Anyone with average- to small hands now can easily perform magazine changes without shifting their firing grip on the weapon. The VT GMR-001 is easy to install, and made of the same tough polymer as the GLOCK factory part. The extended catch is just perfectnot too short, not too long, i.e. the magazine will not accidentally release if pistol is laid on a hard surface. Perfect with use of back strap mounted lasers. For Gen1, Gen2 and Gen3 pistols only. Not for use with Gen4 pistols.

Works as should. Its rounded. The one to get IMO
The Vickers Mag Release is a great improvement on the OEM release. Better shape, nice rounded edges and extends far enough for easy, fast and sure releases. Also it's designed so it does not stick out far enough to accidentally release the magazine if you lay the gun down on its left side.
Simple and to the point. Nothing flashy, just a slight extension beyond the factory length. Easy to install. See the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J4QBfibJa8
The product itself is perfectly made, rounded edges ensure you don't manage to cut your self during intense reloading drills. My only con with the product is not the product itself but my short thumbs. In other words if you have a difficult time reaching the stock release without shifting grip, this product is NOT for you. Otherwise get it!
Part works great!
The stock release button was too short and caused finger cuts when trying to do repetitive reloads. The vickers doesn't appear to be much different but turns out to be just right for my hands. I don't need to reposition the gun for quick reloads anymore. Installation took just a few minutes. I'm very happy with the Vicker tactical extended magazine release.
This release is an excellent fit. Does not protrude to the point of impacting the support hand palm during manipulations/firing yet is of ample length to provide a mag drop without having to adjust the positioning of the hands.
