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 size = roughly Canik "Small"

CANIK METE/RIVAL BACKSTRAP - BRASS
Recomend exelent product
Canik Brass backstrap
Adds weight fits good and looks great on my Rival!
Received the black backstrap and easily installed it. Made the Canik feel even more perfect. The weight and size of the backstrap make grip easier, very well balanced, and tighter. Absolutely recommend. Very high quality product. Quickly ordered the +4 extensions and magwell as well.
Excellent fit and finish. Custom color was perfect
Balanced and precision fit.
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.
