That's great if you want a "three-finger-grooved" temporary accessory. They are made by Houge and can bew found at pretty much any gun store and even big name "All purpose" type stores that carry ammo, but
I find them to be awkward feeling as they slip around when used right out of the box, if taped on they aren't as
bad. I've used them on .44 mags, before my permanent grips were made.
There is a company that will texture the grip for you if you want. They will also mill the grip to give a service or tactical model the grip length of a 45 compact. If anyone is interested I can dig the name up.
There's a few. Robar is the common one that your probably thinking of. Springfield is actually putting a different grip on their new Tactical 9 (third pic) The is also a new one I saw in a handgun mag, but I can't remember the name. I'll look through my old magazines. . .
The reason I chose the decal
grip addition is that its semi-permanent
I can take them off if I ever want to sell the gun (which won't
happen unless it's for another model XD) and buyer doesn't want them or
I may want to have permanent
mods to the frame like a beaver tail and the Robar
treatment. Plus, even though it is only semi
-permanent it feels like part of the gun unlike the slip on grip addition.
No I'm not a decal grip salesman. . . Just throwing my reasoning out there for you folks considering a grip mod. I have used all 3 (Robar was on a Glock and comes in a close second) and the decal is my favorite so far. If it begins to flaw I will report it immediately.
