    Has anybody tried the Magloc which is manufactured by Smartlock? I got to try it when we went shooting when I went home a few weeks ago. My friends' Glock 17 and 34 had those, and it's basically a thumbrest which supposedly prevents muzzle flip.

    It kinda felt weird at first, and I found it quite difficult to rack the slide.

    Didn't know that it was made in Canada (in Richmond, BC), until I saw it on my friends' guns.

    I would say yes. My shot recovery was faster both with the Glock 17 and 34. As for the manufacturer's claim of 70%, I'm skeptical. A good 40% would be a safe answer, IMHO.

    The only downside as previously mentioned is that it is quite hard to rack the slide with the Magloc on. But I believe with constant use of the system, you would be able to adjust to it.
