I voted before I read the thread. I figured the Euro mag release to be the heel type release.
I've handled HKs and Walthers with the paddle type release and frankly it doesn't matter much to me. Being a 1911 fan though I prefer the button over the paddle but neither is difficult for me to operate. As said before its all about training and muscle memory.
The heel release though - which is what I thought of when I read Euro release - is just a pain in the... heel! I hate them with a passion.
This is who we are, what we do.
