Southpaw Mag Button

Does anyone know or have knowledge of an ambidextrous mag release for a 1911? This southpaw is tired of middle fingering the mag release.

Don't use your middle finger, use your trigger finger.
This is one place where a left-hander has an advantage.
Simply press the catch with your trigger finger, then reach up with it and press the slide stop.
Unlike right-handers, you don't have to shift your shooting grip, and it keeps your trigger finger off the trigger during mag changes.

Jeff Cooper once had a German Korth automatic built for him with the mag catch and slide stop on the right side so he could use his trigger finger.

However, if you insist:
