Weight and felt recoil are directly related, so by adding weight, our brass backstrap calms 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. The 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 brass 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.
- absorbs recoil
- lowers the center of gravity (less top-heavy)
- High-traction checkered surface (better control)
- built-in mount for magwell (both the factory magwell, and TF version)
- increased "weak hand" reliability
- brilliant brass color! (Cerakote Black and Flat Dark Earth also available)
- Grip = roughly Canik "small"

excellent backstop adding just enough weight for grip stability and flat even shooting
Fit perfectly and easy to install. Good weight and feel. Thank you.
Good fit! Made well and right away I could feel the difference, helps in keeping muzzle steady!
Customer e-mail updating earlier review: "Robin, I have not received the original package order # 65625. Ms. Lydia Hovind sent me a replacement which I received yesterday evening about 6pm. I by chance I receive the original order I will send it to you asap. I do appreciate Lydia being helpful and professional in this matter. I installed the back strap and will be using it in competition this weekend. Thank you all for your help, I like your product and plan on ordering from you in the future. I think I answered a survey and gave 1 star for not receiving the ordered product. I would like to correct that to 5 stars if it comes up. Thanks again I'm very pleased, Michael Nell "
I love the feel and the weight of this backstrap. The grip feels really nice. It feels really nice when out shooting the gun.
Really good quality. More comfortable than the OEM back strap. Balances out the pistol
Awesome fit and finish when paired with the TF Magwell
I have these on two different Caniks. They are great. Adds needed weight and makes everything feel more solid. It shoots better. The ceracoat version has a bit less grip, the raw brass is like velcro.
Perfect fitment on my Mete, the black created a nice contrast to the FDE of the frame as do the black slide and black TLR-7A mounted. The weighted back-strap adds density to how the pistol feels in the hand and changes the dot tracking under recoil for the better. Plan on ordering (2) more, but these will be for my Walther PDP's. Both the Canik Mete SFT & Walther PDP's are excellent firearms and the brass back-straps add to their excellence.
