Looking for latest gen slide stop.

I have been looking all over for the latest gen slide stop with the bump. Nobody seems to have them in stock. Does anyone know where I can find one?

How much does it help with reset? I have a very early 9mm 5" Pro. The trigger job was performed by Dan Burwell. I have added a an Apex trigger. The pull is about 3.25lbs and reset is very, very short. Shorter than any drop-in parts that I have tried. I wouldn't mind if the tactile feel of the reset was a little stronger though.

Thanks.

The latest gen slide stop sure seem to be rare! I too would like to know if one should get the newest generation slide stop or the Apex Ram. Surely someone has done this and shed some light on the matter.

Did the 3rd gen slide stop make a difference?

It actually did on my 5" Pro Series but not by much. I changed the trigger bar assembly on mine to a "H" at the same time. I might add the Apex RAM to see if I can get more tactile/audible reset.

I changed out the slide stop, and added the apex ram. The reset is nice now.

Burwell trigger job done myself here, M&P competition spring kit, Apex RAM. All on my performance center ported M&P9, very very light trigger, with extremely short, audible and strong reset, basically no over travel. My only issue is the hinged trigger and what it does at first.
I did everything on mine and then the RAM. Yes the RAM helped tremendously.

Does the Gen 3 slide stop stand out farther from the frame? Is it easier to engage such as for a type 3 malfunction drill?

On my 5" Pro Series, I upgraded to both the new Gen 3 slide stop and "H" trigger bar ass'y.
