do they affect the legendary glock reliabilty do to the fact they use the Pin on the frame to hold them on?

I have one of these on my 21C that I only use for comp.
It gives a slight improvement on muzzle flip, but it also makes it difficult to hit the slide release on a speed reload.
I had to dremmel the dogshit out of it to make releasing the slide using my thumb fast again.
That and I got rid of the wing on the other side entierly, just didn't feel right when I was off-hand shooting.
I have installed these on a couple of friends' guns, they both are 1911'ers, and don't use the slide release anyway.
There were no problems with reliability.

Considering that beavertails were designed to preent hammer bite, and Glocks don't have hammers, I don't see the logic behind a beavertail for the Glock.

they also wrap around the top part of your hand and can help witht he feel of the weapon in your hands and also can help no matter how small with holding mussxle jump down .
go to the link and read and view about them makes sense

might not be everyones taste but i seem to like them

I have one on my 34 that I use for steel plate shoots. You guys seem to be missing the point. This is not designed to give the Glock a beavertail. It is designed with thumb rests for those who use a high handhold grip while shooting. It is meant to give your thumb a place to rest so you do not inadvertently lock your slide to the rear on a loaded mag or to keep you from "unlocking the slide on an empty mag.

I also got rid of the weak side tab. Dug into my trigger finger. Annoying as hell. All in all, I like mine for competition. Would not put one on a carry gun as it will widen the guns imprint.

We aren't missing the point, because the part you are talking about is not a beavertail unto itself. It is actually a form of beavertail with the thumb rest that can be used in a competition capability. A beaver tail for the sake of having a beaver tail on a Glock does not make sense as there is no need for protection from a hammer.

Yeah actually you are. Your so-called beavertail is the part that allows the thumbrests to be mounted to a Glock...the reason for installing one of these. Stick to being an "H53Expert".

By the way... I hope the H53 doesn't refer to that Sikorsky piece of shit helicopter.

That would in fact be the same loud, leaking, stinky, always broke piece of shit that Sikorsky makes. But you know what, even now that I am out, it's paying the bills.
