    The rule seems pretty clear for using only Peace brand extenders, does anyone know why? I have the Scherer brand and they aren't that much different.

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    I think it is because that the Pearce brand was at one time offered from Glock. The rule in most cases is : If it was stock from Glock or ever offered from Glock then it is legal. I have tried both and I by far prefer the Pearce.

    I don't know the reason other than they typically allow something only if they feel there is no competitive advantage from the addition. I have not used either so I couldn't comment on any advantage/disadvantage. The rule could be best answered by Scott Gilbertson at GSSF.

    Don has the correct answer.

    No one is likely to make a fuss if you use them...unless you win :)

    I asked this very same question a couple of years ago, and got far less polite replies.

    Scherer extensions are actually bigger than the pearce, if they were the same size, I expect it would be legal to use them. The bigger extensions can give someone a competitive advantage against someone using the Pearce extensions.

    Now none of that is written in the rules that I've read, but thats my analysis.
