    At SHOT 2011, Glock displayed a new product: an add-on backstrap for the Gen 4 models that also featured a beavertail grip. This should interest those who have a problem with “slide bite” when shooting Glocks.

    It was displayed on a G17 Gen 4.

    The beavertail backstraps will be available in sizes/thicknesses that correspond to the “Medium” and “Large” backstraps that are already available for the Gen 4 Glocks.
