    IMG_20191121_165741.jpg I just bought a MK lV and am having some difficulty with the bolt release. I have found a extended safety switch but I was looking for an extended bolt release.

    I plan on buying both for ease of use and for thumb placement. Does anyone know where I can find a bolt release to fit this pistol?

    Thanks.

    Todd.

    FYI.
    I'm right hand. So if using my rt thumb to release the bolt i have to lift my palm off of the grips. I'm trying to learn the fundamentals of pistol shooting as I am a shotgun guy and never really bothered with pistols.

    Any tips would be great.

    Volquartsen. Go visit Rimfire Central (dedicated rimfire site) but be warned, the modification bug is strong and the site is an enabler!

    If I understand the question-I dont think the bolt hold open is used for (as) a bolt release. I think after a while that wears the release and it wont hold open the bolt. This probably dont help.

    You can use the bolt release but with a full magazine I just pull back on the bolt and sling shot the bolt to start shooting. Hope this helps.
