source for widened &/or extended slide catch levers, for both 9 and 45 size frames, that are good for lefties?

I like my G34 slide catch lever. Might like to get one for my 17. Is there something like the for a G21?

As a lefty, I like to be able to use my index finger to drop the slide.

There is also the Vickers Slide Stop which, from what I understand, is not necessarily extended but rather shaped differently to allow easier engagement.

Speaking as a lefty I have no use for one and when I shoot right handed (which is pretty often) it gets in the way.

Lefty tip: Insert loaded mag then reach up and use the middle finger on your right hand to drop the slide. Once you get used to doing this, it is very fast and does not require you to shift your left hand grip like using your left index finger does. I was taught this method in a Way Of The Gun class, and I find it to be very effective.

I shoot r handed agood deal too, but one handed, not two handed.

I guess I'll just get the Vtac slide stop levers. The same part works for a 17 or a 21 then?

Why don't you just power stroke that sucka? You wouldn't have to butterfinger the slide stop.

Bro, do you even tactical?

Yeah, it just a little faster, and enables you to do other stuff w/ your off hand, like hold on to the mag you just took out perhaps.

I understand the benefit of training to always stroke is that it works w/ whatver pistol you may happen to be using, while manipulaping the slide stop is more of a proprietary move.
