hi i recently my tpx and i like it alot.
 
but one thing i have noticed is when i am relaoding i need to reposition my hand on the grip to press the mag release button.
 
i would like to see a extended mag release button so there is no need reposition the gun in your hand to relase the mag. maybe have it extened out to flush with the side of the grip like another 1/8" or 3/16".
 
next is more of a questions.  will there be a rifle version of the tpx like the t9?  i think it would be kewl if there was or at least be able to add a stock to the tpx with a full picitinny rail on the top for sight and just a longer barrel for the finial rifle look. and if theres a FS conversion it would be the perfect sniper rifle.
 
let me know what you guys think.
 
thanks.

Goggle the extended mag release and there is a tread that shows how a guy made one. I am going to extend mine next time I take my tpx apart with some clay so I can make a mold and extend it out just alittle and use some plastic epoxy to make a new longer one.

oh and first strike rounds are good for distance but have you seen the damage they do. There is a problem where the front breaks on impact but the back fins stay together and make a ring of sharp plastic that has been cutting people up where they are hit on bear skin. They have a youtube video of the damage they do.  You should look it up.

Please pay attention to the last post dates in threads before posting.  For instance, the person you quoted/answered posted that last December and hasn't been back.  It is unlikely that he will get your input and most of us here frown on the bumping of dead posts.

And extended mag release would lead to some holster issues. Last thing you want is your mag ejecting as you storm an objective to find yourself ammoless when you draw your TPX. I suggest you practice a few reload drills. Get used to shifting the grip on the tpx.
