    Switching mag release to other side


    Ok I I've a 3rd gen g23c I shoot right handed and the mag release is on the left I would like to move it to the right side as it is easier for me to depress the mag release with my booger hook than my thumb. I tried removing the mag release and flipping it but that won't work seeing as there is a small hole left side and larger hole right side, is what I want to do possible or do I need to purchase a new frame ( please God no )

    4th gen is able to be swapped. I know this is partially possible due to the new magazines have indentions on both sides of the mags.

    I don't know if only getting these kinds of magazines will work or not. I believe there is also an article on here where someone modified their old style magazine using a dremel tool.
    This is my Glock. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

    Guys - notice that Chief has a 3rd Gen. The 3rd Gen mag release is not swappable as far as I know without modifications to the frame. The topic posted above was about the Gen 4 frame, and the OP had modified 3rd Gen Magazines to work in a 4th Gen gun with the mag release set for Leftys.

    No idea. The ambi-safety ability didn't come out until the Gen 4s. It is one of the things I like about the Gen 4s, as my wife is left handed as my children are as well. Obviously not that big of a deal right now for my kids, but as they get older, it most likely will. Hopefully by then, they'll have the RSA worked out.

    Yeah, it's only about 15-16 years away before they'll be able to own and carry a firearm, so that should give GLOCK time.
