Reverse Magazine Release -- Fail

No, I don't mean I couldn't reverse it, it just didn't work out for me. After reversing my G26, I just couldn't release a magazine with my left thumb.

I'm not sure if it's all the years using my left trigger finger, the arthritis in my left thumb, or my thumbs are too short.

I wound up putting it back the way it was, no problem releasing with my left trigger finger.

Of course, I left the G17 and G21 as is.

I won't stress it. The Glocks are very easy to work with my trigger finger.

And of course, no safety to worry about.

I have heard a couple of other guys suggesting they tried the left side magazine release and went back to the original configuration. It seems awkward to me but I readily admit alot of things seem to be prejudiced toward us right handed folks.

I still think it's a great idea, and it was pretty easy to swap.

It just didn't work out for me.

I myself think using the trigger finger is more efficient than the thumb any way. Figured the mag catch location is one of the few things designed wrong.
Having to shift grip to do mag changes makes no sense. While many will call it wrong when shooting right handed as my left hand support thumb moves past the mag release toward my reload I hit the release without stopping. Keeps my grip the same no shift slip and if it causes me to lose a tenth of a second or two on a reload speed so what. Seems a much more efficient way to go at least for me
