i;m looking into putting an extended mag release on my old standard auto
and not seeing a lot of info anywhere. nothing on U-tube.
do we shy away from this or is it so simple nobody mentions it ?
been all over the web & it;s just about a non issue.
any advise.
thank you

I had visions of flying springs & pins, don't look so bad now.
thanks to all that responded. It seemed to be a good setup until I tried a
markll with an extended release, then I knew what I had been missing.

thanks once more

well, I ordered up the extended mag release and a few other dittys from
Brownells , Weigand and Midwest , scope mount, taps, extra mags.
I may have opened up a can of worms here but it will be a lot of fun.
The release may be a three handed job, but it looks like a good
challenge.
thanks again for the support.

mag latch update

Well the extended mag latch is on [ needed to run a 7/64 bit through it]
after about 2 dozen failed attempts I checked pin with latch out of the
frame and sure nuff had a booger in there.
Bullseye that drawing was just what I needed thanks a bunch.
The drilling & taping went well and I mounted an older BSA reddot on top.
10 round mags are on the way & it's new life for the old standard.

thanks again for the help everyone
