Unhappy P-14 unintentional Magazine release

I have a P-14, purchased around '92 or so. My problem is that the Magazine release button protrudes so far out from the grip that it releases the mag any time the gun in placed down, or even when just carried and it hits your body...Button is too big. Any others have this issue?

First, check how deep the hole is in the catch the spring fits in.
If there's enough room you can just cut the end down and re-checker it with a checkering file.

Possibly you can just buy a new catch that doesn't stick out that far. I'd check with Para-Ordnance for a replacement. I doubt their concealed models have catches that tall.

Thanks D

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll try that, but I've already dealt with the dopes at PO, and they sent me a replacement button, same exact dimensions...Myi other two pistols, a P-10 & a P-12 have the same issue. Does yours act like mine does? Thanks.

You can buy genuine Para parts from Brownell's.

When you open a schematic, click on the red "Show SKU Listing" box at the bottom for prices.

Schematics for Para-OrdnanceŽ - World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools - BROWNELLS

You can also contact the Brownell's Tech Staff and ask about a Para or non-Para catch that's lower.
