    Dreaded Glock Knuckle

    Not for sure if this is the right place to post but I just did some extensive shooting with the G23 and I believe I have the Glock Knuckle. Is there anything that can be done without permanently modifying the pistol's trigger guard? Would the aftermark beavertails help?

    I know exactly what would work...By a M&P.....

    The grips extensions may help. I have a friend that put a different size on and it solved the issue.....

    As a lawyer, I smell "class action" law$uit!!

    How's your emotional state? Are you in distress? Any "loss of consortium?" (that's a big one).

    Did Glock warn you about the Glock Knuckle?

    Does your knuckle look like that of a Goblin's?

    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    I have to admit I never have had that problem with the M&P.

    To be serious here[I can be sometimes], I had that problem with my 22+23 and high round count usage. Taking some fine emery cloth to the underside of the trigger guard fixed it for me. YMMV
    The raised "parting line" left by the molding process would wear me bloody after 300-500 rds. HTH
    Oh yeh? Well this was sent from the scary black electrical box under my desk, so there!

    I had a grip reduction and some other work done on my G30 last year. It was done by Cold Bore Custom.
    Great work. Not looking to get flamed, just stating my experience if interested.

    Glock knuckle



    It's partially a software issue. First make sure you're gripping the gun (whatever gun it is that you're using, it doesn't have to be a Glock to cause this problem) properly and not over-gripping, as DRM noted.

    If you are still having the problem, it's then a hardware-software issue: that your physical anatomy just doesn't quite fit the gun. In this case, pursuing grip-related modifications to the gun becomes the definitive solution.

    I don't have "Glock-knuckle." For me, the standard Glock grip and surfaces, while I find somewhat awkward feeling subjectively, actually fits pretty well.

    I'm an XDm shooter, but there's an area of the trigger-guard on the XDms that hits the middle of the middle phalanx of my middle finger just right, and has, over the years, given me a very focused little callous there.
