    Well I had a set of gen 3 glock 19 grips and a gen 4 glock 19 so I got to experimenting, and this is what I cam up with.

    required items
    glock gen 4 ( proven on 19 may work on full or compact as well)
    medium back strap
    cutting tool ( dremel is what I used)
    gen 5 jentra plug with screw.

    ok first step grab your cutting tool and medium back strap. cut the back strap at the top right above the stippled texture lines.

    step 2 install ct grip with provided pin

    step 3 slide jentra plug into place for use with a back strap do not install the screw yet( refer to included instructions)
    step 4 slide back strap under ct grip and snap onto bottom of gun
    step 5 install jentra plug screw ( this will keep the back strap from sliding out under fire)

    step 6 go zero your girps!

    Good to know I thought the front mount models would fit fine, this guides for rear activated rear mounted.
  6. What brand and where did you get that laser trigger guard?

    Yeah,sorry.I actually prefer the Lasergrip over the Laserguard except for this one.I normally remove the Lasergrip before training or the range on my 37 and 30,But this is what I carry everyday so I didn't want to train with a different grip which is why I got the laserguard.Unlike the Lasergrip the Laserguard has an on/off switch.
