    hello everyone. i have ordered Blackhawk CQC holster for IDPA matches (it hasn't arrived yet). I'm kinna worried that my G17 with extended mag release wont fit?? has anybody had an issue with with their G17 not fitting holster because of the mag extended release?

    i never had an issue with my mag release as I use CRSpeed holster for USPSA. im kinna worried that I wont be able to use the new Blackhawk CQC holster that I've purchased online (will surely findout when it arrives) :sad: :sad:

    thank you kindly for you advice/comments

    I use a CQC for my G19 and G17 on a daily basis. Never had a problem with either one. I milled my release down a bit because if I set it on a flat surface and push, the mag will pop out. All I did was mill a bit off and she was good to go.

    Don't worry about it. Blackhawk! does their homework on these guns. Enjoy! Mike

    I have several Bianchi holsters and a Glock 21.
    The 21 has the large magazine release.
    I have no trouble with it.

    when you say "large"... do you mean extended?
    how about Blackhawk CQC serpa holter, have you encountered any issue/problem with your G21 because of extended mag release button?

    After I installed the extended mag cactch on my G20, I was forced to perform a "30-second Gerber notch job" on my C-TAC.

    I am not experienced with your particular gun/holster combo, but I looked at some pictures on the interwebs and I think it may be close either way.

    TRUE indeed!!:banana:

    I just got my CQC Serpa holster and immediately fitted my G17.
    So happy that my extended mag release touched 'nothing' on the holster.

    Thank kindly EVERYONE for your comments and reply.
