Actually this is false for me. About it being easily pressed.
It's longer and thinner. More stretched out. It's as if its more close to the finger grooves, than it is sticking out on the grip.
I'm the king of accidentally engaging the mag release when I'm carrying at 4:00 IWB.
I'll post a pic or two in a second comparing the two.
I feel it's a major improvement.
