TANDEMKROSS’s “Accelerator” Thumb Ledge is a perfect example of the age old principle: the best solution is often the simplest solution. The “Accelerator” Thumb Ledge is designed to fasten directly to 1913 Picatinny or Weaver underbarrel rails.
Many pistols have accessory rails on the frame or otherwise below the barrel for installing various lights or lasers. These accessory rails create the perfect location for securely anchoring the “Accelerator.” This simple method of installing an additional contact point for your support hand also creates some room for adjustability on pistols with rails featuring multiple cross slots.

Thumb rests, thumb ledges, or “Gas Pedals” are very popular and effective ways of managing recoil for pistols in the world of shooting sports. Attending a Rimfire Challenge, Steel Challenge, SASP, or Metal Madness match is a sure way to see some version of a thumb rest out in the wild.
Many of the solutions that exist for thumb rests today serve their purpose well, but are designed to only support one specific model or type of pistol. Additionally, some of those options require permanent modifications to your firearm that demand a great deal of time, skill, money, or all of the above. Such operations render your favorite pistol now incapable of ever being restored to factory conditions.
The “Accelerator” Thumb Ledge supports virtually any and all pistols with picatinny accessory rails in front of the trigger guard and below the barrel. With this extreme versatility, the possibilities for compatibility are practically endless! So long as your pistol has an accessory rail below the barrel that conforms to standard 1913 pitcatinny or even Weaver rail specs, the “Accelerator” should work for you. Plus, if you try it and find it’s not a perfect fit for you or your pistol, you’re protected by TANDEMKROSS’s hassle-free guarantee!
