ZEV Magazine Release for 4th and 5th Gen Small Frame Glocks

4 Reviews

The Zev Technologies Generation 4 and 5 Magazine release for the Glock® is constructed from Billet 6061 Aluminum and Mil Spec hard anodized Black.

It has a Honeycomb non-slip face for a more tactile engagement surface.

The contact point on the mag release face is ergonomically angled to the rear to allow ease of manipulation in performing magazine changes

The Mag Release takes minutes to install with the use of needle nose pliers and a long shaft, slim, flat head screwdriver.

NOTE: It is easiest to remove and replace the factory Glock® Mag-release Catch Spring for the magazine release installation. Then installing it back in its pin position after you remove the factory unit and replace it with the ZEV&trade component.

ZEV Parts always incorporate design, feel and performance.

Better than oem mag release

At first it was stiff but after I put a few rounds it broken in nicely. I put it on my glock 19 gen 5 I would recommend it!

Not for lefties

If you plan to use this in the left handed config, be prepared for this to eat your mags. In order to seat properly the mag release you’ll need to grind the leading edge.

Looks and feels great ( Glock 19 gen 5 mos might require a little mod to fit though )

I am giving this 4 stars because I had to modify it a little but it was worth the effort. I have a Glock 19 gen 5 mos and installed a Zev backplate and mag release. Zev aftermarket Glock parts look awesome and give your pistol a little attitude. I was a little irritated at first cause it didn t fit mine correctly right out of the package. Zev has awesome customer service and they sent me another one out pretty fast. Unfortunately, this one had the same issue. The curve in the release was a little too thick. I got my dremel out and took a little bit out and after a few mins had it working great. It wasn t a big deal and if you have a little patience it is worth the effort because it looks so awesome. It could be my gen 5 mos was a little out of spec or maybe the gen 5 mos frame is a little different than the gen 4 or 5 regular frames. Regardless, I am happy with the mag release and it looks and feels great.

Eats your mags

Looks cool, and it works, but it will carve gouges into the sides of your magazines.
