    Thanks SJ 40, I'll have to look at my barrel and see if it has the markings.
    I would guess not since it is still good in the lug area.

    Thank you Mr. Graham it arrived today and installation was a breeze, I actually youtubed Glock slide lock install and took it from there. Have not tested it out yet but I'm sure I won't be disappointed and like that its easier to take down because it sticks out a tad more than the stock one. Thanks Again Mr. Graham. and much success in the future

    I will be ordering one tomorrow (some kind of online ordering would really help here). I am excited to try one out.

    I have the old style in all my Glocks and one Gen 4 G17 has fired 46,600 rounds with Zero Issues of any kind.

    Sent both a PM and email to Mr. Graham.

    I contacted him last year to get one but he had suspended selling them due to changes in Glock barrels. I'm glad to see he has revised them so that they don't cause problem with newer Glock barrels and has begun selling them again.

    I got mine in the mail and installed last week. I really like the tabs in lieu of serrations on the lock. I look forward to testing it out.

    Got an email back from Mr. Graham with instructions on how to order and sent him my order for two on Monday 6/10. Anxiously awaiting them to see how much they will help my groups sizes.

    Would you please post some close-ups of the tabs on the current-one ?
    I love the one on the old slide stop, I hope they are not changed...

    The photo, taken with cell, isn't great quality, but you can see the difference between the photos on the first page :dunno:

    Fast delivery! I sent a money order out on Saturday and got the part today (Friday). And I like this new style versus the stock design. It looks great and is easier to grip.

    Can't wait to try it out, thanks!

    freshila and thetoastmaster, thank you for the pictures!
    I will second SJ40 and will say that I like the one with the serrations better - the grip on it is awesome, no matter if you have dirty or wet gun, hands... It is important to me this part to stick slightly more out than the OEM G-part, but this is me...
    Anyway, I'm glad Mr Graham is manufacturing those again!

    So I have 3 of the older production ones before he stopped making them. So the new ones are better?

    Only if your intended Glock has a dotted pentagon barrel,otherwise there is no need for a new production MGSL. Seems as the dotted pentagon barrel marking was a indication of a a hardness change.
    Which lead to reports of chipping barrel lugs with the old MGSL,so the change. SJ 40
