I prefer them.
It's a true ambidextrous design, easy muscle memory (just takes a few range trips). Index finger operation is most efficient and doesn't require a wrist cant to drop a mag and reload... I can reengage a target more quickly with this mag release design. Since I shoot both right and left handed, the majority of my handguns are HKs.
Like many, I like them. I have a USP9SD and VP9. After shooting them, I would love to see other gun manufacturers offer it as an option.
When I first held it, I was skeptical. But after using it, I was stunned how something like a paddle magazine release could seem so easy and logical, and wondered why it was an exception on firearms, rather than the norm. I am fine with anything but a heel mag release and won't grumble about button releases, but I do like the paddles!
Another vote for liking them!
I prefer the paddle release, so easy to use!
Hate them with a passion. For me they are more awkward and slower. Its better than having ambi buttons and i understand it for something issued at the unit level, but im right handed and buttons are the easiest and fastest way to go. Ive also never acidentally engaged a mag release.
I actually do have to shift my grip on most models with a paddle releaseto use them also. The only paddle release ive been able to use with trigger fingerwithout a ton of effort . is on the ppq since its a little longer.
Yeah....there are certainly those that don't like them. Fortunately, I've never released a mag unintentionally with mine.
I think HK’s paddle mag release system is superb. I only wish more manufacturers offered this set-up.
I have four HK's with the paddle release. Now every time I am looking for a new toy the first thing I look for are paddles... I really like them...
I'm not a fan. I have been pushing magazine release buttons for over 30 years. It is not normal, intuitive, or instinctive to me.
I like them. I have 2 HK pistols with them and as others have stated, I wished other makers would offer them.

Origin is GERMAN GUNS? Must be good...CHERMAN DESIGN
I like them.
I haven't used them on an HK but have on my Waltherp99 and pps.Really like the paddle release , just have to work with them to get used to them.
I like them. Especially the slightly larger(as opposed to the HK USP) ones featured on the HK P30 and HK45. Very easy to use, I find myself preferring them to the 'button' style releases.
I am back up to two HK's now, I prefer their paddle release, not that I have a problem with the Glock button release just prefer using my trigger finger with the paddles. I had a Walther P99 a long time ago and did not care for the longer release. The paddle on the P30/VP9 is about the perfect size, but no problem with the smaller USP/P2000 paddles.
i am new to them as I just obtained a Walther p99 AS a few weeks ago. I so far in dry fire practice find the best way for me to manipulate is trigger finger sweep of the paddle as the support hand will be reaching for the next mag. So far I like them. It has never been a determining factor for me as to buy or no buy because of the mag release. I'm adaptable. My Scorpian has a push forward mag release on the trigger guard. Now that one is taking a little extra practice.
I prefer the HK paddle release, it works with both left or right hands or with your trigger finger
I love them, I also wish they were the industry standard. I would like it if a way could be found to convert button to paddle release.
I like the HK mag release style.
