    Default Are tailor made handguns a thing?

    Apparently I have short thumbs because on 99% of guns I try either I can't reach the mag release, or if I can reach it I can't push it in. I'm not comfortable breaking my grip or using my support hand, and I'm quite hesitant to go with a revolver. (I like my light rails and RMR's)

    The only gun I can use the mag release without modification is the S&W .380EZ, but it's .380 and single stack...boo.

    FN 509 seemed like it would work but the ambi release was hitting my middle finger so I don't know about that. Has anyone used the right hand only aftermarket mag release for the 509?

    I've tried just about every popular current production gun so far. Is there such a thing as getting a custom made pistol like a well fitted suit?

    Thanks very much!

    You're just messed up physically. Sure you can have a gun made just for you. All it takes is money.

    No such thing as a Production Run Gun to fit all. Everyone has their limitations.

    If you have enough money anything is a thing.
