Default Talon grips

It seems like its such a small accessory to add to a pistol. At the se time is there really a marked difference when applied? I am looking to add it to a Beretta Nano which is a sub-compact frame pistol. It's cheap enough as well but the question is does it perform better than the checkering or stippling that already exists on grips or frames from the manufacturers?

Thanks.

I picked up these for my wife and my Shields. Much easier to maintain my grip. Does make a more comfortable grip as well.
That's just my experience.

Well worth the investment on guns that don't have a great grip on it from the factory. I have them on my glock 30 & my kahr cm9. My Sig does not need them. I picked the sand paper grip instead of the rubber because that is how the feel is on my sp2022. The sand paper grip makes you feel like nothing can make the gun come out of your hand.

Did you go with the rubberized or the sand grit version?

Rubberized on both. They still make a noticable difference on grip.

Putting grip tape on my pistol seems...odd. That said I might swing by a sporting goods store and pick up 5 dollars worth and try it out. I bet I can get enough to do two pistols

Well grip tape is like sandpaper right? Talon makes that but that also make a rubberized version. Also they completely wrap around the entire grip as are customized to your specific firearm all that for $18.

As you apply it you actually apply and remove as part of the process to help with the adhesive. I had the same concern and didn't think I would like any grip on it. They fit so well and make drawing the weapon easier along with less adjustments during follow-up shots that I didn't look back. Even though it sticks really well, it can be peeled off with a little time working at it once it has set.

The custom fit is tight.
