I am thinking about getting a extended mag release but saw that some are not usable in production class? is there a certain length on the mag release or is it prohibited all the way around?

also are trigger jobs allowed in the production class? is there any restrictions on trigger jobs?

thanks.

you should really look at the rule book for USPSA for the answer

yes you can legally do some trigger work in production class...I can't remember off the top of my head about extended mag releases..I don't like em anyway

check out the all rules here:

To be truthful, I don't think anyone would care if you ran with one or not at the local level. Least I've never seen anybody inspect any guns at local matches...Now in a Big Match that would be different...or if you suddenly started kicking everyone's a$$ then you might be inspected...from what I've seen the ethics are very high here locally

But to get started in it bro...do what you gotta do...if you end up in Open well so be it....main thing is to learn the game, have fun and be safe....

read the rule book...its good for ya

:lol3:

You can put an extended mag release on your Production gun only if it's (that mag release) offered as a factory option.

You CAN NOT put a "big button" on made by an aftermarket company. It will boot your gun out of Production class, even at the local level.

Hope this helps.

The advice already given is correct, but a brief addition:

This is addressed by the Revisions to the Production Rules, effective July 1, 2009 , found here:
http://uspsa.org/rules/2009_Production_Rules_Revisions.pdf

Specifically, it says:

A factory/OEM magazine release which extends only the length of the magazine release may be used.

A magazine release which provides larger surface area (paddles, buttons) may only be used if it is an OEM part available on an approved model of gun.
Other divisions do not have a limitation at all on the magazine button that may be used.

Trigger work is allowed in Production, but everything must be internal (i.e. nothing visible on the outside of the gun) and all safeties must work. There is no minimum trigger pull under USPSA rules. (This is notably different from the international IPSC rules in which there is a minimum trigger pull weight in Production for the first pull (5lbs)).
