RYG Reduced Pound Magazine Catch Spring

(34 reviews) Write a Review


The RockYourGlock reduced pound magazine catch spring for the Glock cuts the magazine catch weight in half for quicker mag drops and less resistance during magazine swaps. The reduced weight spring allows shooters to depress the magazine catch without requiring as much pressure to allow the shooter to stay on target during magazine swaps and increase the speed of the magazine changes. The stock weight magazine catch spring is approximately 5lbs and the RYG reduced pound magazine catch brings the weight down to approximately 2.5lbs. Fits all Glock models.

    Reduced Magazine catch spring

    Posted by L&L Gunsmithing LLC on 28th Feb 2023

    Works great and has become part of my comfort package for all Glocks. This along with an extended mag release makes the gun much easier to handle and shoot. Highly recommend.

    Just what I’d hoped for

    The spring “took the edge off “ the extra effort needed to actuate the oem mag release. I prefer the oem length release and had fiddled with all the extended releases. No thanks. This reduction is ideal for me. I’m glad I found this option. And super fast shipping

    The factory mag release spring is so stiff! Got this in and it's so much lighter! Way easier now to change mags

    Solution to the hard mag release problem

    Posted by Booterman on 31st Jan 2022

    Works as advertised - instant results. I have small and somewhat arthritic hands which makes pushing the Glock mag release button almost impossible with my strong hand. I struggled to find a way and resorted to using my weak hand, which resulted in a slower, more awkward motion. With the Reduced Pound Magazine Catch Spring, pushing the button is easy-peasy, fast, and flawless.

    RYG Reduced Pound Magazine Catch Spring

    Posted by 85montie on 31st Jan 2022

    I have carpal tunnel which affects my thumb strength. I tried an extended button, hated it. Put back the stock button and with this spring, mag drops so nicely. It's just perfect, I've had zero issues. I was worried that the button would be too sensitive and drop the mag when I didn't want to. It's not. Very easy to install too.

    A little smaller than the stock spring. Easy less than 5 minute install. Much easier release than with the original spring. Better feel.

    A mag catch spring improvement

    Posted by RichardL on 31st Jan 2022

    I have very small hands and the stock 5 pound mag release spring is very difficult to press without repositioning my hand on the grip. This really helps to allow faster mag changes. The only suggestion I'd make is that the spring could be even lighter.
