  1. Must have for Glock 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 26th 2020

    The stock Glock slide stop works, but if you use it to release the slide after a reload, its very hard to press it down. The extended release makes it fast and certain. Also helps when trying to lock the slide back. Easy install, does not eat in the way and I think it is a must have modification! Don’t wait Until your life is in jeopardy, add this today.

  2. Amazing what an additional purchase area gives for releasing the slide! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 18th 2020

    I was searching for an extended slide release that will give an additional "purchase area" to catch my thumb in order to facilitate the slide release . . . the little dimple does the trick! I was initially dismayed to find the product dismantled in the packaging (spring was separated from the extended slide release) but was able to affix it to the arm. The installation was quick & painless. I cycled the slide several times and was pleased how effortless it now is to release the slide with the Ghost Inc. G42/43/43X/48 ESR - EXTENDED SLIDE RELEASE. Kudos on a great product!

  3. DEFINITELY WORTH THE $ 5 Star Review

    nothing fancy but does the job

  5. Best extended slide release for G43/42 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 7th 2020

    Went to the range today to try it out on G43 and practice my emergency reloads and by far it was soo much easier to drop my slide every time. It wasn’t too big to interfere with my Safariland 7TS concealment holster, tier 1 holster and Safariland pocket holster.

  6. G48 is easier to operate now 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 4th 2020

    You would think by now Glock would get the idea that slide releases should not be hard to use. This works great and is an easy install

  7. Big Difference 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 12th 2020

    This release allows me to close the slide without "the death grip" to your thumb. I found that over a shooting session, the stock release tends to cause some thumb fatigue. Once this is installed, there's enough purchase on the lever to easily trip the slide closed whether using one or both hands. I haven't found the extra projection objectionable with holster clearance either -- it just works well.

  8. Great Quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 16th 2020

    I had a brand new Glock 48 that just wasn't acting right. The slide wouldn't return to battery, lock stock and barrel when dry firing. None of the other Glock pistols I've ever been around did this. So I investigated by doing a detailed strip and found the factory slide release to be very rough. Edges were not smooth, some of the finish was wore off. Decided to replace with the Ghost ESR instead of dealing with Glock on a warranty repair, and it fixed the issue. This Ghost ESR is well crafted, not just a piece of metal slapped together. The finish is top notch - the picture on the Ghost website doesn't do it justice. If you need a new ESR or want the enhanced ergonomics, don't hesitate to get this one.

  9. What a Difference! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 6th 2019

    The Ghost ESR looked too small to make a meaningful difference. But, once I installed it and handled the weapon it was apparent that the ESR is PERFECTLY sized to make operation of the slide catch easy and efficient. Well done!

  10. Great Control 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 24th 2019

    Great ESR. Makes the G43 much more manipulable for faster action. A must have.
