    My rubber talon grips came in the mail today. I immediately put them on the G30SF that I ordered them for. I like the feel thus far. Going to the range tomorrow morning to put a hundred or so rounds through it for a test drive. here are a couple of pics.

    Look good, I ended up putting a set that were made for 27 on my 30SF, I just wanted the piece on the back strap bigger than what they offer for the 30, I have the rubber ones on my 23,27 and 30, have a set of the grit ones but just not sold on the feeling of them yet...

    Lyodbraun,

    I have rubber decal grips on my G20SF and I like them, but wanted to try the Talon grips to see how they work. My Gen 2 G23 has a Hogue Handall on it and I like it also, but the 20SF and 30SF are too big for my hands with a slip on grip.

    I see what you mean about the back strap. Do you have any pics of the set made for the 27 on your 30SF?

    I have installed the rubber Talon grips on all my gen 3 glocks & M&P's. Hell I even bought a set for the M&P that I'm planing to buy. I love them, I don't put them on my gen 4's though. The gen 4's have a good grip from the start.

    Ron,

    You might want to try the new Tuff1 slip on grips they work very well and give a great grip and dont add the bulk like the others out there....

    No. The rubberized style give a little cushion feel. IMHO

    Not really, I had a buddy double wrap (use 2 on one gun) and it didnt feel like much more at all. The rubber slip on grips Hogue, Lone Wolf, Pachmayr will feel more thicker than the Talon, the rubber grips arent really that much thicker either except the Hogue feels the thickest out of the bunch.

    Cushioning is correct. I like the rubberized versions better than the sandpaper.

    I tried the rubberized decal grips too. Though they are fine, I prefer the talons. And no, they do not add to the grip size.

    Check out traction grips. Hardly know they're there and great price.

    I don't like the looks, but Glocks aren't supposed to be pretty anyway.

    they look a hell of a lot better than stippling....and when you shoot in the summer heat and start sweating, the sand Talon Grips make a world of difference. and no, i dont have little girly sissy hands. talon grips are the first addition to any Glock for me.

    Just got mine in the mail today. I got the rubberized ones. I have the Hogue grips on mine now. Absolutley love them but my last trip to the range after shooting 200 rounds they had started to shift sideways. Will try the Talon Grips, and switch back to the Hogue's if not satisfied. By the way I've had the Hogue's on for a year and a half and installed them upside down:wow:

    Harleytech,

    No disrespect to you, but my Glocks are tools of my trade. Although I, like you, like my handguns to look good, functionality is numero uno. In a hot sweaty environment, or God forbid bloody, I want the extra little bit of tackiness that the add on grips provide. In the good old days (mid 80's to early 90's) when we had to carry revolvers, I always had a Pachmayr or Hogue grip on it.
