Give Your Glock an Edge with Tyrant Designs Steel Extended Magazine Release

It’s not uncommon for the factory controls on a gun to be low-profile, slick, or challenging to operate due to their design. That’s just one reason aftermarket products are such a fantastic solution for gun owners. A gunsmith is rarely needed, and in no time at all the controls are upgraded to be much easier to use. The Tyrant Designs Steel Extended Magazine Release was designed to give Glock owners an edge in manipulating the mag release on their factory guns.

Tyrant Designs provided the following information regarding their Extended Magazine Release:

Our Glock 43x Extended Magazine Release / Glock 48 Extended Magazine Release is CNC Machined from aerospace grade aluminum and merges flawlessly with the ergonomics and styling of your G43x/48 handgun. In addition to functioning exactly like an OEM release, the profile of our Glock 43x and 48 Extended Mag Release is slightly raised with chamfered edges which helps ensure that you eject your Glock 43x or 48 magazine quickly and with ease!

Fit, finish and overall quality is nothing but the best on our Glock 43x magazine catch / Glock 48 magazine catch. Install happens in seconds and the chevron pattern adds just the perfect amount of texture to release your Glock magazine!

According to the manufacturer, no tools are necessary to install this magazine release. It’s compatible with the Glock 43X and Glock 48, but not with the Glock 43. The Tyrant Designs Extended Magazine Release has chamfered edges and a raised chevron pattern so it’s simple to manipulate. It’s important to be able to manipulate the controls on your gun without adjusting your grip, and adding this magazine release could make all the difference since there is a greater surface area to touch. Having greater, smoother control of your gun is always good, and doing so with extended controls is a smart move.
