Product Description

The 10-8 Performance 1911 extended magazine catch features additional length of approximately .045" over a stock catch, and a unique 30lpi serrated curved button surface for positive activation. This magazine catch also features a number of other features that make it more than just cosmetically unique.

-Machined from bar stock. Not cast or MIM.

-Interior of the catch is relieved to prevent trapping of the magazine when the button is pressed. 

-Flat right side of the catch is slightly overlength to permit filing to a flush fit with the flat surface of your frame.  

-Catch ledge is raised .010" for better magazine positioning relative to feed ramp.

-Spring tunnel dimensions are improved over Gen 1 catches, to provide a softer feel when pressed.

Tumbled, then bead blasted for a matte finish with soft dehorned edges.

Carbon steel version has black oxide finish.

Stainless steel version has matte blasted finish.

Does not include spring or catch lock.

Not all 1911 frames are made to the same dimensions. This part may require some fitting to ensure proper fit and function in your frame.

  1. 10-8 Performance extended magazine catch 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2012

    Fit was very tight, a little Frog lube and some vigorous repeated pressing and it smoothed out. ?Neat design, works well without having to change grip.

  2. Excellent feel on a mag catch 5 Star Review

    Perfectly made part. Went in and operated without a hitch.

  3. Great mag catch, though a little tuning 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2012

    As a long term 1911 owner I know "drop in" doesn't always apply. On my TRP, perhaps the Armory Coat added a few mils to the frame, I needed some fine sanding and polishing to get it in. After that I adjusted the mag catch curve to decrease the tension on mag insertion. Other than tweaking for my own personal preference, The extended mag catch works great.

  4. Every southpaw needs one! 5 Star Review

    Being a left handed 1911 shooter, I use my trigger finger to release the magazine.

    The angled face on this magazine catch feels much better than the flat faced ones and works great. Speed reloads seem much more precise and the slight additional length is a plus.

  5. AWSOME Mag Catch 5 Star Review

    Bought this for my Springer Mil-Spec. Dropped right in with no fitting required. AWESOME Product!!!

  6. Highest quality, solid part. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2012

    Perfect upgrade / replacement for the stock catch on my Kimber Ultra Carry II. No fitting required for my particular UC II pistol with the 10-8 magazine catch.

    I completely agree with the post below that there is no trapping of the magazines. I run the KimPro Tac-Mag and have absolutely no issues. Fantastic work 10-8!

  7. Don't mess with any other. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2012

    Item shipped quickly. As always outstanding customer service from the 10-8 Team! Part dropped right into my Colt. Extra length of the catch was just what I was looking for. Not too long to worry about accidently dropping mags, but long enough to not have to break my firing grip for rapid mag changes. Highly recommend! PLUS DOESNT TRAP THE MAG!!!

  8. Just as Described 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2012

    Received my mag release and it just dropped in and fitted perfectly on my Rock Island GI 1911. Great product and exceptionally quick service from 10-8.

  9. Didn't think it would make a big difference, but it sure did! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th May 2012

    Put these on my twin Springfield TRPs. Both dropped in straight out of the package. The added length coupled with the forward angle feels great when thumbing the release. Only wish that the black oxide finish on mine was a little darker but that's only aesthetics. Absolutely no problem with magazine binding even when pushing the mag release all the way.

  10. Outstanding Upgrade !! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2012
