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.

    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.

      @Big Daddy 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 than people like you.

    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.
