I’ve used several versions in the past and this is by far the best so far. Well thought out design. Thanks

Good for those with smaller hands

Still have to break my grip slightly but a much easier reach with this extended mag release button. The angle helps blend the button towards the grip and away from my support hand. A little pricey but effective.

My right hand is crippled with arthritis and this mag release extension allows me a reasonable shot at releasing a magazine without shifting my grip on my Staccato P. Worth the money.

Extended Link Mag Release Button, Excellent
Written by Huey on Sep 6th 2023

I was searching everywhere for a mag release that had a pinch of 'offset' for my 2011 pistol. I tried buttons and such only to realize when gripping the pistol I would, on occasion dump the mag. This release button lies low enough not to allow that scenario to happen. I am now able to reach the button without having to dramatically shift my grip. Two thumbs up on the little unit!

Worked perfectly. Installed it on my MPA/DS9. Highly recommend for looks and function. Shipping was good.

Easier and faster reloads
Written by Delfino on Jan 27th 2023

This product is a game changer. Simple, genius design with the angled extension improved my reload speeds by .1-.2 secs. Mainly because I no longer have to re-grip the gun. In reality, it may save seconds on a stage as sometimes with re-gripping, your index point is affected for the remaining rounds in the loaded mag. I highly recommend this product!

Excellent Mag Release for smaller hands
Written by Black Flag, LLC on Jun 22nd 2022

I do not have very big hands and this makes combat reloads on my BUL SAS II TAC 4.25 COMP soooooo much easier. Saves me .75 seconds!

Was excited to order but unfortunately on my ria 1911 it's not a direct bolt on part , it will need some modification.

Gold extended link Mag release button
Written by Christian Morales on Aug 31st 2020

Great product! Fit my upper palm really well without any accidental Mag release, using a Bul Armory stainless grip, highly recommended product for anybody out there on the same grip or of any I assume. I wished their 2 set of screws that come along will be more longer thanks.

Installed on Atlas Titan. This mag button is by far the best button I have installed on my gun. No accidental mag drops. Doesn’t touch the grip. Simple and functional.

Perfect size for my thumb. Easy positioning. Great design and strong material. Decreased mag change time in competition. Perfect for my hands, so bought 2 more to back up my back up.

Best Mag Button
Written by Andrew Knight on Apr 16th 2020

I have tried several mag release extenders for the 2011 platform and the Hayes Custom is the certainly the best. In my opinion, the deciding factor is sloping edge as it allows for easy thumb contact without breaking the grip while not digging into the support hand while firing. Never have any accidental mag releases while gripping or drawing/holstering. Another nice thing is that there is no set direction so while you need to account for a slight rotation while tightening, you can fully customize alignment which is handy for fitting into holsters or adjusting for your specific grip to avoid support hand contact. Highly recommended!

Perfect size
Written by Matthew L Turner on Nov 12th 2019

This extended mag release was the perfect size for me. I have large hands that still needed a very slight reach on my Honcho. Ordered this extended mag release to meet that need. It gives you that extra little reach without being in the way to accidently bumped during competition, causing the mag to land on the ground during the course of fire. I would highly recommend.
