I received a new Caliber Exchange Kit last Friday. Not my first. However in this latest kit there was a new style Med. Grip frame with a "fence" molded into the slide release area, and a replacement slide release lever with instillation instructions. This new lever is about 1/2 the size of the old levers on my FCUs. I haven't installed it yet because I don't have a problem with the old levers. I've herd of people resting there thumb on the old lever causing the slide to not lock open after the last round but, it just hasn't happened to me. It appears that with this new grip and lever combination it would be almost impossible to manually lock the slide open during "show clear" but I suppose you could just hold the slide back and just release it at "slid forward". I guess I may try it on one of my FCUs but that means I would only be able to use it with the new grip too. Any body else seen this yet and have any thoughts? Jim.
Left handed shooter here looking at maybe getting a SP01 Shadow Custom for USPSA Production. I am wondering how convenient or inconvenient left handed shooters find it to release the slide after a slide lock reload with this pistol. I am used to my M&P Pro which has ambidextrous slide release levers. After a slide lock reload with the M&P I use my weak hand thumb to manipulate the slide release. What technique do left handed shooters find best for releasing the slide on an SP01 Shadow? Thanks Eric
