    I don't know. It actually looks intuitive to have the mag release there. I've never used one like that so I can't say anything for sure, but it appears that if you grasp the pistol mag that is hanging out with your hand wrapped around it, that you will be able to automatically depress that release at the same time and remove the mag with no additional motion. It might prove to be a quicker way to mag change. I'm not sure about it, but I don't say "ew" with everyone else.

    But then a mag release becomes a two handed operation. That sounds terrible imo.

    Agreed. I want my mag to drop free while I'm reaching for a new mag. Or at least with an AK I can knock the empty out with a fresh. I don't like the back and forth of this. I maintain my EW assessment. But I also respect @~ZENAS~ ' open mindedness. I just know I wouldn't like butt stuff without having to try it. ;) We love you anyway Z-man.

    I see what you mean about wanting one handed operation (although a tactical reload requires 2 hands anyway). But I guess I just wasn't thinking of this for a serious working gun, but a range toy. Who would use a conversion gun to "do work" anyway? Isn't this just for range plinking?

    I wasn't really thinking about "work" more like working the steel vs the clock. And the main reason @Leshaire would want it is because the poor guy wasted a tax stamp on a PSA 9mm kit. Bless his heart. Luckily it was a Colt style mag block so at least he's not totally screwed with the PSA Dedicated lower.

    Well I compete in rifle competitions and would love to get my 9mm in there at some point to compete in the personal defense optics class. So slowing up to an extremely inefficient two handed reload is not going to fly.

    And btw dickbag I SBRd a standard AR lower so blow me!!
