    Was wondering for those who have and use the hogue grip on the 43, does the finger groove feel uncomfortable?

    Or does it fit snug?

    I have small hands. Wondering if it would line up comfortably or be awkward feeling.

    I have a sleeve for my 19 and although I liked it, I went with talons on everything.

    I believe it makes it easier to grip. It fits the grip very snug. A pain to get on

    Yeah tell me about it lol

    It was a ***** to get off my 19 at the time. Getting it on was just as rough.

    The reason I’m thinking to get one is bc I remember with the other one it seemed to add slight width.

    Since the frame is so slim I think it would make the grip even better.

    Definitely adds width.

    I have one for my 42 (one size fits both I believe). I do not like the finger groove hump as it presses my finger into the trigger guard. If you have thinner fingers you'll probably be okay.

    I love the beavertail, and the texture is great. Takes some work to put on, very SNUG.

    I tried the Hogue HandAll on my 43 for a month or so. I found it provided for very comfortable grip. I just wasn't crazy about the added thickness, so I've since removed it.

    Was the added thickness more like a standard G26 sort of feel?

    How would it compare if it does at all?

    I have grips for the 43, I’m just wondering if the hogue is worth entertaining?

    Been using mine for years. Would not not want to be without it. Even keep a spare.

    Are you sure your slide cover plate is fully engaged?

    Hogue grips are great but,... they do ad a little thickness. The Traction grips are great as well. They are self stick grips and they STAY in place. Both are under 10 bucks. I recommend both. Good luck.

    I've had one on mine for way longer than I thought I would.
    Definitely added some width, as seen by pictures some have already posted. I *think* I have medium sized man hands (When I get gloves they're usually between medium and large sizes depending on brand) and it works just fine with my hand.

    It's been nice but I think I'm going to go back to a Brooks A Grip like I had planned on doing ~a year ago.

    As inexpensive as it is, I do believe it's worth a try. As they say, "your mileage may vary". My 26 and 27 (both Gen 4) are exactly what came to mind, although, we're only talking about the grip portion. You still maintain the lighter weight and slim slide for concealment.

    OP: I really like The Hogue Handall on my 43 but I am also sure that some won’t. You really need to try for yourself.

    Interesting, but totally unnecessary...
