    I agree and if you had continued past my initial post you would have seen
    that the problem is with me and not the gun.

    Humorous clip though.

    Thanks for the suggestion Gaz.
    I'm sure that I'll be able to get this corrected with all of the great
    ideas that have been posted so far.
    I enjoy shooting the 23 a lot and it is extremely accurate so I have not intention
    of selling it.

He showed me a you tube video of the mod. It looks like a way to get the same results as an extended release without the issues MT explained. He did not like the idea of an extended release. But it's a permanent alteration he didn't mind. He also had me remove the finger grooves and stipple the grip.
    Just another idea.

    Breaking the grip isn't the end of the world with enough practice you'll move through the reload without issue. If it still bothers you though, the Gen4 would be an alternative solution - the Mag Catch can be reversed and worked with the trigger finger instead of the thumb.

    Thanks for the positive input and as a matter of fact I just picked up a Gen 4 G26 yesterday.
    Took it to the range and no problems with the larger mag release button.

    I will make an effort to work with my G23 though since it is extremely accurate, fun to shoot
    and the Trijicon night sights are the best.
