Quick Glock extended slide release question.

I am looking to buy the Glock OEM extended slide release button for my G26. Does the Gen 3 G26 use the same exact part as the Gen 3 G17, 19, 22, 23, etc....?

Thanks

Yes, BUT the Vickers enhanced slide stop is much better:

Heres the factory stock part from a 34 or 35. Will drop right in and inexpensive. I run these on all 18 of my Glocks

If you are going to change the slide release, you may want to swap out the serrated trigger and bar for the stock smooth G17 trigger. Much nicer for long range sessions.

The Vickers extended mag release is longer than stock 9mm'.40 OEM part, BUT shorter than the 34/35 extended OEM part.

It's just long enough to help release the mag easier, without being so long that the slide may dislodge unintentionally with the Glock extended mag release if the gun is placed port side down on a hard surface.

The 4th gen Vickers is really nice with its bowed/curved outward surface.

I agree the Vickers Ext Mag Release is the bomb. Just right.

The Gen3 smooth triggers work great in the Gen4's...smoother and crisper trigger pull...

I ordered me an OEM extended slide release this evening... I'll be standing by the mailbox. I also ordered a Zombie Outbreak Response Team grip plug...
