Thumbs up TPX and magazine release!!

So I did not like how small the release was for the TPX and me having short fingers it was hard for me to push the mag release. So i found a small chunck of aluminum and went to it. AFter sawing, sanding, filing, and dremeling i cam up with this!




Sorry about the Tpx it is in the process of being painted

Cool. I don't really have that much of a hard time since I'm a lefty and hit it with my left middle finger. Since I'm the minority though, I bet many can appreciate the need for this.

Even as a righty I can just wrap my middle finger around a bit to tap the release. I just bought the TPX back that I traded to Smiley a while ago and he actually tapped and threaded the end of the stock release then added a screw with a spacer to make it a little longer.

I give the OP the "Patience of a Saint" award though- filing that tiny thing by hand would have been a nightmare for me lol..

I have short fingers and small hands, so i needed something a littler easier to reach! I thought about tapping the stock one but being only plastic i was afraid it would break.

I thought you were going to say because of the wait for his mag-fed kit from RAP4.
