    I have been thinking about getting this for my Glocks and wondering every body's input on them, I searched and only found one thread on it. This is the one http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=1008. I am afraid to do permanent mods to my Glocks. It looks similar to the new Glock Gen 4 mag catch, though I know Lone Wolf had this a lot longer. Any opinions, comments?

    I use them on my duty Glocks, they are a huge improvement but I still find myself changing my grip to release the mags and figure the LWD mad catch looks a better improvement

    I've never tried the one from LWD. I do like the one on the 4th Gen Glocks though.

    I found that it was great for making the mag catch easier to reach. But I also repeatedly found the gun with the mag ready to fall out because it had been depressed unintentionally while in a pack or IWB holster. Would not hesitate to reinstall it on my night stand gun though.

    I have yet to have a problem with the stock part. YMMV.

    IMO the stock mag catch sucks and is just about useless, it's way to small and is hard to manipulate with out moving your grip, which I still have to do with the vickers and other extended mag catch's. I feel this is probably Glock's biggest down fall(IMO)

    I have been using them since 2005 or 2006. I install them on all my glocks. HUGH improvement. Infact the first things I get from people that shhot my glocks(and have shot stock glocks) is how much better the grips feel(strippling) and how much my mag release was an improvement over stock. I have never had an unintentional mag release from IWB. Maybe its because I use kydex.

    Precisely Bill. Takes practice whichever you use.

    I had Rock Your Glock install the Suretouch mag release on all of my Glocks, Turn around time is a couple of days and they look and feel solid! Just send them your lower and 1 mag and they do the rest...

    I use extended mag releases only on competition guns, never on carry guns. An accidental bump in the holster can release the mag, and it won't fit well in some holsters. I've seen some holsters that push on the Glock extended release.

    Having learned to shoot pistols with a 1911, I've learned to shift my grip to release the mag. It's a small, easily learned movement, and not a problem at all.

    That's not going to work. Would be like fitting 5 pounds of crap in a 3 pound bag.

    It looks just like the Lone Wolf one. Do you use it on IWB carry? Any problems with unintentional releasing or partial releasing?
    Thanks Guys for the responses

    Well, the LW IS extended, but is more contoured than others, and may not have their problems. If you shoot in competition, it would not be allowed in some divisions (like USPSA Production).
