    What is this part of a gun called? I don't think it's the back strap but I wouldn't call it a beaver tail either. So what would you call it?

    Once we define that, is there anyone that will undercut it? Much like the trigger guard getting undercut.

    It's the grip tang.

    It's as under-cut as it can be made, it can't be reduced in size anymore.

    What problem are you trying to fix?

    I REALLY want a compact sized 10mm. A lot of people say the the G29 is close to a compact size, but close doesn't cut it for me. I was looking at a way to get my grip as high as possible. I think it would go a long ways if I were able to undercut both the grip tang and the trigger guard. Sounds like I can't though.

    GLOCK already has and extremely low bore-axis to grip height. I still don't understand what it is you're trying to accomplish. Are you trying to get a G19 sized/shaped 10MM pistol?

    If so, it's not gonna happen.

    That's exactly what I want and I feel like crying when I think it will never happen. Boo Hoo.

    Hat I really want is to get all fingers on the grip of a 10mm Glock that isn't full size.

    I presume you're already aware of the Pearce +0 grip extension for the G29 (PG-29) and it isn't satisfactory. If that's the case, you're out of luck I believe.

    Yah, I'm not any sort of fan of having any part of the interface between me and my handgun being any part of the magazine. I want to grip nothing but solid, predictable frame.

    It's a shame Glock doesn't make a true compact 10mm. It may not be the biggest seller, but I bet they wouldn't stay on the shelf real long.
