    Go to Brownells' wesbite and look for the Vickers Gen4 extended release.

    Just a reminder, if it's a carry gun some holsters don't accommodate the longer mag releases and you can end up with a mag bouncing across the floor when you least expect it. That sound of a full mag hitting a tile floor will be hard to forget.

    Glock 19 extended Mag Release.

    Thanks for the heads up. Hadn't thought about that. It is my carry gun so that kinda changes things.

    Good point on the holster. You may have to modify it to accommodate the new mag release.. I have a 3rd Gen G26 with a extended mag release I would bump into things occasionally and it would pop the mag loose.

    Just me, but I like the stock mag release for a carry piece... Easily depressed, and sits perfectly for easy access... NC Bullseye makes a great point IMO..


    Oops!, I just realized that if your Glock 19 isn't the Gen 4 G19, you might have a good point.. My G19 is the Gen 4 and the new mag release is just right IMO...

    Good points made about the dangers of extended mag releases.

    It should also be noted that a long release could eject the mag when you pick the gun up off your bedside stand in the dark. By pushing downward on the gun the mag button could be inadvertently pressed. I've seen this happen in matches a few times.

    The Gen 4's mag release button seems fine. As for the Gen 3's, I prefer the one shown below. It's ergonomically correct, not too long or too short. It allows your thumb to slide across the face of the release, and works with every holster I've tried thus far.

    Is yours a Gen 3? I put the Vickers mag release on all my Gen 3s and love it. Way easier to operate but specifically designed to be just short enough to not release if you press down on the pistol while sitting on a table or night stand. The factory extended are too long and the standard is too short. The Vickers is right in the sweet spot in between them. My carry G19 has one and I've never had a problem with an accidental mag release.

    Glock makes an extended release that doesn't protrude as much as the after market ones I've seen, but has easier access than the stock release. As others have said, be vewy vewy careful with your EDC. You might discover that the one in the chamber is all you've got as the mag clatters onto the floor.

    I had them on a couple of my glocks and due to either the mag dropping out or depending on what holster I was wearing ,it digging into my side, I took them off and went back to factory releases

    One time when competing in an IDPA stage, the pistol had to be placed in a box and the lid closed. When the start buzzer went off and I retrieved my Glock from the box, first shot- bang, second shot-click!
    Laying the pistol down on it's left side with the extended mag release facing down, it had partially ejected the mag and it had not fed a round in the chamber for the next shot.

    When I got home I removed the extended mag release and put a regular one back in.

    Needless to say it was a game and had cost me some extra time but what would it have cost me if that had happened in a defensive situation? None of my handguns have them now.
