    I like the PG model for the narrow profile.

    I've got the XDGuys one, but I would have bought the PG if they would have been in stock when I ordered. It looks like they are still out BTW...
    The XDGuys stop is SHARP - but works exactly as advertised.

    Do you have the first version or the improved later version?

    The first one was sharp and harsh. Their second one is MUCH nicer!
    Very easy to drop the slide.

    I still tend to ride the slide stop with my thumb though, and the PG version appears as though it may be better due to the slimmer profile and higher position in relation to the slide. It is longer (rearward) too.

    I'm looking at getting the XD 45 in the 4 inch model with the thumb safety. My question is will the ESS from XD guys work on this without modification to the gun? Has anyone done had any luck with this? Thanks in advance.

    UPDATE: i ended up getting the pistol gear. wow i love it. slide release is much easier. its up and out of the way of my thumbs so no more unintentional slide release.

    Looks good, but won't fix the issue for guys who thumb the slide up unintentionally. The Pistol Gear unit does...

    I don't know, never heard of unitentionally hitting slide release with the thumb. That's on the user, maybe more weapon familiarization would help with unintentional user error. There is no such thing of a accidental discharge where I come from, or unintentional anything. All the stuff falls in the hands of the user, guns don't shoot themselves.

    Question: how did you get this from PistolGear? I've been watching their site for over 2 weeks, and they seem to never get it in stock. Did you buy it some time ago?

    I was wondering the same thing. Must have chosen the "Notify Me" option. Kinda thinking about getting one myself but it's never in stock.

    And the reason I really like the looks of the PG slide stop lever is that it appears to be longer than the others for more mechanical advantage. 800 rounds through my XD and it's STILL extremely tough to push that slide stop down. And it looks better. Although I like the look of that magloc one too.
