Anyone tried the Tactical Recoil Control Thumb Rest

Was on Amazon and entered P99 to see if anything new showed up. TheTactical Recoil Control Thumb Rest showed up.

For me, that seems like a solution in search of a problem. (I keep my strong hand thumb positioned on top of my support hand thumb, and my initial impression is that something like that would either do nothing for me or interfere with my grip.) For someone accustomed to 1911s who is used to having their thumb positioned there, I can see where it'd have some appeal.

Struck me pretty much the same way, but I thought I'd ask to see if anyone has direct experience because I could be missing some advantage.

The only thing you would be missing is $19.

That thing reminds me of Dumbo.

jlavallee Trouble working and playing with others.
I've actually used the product many years ago on a glock 26 as it was a beavertail style. On that unit I trimmed off the thumb rests and only left the minimal to prevent slide bite. I see no benefit to them.

Almost as ugly and useless as the extended beaver tail on the S&W PPK/S.

What the heck type of pistol grip would that work with - the tea cup grip maybe??

Money much better spent toward a one on one lesson from a pro to learn a proper grip.

Amazing what snake oil devices pop up these days. Those 5 star reviews on Amazon. Me thinks those were from those who dreamed this device up.

Being a 1911 shooter I thought this might prove interesting. However, it seems it would push your hand further down the grip allowing more muzzle flip and less recoil control. I will pass.
