Back on November 29th (2016), DefenseReview (DR) published a piece on DR writer/contributor Jeff Gurwitch running the VooDoo Innovations VDI Enforcer Glock 17 (G17) Slide/Upper with a VDI Glock 17 Barrel and Grip Force Adapter extended beavertail grip tang for us. Well, as it happens, DR shot some good photos and a nice demo video of the VDI Slayer AND VDI Enforcer Glock 17 Slide/Upper Groups at SHOT Show 2016, so we figured we’d share them with our readers.

The VooDoo Innovations VDI Slayer Glock 17 Slide/Upper Group we viewed and handled appeared to be a really nice package, as it comes with red dot optic and back-up iron sight (BUIS) cuts, a VDI Glock 17 Threaded Barrel (silencer/sound suppressor barrel) and a rugged, waterproof LifeCoat Melonite/PVD coating. Outfit it with a Nous Defions/Arsenal Democracy SwiTC/H Trigger with on/off-action and an Arsenal Democracy Blackside Suppressed Glock 17/22 Pistol Holster (developed in conjunction with KMFJ, LLC), and you’d make it even nicer (for combat/tactical professionals and experienced civilian tactical shooters).

Anyway, Defense Review likes what we’ve seen of the VDI Slayer, so far, and look forward to getting one in for testing at some point. In the meantime, enjoy the photos and video we shot.
