    Glock has already manufactured a projection on the newly manufactured frames to block the installation of the Glock Switch or a "Glock switch like back plate". There is NO reason to remove it other than to install a switch.
    Removal of the backplate is necessary to maintain/clean (for example) the firing pin and firing pin block safety. Perhaps an illustration would clear up this seeming conflict.
    There are two kinds of guns. Those I have acquired, and those I hope to.

    The anti-gun fetishists tried that a few decades back, with the manufactured hysteria over "undetectable plastic guns". Then most police departments started using them, after aggressive marketing by Glock.

    There's still a statute somewhere that I believe outlaws all-plastic guns, but I'm too lazy to look it up.

    I'd remove the shit out of it just cause it pisses me off.

    I have not seen it yet, but I believe what ar15jules is saying, is that you can remove the back plate, but the projection prevents adding anything other than the unmodified, OEM style back plate.

    I imagine the "projection" can be filed off.

    The Left relies entirely on deception and force.

    I personally like the ability to fire the round in the chamber if I have to, while doing a magazine reload.

    Just curious. Will the pistol Stop firing if the trigger is released, or is it "runaway"?

    So they're not just the product of U.S. home based businesses anymore. Shall we send China a 'thank you' card?
