For anyone that owns a P226 or P229 that has ever had problems with their thumb accidentally resting on the OEM slide catch lever and thus preventing the slide from locking back after the last round, this smaller slide catch lever is a perfect replacement. The replacement is very easy (do a youtube search). Even though it officially lists this part for the P224, P229CA, and LEGION, it works fine in my P226 and P229.

I bought two of these, one for a 229 and one for a 226. In both cases it worked as expected. My high thumb grip was preventing the slide for locking open on an empty magazine because I was riding the slide release. This part fixes that issue. Now, my slide locks open on an empty magazine without changing my grip. I did have to modify my G-10 grips to work with these, but it was minimal and easily done with a file.

I put this catch lever on my P229 Combat because I carry this pistol IWB and the original slide catch sticks out pretty far. I’m pleased with it; works well and is tiny compared to the original, but with the cross-hatch checkering it is still very tactile.
