    dose glocks have a left thumb mag release? me and my brother was having a debate on recovery time on his gl 21 and my gl20 (one handed btw lol) so we shot three mags consecutively at 20yrds to see which had the best but we couldn't really determine a winner do to both of us shot with almost same accuracy but he was able to change his faster with his thumb right there and me having to pull my thumb over the back side of the gun o hit the button then use right hand to load new mag i still had like half a mag win he finished firing.....and had to let him claim the win but i would like a reach if they have a left thumb release.
     
  2. You can switch the mag release lever to the other side, instructions are in your Glock instruction manual, or on YouTube. Don't know if someone sells an accessory to make a Glock have a magazine release on both sides of the grip at the same time, maybe someone else on the forum knows.

    I'm a lefty but with an older Gen 2 G19 and use my middle finger on strong hand to activate magazine release. Not sure if that's "the best" method but works for me. Would like to know how other lefties execute that move.

    I'm a lefty :) I shoot with either hand. But I would say my left is my strong side!

    Being left handed sucks. No lie. I wish Glock would make a fully ambidextrous model.

    I'm left handed and I've always used my left middle finger to drop my magazines. Even with a Gen4 mag release it's muscle memory and training for me to always use my left middle finger to drop the mag. It's actually a good technique if you ask me. It keeps your trigger finger off the trigger while doing a reload and naturally twists your hand to angle the pistol for your reload. Try it a few times and see if you like it. You can even use your left index finger if the middle is too uncomfortable.

    A southpaw's motto: Adapt, train, dominate.

    They will never make a Gen4 SF. The Gen4 IS already an SF.
