    I know after you remove the screw, you slide the grip off in a C shaped motion towards the trigger, but I can only get the grips to budge about 1/16-1/8 of an inch. WTF?

    Hogue Goncalo fingergrooves. I was wanting to put the Hogue rubber fingergrooves on them for awhile.

    They run on a track on my Smiths. You really do have to pull pretty hard to get them started off. They have to get over the little nubs that hold them "straight".
