    My preference is for a good stippling job. Slip on or stick on grips just aren't to my liking.

    What do you mean by stippling job?

    I mean someone takes a soldering iron or some other heated device and puts texture right into the frame.

    Lots of companies do the work, but the above website will give you a decent example. The type and design of the texturing differs pretty well by whoever is doing the job...

    How about a cover that puts gen 3 finger grooves on an earlier model?

    Skateboard tape! :thumbup: It is cheap, you can use 3M stair tape as well. Trace the pattern you want to paper, transfer to the backing of the tape, cut it out.... stick it where you need it. I did it, and like it well enough. :laugh:

    +1 for stippling

    Robar, Boresight and Bowie all come to mind. Or if you're brave you can buy a woodburning kit/soldering iron (welen 25 watt works great) and do it yourself. Of course, companies/guys who will do it for you often can do big reductions, beavertail additions etc., and generally their work looks very good while still being functional.

    Do a little googling. Once you've felt a polymer gun that's had the grip worked over nicely (reduced and stippled or just stippled) you'll want some work done.

    I have medium sized hands and for the most part I've never had great results adding material to the grips of any guns. ETA: except for grip tape, which obviously adds no perceptible girth and works very well...

    The "obvious" Hogue slip-on grip works pretty well! I had a second-generation Glock 19 and hated the slippery, wierd-angled grip. The Hogue Handall gave it gentle finger grooves and slight palm-swells that made it fit me very much better, without adding too much width to the grip. I loved it!

    BUT! In spite of being really tight and a great struggle to install, after a long range session on a really hot day (100+) the Handall had slipped WAY out of position and completely threw off my accuracy. So, it can't be trusted on hot days in battle conditions!

    If I still had a Glock I would next experiment with the "A-Grip" textured stick-on grip cover. It is easily Googled, and looks very promising. A lot of Oregon cops are said to use it because it gives good grip in the cold rain and wet. The Glock table at the Portland gunshow always has it on hand.............................elsullo

    So far, so good on my G21. It's been on there a month or two. People use it in competition often, so, it has a rep for staying put.

    I've got Talon Grips on 5 out of my 6 Glocks and really love the feel of them.

    I did my own stippling job on my Glock 23 and love it. It turned out very professional looking. The whole thing took less than 2 hours and that includes a trip to the hardware store for a soldering iron, using a file to make a stippling tip from a brass machine screw, and finally 30 min to stipple the grip. There really is no big mystery about it. Easy as pie once you get past the point of no return.:thumbup: It was so "grippy" that I had to sand it down a little as my shirt would hang up on its velcro like surface. If I was able to open carry, I would left it super "grippy".

    Another vote for TG. I've got them on both of my Glocks and they are great.

    have this on my Kahr P9 and it feels great...fits well, never sticky, doesn't move and adds no bulk. the P9 is my only plastic gun but if I ever get another one, the first thing added to it will be an A grip. I wish they made regular grip panels with it applied for some of my other guns.

    Those poor firearms....

    Get a Gen-4 or a RTF2, they work great as-is :thumbup:
