Just installed a RSM extended slide lock lever I got on fleabay for $12.99 with free shipping. Wow! Now, I don't have to struggle to get enough of a grip on the OEM lever that was simply too short for me.

The RSM is the perfect length. Not at all too long. It doesn't touch my holster at all. The ends are angled slightly, making it even easier to grip and push down. It's a real winner for me, and I highly recommend it.

All my glocks get extended locks. As you said, it's just easier to disassemble.
For anyone who is confused.

I couldn't agree more with the OP. I couldn't even feel the slide lock on my 30s. I bought mine from Amazon, sold by King Glock Inc - $12.37. Easy to install and works as advertised.

Hoot. makes one wonder why Glock doesn't supply the longer part in the first place.

I know. I have very average sized fingers, no arthritis, and it take me at least a half dozen attempts to get the OEM one pushed down, with dry fingers. I don't recall it ever being a problem on the 7 or 8 other Glocks I have owned, besides the 30S.

It seems like the 45 acp and 10mm Glocks are the toughest ones to get a grip on. I think Glock uses the same slide lock on all of their guns, and with the larger calibers having wider frames, the lever just seems way too short. I've never had any trouble disassembling my 19 or my 26, but have put extended levers on my 21 and 30s just to be able to grip it enough to take the slide off.

Put an extended one on my first Glock. Then just went and bought the slide removal tool from www.mygtul.com use it on the three Glocks I have left. No tinkering needed.

I have remove my slides one handed with two fingers through the trigger guard as I pull the lock w/ my finger and thumb as I depress the slide by noseing it straight down on my workbench.

I finally did it once on my G36 after several many attempts and then got an extended lock from the Glockstore.

They had to hunt for one as they are unique.

I was there getting a ZEV trigger kit installed, also unique, so they slipped me an extended lock and an extended slide lock lever, also unique, for free.

Recently I went there and got one of their milled extended slide lock for my new G41.

It is just enough longer to make the difference.

It's also slightly thicker and sturdier.

Their pitch for it is that it is more consistent and will improve accuracy.

Maybe so ... I'm too shakey of a one hand shot to tell.

Still, it is a fine little piece part and worthy of consideration.

You're correct - except for the 36 and 42/43 it's the same part on all models
