    I googled every combination I could think of and I could not find anything on this subject. Let me first state that I would not attempt this myself, but if a reputable gunsmith could do this I would give it a go.

    I fell in love with the gen 4 mag release, and would love to add it to my gen 3 19, and 34.

    It's a no go. The Gen 4 mag release can go in either way. The Gen 3 cutouts are different since it only goes in one way.

    I am aware of that, but I was thinking maybe frame modifications could be made. Cold bore told me the spring that holds everything in is in a different location, and won't work. So it appears they considered trying the modification.

    Never thought about that. Guess it depends on how far you're willing to go.

    It would be nice.
