    Hi there,
    Just got a new G19, wanting to put an extended mag release. How does the Extended Glock Factory Mag Release compare to the other brands. Price wise it seems awesome for a factory part.

    (This is solely my experience. Other opinions may vary.)
    I put one on my 17. I did not like it. I shot 150 rounds with it installed and quit shooting in my first, and only session. (for reference I usually shoot 300 per session.) It was rubbing the pad of my thumb on my off hand. I really did not have an issue with the stock release. I thought the Glock release was a good value and overall, a good upgrade. For me, it didn't work out so well.
     

  3. I like mine but there is a company that makes a more rounded entended bit... Im sure someone will toss it up here for ya.

    Vickers extended controls available at Nettac.com or Tangodown.com. More expensive than OEM controls.

    I saw no need for them in the 9/40 frames, but I like them in the 10mm/45 frames. Probably because there's more real estate to cross to get to it. I've never had a problem with them. One of my .45 GAPs came with it and I liked it, so I had it put in the other, even though that's the 9/40 frame, for consistency, so I would imagine you'd be fine with it.

    I have an extended lone wolf release on my 17. I spent about 5 minutes rounding it off and removing the texture. I am enjoying it so far. I have larger hands and so the pad of my thumb extends further out and now actuating the mag release is a split second faster without having to bend my thumb in to press it.

    I'll stick with the $5 I spent on the Glock factory extended mag release and take the 5 minutes to sand the edges.
     
  10. Did you end up ordering it from Casey?

    No, I didn't see your reply until after I bought it. I found it on Amazon. About the same price, give or take a few cents.

    I have an OEM glock extended magazine release. Didn't change a single thing about it, love it as is. I also got the extended slide stop lever, great addition as well.

    I just got the factory slide and mag releases. Left the mag release as is for now, but can see that I likely will round the edges with some sandpaper in the future.
