    Im issued a G22 and its a 1st Gen. Over the years the grip is a slippery as my Teflon frying pan. I put on the Hogue grip and got chastised by my Sgt. We arent allowed to have any unauthorized attachments on our side arms.

    Is there a way to make its grip a bit grippier?

    You might be able to take a piece of sand paper and rough up the front and backstrap enough without making it too noticable..

    According to Butch there was never a first generation Glock 22 produced. The only models that were first Generation were 17, 17L, 18 and a small number of Glock 19s.

    Being that the Glock 22's .40 caliber round wasn't even released until 1990 that would put the Glock 22 into the 2nd Generation category.

    Just click on the link and look at the photos/product. Low profile, unobtrusive - unless weapon inspections are a regular occurrence it should go unnoticed. If inspections do happen frequently, I actually use a few small patches of sandpaper like stair tread tape from the home improvement store. That way you can just quickly & quietly peel it off while you move to the back of the line. ;-)

    You may also speak with your supervisor/admin about rewriting policy to authorize an enhancement that improves your control over the weapon.

    Well, you could go to a sport shop and get a can of sticky spray to spray on it, but then it would be sticky, and stuff would stick to it.

    I have a very old G22(GEN2)-It is also quite slippery,Even the checkering is worn down
    I would talk to your superior about something like talon grips or a similar product to try and get it authorized-they work,their cheap, and are durable

    thanks everyone for the advice. Best thing to do is really talk to my SGT and tell him its a concern for my safety. Im just concern that i do put a grip on and G-Forbid i get involved in a shooting they take my G22 and notice the grip. Sure the old saying goes. Rather be Administratively Judge rather than be dead.
