I've developed an oversized mag release button. simple design, if you can use a screwdriver, you can install this. The first pic shows the 4 styles prior to duracoating. From left to right: 1) flat radial, 2) domed/raised radial, 3) fine knurl, and 4) coarse knurl. Please select your preference of 2 surface textures.

The middle pic shows the factory mag button compared to the oversized buttons.

The last pic shows the coarse button installed on my 4095. The outer button is shown after final coating. The inner or adaptor button on my weapon, for photo purposes, was not coated to distinguish between the 2 parts involved in this modification.

Inner and outer buttons WILL be finished in flat black duracoat.

Hipoint says 995/4095/4595 buttons are identical.

For right-handed shooters the button becomes a nice thumb rest. It's very simple to roll your thumb to release mag, and stands off far enough from the thumb swell so that if you're wearing heavy gloves, the glove can't get pinched between grip and button.

For left-handed shooters, the button falls between your trigger and middle finger. From the few people that handled my weapon, the button seems more suited to right-handed shooters. However, left-handed shooters may be used to working over the button; so it may not be an issue.
At this time I'm trying to determine the level of interest.

You cant post a pic directly in the forum.... you need a host such as photobucket or picasa and then you link the pic from there to here.

the max size allowable is 400x600 if I remember correctly.

sorry for the inconvenience, we do this to save bandwidth. we are a poor but humble forum.

These look pretty good!
I like the flat radial and the flat coarse knurl versions.
Curious as to how it would install.I have a 995 TS that I shoot quite a lot, so
if you need someone to test and review, I'll be happy to volunteer !

Regards,
satch

I'll give an A++ for apparent quality, they look great! But no interest here. Sorry. I shoot with both hands but the original button doesn't bother me. As for dressing up a pig ...well, it's still a pig. The same goes for it's identical twin the Gluck, not much can make it a nice looking pig either.

Hello Sbuchho345. I kinda like your button. As I'm new to 995TS's, I'd be curious as to the installation procedure and the cost.
I personally like both the domed/raised radial, and the coarse knurl.

Installation is simple.remove barrel receiver assembly. Remove screws holding stock halves together. Split stock, remove factory button from left halve of stock. Insert my inner adaptor from the inside spin on outer button using loctite blue. Resemble stock. Insert mag do function check on new release, reassemble barrel, receiver assembly into stock and go.

I'd love to get one of these! I can't for the life of me drop the mag with my right hand in shooting position. I have to swing my thumb far to the left, turning the pistol to the left to push it far enough down to release the mag.

Unfortunately, the handgun buttons are not the same as the carbine. these buttons are for the carbine. I haven't handled a Hi-point handgun yet. In my research and conversation with the factory, the handgun button is installed from the outside of the frame into the weapon. On the carbine the button is installed from within the mag well to the exterior of the grip.

I know you say it is designed for the carbine version, but on my brand new .45 jhp the mag release button barely pokes above the grip. Thanks for the idea of putting an extension on it, as I've oiled the mag and the button parts to no avail.
