- 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)
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.

I’ve purchased before and liked the products well. This recent item fits like a precision clock piece. Solid brass that adds counter weight to my platform. I recommend this to anyone looking for performance and muzzle control. Balance is the key.
Not only this back strap is great fits really well to my Canik Rival love the balance the weight is superb not to to heavy no to light.. would I recommend I said yes. 100%.
Awesome product, clean tooling and a perfect fit. If you have a Canik you need one !
Great quality feel and fit perfect
Just as pleased with this one as all my others. It adds some much needed weight to lite polymer frame of the Caniks. Offers a more controlled recoil which equals faster sight acquisition & follow up shots. Can’t go wrong with these.
Fits the Rival perfectly! Balance, recoil mitigation and muzzle rise show significant improvement!
Fit perfectly with or without the factory magwell attached. Bought the +4 mag extensions also. Noticeable difference. Looking forward to the Brass Magwell coming out and I’ll buy that as well. Excellent and personal service. They do care about customer service.
Like all the products here, great fit and finish, wish I could give it more than 5 stars!
Fits perfectly and balances gun as advertised Highly recommend
