Must-See Handgun Accessories


The best way to add efficiency or a personal touch to any handgun — whether it’s a new purchase or a family heirloom — is to accessorize. Adding bling can not only make a handgun more effective it can give it added appeal — such as the implementation of custom grips or a drop-in trigger or laser sight, as examples. More mundane but equally important purchases such as cases, holsters and ammunition storage options complete the package. And as a retailer, it’s important to remember it isn’t necessarily what the customer needs, but rather what he or she wants when it comes to accessorizing a handgun purchase. So, make sure you have an ample assortment of accouterments on hand to satisfy all of those individual wants and needs. Here are a few to get you started.

Allen Company Patriot Handgun Case

The Patriot series of firearm cases by Allen Company features a custom camo pattern that was developed in-house — with red, white and blue colors proudly displayed throughout the product line. The Patriot 9-inch handgun case is stitched together using durable Endura exterior fabric with a soft knit lining and thick foam padding inside to protect the firearm. To keep the handgun safe and secure, the user can lock the zipper closed using a small padlock. Designed and made in the USA. MSRP: $12.99.


ArachniGRIP Slide Spider Optic System Grip (pictured above) ArachniGRIP’s new R.D.O.S. (red-dot optic system) grips offer the same comfort and advantage of the original Slide Spider grips, but in a design that works with mounted handgun optic systems. By dividing the original Slide Spider grip into three pieces, ArachniGRIP was able to add gripping material to the left and right sides of the slide regardless of whether an optic system is mounted. The third piece is designed to be attached to the removable metal slide plate for when the optic system is not mounted. Slide Spider slide grips are available for most semi-auto pistol models and give the shooter increased control with a safe and secure hold. MSRP: $19.95.


Blackhawk T-Series RDS Holster

Blackhawk has expanded its popular T-Series line with its Level 3 Duty Light Bearing holsters that are compatible with pistol mounted red-dot sights — designed for use with the Trijicon RMR/SRO, Leupold Delta Point Pro, SIG Romeo1Pro and other similar-sized optics. Developed to support law enforcement officers who are authorized to use red-dot sights on patrol sidearms, T-Series RDS holsters provide maximum protection for both the firearm and optic and will initially be available in a right-hand, light-bearing Level 3 Duty (L3D) model for the Glock 17. Additional models will soon be available including both Level 2 Duty (L2D) and L3D in left- and right-hand configurations for the Glock 17 and Sig Sauer P320 pistols. MSRP: $149.95-$169.95.


Gun Storage Solutions Mag Minder

Free up space by storing gun magazines under the shelf with Gun Storage Solutions’ Mag Minder — a simple and space-saving design that creates easy access to magazines. Available in two lengths — 11 and 16 inches deep — the Mag Minder and will support fully loaded magazines that have a base plate and is a great storage solution for any gun safe, cabinet or closet. The 11-inch model stores up to seven double-stack mags and up to four AR/AK or PMAG mags. The 16-inch model stores up to 11 double-stack mags or up to six AR/AK and PMAG mags. Mag Minders are made from powder-coated steel. MSRP: $14.95 - $17.95.



The Handi-Racker was developed to safely manipulate the pistol slide, allowing the user to chamber rounds, clear the pistol, clear jams or work on the pistol with ease and is now offered at a new lower-than-ever price. And it comes in new bright safety colors — the full-size unit will sport a florescent orange finish and operate most duty-size pistols and the compact model, which fits most concealed-carry guns, is florescent green. The two sizes fit 95 percent of all pistols. A new manufacturing process allows for the addition of grooves that provide a more positive grip. MSRP: $19.99.


Mission First Tactical Glock 19 Minimalist Holster

Mission First Tactical’ s Glock 19 Minimalist is a low-profile holster with all of the performance and reliability of a full-size holster, for use inside the waistband (IWB) and in the Appendix and 5 o’clock positions. Both right- and left-hand positioning is accomplished with the removal of the claw and use of the provided spacer. An audible click with added side retention makes each draw smooth and secure — ideal for concealed carry. The holster includes a tuckable belt clip that accommodates a 1- to 1.5-inch wide belt. Or remove the clip and claw and add a static-line tether to keep the trigger secure while stowing the firearm inside a nightstand safe, purse, briefcase, vehicle console, etc. MSRP: $34.99.


MTM Case-Gard Side-Slide Pistol Ammo Box

The MTM Case-Gard Side-Slide ammo box holds up to 50 rounds of pistol ammunition and features a slide-top lid — allowing quick bulk access to cartridges, or users can tip out the precise amount of ammo needed. Simply depress the one-touch release to slide the top of the Side-Slide pistol ammo box lid to the desired amount of ammo required and tilt the box. The transparent clear blue or clear green design provides for visible inventorying without the need to open the box. Shooters can stack them in a gun safe, range bag or on the shooting bench. Available in 9mm and .45 ACP. Retail: $2.86/Each.


Nighthawk Custom 1911 Drop-In Trigger

An all-in-one unit, the drop-in trigger system (DTS) from Nighthawk Custom replaces the existing hammer, hammer strut, sear, disconnector and sear spring. The existing sear pin and hammer pin will be retained for use with the DTS, but no other parts are necessary for installation. With a steel housing securing the unit, the DTS features all fully machined stainless steel internal components. The traditional three-pronged sear spring is no longer necessary because the springs for the disconnector and sear are built into the unit. A single-leg grip safety spring is included to replace the existing sear spring. Trigger pull is approximately 3.75 to 4 pounds after the proper break-in period. MSRP: $299.99.


Sig Sauer GS-P365-Green LaserMax Sight

The Sig Sauer GS-P365-Green LaserMax laser sight with GripSense technology is a great sighting solution for small and easily concealed Sig Sauer P365 and P365XL pistols — a solid choice for training, concealed carry, home defense and backup use. The sight projects a green laser aiming point downrange and GripSense utilizes technology similar to that used in smartphones, with a detection zone in the area where the shooter’s middle finger indexes the trigger guard and a grip sensor to instantly activate the laser. It’s also available in a red beam model. Other features include an ambidextrous on/off switch that reinforces safe firearm handling and external battery access door with tool-less entry. MSRP: $159.


Sightmark Accudot 9mm Red Laser Boresight

Sightmark’s Accudot 9mm red laser boresight is designed to save time and money by increasing the odds of hitting paper with the first shot when zeroing a firearm. It features a rechargeable, lithium-ion battery that uses power only when chambered in the firearm. Constructed of durable brass, the Accudot is ideal for sighting-in any 9mm handgun at distances from 15 to 100 yards. A calibrated diode improves overall accuracy, while an included USB charging dock allows for on-the-go charging. The unit includes a battery charger, USB cable, AC plug, carry case and limited lifetime warranty. MSRP: $59.99.


Viridian .22-Mag. Revolver Grip Lasers

In partnership with North American Arms, Viridian Weapon Technologies has launched a grip laser for all NAA .22-Mag. revolvers, including the PUG-D — a five-shot capacity wheel gun designed for self-defense. The PUG-D has been a popular choice for on- and off-body carry for years and the addition of a reliable, highly visible laser as part of the grip increases its effectiveness in a variety of tactical situations. The highly visible red laser activates automatically when the user grips the handgun for rapid target acquisition. It features a rubber over-molded design and fits all magnum frame revolvers. MSRP: $199.
