    Shot my new Gen 4 last night. The frame is rubbing the first knuckle of my right thumb. Any ideas how to prevent this? Is it wrong to wear a shooting glove? The is my ccw. Thanks. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1358013612.112540.jpg

    I had the same problem with a gen 3 and looked exactly like your issue. The Grip Force beaver tail adapter solved it for me.

    Here's the gen 4 on Amazon:

    Looks like a slide bite, my knuckle gets damn close to having the same thing done with small hands. You'll have to get the beavertail or rotate the gun a bit in your hand to move it away

    It's not a slide bite.....it's the frame rubbing on my knuckle.

    Must have been a marathon session then, hard to see a smooth plastic surface causing an abrasion like that.

    Rotate your hand to get the knuckle away or let it get callous and live with it I suppose

    Are you using a thumbs-forward grip, right thumb on top of left, both pointing toward the muzzle?

    Tuck your right thumb under your left one

    My wife and I have the same problem with our 26, it's the plastic beavertail area and It seems to be from the recoil rocking that area into the thumb joint.
