Now Glock has cheesy (compared to other companies) add on back-straps - and now even cheesier (if that is possible) add on beaver-tails.

What will be next?

Manual thumb safety

Built in key lock

Magazine disconnect

A lever to remove the slide without pulling the trigger

Ambidextrous slide stop lever

No need for these "beaver tails". If you are 300-400lbs. of fat to the point where you get slide bite then you need to go on a diet.
The idea of every pistol trying to add features of the 1911 is stupid. Glock hasn't had an extender beaver tail from the beginning, no need to add one now. They are useless.

This is ridiculous opinion. It's your opinion and I respect it, but please don't tell me if I should go on a diet or that the idea to add beavertail to a Glock is stupid - this was discussed so many times here: it's not up to the proper grip of the gun, it's not about how Gaston created Glock and we shouldn't do nothing else to it and so on such nonsense... It's about choice. If I don't have time and resources to improve my shooting skills and if such device as a beavertail is helping me, I will use it and, the result is what I care about, not someone that think that everybody else must learn to shoot like him, or should have same anatomy like him, I hope you understand how ignorant is tour opinion...
I learn how to shoot guns with 1911 GI style, I don't care about the hammer bites, I don't care about slide bites when I shoot Glock, but Gripforce adapter is helping me to get a hold of the gun close to my 1911 grip and my Glock shooting is improving with the beavertail, also I got rid of the slide bites... And your suggestion is that this result is useless or stupid... ? ...

I use the Grip Force adapter on my Glocks and so far I like them. It does change the grip angle slightly for me. Since the new backstraps replace the existing I am not real sure that any change in grip angle will result. They would be more for looks to me. I prefer the angle change.

I agree about the Gripforce, same here... with the little thickness that it adds to the blackstrap, my big hand falls better in position and my trigger finger is extended better, I think.

On the gen4 Glock OEM blackstrap with beavertail - I don't think we will ever see those...
I'm waiting to see a picture of recently purchased gen4 Glock with such blackstrap as some guys here were stating that they have,
so far they are none of it...

Haha. You and I had a similar discussion about a half a year ago about Glock coming out with an OEM beavertail backstrap. Here they are:

Beavertail backstraps are clearly visible in these photos of current auctions

... CCBBKK, I got the PM, also - thank you for posting the pictures !
As they say: Picture worth a thousand words, especially if those words cannot tell you if they have the beavertail for real or we are talking about different BT, as the GFA for example....

General Glocking

This is great, I'm so glad that I was wrong about Glock intention to do it, I can finally start looking for one of those for gen4 G17...

I guess with so many people that don't like those, it should be easy to find someone that will like to sell such useless thing to me...

IMHO I find this to be the final touch for Glock to the new gen4 guns, I don't think they need any other "upgrades", if you don't like it - keep it in the box or sell it to me... If you like it - more power to you... BTW I also agree with the opinion of the Maestro from the Sigforum, it fits pretty much my understanding about those backstraps and the reason I would need one...
I'll be happy if I can find now a US made G22 or 20 with one of those... in FDE if it's possible...

I love mine... I was using it for the last 2 years and I'm used to it...
Now, when I know that they are manufacturing the beavertail backstrap,
I'll be getting a gen4 Glock...

I second that. Cuz I'm a fat guy!!! I have to watch for slide bite and my skinny friends don't. It's not the guns fault, it's mine.

It took long enough for somebody to post a picture so we could see that the GEN4 adjustable backstrap is what somebody is talking about. This whole thread has turned into an internet rumor.

The new beavertails are part of the adjustable backstraps, the standard adjustable Gen4 backstraps did not have the beavertail.

Call GLOCK at 1-770-432-1202 if you want to clear the rumor part. They are on the parts list and people have been posting plenty of images of the beavertail back straps with very recent test fire dates. I understand the skepticism considering we've been hearing about these for years. I called up GLOCK also just to get a clear confirmation.

I have been shooting my 2nd gen glock 17 since 1999, and had shot glock 35 for 2 years and have not had any slide bite with any of these pistols. With these beaver tails, I wonder if glocks will now look like 1911s.

Thread title should be -

"Glock jumps the shark"

What's next? A single stack 9MM or a Glock carbine?


Glock increases its lead in polymer pistols by being the first to offer interchangeable beaver tails.

Considering you can buy them separately through the parts list ($16.00 each), it's only a matter of time before third party websites have them available. They are still very new so it will take some time.

From everything that I've read and asked about so far, it doesn't seem like the subcompacts are going to get the beavertails. Maybe this will change.

I've fired tens of thousands of rounds through Glock pistols, never have I, not once, been bitten! I think there are a lot of folks who need to lose some weight if they are being bitten...

I have only been shooting Glocks a short time but over 1000 rounds on my G19 and G26 and no slide bite for me. I like beaver and I like beaver tail on my 1911's but don't need on my Glocks!
