See my review of an Atlas Thumb Rest Slide Stop - is it a Nitro Fin Killer?

Recommended Posts

 

Take a look at a review I did of the Atlas thumb rest I got on my new Nemesis.  Besides just loving how the Nemesis came out, this new shiny addition was just real awesome.

I would give the shop a call.  They are a great team to talk with. There # is 855-940-9111.

I'm a Nitro Fin user, hopefully some will get one and I can try it. I do like this style of thumb rest.

Wouldnt it cause to lock the slide unnecessarily?  I understand a detent should prevent it but is the detent enough to counter the downward pressure of the thumb? Some push on them rest w/ modest force. Or maybe its not for everyone who use thumb rests?

fwiw I dont use any thumb rest in all my open pistols. Just want to learn the concept behind...

The slide lock should only lock the slide if you you are pushing upwards, meaning your thumb is below the thumb rest.  The only normal issue people have with thumb rest slide locks is usually when shooting weak hand where it pushes the thumb rest up by accident locking the slide back while firing.  These are made not to lock back (generally) and have the portion that contacts the slide shaved back, along with the more customary detent (used to keep it from being pushed up).  Hope that help, man.

Yes that helps a lot Thank you 😊 

I was imagining the thumb will push on the forward part of the rest as the rest/s.lock is positioned a bit back near the hand, causing it to lift its rear end and lock the slide.
