Recommendations for what? Whether you should get one, Where to buy One, What brand to get?

I have the Glock OEM Extended slide stop on my G22, I love it! Unfortunately, I do not have extended slide stop levers for the G36, but Glockmiester does.

If you're going to carry IWB I would recommend the OEM SSL. It's lower profile, than lets say a Vickers.

Stick to the stock slide lock. Release the slide by pulling the slide to the rear and you won't need anything extended. A G26 is not the pistol for an extended slide lock.
Mark can you please expand on your reply regarding extended lever on a G26? You got me thinking I'm ccw'ing incorrectly.

The glock pistol was designed with out a "slide release". It has a slide stop to hold the slide back. It was never meant to be used to release the slide. To properly release the slide all you need to do is rack the slide. However, I got the extended slide stop to better enable me to lock the slide back, because I was having problems doing so. The extended slide stop gives me more leverage to do this safely and effectively. It is a preference, if you use the slide stop to release the slide, you won't damage your gun, but you may need to replace the slide stop as it wears down.

Thank you Black! I preach the slingshot method to release the slide as well. But the only reason I opt for the extension on my pistols is because I'm left handed and like you, added leverage.

Hey SG - any chance you can post a pic of the gun w/ said lever? Looks nice. Does it protrude a lot?

It doesn't stick out that much in my opinion.
