P5 Magazine Catch

Hey guys, I’ve noticed the heel magazine catch on my gun appears to be a bit tilted to one side. I just put new grips from Earl’s on the gun and they seem to get in the way when I try to release mags. I don’t know if it’s because the old grips were worn down or what, but is it normal for the heel release to look so tilted to one side?

You've dislodged the mag catch on one side. Remove the grips and reinstall the mag catch.

I took the catch off, it definitely looks bent.

Which variation do you need? all variations fit, but it could be that you are looking for a specific variation to keep your pistol "matching".

I probably have some spare magazine catches laying around, so I can probably help you out if you haven't found one yet.

I ended up buying a new catch from Numrich. It fixed the issue and I’m now able to use my new grips from Earl’s without any issues from the mag catch.
