    Is this a comfort thing? Do many people get slide bite from GLOCKs? :dunno:

    I should add that A GLOCK official Beaver tail Back strap was announced today.

    I don't know if there's a lot that do, but I've seen a few.

    One friend of mine was often bleeding after a match, it was the rough bottom edge of the slide where the serrations were rubbing on the meaty part of his hand.

    my hand came super close but I think I've only gotten nicked once. my hands aren't that meaty though so I can see how it might be necessary.

    I have never had slide bite from a Glock and I wear XL or XXL gloves. May be the way folks grip them.
    I have had slide bite from a couple of other brands.

    There's some twitter traffic right now from the 2011 shot show. Glock is showing a beavertail palm swell for their Gen 4 pistols.

    Looking for pics now.

    Thanks for the suggestion but me and my Gen 3's have a tens of thousands of rounds down range just fine without slide bite. I'm just curious why GLOCK did it.

    Dumb Dumb Dumb! Really a beaver tail? Put a dress on your glock if you need a beaver tail!

    You apparently don't care if other people's hands get rubbed raw by the bottom of the slide serrations huh?

    Don't worry, you don't have to use one, and consider yourself lucky you don't need one.
