Upgrade Question

Hi

How many of you have upgraded to a extended mag release and extended slide release or both ?. I don't have a particular problem using the current setup but was wondering if you guys thought it was a needed upgrade or not. I was looking at the Vickers mag release which they list for the 17,22 etc. This one would be the correct one for the 37 ? The other part is the Glock extended slide release for 3 pin. Any thoughts or recommendations ?

I can't speak to the magazine release, but your G37 already has the extended slide release (it was required by design).

In my 37, I had Glockmeister--local to me--install the extended mag release that's stock in the 35. It was $3-something. When one has time, the original release button is plenty OK, but when I'm shooting USPSA competition and already nervous and pressured, the longer one is LOTS easier to get my thumb on.

The standard (extended) slidestoplever* works finely in my 37.


* I presume that's what you're talking about. The slidelock is what one pushes down on both sides to allow the slide to be removed. See http://www.lonewolfdist.com/schematicslist.aspx .
