Nice work...The only thing I would add is........

Treat all firearms as if they are loaded.
Unload handgun, remove all ammunition from the working area.
Make sure your handgun is unloaded.

something like that...nice work.

I've been making them 34mm long, but I'm not yet convinced that is a good length...might be a tad too long. 32mm may be better.

I also started making what I thought would be USPSA Production legal releases but I found out in another thread that they wouldn't be legal if I make them. ....I can modify the factory release like Rich and Bar Sto, but not make it from scratch. Oh well.

I am not sure this is the case. If the SA Custom Shop has an extended release, doesn't that allow you the ability to use any extended release, regardless of the manufacturer? I may be wrong on this. I do know that a lot of guys are shooting Production with 3rd party mag releases, especially the Glock guys. As long as it is not a big botton or paddle, I think you are good. I ask the USPSA judges of XDTalk for clarification and corrections.

I installed one of Darrin's extended mag releases today. It was a breeze to install. The extra length is the ticket for reloads without grip change.
Thanks,
Dave

Dave,

I just replied to your email but it bounced back. I take it you were finally able to figure out how to print the pictures in the tutorial?
