    Lone wolf need to be filed to fit some Glocks - Pearce are far better for fit.

    I understand they prevent lint, dust and other debris from getting into the frame.

    Some also say the plugs give the frame a finished look.

    I like the Sunset Insert in my G19, Gives it a nice clean,flush look. Allows you to carry extra batteries for CT Grips, or an extra last resort round.

    I use the Glockmeister version. Probably keep's the internal's cleaner, but it will speed up your reloads. Run several on the timer with and without if you doubt it.

    Just tossed the one I had in my 27, kept working out during a two day shooting class. I figured it was more of a liability than it was worth.

    I bought and installed "The Grip Plug". It fit very smoothly in my 32c. It was one of the cheapest. I did buy it at Amazon.

    Different colors are available.

    Here are a couple of links.

    What model plug did you get there? I looked up the website for sunset inserts, and advertised I could not find anything designed for a gen 4 g19.

    For 7 bucks, I like the finished look it gives.

    Every Glock I have owned got 3 things:
    1. Sights (typically Heinie slant pros; some got Novak)
    2. 3.5 connector (OEM; Ghost)
    3. Grip plug (Glockmeister; Jentra)

    One always wants something that is worse than useless to at least look nice! :)

    Glock grip butt plugs are the tongue studs of the Glock world.

    The gap in the grip with the thumb size cutout wasn't just a weight or mould issue; it was for extraction of a stuck or resistant mag. Filling in that slot with a grip plug eliminates that feature. It also eliminates a snag point during a reload, and makes the lower aft portion of the grip stiffer and slightly more snag resistant.

    There are other means of getting a quick grip to assist the magazine in clearing the mag well; most mags drop clear just fine. Vickers baseplates work well, as do small cut outs on the side of the lower grip frame, and many extended baseplates allow ample purchase for extraction, too.

    Some of the grip plugs out there can loosen or pop out during firing, and that can create a hazard which could be anything from an inconvenience to blockage to reloading a magazine. If it gets cocked, it could make extraction of a magazine more difficult.

    The Glockmeister plugs seem to stay in place better than others. They also make a SF plug, though for the full size glock, and not the G29SF or G30SF.

    Several years ago I did a survey here; looking for cases where a Glock had malfunctioned because of dirt/etc crammed up into the hole during a scuffle, or where a previously reliable Glock had started malfunctioning after a plug was installed.

    There were a couple of probable cases on either side of the question, but no major trends.
    So as for reliability, they seem like a wash.
    I own a couple but don't use them, and am not offended by those who do.

    I'd suppose one works as well as any other but I've never used them myself.
