We developed an aggressively textured and thoughtfully extended magazine catch/release for your Glock Gen4-5 Small Frame.
Do you like your Gen4-5 factory mag catch, or do you just stick with it since it's already in there? Like many shooters, we've found that the factory catch requires breaking our grip and significantly shifting the gun in our hand in order to actuate the mag catch and release the magazine. This forces us to completely rebuild our grip as we come back on target, requiring more time to accurately squeeze off that next shot. Enter the FACTR Mag Catch...
We moderately extended the minimum protrusion from the grip and ramped it out from there toward the muzzle. The ramped geometry provides a mechanical advantage that allows a more "forward" press. We then added an aggressive texture that provides solid engagement with your opposable digit. The result is a mag catch that gives the shooter improved reach, highly positive grip, and easier actuation for hands and thumbs of all shapes and sizes.

Much more positive feel on finger & looks great, Little hard to get in but fit & finish is top notch
Slightly raised and contoured button face helps with mag changes. Quality design and machining. Great customer service. Git-u-one…
This product worked okay. I am used to using the Hyve extended mag release which I have in most of my guns... The Hyve one has a full extended shelf which comfortable but grippy texture on top. The FACTR one does not work quite as well because the slope down toward the back does not allow for it to be fully depressed from anywhere on the button. You have to reach forward which requires me to move my hand. Also the texture on it (or rather the shape of it) essentially causes you to push into a corner. This is not comfortable and even painful after a lot of use. I was fully expecting to be thrilled with this purchase, but it left me wanting more.
Love the fit and finish on this thing. The machine work is top notch with the knurls being aggressive enough to aid in the function but not sharp to the touch.
It appears really small when you first handle it, but after I installed it, I immediately noticed the difference than the oem mag release. I didn’t have to break my grip to ensure that the mag release was activated! Mags drop easily, WHEN you WANT them to. There is no accidental pressing of the release. This works great!!
The machining and finish are flawless/extremely high quality. Works perfectly in a Get 4 in right and left handed configurations. Magazine retention and ejection functions have been perfect. The texture and the subtle ramped angle on the release are really well executed. It really helps for positive mag changes without having to change my grip and has improved the speed and fluidity of mag changes. Really well done, much better than the stock and most other aftermarket mag catches I've tried.
I have tried every mag release on the market. This one surpasses them all. The ability to put forward force versus pushing into the frame gives small handed shooters the ability to not have to break the grip. For large handed shooters it is more efficient as well. The knurling gives a positive purchase on the release to make sure the pressure is effective in releasing the mag quickly. Great design and materials!
