    Just bought a third gen 19, my old one was bought in the early 90's, wish now I'd kept it since my size eleven hands just don't fit Glocks idea of how big average fingers are. Guess I'll just have to learn to live with it.

    Nope, I prefer the finger grooves. I actually sold my old G 22 because it didn't have grooves and a rail. Finger grooves help with recoil control by giving you something to help resist up/down motion.

    I like them on the full sized Glocks. Not really on the smaller ones. Little crowded for me.

    I hate them.. and I don't understand why Glock doesn't have the sense to leave them off the pistol. Anyone who wants them can slip on an aftermarket grip sleeve in two minutes... or they could have been really brilliant and made them an option on the Gen4 like the backstraps..

    They are OK. I like both, my hand feels and fits both. I can take them or leave them. I can do without the rail, don't like the way they look.

    This omission seems to be Glock's BIGGEST fail with the Gen 4 model.

    they need to make a gen 5 - RTF with no groves. That would be a perfect fit.
