- increased "weak hand" reliability
- brilliant brass color!
Weight and felt recoil are directly related, so by adding weight, our metal backstraps calm the gun down, creating a smoother-shooting, softer-kicking, more-neutrally-balanced handgun. Adding weight to the frame also reduces the tendency toward "weak wrist" malfunctions common to all polymer frame handguns.
This manifests itself most often when shooting weak-hand-only. Extra mass gives the frame a greater resistance to being pushed rearward in recoil -- helping ensure reliable cycling when the shooter can't supply full resistance due to weakness, poor form, or a too-low grip. The metal backstrap concept descends directly from our famous "Seattle Slug" magazine guide, which adds 3.5 ounces of weight to the Gen. 2/3 Glock 17. That concept worked so well, it was eventually banned BY NAME in both USPSA and IDPA.
Weight: 3.5 ounces

The weight imbalance between the slide and polymer lower has been incredibly improved by the addition of this solid back-strap. It has totally elevated the grip and feel of my gun to such a level that I would highly recommend this upgrade to anyone. Aside from all the practical benefits it looks awesome!
IVE HAD MY CANIK EDC FOR ABOUT A YEAR, OVER 2,000 ROUNDS. AND ALWAYS FELT LIKE THE GUN WAS TOP HEAVY. AND NEVER "SAT" IN HAND FIRMLY. I ALWAYS FELT LIKE I WAS CHASING.. AS SOON AS I CHANGED THE BACK STRAP.. I FELT LIKE I HAD THE HAMMER OF THOR! SAT PROPERLY IN MY HAND! IT FEELS LIKE A F*@#*ING GUN! GREAT PRODUCT! IT BALANCES THE GUN!
I ordered the brass backstrap in Tungston. Excellent quality and craftsmanship. Great customer service!
The brass is the perfect balance for me. Very comfortable and it looks good, too!
