Tear Drop Extended Magazine Release
Ratings & Reviews
Easy to install, somewhat wider and significantly higher than the OEM mag release. Installed it on my G17 Gen4 with a medium backstrap. Before installing this extended release I had to break my grip to actuate the mag release (I grip the gun very high close to the bore axis). With this product, I don't need to do so. Mental note: add loctite to the two screws in case they get loose. So far it is quite sturdy. As usual, Glockstore delivers super-fast, thanks.
Installed on G19X and G17 Gen4. Easy to install. The extension makes releasing the magazine easier, especially on 19X. With this extension I am able to release magazine with my thumb without having to change my grip. Great addition and also does not interfere with my holster.
Thanks Glock store.
No More Tears With This Teardrop!
A great button for quick mag changes especially for those of us with large hands that have trouble pushing the spindly factory release. This is a must have accessory for any Glock!
Awesome little addon
This is a great product. Its a polymer Mag Release that's been drilled to take the Aluminum Extension. I was a little worried about that, but it fits great, looks great, and haven't had issues yet. If the tab does come undone, you still have the standard polymer button below so it will continue to work.
Perfect on my G34
Very happy with mine. Magazine lock-up is tight and positive & extension fits my thumb perfectly. There is no slop whatsoever when the mag is inserted; fit and finish are superb. The reason I purchased mine was because I wanted to release the mag without shifting my grip and this was perfect for my mid-to-large size hands and thick fingers. I'd buy another if GS released one with aggressive checkering.
Check hole alignment first!
I hate to give it three stars, but I had two problems.
First, the button was drilled of center, so when the button was pressed, it hit the frame, not releasing the magazine. Since it wasn’t a huge deal, I filed it down on the underside for an acceptable fit. This brings about the second issue, after taking the button off three times, I could feel that one of the screws didn’t have as tight a grip.
Hopefully it holds!
To be fair, I didn’t contact the Glock store about this, but I’m sure they would have taken care of it.
A must have
I just received my order and immediately installed the extended mag release on my Glock 19. It literally took less than 10 minutes! I must say I was somewhat skeptical until I tried it. This extended mag release is excellent! I’ve carried this firearm for 4 years and for the first time I can do a mag swap with ease. Great addition to my favorite cherry weapon. I highly recommend it.
If you are even considering it, just buy it.
One thing I hated about the Glock was the ergonomics of the magazine release. It drove me nuts because I don’t want to adjust my grip in a life and death situation. I got a cheaper extended release and it sucked. So I bought this teardrop model. I have to admit the overall quality was superior to the factor and other extended release I got. The overall function is perfect. I honesty couldn’t have asked for a better ergonomic fix to the factory release. I can’t speak to the holster release aspect. I use it purely as my tactical night gun. I keep it out next to my when I’m home, so it never goes in a holster. I have other guns for that. I highly recommend this part. Huge improvement to my overall satisfaction with the Glock 19.
Great product. Works well.
Be careful. It can be a problem with some holsters. I have a G26 with a N82 Revnant IWB holster. If I lean back in a chair just right it can release the magazine.
