    My G21 and G30 has the stock magazine release buttons. They stick out farther than my G17 and G22 mag buttons and I just hate it.
    Other than grinding or cutting them down , Is there any Glock magazine release buttons made that fit in these that only stick out as far as the 17 and 22 ?
    Also has the 21's and 30's always had these longer mag release buttons?

    I am thinking that unless a G17 magazine release can be put into a G21, you're probably gonna be looking at an aftermarket part. I usually install a 21 magazine release in my 17s 'cause I like the positive engagement offered by the extension, but I've never tried it the other way around.

    Try Glockmeister, Lone Wolf? :dunno:

  3. If you don't want to grind or cut your mag release your best bet is to sand or file it.

    I came to the 21 from the 22 and find the extension helpful. the 22's always felt like I had to find it. The 21's is easier and more natural to me. Maybe due to my smaller hands.
