    Yep. GLOCK seems to be coming out with a G17MB (ambi mag release).

    Yep,I hurriedly bought three new full-cap 17 mags. at the gunshow last week and when I got home I saw the cut out on the front of these mags and wondered what was this?? Then I looked in several forums here and found out about the ambi-cut mags.Looks like I got an added bonus.tom.:banana:

    Would be nice if there was a OEM modification to existing guns for that.

    Nope! It will never happen! Glock doesn't make enough money doing that. They want you to buy the new version. Well us leftys are screwed again.:dunno:

    I'm right handed and I have no problems using my middle finger to hit the mag release when I shoot left handed.

    And here. I hate ambidextrous magazine releases. If they offer them in the U.S. I hope they're optional.
