[SHOT 2016] Battleline Industries Ambi Glock Mag Release

Battleline Industries has a small kiosk just outside the press room here at SHOT Show 2016. Their “Ambidextrous Glock Magazine Release” caught my attention. The magazine catch/release is a simple drop in upgrade for Gen3 Glock 17/22, 19/23. In fact they claim that it is easier to install than a standard mag catch as you do not need to bother moving the spring out of the way, This will slide right behind the spring. No price as of yet but they are shooting for late 1st quarter or beginning of 2nd quarter this year.

Battleline Industries also makes an upgrade kit to turn a carbine stock into a precision rifle stock.

he patented Stock Attachment Precision Rifle (S.A.P.R.) was developed by Battleline Industries to enhance the standard B5 Systems / LMT SOPMOD stock, giving it the capability to

The cheek rest can be rotated to the right or the left depending on the use of the shooter. For example if you take off your scope, you can quickly flip the cheek rest 90 degrees by lifting up and rotating it to either side and use the iron sights. Or if the cheek rest is too low, it could interfere with the charging handle if the stock is collapsed too far in. So you can flip the rest aside to rack the charging handle.

The Stock upgrade retails for $199.95 and the monopod adapter is $59.95. They also make an upgrade for some of Magpul’s stocks.

    A piece of plastic. Bet they charge $59.95 for it, and lots of idiots buy it…

      You lose a lot of hypothetical internet gun fights without an ambi mag release.

    • Mcameron

      if youre left handed….its probably worth it

      • Phillip Cooper

        Does the stock piece not reverse? (I’m pretty sure it does- just like on my G2)

        • Nicholas Chen

          Only in Gen4. Not Gen3. More importantly the mag release works for both right handed and left. In a Gen4 glock, if a lefty shooter flips the mag release, it wont work for a right handed shooter.

    • Nicholas Chen

      It is metal. Not plastic.

  • Vhyrus

    Crap, now I have no excuse to not own a glock

  • Big Daddy

    So you drop the mag when you don’t want to?

    Good for a left handed shooter with a GEN 3. Other than that no way.

    • DonDrapersAcidTrip

      what was even the point of this comment

      • Big Daddy

        If you have a Glock you would understand.

        • DonDrapersAcidTrip

          My having a glock has nothing to do with the utter pointlessness of your comment

          • Big Daddy

            Please enlighten me about the pointlessness of my comment.

            If you knew anything you would realize your trigger finger will most likely engage the mag release and drop your mag as you are shooting, not good.

            GEN 4’s already have a mag release you can reverse if you are left handed. You cannot with the older Glocks. Therefore this is good for a left handed shooter with the older GEN 2-3 Glocks. Not many people still shoot GEN 1s.

            This is why i don’t comment here much, too many people who do not own firearms making dumb comments. Especially to people who are very involved with firearms and train and/or shoot a lot.

            By your comments it obvious you do not own or shoot Glocks at all. probably not much of anything. If you do than you have no idea what you are talking about. Either way you don’t know jack about firearms.

            “Good for a left handed shooter with a GEN 3. Other than that no way”

            WOW what an insightful comment to write on an aftermarket ambidextrous mag release. If your left handed, good, if not then pointless. What would we have done without this genius insight to to explain this thing to us. Thank god you came in to set the record straight!

            I’m aware GEN4’s have a swapable mag release? Your just one of those people like to assume your personal ideas and thoughts (that you put a whole 2 seconds effort into lol) apply to every other person and are some mind blowing revelation nobody in their life would of thought of. probably print out email chain letters to read aloud to family members who don’t care too lol.

            “If you knew anything you would realize your trigger finger will most
            likely engage the mag release and drop your mag as you are shooting, not good.”

            Not unless you have giant sausage fingers and the mag release activates a lot easier than it looks in the actual video. But I mean what do I know considering I’m left handed, shoot glocks, and half the time glock or not prefer to use a right hander mag release and just bring my trigger finger back to activate it. But please keep up with the ignorant lecture that was nothing more than your opportunity to run your mouth and make you feel like you have things to say to about firearms.

          • Big Daddy

            I have my finger exactly in the place that release is right now on my G26 and it would activate the release without doubt. As well as interfere with it’s operation.

            You do not own any Glocks and if you do you don’t know anything about them.

            You’re just a troll on a gun site on the internet.

            This is why this site is a place knowledgeable people do not post anymore.

          • DonDrapersAcidTrip

            So, sausage fingers. Great your fat hands don’t apply to every other person clown.
            “You do not own any Glocks”
            lmao you are literally just talking out of your ass?

          • Big Daddy

            You are why this place is ruined and nobody who knows anything about firearms comes here to comment just clowns & trolls like yourself.

          • DonDrapersAcidTrip

            You think that’s why it is? Not people like you talking for no reason other to than to sound authoritative and hear themselves talk?

          • DonDrapersAcidTrip

            What’s hilarious is it’s people like you that are constantly throwing old man fits about how “kids nowadays” can’t handle being offended when nobody throws a bigger cry baby fit over anyone not immediately falling in line with your party stance.

  • anon

    Very will thought out and simple solution if you are a lefty. I am just impressed by how simple it is.

    The stock thing looks dumb and is overpriced though.

  • Patrick

    I’m right handed but on my Grand Power pistol, I found that I use the “left-handed” side slide and mag release with my right index finger because it feels more ergonomic.

  • Nicks87

    I’m a lefty but I grew up shooting guns made for right handed people. I just learned to adapt and overcome. No need for gizmos and gadgetry.
