I'll start it with a "yes". :D

Personally, I always liked the length of the Walther levers, but I always liked the width of the H&K levers like the P30. If there was a wider metal mag release available for the PPQ, I'd buy it.

I assume we could reuse the pins that are already in the pistols?

Ill add a yes as well. You can even put me down for one, maybe two. Wide like balance mentioned or standard width would be acceptable.
Im also willing to be a tester.

ANY parts produced for the PPQ will serve to expand awareness and marketability, all for it :D

If I am not wrong Walther is already producing the needed parts used in the PPQ.
So maybe some people who do not think it's not good enough for them. They should find another firearm to own.;)

Not following.. I thought the op was referring to an aftermarket aluminium mag release?

This is a poll for whether or not you would buy an aluminium mag release.

I would think that a simple "yes, I would buy" or "no, I would not buy" would be sufficient.

Well I like posting what I really think. So?
I have no problem with someone having different opinions than I do. That is one of the things that makes forums interesting.

But I don't believe this...

...is good for a civil discussion.

I'd really like to see this aftermarket part become a reality, so I'm interested to see how this poll turns out.

Just so the uninformed may know: the polymer used is stronger than aluminum.

I didn't ask for it for it's strength.

If someone wants to replace a part on a pistol, it is not a sign of disrespect to the manufacturer, and it is not a sign that the part is not good. It is a sign that the owner has changed a characteristic of the design to suit their personal preferance.

How many people "against" the idea of an aftermarket part on a PPQ have changed their sights?

How many people "against" the idea of an aftermarket part have complained because of the lack of aftermarket parts for these pistols.

If this was the general attitude of PPQ owners with regards to aftermarket parts, I wouldn't want to make any parts for these pistols either if I was a manufacturer.

Wouldn't aluminum be worse than polymer for small parts like this ? Wouldn't forged steel or a shorter polymer part make more sense ?

Aluminum is rather soft and I could see it easily bending out of shape.

I guess the same could be said for a certain other poly firearm which has a huge after market selection. I'm sure the manufacturer made the gun the way they saw fit and yet people still customize them.
