Manufacturer Product Information

The GRIP FORCE GEN 123 ADAPTER was developed specifically for GLOCK's GEN 1, GEN 2, and GEN 3 series of pistols.  It eliminates the drawbacks associated with permanent modifications to your factory pistol.  The GRIP FORCE GEN 123 ADAPTER mates completely to the back strap of the GLOCK frame, permitting the shooter's hand to conform to the frame in a more secure manner.  This offers more control and allows the shooter to index the pistol on target more efficiently.

If you are using a GEN 1, GEN 2, or GEN 3 series GLOCK, you can only use one of our GEN 123 ADAPTERS on your pistol.  Both versions of the GRIP FORCE ADAPTER, GEN 123 and GEN 4, can be used on GLOCK’s new GEN 4 series of pistols.

Whatever factory grip configuration the shooter decides to use on their GEN 4 pistol will dictate which GRIP ADAPTER they can utilize on their GEN 4 frame.  Those who choose to use their GEN 4 pistol in its short “SF frame” configuration (with no GEN 4 Medium or Large factory grip panels installed on the frame), should purchase our GEN 4 GRIP ADAPTER.  This ADAPTER, mounted on a GLOCK GEN 4 pistol, will make it index as if it had a more upright back strap/grip angle.  Our GEN 4 ADAPTER is designed to only be used on the "SF frame" of the GEN 4.

Any customer who utilizes the GLOCK GEN 4 factory Medium grip panel on their GEN 4 pistol, must use our GEN 123 ADAPTER over top of the Medium grip.  The GLOCK GEN 4 factory Medium grip panel is designed to configure the grip of the GEN 4 pistol similar to GLOCK’s older GEN 3 series of pistols.  

***Our GEN 4 ADAPTER will not fit over top of this GEN 4 factory Medium grip panel.

Our GEN 123 Adapter on a GEN 3 series (or older) Glock, will index slightly different  than the GEN 4 SF frame/ADAPTER combination.  This slight difference is due to
the shorter front to back dimensions between the standard and SF frames. Our
GRIP ADAPTERS fill in the contour on the back strap of the frame, and create
a flatter area which makes the gun index on target differently.

***Our GEN 123 ADAPTER cannot be installed over top of GLOCK’s GEN 4 factory Large grip panel. 

The increased size of that grip prevents our stock GEN 123 ADAPTER from fitting over top of it.  Some end users have chosen to permanently modify their GLOCK GEN 4 factory Large grip panel, along with our GEN 123 ADAPTER, to use these products together.  In order to do this, they remove material from the underside of our GEN 123 ADAPTER, and contour it to mate it over top of the Large factory grip panel.  They then use epoxy adhesive to permanently affix it to their factory Large grip panel when it is installed on their GEN 4 pistol.  This is the only way one of our GEN 123 ADAPTERS can be used on a GLOCK factory Large grip panel.

Rating gen 1 2 3 gripforce adapter with gen 4 medium back strap.
Fitment is good with the gen 3 adapters with my gen 4, I use the medium back strap with the smooth gripforce that comes in the pack, had to use emery board to file to get right fitment, but not hard to do, should be like this out of box! Overall great product, great company fast shipping very pleased..slide bite taken care of.

Rating Grip Force Adapter for Glock Gen 1, 2, 3:
I have several Glocks, one of which is a Gen 1. I didn’t like the grip so I figured why not. The first thing I noticed with Grip Force Adapter was the quality, very nice! I installed the Grip Force Adapter in just a few minutes, how easy, and it fits like a glove. I held it, fondled it, and manipulated it. I practiced my draws from a couple different holsters. Every time I drew I received that positive grip contact I was looking for with the backstrap, nice and high. The extended tang is sweet and just puts my hand where it needs to go. I then went out back and shot a couple magazines through her. My Gen 1 has now achieved the feel that I was looking for. The Grip Force Adapter on my Gen 1 Glock 17 has helped me get on target a little faster with my follow-ups. I just might need to put these on my Gen 3’s Glock. My duty Glock Gen 4 already has em’. Kudos to Red State Tactical.

Rating Great Upgrade to your Glock!!
I received the package in the mail and checked out a video online on how to install the grip.The grip was very easy to install and really gives the Glock 17 Gen 3 9mm I own a really great fitting back strap and will protect my hand from accidental slide bites.You might get want to a Glock armorer pin take down tool and a small hammer to pop on the pin out to install the grip.

Just received mine in the mail, well before expected arrival. The adapter was an easy installation and fits nicely. The grip seems to give a better purchase on the gun and makes my hand feel more aligned on the gun.

Rating Grip Force Adapter For Glock19 Gen 4
Received exactly what I ordered in a very timely manner. The grip fit perfectly with a very simple installation. The grip allows me the highest grip possible without me worrying that I'm going to get bit. It is a nice addition to the Glock and worth every penny.
