Oddest thing for me getting to know my new 19, no strap is the most comfy by far, but I shoot better with the large strap. Don't know why I decided to try it out on the range, but the result was my groups tightened up significantly.

I don't have large hands but I prefer the large backstrap on
the 23 and 27. The 21 , so far I have used the medium but I may give the large a try.

I spent a day at the range changing out the straps to see which one felt and functioned best. I settled on the large.

No backstrap always felt real good, like I had a massive grip on it...but that was the problem. That lead to overgripping and putting way too much trigger finger through the trigger guard. I ended up with the large backstrap and shoot well with it.

oddly, my G17 stock doesnt fit my hand correctly, but a Hogue grip sleeve to thicken it up works good as does a G20 stock grip. but a G19 fits pretty good because the length of the grip doesnt cause it to shift when i close my hands on it.

I did no strap for a while and thought the fit was great. Switched to a medium and kicked myself in the ass for not trying it sooner. Medium for me.
