    Lots of comments circulating around about whether or not the "GP" model AGrip™ will fit the G43 as well as it fits the G42. Some people say it's too small and won't fit.

    Well.... this is the "official" answer to the question:

    Any questions?

    Thanks!

    I want one for my 42 and 26 in a cool color like Blue. I used to have one on a G35 and loved the texture!

    Thanks, Mr Meeseeks! We would LOVE to bring back the colors! People are always asking for the colors, and camo. We can do it, but the only way to get the prices down on it is to get the quantities way up so that it will support the "minimum run" batch size for whatever color.

    Customer demand rules! So the more people that you can get to want whatever color you want, the more likely we can make it up.

    So far camo... like "Multi-Cam" is what we are getting the most requests for... that and some sort of FDE. Oh, and the ladies are always wanting more pink...

    My G29 is about to get a new black one...

    Thanks!

    Alright guys, who is in for Blue in either a G42, G26, or G17. I’d be interested in any of these. Your carry piece would look darn cool, give you lots of grip, and soft blue velvet would rub your stomach as you carried all day!

    I'm going to try this product being unhappy with others like it before.

    It’s in a class unto itself. Literally all the other grips slide off no matter how much prep work I do. I grip the gun HARD. The A grip stays in place, the adhesive is some high tech stuff. The actual material is paradoxically grippy and comfy at the same time.

    ANY models! We make the AGrip material in bulk and then we can cut whatever shapes customers want out of it.

    26 years, now, we've had an unconditional money back guarantee. It's how we stay in business. People don't have to worry about getting ripped off. It's like being able to take advantage of a free trial. It's also why we don't send samples out. The only way to "get AGrip™" is to "get AGrip!™ put one on a gun and take it out and beat the hell out of it... put it through the paces. Follow the easy instructions and it will go on easy and stay on until you want to take it off. Then it will come off easy with no adhesive residue left behind. And they last for years... i've got some on some guns for over 26 years... tools, too... all sorts of stuff. I wrap my fingers with it when i'm grinding knives so i don't either burn my fingers or grind them down. And even with really heavy use they last for at least a few years. It all depends on how hard you are on them... just like anything else. But, AGrip is super tough. You don't have to baby it at all. You just have to kind of learn how to work with it the way it wants to be worked with. It's kind of got a personality.

    Thanks, Mr Meeseeks... that's really great to hear! We have our own proprietary adhesive. It's got super fancy chemistry. Some really big companies WISH they had this adhesive. It's absolutely amazing. If anyone ever has a problem with AGrip sticking; it's not the adhesive that's the problem...... or the fuzzy part... because they are both chemically compatible and the AGrip Adhesive is ideal for Glock frames. And the really cool thing is that it's super forgiving so it's not a pain to peel off even decades later.

    I’ve got the A grip on (7) Glocks now. I’ve found for sweaty hands this is the answer. I’ve lost up to 8# during a day at a match and this suede covering keeps the grip in your hand.

    I’m a fan of black so cannot help you Mr. Meeseeks although I am asking questions about the Glock 42.

    I've thought about trying this on my G26.5 or my G19X, but I've been leery about anything that would eventually come off and leave the grip sticky. I had to use a Hogue slip-on for my G43 because the darn thing is so small I kept losing it in my palm...

    With the good words from Mr. Meeseeks and Rocky7, I'll be placing an order for one shortly to give them a try. I don't put too much stock into what most people say, but when those guys talk about what they do with their competition guns, I listen.

    Unfortunately, Mr. Meeseeks, I'm not a fan of blue on my pistols. I'm in for black or olive drab though.

    7 AGrip's? Thanks! We love you, too! I'm actually amazed at how many AGrip's people buy throughout their lives and then, also, the stories they all tell. I just chatted with a customer last night, a General in the US Army, that bought a gun with an AGrip already on it from a GlockTalker here... and he's had it for a while... and he loves it, so now he's getting a few more... and one, especially for his Freedom Arms .454 for a big hunt he's going on. He asked how well the AGrip would help tame the .454? I told him the .454 would not shift or change position in his hand at all when he fired it... but, of course, that it would kick... and we both had a good laugh. I told him it would turn his .454 into a *****cat and that he'd be able to shoot it about as fast as a double action... fast. Big claims..... we'll see what stories he comes back with. Can we have a drum roll, please?

    Thanks, WheelsUp!

    Question; The Hogue kept coming off the G43 into the palm of your hand when you were shooting??? Or am i reading that wrong?

    Competition guns are one thing; Combat guns are another... but, there is a crossover... same also for Hunting guns... they all crossover each other. But, you want to set up your gun for it's primary purpose. A really good Combat setup can be smoke'n hot fast in competition. Combat itself is competition, but, the competition shooter usually take a completely different approach and so will go with super light loads, fancy equipment, etc., that really would get in the way many if not most combat situations.

    As for those colors; One more vote for Olive Drab! YAY!!! That is one of the top colors people ask for. I can also take that color and add other colors and make camo with it. Tan, FDE, Olive Drab, Gray, Purple, Pink, Blue.... and i need to know which blue; Royal Blue, Worn Levi's Blue, Electric Blue?

    Don't you have to cut out around the mag release?

    No... not at all. Actually, it works better with it covered. The button is easier to push, but less likely to get bumped and drop the mag unintentionally. It protects your hand if the gun ever kB's... and it's just more comfortable. I actually take the corners and edges off my buttons before i cover them. Way better. But, some people just "got" to cut around them, so, hey, whatever works best. People should always use whatever works best for them. If questioned about it i always tell people to try them the way they are and then change it later if you don't like it. Simple. For the pin in the rear; just simply put a tiny hole in the AGrip material right over the end of the pin with some sort of sharp pointy nail or whatever and do it on both sides. Then push the pin through the hole and out. Wiggle the pin back into the AGrip and then back into the frame hole and drift it home. Then simply close up the holes in the AGrip by pushing it closed with the nail or whatever. Easy... and the holes visually disappear. But i don't poke any holes in the AGrip unless i really need to.

    Thanks for asking!

    My approach to Competition was to use my guns for carry and competition. My reloads were to load to the max of powder and emulated my carry loads.

    Having a grip that allowed acquisition and control yet still fast with the draw was my concern. About 10 years ago I woke up and realized to really test myself was to shoot hot loads. The A Grip helped in getting there especially in Steel Challenge.

    How careful do you have to be with cleaning materials?

    10 minutes with some paper towels and some isopropyl alcohol has always worked for me. I personally cut out a hole for the mag release, just my preference. Super easy and forgiving. You can unpeel and reposition and the grip still holds tight!
