Extended Mag Release

Have a G19 and G23, both Gen3, which I use for EDC.. What is the best extended mag release made for these pistols and where can I buy them? Thx for the help.

I have both the Glock factory extended release, and the Vickers Tactical on several Glocks. The Glock release is longer, and therefore easier to reach, but if you lay the gun on it's side on a hard flat surface and press on the frame, the button sticks out so far it will release the mag. The Vickers is slightly shorter and a bit less sharp-edged (more user-friendly), but still easier/quicker to use than stock release, so I prefer it on my carry guns.
...The second most dangerous thing to do is Turning Your Life Around. Going by local news reports, if you start Turning Your Life Around, you will inexplicably wind up face down in a convenience store parking lot at 0300 with a bag of somebody else's money in your hand, a chalk outline, and half a magazine's worth of the taxpayers' bullets in your ass. -- Tamara K.
