I'm trying to buy one for my G17, but glock makes 2 versions. a 2 pin and a 3 pin. what gives?
I believe the 2 pin is an older model 3 pin is newer what generation is it?
3rd gen and newer.
It is a sign that you really don't want an extended slide release.
If you have a thumbs forward grip, it's possible that you'll keep the slide release from coming up as the mag goes empty. I had one for a while, and I couldn't figure out why my slide wasn't locking back most of the time. I eventually realized that I was interfering with the slide release with my thumb. I went back to the standard one, and no more problems.
FYI there are 2 pin 3rd gens.
That was gen 2.5. It had the rails and grip change but 2 pins.
The 3 pins is what marked the beginning of the 3rd gen.
actually I do.
I have the same problem. I shoot with my thumbs forward with a very high grip. The extended release was too much...
which is how you SHOULD have your grip. That's why I've never liked them
I actually had that problem as well.
