Tactical Sports Orange Angle 2 Thumbrest

I bought one too for my Czechmate but did not like the angle so I just put it back in the bag. I just looked again and it looks like they were designed to be used with the non-slide lock pin. Nothing a little Dremel work would not fix if you wanted to use it with a slide lock/slide release.

In competition you don’t need the slide release because you should not ever run it dry unless it is your last shot in a stage....but if you are like me, this is not the norm. Haha

I bet you could get away with modifying the slide release to clear the *thumb rest [generic]*...since slide release/pins are consumable items that break regularly.

I might try and modify it tomorrow

Hey, found two of these in my case, the one with the arrow. They LOOK like slide lock pins. This could work unless they are something else

Yes, that will work. Those are the slide stop pins. The slide won’t lock back (you don’t need it in competition anyway) when using those pins. 
 

i use pins on my TSO and Czechmate.

*edit*

Thumbrest is thinner than OEM one. Screws are too long

It won’t lock back because the pin doesn’t have the lug that’s present on the slide stop. It’s the shorter part of the stock slide stop. Without that lug, nothing is going to catch the nub on the follower inside the magazine.

No, locking wasn’t the issue. The front screw was preventing the slide from going all the way back

Sorry, I misread your previous question. Anyway, you have to trim the screw by about 2-3mm so the slide won’t rub on the screw end.

Have you shot it much with that thumb rest?  How do you like it?

To me, it seems big enough to find a comfortable position for your thumb. 

Just finished the install this morning. Shot about 80 rounds with it this morning too. I love it!
I have two matches this weekend, should love it even more, lol.
