Believe it or not - its just a piece of a bicycle innertube.

I HATE the hogue grips with finger grooves and palm swells. And ones without that are still too thick - I have tried them all.

This is ugly, but works the best IMHO - Thinnest rubber grips. Makes a huge difference.

Just a cheap 16" bicycle tube at wal-mart lasts years. I have put it on many different polymer guns

Bicycle tube, now thats a cool idea! I'm still partial to the Hogues I've used them on several different guns of mine, But I do like the tube idea, I might have to try that on my Hi-Point carbine.

It's actually a very old Internet gun forum trick. People have done it for years. I have seen it for a long time and didn't care for the way it looked. But damned if it doesn't work better than the hogues
