Never heard of it either. What does it claim to do?

Everyone's hands are slightly different, and some folks tend to end up gripping a bit high up. If the slide is riding on your thumb knuckle during recoil a beavertail acts as a hand stop to force your grip lower. My natural grip is low enough to be clear of the slide, so I don't need one. But if your losing skin, it might be better than wearing bandaids all the time.

The GRIP FORCE ADAPTER provides several elements to aid the shooter in maximizing their performance. The lower section of the adapter fills in the contour
on the back strap of the GLOCK pistol. This adjusts the effective grip angle of the pistol in relation to the bore axis. Some shooters prefer this area to be flatter, so it conforms to their firing hand better. This offers them more control and feel as they are firing the pistol. This also enhances the pointability of the pistol, specifically in the way in which it indexes on target. It improves sight acquisition during presentation and subsequent follow up shots. It also puts the shooter's wrist in a different position. For some shooters, this new wrist position creates a stronger shooting platform. This aids the shooter in driving the pistol directly onto target.

The extended grip tang protects the webbing of the firing hand. It also allows the shooter to drive their hand as high as possible on the back of the grip, without fear
of it coming in contact with the slide. This helps guide the user in forming the proper shooting grip, especially when drawing from a holster. The underside of this extended grip tang is also utilized by the firing hand to gain leverage over the pistol. When the wrist is locked properly, and the firing hand is stabilized, the added length of the grip tang helps secure the pistol in the hand. This aids the shooter in controlling the pistol during rapid firing.

The enhanced grip texture on the back strap of the adapter also helps lock the pistol in the shooter's grip. The harder the shooter grips the pistol, the more effective the grip texture becomes. This further improves the shooter's ability to control the weapon. When used properly, these design elements help the shooter achieve maximum control over the pistol. This equates to less wasted motion while shooting, and the potential for faster and more accurate shots.
There are a few threads on this already. I'm considering one, just to see...for $27, if it helps at all, it'll be worth it.

I picked one up to eliminate the race tracks on my right hand webbing, as I shoot with a high tang grip. Works great, positive purchase on frame when I unholster, solid hold while shooting. I would recommend for those with huge trucker mitts like I have.

Will do.
I was reading another forum and one person modified their's for the beaver tail only. Chopped off plastic from the bottom, sanded down the ridges.
