    Got an extended mag release for my G19 I'm the mail today.

    Before

    Not sure how this is going to work with my IWB holster. Looks like it may depress when in the holster. Will update after testing.

    I hope it works out for you. I know a lot of officers had a problem with the extended mag release. It would get bumped while in their cruiser and when they would get out their mag would bounce off the ground. Kind of embarassing.

    Just looking at it, it looks pretty high. I've seen videos where people file them down. May have to do that if drops mags.

    What kind of extended mag release did you go with?

    I wouldn't change a thing to it unless you discover a problem.

    Glock OEM Extended Mag Release from Slingshotusa. It was $5.47
     
  7. Take off 1/8 and round the edges and corners, perfection.

    With the stock release, I was having trouble getting my thumb on it to operate it. No longer an issue with this one.

    I had the same problem with my 19, I added the extended mag release and filed the corners and edges down so I wouldn't cut my fingers when pressing on it. Seems to have done the trick on mine....

    Just curious here, but what holster do you carry in?

    Any issues when holstering, unholstering?

    OK, thanks for the input guys, very helpful.

    Been considering this mod for my '26 and '30, which I carry in Blackhawk Serpas, and been wondering about the release getting activated by contact with the holster.

    Cheers!

    @Nukin:

    Yep, I checked with Casey way back when, he didn't have any of the chrome ones, which is what I would prefer for my '26. I emailed him, and to his credit, he replied right quick! I imagine he'd be an outstanding guy to deal with.

    Cheers!
     
  17. Yea he is great I try to buy all my stuff thru Casey

    Had the firearm on all afternoon yesterday and it never dropped the mag with the extended release. I may still shave it down just a bit.
