The larger mag release makes it possible to release the magazine without changing the position of your grip. Easily installed & The cheapest improvement you can made to your HK pistol. Every HK owner should upgrade. Read the many raving reviews and you will see what you have been missing. Now finally available & hard to find!

  • All HK USP Tactical, Elite & Expert Pistols
  • All HK USP Full Size Pistols
  • All HK USP Compact Pistols
  • All HK P2000 Pistols (All Models)
  • All HK P2000SK Pistols (All Models)
  • HK45C this is the factory upgraded mag release for this model
  • Will not fit the HK45 full size, P30, P30L, VP9 or Mark 23 Pistols.

Installation Instructions:

This is a simple straight forward parts swap and can be done is a few minutes. The end result is a much easier mag release and better comfort for mag changes. Highly desirable and one of the cheapest upgrades you can do to your HK pistol.

Simple install: Use a 2.8mm punch to drive out out the roll pin HK suggests replacing the roll pin (clamping sleeve) EVERY time you remove any roll pin. Pull down on the mag release gently, remove the spring (replace spring if needed) from the old mag release. Replace the mag release with the new HK 45C mag release. Re-install by compressing the spring in place, and pushing the new roll pin in place. We have both the 3mm roll pin and the magazine release spring in stock below so grab a few spares. Swap out all of your HK mag releases with this upgraded version. It is the best upgrade for the money on your HK pistol.
Please note: In some cases, the extended magazine release will not engage the jet funnel magazines properly. It is best to use them with standard magazines only on the USP full size pistols.

Please Take Note: That although this mag release will fit all of the HK models listed above this is not an approved modification by HK. This magazine release is designed specifically for the HK45C as the standard OEM magazine release and not a factory upgrade for the HK pistols mentioned above. This new style magazine release has a steel insert. That makes contact with the magazine catch notch. And if installed on a USP pistol using polymer magazines. The steel contact point can eventually dig into the polymer magazine and cause the magazine fitment to become loose and possibly for mags to fall out. HK does not approve this modification especially for L.E. use.

"A must for USP"

Comments and Suggestions: Great, simple, inexpensive UPGRADE!


"Extended mag release. No good"

Comments and Suggestions: Thinner than original. Maybe 2 mm. longer than original release. Magazine holder tang smaller than original. USP.40 16 rnd mags would fall out while shooting or firearm being bumped. And I don't mean dropped or thrown!

Comments and Suggestions: The extended mag release works VERY well for the HK P2000SK. Quick and easy swap out. Just watch the little spring behind the mag release lever. Some might say this will change a pistol from "concealable" to "a range" pistol. Not true. The extended mag release is not much bigger than original, but really helps change mags quicker. I would buy again.

"Small upgrade with Big returns."

Comments and Suggestions: This fairly inexpensive upgrade might seem like a small modification. It will, however, change the overall perception of your HK and increase your pride of ownership. People who don't run HKs love to bash the "European style" mag release. The position of the release is far more ergonomic and accessible than most modern pistols and those with 100 year old designs. If you've manipulated a P30, HK45, or an HK45c you'll probably better understand my argument. The small increase in surface area great... More details

"Best upgrade yet!"

Comments and Suggestions: Shipped and delivered in an acceptable time (they were slightly backed up). Installation was very easy. Difference in releasing mags from the old way to the new with this new release is night and day. Highly recommended.


"Great item. Excellent Service."

Comments and Suggestions: As always you guys are the best. Easy install and a great suggestion to replace the roll pin. Thank you.


"Almost perfect"

Comments and Suggestions: I love the size and construction quality. Worked great in my .45 Elite, 9mm expert and .40 compact. However my clear polymer 18rd 9mm clips pop out of my 9mm Full size. I have had no problems with my 30 rnd 9mm clip. The only thing that would have made this better is not having a smaller mag tab and mor of the USP 9mm


"Excellent pistol modification"

Comments and Suggestions: The stock USP mag release is garbage. Luckily this extended mag release quickly & easily swaps in and works great with no other modification necessary. It's pretty overpeiced for just a small piece of plastic, though.
