Learn more about customizing the frame of the GLOCK Gen5 models
Every GLOCK Gen5 pistol model allows the user to change the circumference of the grip to fit the individual hand size and comes with beavertail backstraps in two sizes.
The beavertail backstraps are easily changed and secured to the frame with a single pin offering the following options: a short frame (SF) version, a medium (M) and a large (L) version.
The beavertail backstraps keep large hands clear of the slide and offer more comfortability.
The short frame (SF) version without any beavertail backstrap mounted still remains a complete fully functional frame. Its dimensions are smaller than previous generations.
