Thanks for your feedback. Its greatly appreciated. We understand and respect they may not satisfy everyones requirements and that they may not be your cup of tea. However please know we did do our homework. We surveyed a number of CMR and PMR 30 owners in our Beta program. The number one complaint (which weren't many!) was that they would accidentally press the magazine release mid strings. This was our first requirement because that can never happen in a self defense situation and at the very least is very annoying at the range.
We used Zytel because its an amazing material and to many is a wonder plastic due to its impact resistance. It will not ding up like aluminum while hitting rocks/hard surfaces and has the bonus properties of high heat and chemical resistance. This is why you are seeing more and more firearms being made with this awesome material or clone equivalents.
While adding an extra guard to the heel release (without interfering with operation), we decided to apply what we learned from other firearms we support. Extra ergonomic material for secure magazine lock is always welcomed. Its amazing what a little extra material can do to to ensure confidence of a secure lock. This is why you are seeing companies like Springfield now building up their magazine bases on their pistols.
If you have suggestions on any new products for the CMR-30/PMR-30 we would welcome your thoughts. We love these platforms and they are products of love for us. We believe with some aftermarket support we can help Kel-Tec accelerate their momentum around them!
So take a chance and put some TK in your KT!

Considering with the heel magazine release it's kinda hard to drop when it's going right into your palm. I think weighted aluminum baseplates would be a better option for mag protection if that was the main concern.
