Extended Slide Lock for Gen 5 Glocks
Ratings & Reviews
Just Enough To Make a Difference
A well machined part that's easily worth the purchase price. The extended length doesn't look like much to your eye, but you can really feel the difference it makes during takedown. For me this extended slide lock is a must have.
Makes Take Down Easy and Fast
This is a great part. It makes removing the the slide hassle free and matter of fact, I watched the GS video on Gen5 disassembly/reassembly and put the extended slide lock lever into my 19X without a lot of trouble (I ordered Black to maintain the stock look of the gun). This is a part you'll want to throw on to your next order - worth every penny.
My Glock 19 gen5 review from Markat
I originally intended this part for my takedown because I'm a medium size man with big man's hands this new takedown really does make a difference makes it soo much easier to takedown and as far for the accuracy of my pistol I have not shot it just yet but just by racking the side it does feel slightly more pinned to the frame I would say this adds a good 10% more accuracy to your glock but hey every little bit counts and I've already got other performance parts for my glock like compensated barrel and steel guide rod this just adds more yes I like it and I would recommend it
Gen5 G19 Easy to install and makes take down much easier and possibly add some color.
Awesome. An Absolute Upgrade from Stock
Now this is what a slide lock should feel like. Does not protrude too far out, but the serrations are a 1000 times easier to lock onto making take down of the weapon faster and smoother. Took a little long to get here but totally worth the wait. I will be ordering one for every Glock I have and every one I intend to build or buy in the future.
I love it. It took me a minute to figure out how to get the old one out of my gen 5 but once I did it took 5 minutes to install. Worth the $ for sure. You won’t be disappointed.
A must have
This is a no brained, I am 65 and have Neuropathy In my hand and my hand strength is getting weaker, this make its so easy now, I highly recommend this, it’s effortless to break it down now.
Mod for G26 gen 5 subcompact
I installed one of these in my Gen 3 Glock 17, it works great!!!!! So I ordered this version for my gen 4/5 Glocks. I love it on my G45, and my Gen 4 G21. All were great, except the G26 gen 5 Subcompact. On the subcompact my left thumb contacts the side lock when I'm shooting. Which after a day at the range started to wear a hole in my left thumb.
So with a whetstone I eased the left edge on the side of the slide lock facing me. I rounded it off just enough to get ride of the sharp corner (I left the other 3 corners alone). Much better
Such a small change but it makes all the difference. I’ll be adding these to all my glocks
Very nice is there a video on how to install this?
#1 Most needed upgrade
The left side of the piece was thicker and was too tight to move. I had to take an x-acto knife to shave the opening on my lower larger in order to use this product. After searching the floor for an hour, I found the spring and was able to install it without and problem. It functions fantastically and if the #1 part that should be upgraded on all Glocks.

The GlockStore part is thicker and fills the Slide Lock slot nicely. The machined serrations are grippier than stamped parts, but not overly abrasive. I regret wasting money on the other brand's thin, stamped versions.
must have upgrade
this is a must have upgrade for a gen 5 pistol. with that coil spring it is hard to get a good grip on the factory part. this one works great and feels like it is made extremely well. I've tried other brands but this is the best one out there.
This extended slide lock is just perfect. Just a bit longer on each side and textured so that it's easy to grab, yet not too obtrusive to get in the way. It's perfect. Every Glock should come from the factory with this.
Already have the Extended Slice Lock on my G 19-4 and 34-4. My fingers really appreciate this part when disassembling the Glock.
Looks Sexy and Works Great
My life is easier now every time I want to remove my slide. No more trying several times to get a bite on the perfect yet slightly imperfect stock version. Glock Store Performance and Custom Shop has created a TRULY perfect piece that works for me every time. Thanks to Lenny for making it and the fun FREE youtube videos that taught me how to replace it. As an added bonus I got silver to give my Glock some jewelry. Thanks GS for all you do! I highly recommend.

Absolutely awesome, fantastic upgrade to my Glock 19 Gen 5. This is a must have, necessary compliment to disassemble the weapon/tool. High quality material, perfectly machined, beautifully constructed, essential part. Definitely increase accuracy, on target.
I purchased another extended takedown slide lock from different vendor, which had an angle cut, poor design & the paint chip off immediately upon install, pitiful.
The GS design is far superior, & worth every penny. Totally Satisfied, Highly Recommend Upgrade.
Quality Part! Made in USA also
Pretty Fast Shipping (3 days) for me Living in KY thats like 2,000 miles, I'm very impressed how the Black Slide Lock i ordered matches the same Color as my Gen 5 G17 part it's Matte Black and not glossy, So far i Love the Piece and that its CNC machined, Not stamped steel. Now i can easily Field Strip my Glock anytime im shooting and do a Quick Clean and Lube without messing my fingers and nails up!
