Looking for a source for oversized mag release buttons

Discussion in 'Hi-Point Parts and Accessories For Sale or Trade' started by michaeld1953, Feb 2, 2015.

  1. Where can I find a source for oversized mag release buttons for a 995TS. I do not personally need but know a guy about to lose his mind to find a place to get one or some. Can you help? Thank you.

    Hay guys, Michael is asking about the extended/over sized mag release button to try and help me find some. After an extensive search I somehow got to talked to sbuchho345 over the phone a couple months ago about the ones he had made. (nice guy) He said he can't make them cost effective to consider having a run made. He didn't sound optimistic about a future run. I have some pretty good arthritis going on and the extended/oversized mag release would give me some relief. I'm still looking in to options. If I come up with anything I will certainly let ALL Hi Point sights/forums know... Larry

    OK, now it looks like Scott (the maker) of the extended/oversized mag release buttons may be getting semi close to having enough orders to make a run of buttons. I hope to have more info soon. This is a good addition to the carbines. Joey (trigger/key chain guy) posted a "how to install" video on the buttons and in it he says it's a fine piece of workmanship and liked his new addition to his carbine. Stay tuned, hopefully more to come...Larry

    Yes, it fit all 3 of them. AND I would guess the 380 that they just announced at the shot show. The 995 needed a tad bit of the post ground/filed down (easy to do) but really the buttons are a piece of cake to put in. I think many of you are going to love the enlarged/oversized mag button. Especially if you have smaller hands or some arthritis going on.

    I wouldn't mind another one. If I remember correctly he did a few different styles.How many more orders does he need to run them? Cost per button? Style?

    Not sure witch style he'll settle on and the last guestimate about price was $25 each BUT I really don't know the what, when or how's until he contacts me. More to come...

    If you search there was a post about making your own from parts available at the hardware store.

    I've been looking on all the old posts I could find in all the Hi Point sights/forums. If you find anything let me know. I had thought about hanging out at lows for an afternoon and see what I could come up with but got a new spark of energy to try and contact Scott again. Still working on it a little bit every day. Can't pm Scott because his pm folder is full???!!?...
