    What is allowed/prohibited in the amatuer civilian contest?

    Are my GAP baseplates for my G26 illegal? How about the pearce/sherer ones?

    Any Glock factory part is legal. Pearce bases are permitted. No other afterparket parts except rubber/tape grip sleeves and any similar notch-and-post design sights. That means no fiber optics, lasers, express sights or ghost rings.

    The above applies to ALL CATEGORIES, except Unlimited/Masters, where anything goes.

    If you are speeking of the Glock Part # 7151 plus bases; yes they are authorized however you cannot load more than 10+1 for any course of fire. On the Plates and Glock "M" you may shoot all 11 rounds if needed to get the steel down however there can be no more than 2 in each cardboard D-1. In the 5 to Glock stage you may only shoot 10 rounds but you may load 11 so if you have a failure to feed/eject you have one spare round to get you 10 shots.

    GAP Enterprises is not in any way affiliated with Glock, Inc, so anything they make for Glock is aftermarket. Use of their products will require you to enter your pistol in Unlimited/Masters Category.

    But you said above that Pearce extensions or OK, and they're not affiliated with G;lock, Inc.? Why Pearce, and not GAP?

    O-R-H, try reading the rules at www.gssfonline.com Danny didn't make up the rules--he just correctly told you one small segment of the rules. Pearce are allowed in the rules section. BTW: I shot one match with Scherer's on mine. None of the ROs knew the difference. At the time, I didn't know they were illegal either.

    Try shooting your G26 with G17 or G19 mags. That's legal and much better than G26 mags with baseplates or finger grips.

    I would, but GSSFonline is under construction right now.

    I guess rules is rules.

    If my feable old mind has not failed I think I remember reading somewhere several years back where Glock at one time offered the Pearce extensions on some of the compact models. Then when Glock came out with their 7151 plus extensionsthey would still allow the Pearce because they at one time offered them. They have never ever offered the Schere or the GAP Enterprises stuff with any Glock.

    I thought when you mentioned GAP you were referring to the Glock P/N 7151 Plus extensions that will fit all Glock FML mags. Sorry for any mis-understanding.

    It's called Unlimited and it's a tough neighborhood to play in. Fun but tough. ;)

    That's true for reloads, but if you're shoot'n factory ammo, you are granted a re-shoot if you wish, correct?

    I assume the rules apply to the indoor matches also. I would like to keep my hand grips :)

    A few years ago, when I participated in matches, they permitted Scherer grip extensions for my G26. I made a preemptive call to GSSG and talked to a person (don’t remember his name) who said they permit Scherer even though only Pearce is listed as OK. Didn’t have any problem at the matches. But it was a few years ago.

    Re-visiting this question, specifically regarding GAP Enterprises baseplates.


    I'm looking at the Current GSSF Rules, and scratching my head, because one point seems to permit aftermarket nonmetallic magazine baseplates in Stock, while another point seems to prohibit them.

    Can somebody enlighten me?

    You are granted a reshoot on the 1st malfunction period. They don't ask about ammo. It used to be where you only got a reshoot if you were shooting factory, now it doesn't matter but only 1 reshoot without going to see the armor.
