    I have tried the gripe-tape approach, and the Hogue grip-sleeve as well. Neither of the aforementioned products met all of my needs in their own right. I have considered trying the AGrip, but haven't taken the plunge just yet. I have seen other rubber grip sleeves (flat, no finger grooves, & thin) that ensure a positive no-slip grip under any conditions, but I don't know who makes them or where I can find them? I need something that can be worn in the open (for duty use that won't hang on my clothes), yet can also be worn concealed. I like the thin profile of the gripe tape and the security of the Hogue, but the grip tape hangs and wears on clothing and the Hogue is too thick. Any helpful information is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Be safe yall.

    I use a rubber bicycle inner tube cut to length. Thin, no grooves, cheap....what else could you ask for.

    i use the pachmyr and i like them alot, they are not as thick as the hogue and are available with or without finger grooves. if thickness is your main concern do a search on bicycle innertube, you might be surprised.

    Thanks yall. The bicycle inner-tube gets the vote, and I'm sure they are cheaper than the AGrip that was next on my list. What size inner-tube do I buy for a Glock 23/19? Thanks again. Be safe.

    I use the smaller innertube..Seems like 1.75...It fit's really tight...Oh and don't forget to turn it inside out....Fewer visible seams...

    i have the Agrip on my G27, and i love it. It has very good grip even when wet. it feels great. before i put the Agrip on i use to use the grip extensions for comfort. with the Agrip it is just as comfortable without the extensions..

    I also use a bicycle inner tube. Works great if your hands are slippery, only takes a minute to remove or reinstall.

    I think they get more tacky (sticky) with age too.

    on my 23 with the finger grooves i cut my tube in 3 sections of about 1 1/4'' each and put them in the grooves. that has worked well for me and its alot easier to put on. the bike tube is IMO the best balance for grips. i just put them on my new 27 also and works great on it also.

    AGRIP is great on the heavy hitters--like my G20.

    For the rest--inner tube.
    Use a hole-punch on tube to give it texture if you wish.

    Try the Butler Creek "Universal Slip On"..........It was designed by
    Craig Spegel.

    Good Luck!

    Bike inner tube here, too. What's nice is that you can tailor it any way you want, like this:

    just grabbed a pair of talon grips on g30 - has made a huge difference in the feel of the grip. Like it so much I ordered another pair for my g23.

    would agree on the Talon Grips, they're excellent. but a free inner tube is a great starting place also.

    Quality info coming in. Thanks yall. I think I'm gonna give the inner-tube a whirl. I may also grab up an AGrip to try on another weapon for comparison. Thanks again everyone. Be safe.

    +1 million on the innertube. I've had the same 24" innertube for several years, and many Glocks have worn a portion of it... I've still got over half of it remaining.
