If you find the magazine release process to be cumbersome, you might want to look into doing an aftermarket modification for an extended magazine release. Rob Pincus describes an aftermarket modification he’s used for one of his own firearms, which makes the magazine release easier to actuate without shifting your grip, rather than having to turn or shift the position of his whole hand. This will make your job easier, and you will be able to respond to slide lock quickly and more effectively than you could previously.
