Watched several videos attemp to explain how to release the spring that hold the slide mag release button so you can slide it out and reverse it.

None seem to correspond to what I am seeing on the GX4. Has anyone switched their mag release button?

Thank you, First time short time form poster ;-)

Sorry it took so long, my friend was unavailable.
It should look like the first picture now.

Using a flat blade screwdriver I push the spring towards the front of the grip and out of the notch,picture 2

In picture3 you can see the groove behind the mag release

Push the mag release out from the left side, you may need to use something to push it through the side of the frame. When it clears the inside of the frame it will pop loose.

Insert it from the right side of the frame so the spring is in the notch in the mag release,
keep pressure from the right side and reach in and push the mag release towards the front of the grip until it lines up with the hole on the left and it will pop back into place.

It should look like picture 4 now

You have to push the spring forward instead of pulling it back like you do on a Glock. I couldn't reinstall it until I put the mag release in from the left side. Hope this helps.
