    Not that I know of. The only retrofit ambi mag release I've seen for a handgun was for a 1911.

    While I hate the extended mag release, I used my middle finger as well.

    The SIGs have changeable mag releases if I'm not mistaken.

    That's insane...I'm only really familiar with Beretta M9s and SIGs (and the 1911 to an extent), both former/current duty handguns...but all have ambi-switchable mag releases. I figured that was standard for any auto pisto...I can't imagine that a modern arms maker like Glock didn't consider this an essential feature from the design inception.

    Be careful when you fire the Glock w/ the left hand that you don't Whoops! pop the magazine out inadvertantly.
    It has happened to me a couple of times when I was "weak hand shooting" the Glock.
    Just something to watch out for and be mindful of.

    Middle finger hits the mag release for me too. On all my semi autos, even the ambi HK. .

    I am still not an incredibly accomplished weak hand shooter though I can get them in the ballpark.
    Possibly an explanation for me depressing the Glock mag release especially on the G36.

    Took the Wife to the range today, she shot the G23 and had problems with it rubbing on her middle finger. She is now not inclined to a G23 and may try the G19 due to recoil. I also had her look at other guns while there. So we will keep on lookiong for a new gun for her concentrating on ones that are left friendly.

    Initially she shot the XD and the G23 on the same day. She liked the Glock better I kinda liked the XD but didn't get much time with it. She said the Glock had less recoil but now she says the Glock irritates here middle finger. Over the next couple of months we will shoot several and narrow it down. We plan to get new guns for Xmas.
