary to rack the slide. The Handi-Racker block is designed to make the loading and unloading of pistols easier to accomplish. With the block set on the top of the slide at the muzzle end of the gun, the user can press the block against a hard surface to provide the leverage needed to chamber a fresh round, or to unload the pistol. Best of all, the fingers of the hand holding the block do not cross in front of the pistol’s muzzle when the block is in use. This product is available in four different sizes to accommodate a wide variety of semi-autos, ranging from diminutive pocket pistols up to full-size .45s.

Review: Leupold DeltaPoint Micro

Leupold’s DeltaPoint Micro doesn’t look like any other slide-mounted optic. Rather than using a flat-bottomed design, the DP Micro features an L-shaped mounting surface that covers the top-rear portion of its host’s slide, with a small 9 mm lens sitting atop the gun and the battery compartment overhanging the aft of the slide.
