    Has anyone installed an Extended Magazine Release for a Glock 27? I am looking in Brownells and can't decide which one to get. My choices are as follows,

    T.H.E. ACCESSORIES --- GLOCK COMPETITION MAG RELEASE
    J P ENTERPRISES --- GLOCK EXTENDED MAG RELEASE
    ARO-TEK --- GLOCK EXTENDED MAG RELEASE

    The only thing that I don't like about the ARO-TEK mag release is that it is made entirely of metal, unlike the other two.
    What are your suggestions?

    If you plan to carry your G27 in an IWB holster, I highly advise against an extended magazine release. I tried the factory one, and found that it dug into my skin, even if wearing a shirt tucked into my pants. It protruded a bit too far.

    I think extended magazine releases should be used only on "game guns" and not carry weapons. I don't even like them on my game guns.

    If you just have to have one, then I suggest T.H.E. Accessories. I also suggest you make sure your magazine is seated every time you draw your G27.

    Relieving the frame around the mag button is a differnt way to achieve the same result and is much more suitable for a carry gun.

    Hey Matt,
    That relieved mag button looks fantastic - too bad I couldn't do that on my production G34, as it constitutes an external mod. Great idea for an open class racegun thou!

    For a race gun I use the THE big button. I only use the relieved frame for carry as it does not stick out like a larger button.

    Hi, Matt. I was wondering how you relieved the frame portion around the magazine release. Can I do the same using a dremel and/or hair drier and/or soldering tool? (I have very limited resources :)) Also (sorry, off thread), with your race guns, do you cut a coil or two from your firing pin safety spring to improve trigger feel? Thanks a lot.
