    I haven't fired the gun with the backstrap installed yet, so I have no information about any change in the way it will affect grip when in use. It does feel better in my hand, that much I can say.

    Good question, Ed. The package has a medium and larger regular backstrap, and a medium and large Beavertail backstrap along with a new, longer plastic pin and what they try to pass as a tool to install it. All in one kit. I am not sure if the new Gen4 guns have these in the box with the gun now, maybe a new Glock owner can provide that information.

    My wife's Gen4 17, came with the beavertail backstraps.
    She removed the kit and put it in the parts box before
    I ever saw it. So I ordered one from Glock, and now she has a spare!

    That looks a lot cleaner than my aftermarket beavertail, I bet it feels a lot better too!
    The only issue I would have is giving up the magwell, but I think I'd rather have that full length beavertail than keep the magwell...it is an either/or choice, correct?

    Thanks for posting the pics!

    Nope, Dawson just came out with a brand new magwell that will work with the Gen4 Glock (Glock Gen 4 Magwell NEW! DP Glock Gen 4 Ice Magwell, Black, Large Backstrap Detail Page), so the combination of that magwell and the Beavertail backstrap should work. I don't know of another magwell that really works with the Gen4, at least not yet. By really, I mean that the magwell fits the gun, allows the use of the backstrap, and does not require any modification to fit.

    At some point...hopefully soon, do you think armorers or glock dealers will be keeping these in stock rather than having to go through glock? Do they come with all gen4 models?
