Magazine Release 9mm Compact Poly

Postby th3ug1y0n3 » Sun Aug 14, 2011 1:33 am

I must have a short thumb. When I try to release the mag I have to slightly rotate the pistol in my hands in order for my thumb to release. Any suggestion on how to impove this? Will the extended oval mag release help or can I rotate the mag release to the other side so that i can so that i can use my index finger or trigger finger to release it?

Thumb is normal. I find this to be common with compacts in general (Glock, Jericho, etc.).

You can invert the release, search the forum for the full disassembly pdf. There is a spring and a pin inside of the mag release button, careful you don't lose em if you attempt it.

Thanks for the info. I am familiar with the process to invert the release, just wasn't sure if there might be other options. I am wondering if there are any disadvantages from inverting them? I would think so but just thowing the question out. Thanks again for the info.

Don't know of any other options. And it's just a matter of preference, can't see any disadvantages besides one way being less effective for a given person than the other.
