Video: How to Effortlessly Reach Your Pistol's Magazine Release

No matter how small your hands are, you can perform this function by following this simple trick.

posted on November 16, 2020
Small-handed shooters would probably agree there are times when even an extra half inch in finger length would make all the difference in being able to more smoothly perform some basic handgun functions. Locking back the slide on a semi-automatic pistol is one, for example. Another, addressed here, is depressing the magazine release button.

The reality is that it doesn't actually matter how big your hands are, how long your fingers are or how large your pistol is. Indeed, smaller hands have the disadvantage when it comes to reaching certain controls on a pistol such as the safety, slide lock and magazine release. But there are very simples techniques small-handed shooters can employ in order to mitigate their hand size and allow all of these functions to be performed easily, and can even be practiced with an unloaded firearm while relaxing at home. 

Watch this video as renowned Gunsite Academy Rangemaster Il Ling New demonstrates a simple tip that lets any shooter effortlessly reach the magazine release.
