    Pinky Slips Off Bottom Of G-30 Grip

    When I shoot my Glock 30 Gen 4 my pinky finger many times slips off the bottom of the grip to rest under the bottom of the mag - please see photograph. I have tried a Pearce PG-30 grip extender but it really doesn't add any length to the grip. When my pinky slips under the bottom of the grip my other two fingers fit perfectly in the grip finger grooves.

    When all of my fingers are on the grip the pinky is right on the edge of the bottom of the grip - please see photograph.

    I know placing the pinky on the bottom of the grip is not a totally correct grip. Does anyone have thoughts on which is best or any suggestions. Thanks, Bill

    This Is why I didn't opt for the G26, I think your best bet would be to check out a +2 or +3 mag extender or just carry/use a G21 mag

    Shoot with two fingers on the grip, the way it's designed to be gripped.

    Do you see a difference in shot placement with your pinky in either position?

    My pinky does the same with the G26 and G43. If your grip control works and you're comfortable with it, it shouldn't be a problem.

    That's always the trade off with smell guns...

    To get a good grip on them, you need to turn them into bigger guns...

    If you clean they won't smell so bad.
