Yep, I know that I feel with my Colt!

Fat people. Very, very fat people. With very, very fat hands.

I know, because I was very, very fat. Now I'm just fat. Okay, very fat... but I no longer have fat deposits on my hands that interfere with the function of my pistols.

I got slide bite when I was over 300 pounds. I lost 50 pounds, no more problems.

I would imagine the vast majority of people who want Glock beavertails are morbidly obese.

I have no need for a beavertail on a Glock. I've only been bitten by a older Walther PPK or a GI style 1911.

I just got my Gen 4 FDE G21. I got the four backstraps including the beavertails. I tried one of the beavertails and it feels great. I'm probably biased because the 1911 is my favorite pistol. I enjoy getting a good high grip on my pistol. I feel the beavertail on the Glock gives me a sense of better control. The gun feels more secure to me. I kept comparing it side by side with my other G21's. The beavertail is now permanent. I have to also what a badass gun that FDE G21 is.

Keep imagining *********.

I have large hands, XL glove size and have a hard time finding gloves that fit. Large hands with a proper high and tight grip = slide bite.

The bite in my photo was from my G17, I don't get bit with my G30.

edit - I wasn't talking *about* you either.

If you take offense to a general comment I made, ask yourself what it is about your life that is angering you. Certainly it's not a comment that wasn't directed at you, because that would just be stupid. If you're not morbidly obese and just have big hands, then clearly my prior post doesn't apply to you.

Looks interesting but I have been fortunate enough not to need one on a Glock. I just bought a new Gen 4 G27 with a test fire date of 2-28-2013 and it did not include the beavertail backstraps.

Thanks for the info. So far I haven't encountered anyone that has the beavertail back straps on a subcompact GLOCK. However, I haven't talked to anyone who has recently purchased a new GLOCK 29 or 30 Gen4 (as these are larger than the other subcompacts). I plan to call GLOCK on Monday to get a more definitive answer.

Color me confused. I just bought a brand new G21 Gen 4 (test fire date of 1-18-13) and it did not come with any beavertails *shrugs*

My Febuary G23 did not have them either. Trying out the Grip Force Adapters since I ordered them before the new backstraps became available.

I have one on my G-22, honestly I don't think it's needed. But I wish they would make one for the Bersa 45, dam thing bites me every time. The hammer not the slide, mean lil bugger.

I looked at the armorer and non-armorer parts list on the Glock downloads and do not see them on either with the other backstraps. Did not see the numbers you listed either. Please show/tell me where on the form they are listed.

The parts list on the website (even the Armorer's list) is out of date. The list that I am looking at is dated 02-25-2013. If you contact GLOCK I am sure that they can send you an updated parts list (they are updated very often).

I suppose it is too much to ask Glock to go ahead and mold the beavertail from the factory as it should be.

Might cost them .137 cents per unit.

Please don't take me seriously. My best buddy, in college, weighed around 500#. He didn't keep his weight numbers up to date. He had to go to the RR depot, to get weighed. Most scales only go to 300#. We never had any trouble in any East Texas honky tonk, for some reason.
