New Gen 4 G19 Grip Question?

Just added a gen4 G19 to the stable. It came with 4 replaceable backstraps. 2 M one with a beavertail one without. 2 L one with beavertail one without. My edc gun is a gen 3 26. My question is what strap size will get me closest to the grip characteristics of my gen3 26?

Was it a new gun or used? Sounds like it is used and came with Grip Force Adapters that someone was trying out. Gen 4 models only come with 1 medium and 1 large backstraps as far as I have know.

The medium is on my Gen4 19, and I left it as is.

Perfect fit.

Suggest you use the beavertail. People using the M and L backstraps have had problems with slide bite. I had to buy add ons from Gripforce to save the knuckle at the base of my thumb. YMMV. Enjoy the gun.

Shot some today with the medium grip w/o beavertail. Didn't have any issues with slide bite, and I have big hands. Haven't had issues with my 26 either. I can't even get my hand high enough to get slide bite if I try.

I've got big hands and use a high grip, so if I'm really not careful, the slide rubs against the bottom of my thumb causing a mark that often bleeds. Not fun for longer range sessions.

Must be a new thing, my Gen 4 G19 that was born on 10/10/12 didn't have them.

I'll try to tomorrow. There is something that kinda clips where the beavertail meets the gun right under the slide.

There's an extra bump that it clips over. I think it would work without the extra hump on the earlier Gen4‘s.

I'm chomping at the it to find one to try on my g32/19 gen4. (Hint hint, Mtneer Man)

Here's a pic of the large beavertail on my new G17, picked up today. 1/18/13 test fire date. It solves my slide rub issues completely and makes it much more friendly to shoot.

I just bought a gen4 19 yesterday. It was manufactured on 3/14/13. It has the little hump on the frame behind the slide but no beavertail backstraps in my box. So I call Glock yesterday and ask if there was any way that I could get a set for mine. I was told that they haven't shipped any 19/23/32s with the beavertails yet. I reluctantly argued that answer. I was told " I don't know what to tell you,but they haven't shipped any yet". So I wrote Glock an email today and sent a few pictures to let them know what they are shipping out. ;-)
