Ordered one, reordered two more
Mark B. - 28th January 2014
I have a medium size hand and double stack mags challenge my ability to reach mag and slide releases. I ordered this slide release for my cc XD40. I thought it looked fragile being so thin but I was wrong.
It is long so that I can easily reach it and provides increased leverage to release the slide easily. The serrations are sharp enough that your thumb has a good grip on a thin lever.
It took me about 90 seconds to install. It took me longer to grab my tools then to actually replace the part. Watching a video or step by step pictures clarifies what you need to do.
I was so confident and pleased with this improved part I just ordered two more for my XD9 and XD45. I highly recommend this lever with regard to quality of build, design, and effectiveness.

What a nice addition to my XDs...I can now release the slide with ease and speed. Especially if my support hand is out of commission. Thanks PistolGear for having this product.
The definitive improved slide release

Well worth it.
It broke but they quickly replaced it.

I installed this without difficulty and it worked great for about 2,000 rounds. Then one day while shooting the slide kept locking back even with rounds in the mag. Taking it apart, I found that this part had broken in two and was loose within the gun causing the slide to lock. I contacted Pistol Gear and without hesitation or question they sent me a new one immediately. So it broke but their service in immediately replacing it was excellent! I can't complain much. I hope the new one holds out! [PG NOTE: The product currently shipping has some changes over the GEN1 release that broke on you. Breakage is few and far between. Thanks for working with us. ]

Part shipped fast and came as advertised. Fit and function is great installed in less than 5 min. For me when I grip the pistol my thumb always wanted to land on the original release,so when the mag would go dry the slide would not always lock back.
Problem solved! Thanks guys.
Better than OEMClick to review this product

Its better than the OEM part. The link to the directions worked great. In full disclosure, I've never owned a gun before and have never tried to do anything to it yet. It was straight forward and took 4-5 minutes being careful. I really enjoy the form of the new part. The function is as advertised, but the form of it is where it stands out. The extra leverage is only a marginal improvement to release the slide, but I think it was worth it.
