Glock Factory Extended Slide Stop Lever
Ratings & Reviews
Functional, but caused problems based on my handgun grip and hand size
-additional length makes manipulation of slide release easier
-makes the slide release pin incredibly difficult to remove compared to the factory slide release
-makes it easy to unintentionally hold the slide release in the downward position, causing the slide not to lock back upon firing the final round
I didn't purchase this out of necessity. I really just wanted to try it out for fun.
Overall I would say this is a good product, but for me personally it just doesn't fit the bill. With my Glock 19, when I'm using the proper grip, the pad of my dominant hand thumb contacts the frame right behind the factory slide release. But, when I put this extended version on, my thumb naturally falls onto the slide stop and can potentially hold it down instead of letting it move freely. It's an issue that could be trained around by modifying my grip, but I'd rather the problem not exist in the first place.
Great value for the money.
Very easy installation and a great deal on the price. Wish I had bought one of these earlier.
Awesome upgrade, plus a helpful tip for 20/29 owners
Love these slide stop levers. Have them on all my glocks and will continue to buy them in the future. Also, if you have a 20 or 29 gen 4. You need the 20sf/29sf slide stop lever. The regular 20/29 does not function properly on the gen 4 models (found out myself)
I found the stock one just too small, short, and wussy. Thought this would be much better. It is better, no question about it. But if you are expecting some sort of slide release that hangs out there with much larger and robust construction, this ain’t it. It is slightly extended and does work a bit better, that’s it. It was not designed to be more, I’m sure. Simple, low profile, works, but not robust or sexy in any way.

Installed on my G 21. Big difference. Easy upgrade. No problem with Lenny's video. Thank you.
Great Upgrade for Slide Stop

Fits perfectly, great upgrade from the slim narrow stock slide stop lever!
