Glock 36 Recoil Help

Postby JuniorPre 360 » Wed Feb 06, 2013 10:44 am

I bought my wife a glock 36 for Valentine's day. We went out and shot it last week to see how she likes it. She loves the gun except the bottom part of the trigger guard is giving her pain in her knuckle of her middle finger. I guess the bottom of the guard is slamming her knuckle when she shoots. It didn't bother me but she has small hands. I was wondering what I could do. Are there aftermarket slip on grips or some kind of part that one would reccommend?

Leave the +P ammo alone and get a shooting glove.

Federal std 115gr ball will work for practice with minimal recoil.

Look into putting some archery shelf padding; the kind used for silencing the arrow when hitting the shelf. It had a lil foam padding and can be cut to size. I got some at Gander Mountain. Just a thought

JR, my buddy took a Dremel tool with a sanding drum and shaped that bottom part of the trigger gaurd, you can't tell it's not factory either. That gun went from feeling like crap in my hand to feeling like a glove. I shot it both ways and it made a difference.

Have you checked her on-hand grip? Sounds like she may be leaving a small gap between finger and gaurd? A soft grip and a small gap may be the problem. I would guess the trigger gaurd slap is happening when the pistol returns to full battery...?

We're going shooting this next week. I'll tell er to grip it more firmly. I was thinking it was because of her boney fingers and small hands. But, I'll take than into consideration and see how it goes. We'll work on proper gripping. Thanks!

Careful not to have her choke the crap out of the grip. I would be looking at how high on the grip her hand rests. It should be snug to the frame with no gaps.

Also the grip of her off hand will be similarly important.

Push forward slightly with her on hand. Pull back slightly with her off hand. Then be prepared to be out shot... :lol3:

If you are shooting 230gr loads you may want to step down to one of the 185gr loads and see if that helps.

We haven't taken it out for a while. But she's been working on her grip a little more. We'll possibly get some shooting done this weekend. She still loves the gun for the size of the bullet and the actual gun. The only thing she hates is the trigger pull.

You can get a lighter trigger pretty easy and not very hard to put in.

I saw the polishing trick but she says she'll leave it the way it is.

This is best for the application of self defense... Shoot a lot and get used to it. Remember that Glock has a relatively short trigger reset. Have her try to utilize it. :thumbsup:

I never thought about the short reset. The Glock is a completely new style of pistol to us. We're used to 1911's and a few revolvers. Thanks for the advice

If you reload, try 3.3 grs of VihtaVuori N310 with a 230. Lot of oomph with minimal recoil. Literally, it's like shooting a mid size 40.
