DIY Glock grip tape job

I just did a DIY grip tape job to my G20 and I have to say is feels great, the tape gives me a better grip and protects the frame from getting scratched, I just found some patterns online that I liked and made my own template, a heat gun, tape, x acto knife, and some patience sure helped. Make sure you cut your stencil out and tape the correct side (think in reverse) to the grip tape to get the correct grip orientation.

This is similar to how I did my G3 35. I cut 3 pcs for the finger grooves and installed them first. Then cut the grips panels, 1 for each side and put them on. The grip panels slightly overwrap the finger strips. All is good, quick and easy.

I use black duct tape, rubber cement and skate tape to do mine. I make mine fit my hand.

DIY Glock grip tape job

Where do you get blank tape?

I use Talon grips on my Gen 3 19. I've thought about making my own.

Made my own grip

out of an MTB inner tube. Cut to the correct size, cleaned it all up with Meguires rubber and vinyl cleaner, it fits very tight on the grip. I used a hole punch to put holes in mine. Just the right added thickness and tackiness to grip.

3M TEK tape at lowes or home depot. you'll find it over around the ladder section. It's safety walk and ladder tread tape. You can get 2" or 4" roll 5yds long.

3M Safety-Walk step and ladder tape. I cut out a patch to match the stippled areas on each side of the gen3 grip. Works great.

It's pretty much equivalent to 80grit. You could sand it down a bit I guess if you needed to, but it beats stippling a worn out Glock. Once it's in your hand it aint goin nowhere that's for sure. The rest of mine are Gen4's so no problem with needing the tape. It's only on my comp gun.

I use hockey tape or tennis racket grip tape. The hockey tape is glue heavy, but the tennis racket tape is like gauze and doesn't get glue all over. Did this to my HK usp .45 compact, and it helped keep a firmer hand while shooting.

I ended up finishing My G23 with a DIY stippling covered in Line X bed liner, It works for me, while it may not work for you:
