Gen4 Grip Plug with Backstrap?

Where can I get a grip plug for my G23 Gen 4 that fits with the back straps on?

The back straps shouldn't interfere with a grip plug on the full size and compact Gen 4s in any way.

Try Glockmeister. I have one of there's on my Gen 4 Glock and have used the back straps without issue.

Michael I've got the grip plug from Glockmiester and it won't work with the back strap can't get it on. It says right on their website won't work with back straps unless you have a different one than I have.

i think the jentra plug might work as well but IMO the pearce is the way to go. i don't like the looks of having a screw on the outside with the jentra plug.

Are you sure the pearce works ? Do you have one on your glock with a back strap? Just asking because the picture in anything I look at looks just like the glockmiester one.

Pearce and Jentra have both been making quality accessory parts for Glock for many years.

Saw them on ebay earlier, around 7-10 bucks shipped. Another person told me he read that glock left that part in the handle empty for a reason. Trying to find info on that, cause id like to plug it if its not serving a purpose to keep dirt out.

Really? With the stock Glock back straps? Hmmm I'll check mine when I get home after work. I could be wrong.

*EDIT* I am wrong, hmmm. You could try something like this-

I got slug plugs, for both the gen 3 23 and the 27, but I cannot find one that looks the same, for gen 4.
On both guns, the plug sticks out a little, providing a ramp, which guides the mag into the well.
The plugs I've found for the gen 4 all seem to be flush fitting.
Any one find a gen 4 plug, like I'm describing?

For Reference: Here's (3) pictures of the Jentra JP-5 plug in my Gen4. The plug fits perfectly flush and it has 2 different mounting holes in the plug, 1 hole is used without the backstraps (as shown in the pictures), the other hole with the use of the backstraps. The screw is slightly recessed and totally out the way.
