There are elements of your AR that make a big difference that you might overlook but use all the time. Of course, many people focus on the big things, however, every part of your weapon plays a role. How often do you flip the safety or reach for the mag release? That's right, all the time.
I don't mean to be melodramatic, but time wasted can never be recovered. Is your mag release button quickly deployed? A San Tan Tactical extended mag release is there ready to use and easily accessible. Along with the safety and trigger, the Ultra Grip Extended Mag Release is likely the most used feature on your AR. It's there when you need it, but it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb to hang on your gear or accidentally drop a mag.
The San Tan Tactical extended mag release rides a little higher, therefore, you can grab it when you want to, easily dropping that exhausted mag for a fresh one. Additionally, the Ultra Grip Extended Mag Release wears a textured surface so you can firmly deploy and replace that magazine without thought.
This is an upgrade that should honestly be considered standard issue. If you ever run a weapon with a San Tan Tactical extended mag release you will not consider doing without one. You will be surprised that the skill-set necessary to install an Ultra Grip Extended Mag Release is not professional grade armorer level. If you can use an Allen wrench and punch, follow simple directions, then you can make this happen. This is a quick, easy upgrade that you will never regret.
