Just acquired my 24th Glock, and there's a problem

I started 'Glocking' circa 1991, and last week I picked up #24 (no I don't have all of them) so after 20+ years and a LOT of rounds fired, you would think I could figure stuff out. This one has me a bit baffled, so I'd appreciate some thoughts from the gang.

The newest G is a 22C, as I tend to shoot .40 most of the time. I went to a range, put two mags through the pistol, and began to feel some discomfort where my supporting finger fits against the trigger guard. I have never had this occur in the past, and I fired my G23 and G27 the same day, without any issue.

There are no rough spots on the trigger guard of the 22C, and it actually feels exactly the same in my hand as the other Glocks. The only NEW part of this whole thing is, this is the first C model I've fired from the Glock line. So my usually flawed logic (I've been married four times) suggests that the compensated model might make the felt recoil move in a slightly different direction, causing the increased contact with the trigger guard?

Anyone with similar experience, all you C model shooters, please give me some feedback so I know that I don't need to change my medication.

Thx,

Jerry

I do not own a "C" but think you may be on to something. My thought is that the compensating reduces the muzzle flip and allows a more rearward push thus hitting your middle finger more.

I've never shot a 22C, just my 19C and have never had that problem. Interested in what others might have to chime in.

I put a Ported barrel in my G35 and nothing changed in the way that you described. The only Change I felt was the recoil, Being the same gun just different barrels I don't think this gun being ported is the reason.

What generation is your gun?
Are you right handed and are getting pain in your left trigger finger?

ETA- a picture of your grip might help. The "C" versions reduce recoil, barely, by reducing upward travel; they don't force the gun down. I have shot the 20C, 17C and 22C.

I think he means support hand; if he responds we will know for sure.

Your trouble may just go away on subsequent shooting sessions.

The first time I shot my 27, the trigger safety pinched my finger. Bothered the heck out of me, but the next trip the the range I had no such trouble, and none in the thousand or so rounds since.

I'm right handed and thats the side where the issue has come into play. I just got back from my local Glock smith and he 'relieved' the notch on the trigger guard while I stood there. We fired it and the difference was pretty amazing. He says he's run into this kind of complaint a lot, and this is his solution. He carries and trains classes with his Glock 23C (I didn't realize it was a C model) and he thinks this may be peculiar to the .40 S&W in a C model, since he learned this from his own experience. The factory stuff I shoot is pretty snappy, so maybe I've just learned a new trick. At my age, thats a miracle. LOL

So it was your firing hand and not the support hand? Had I known that I would have recommended a slight undercut to the trigger guard

i had a similar issue when i shot a 27, non-C model. thats why i ultimately went with a 26 instead. felt like it was hammering my middle finger nuckle on the bottom of the trigger guard.

I have a compensated ISSC 22lr target model. Muzzle flip is DOWN, not UP! Sounds like you're getting a little more downward pressure from that muzzle compensation!
