I will look to see if I have one but, check out tge Kidd releases. They have one that is a low profile style for that purpose (no snagging).

I upgraded (or is that downgraded since I went "back" to an older version) for the same reason using a part from Numrich. It is painted aluminum and fit in the gun perfectly. They also have a stainless one listed for a little more money.

^Yup. Did the same thing myself a couple months back. Got to say it was a huge improvement, IMO.

Magazine Latch, "Blued" (Black)
Magazine Latch, "Stainless Steel" (Raw Aluminum)
Magazine Latch, "In The White" NOTE: This part is, for all intents and purposes, unfinished and will require some work to fit and function properly.

PM sent. You might also consider the Black Dog Machine release, it has a very low profile.

IIRC, the factory "extended" mag releases showed up at the same time as the polymer trigger groups. So 2005ish?

I have a few take offs. Knew I kept these for something. Which would you like? Black or silver? They are metal. Drop me a PM for info.

Thanks guys, PM's sent.

Keep them handy who knows who else needs one.
What kind of a job is it to switch them?
I don't recall if I ever took one out before, if I did it was way too many years ago.

Push out the pin, push the plunger in and the original will drop out.

Push the plunger in, slide the new part in. Line up the holes (remember you have to line up the bolt release, too), and reinsert the pin.

It's a 1-minute job once you've got the trigger group out.

Well ELRODCOD came through and the new release arrived today and I've already installed it. drilled the receiver to accept a cleaning rod while I had it apart. So now I'm good to go.
It works just like I rememberd and now it won't snag on anything and dump the magazine when I least expect it!
Thanks again Elrodcod.

I'm glad it found a new home Gabby. It probably would have remained in my junk box 'till the day I died.
