    Question Opinions on Agrips

    If anyone has used or heard of Agrips please give your opinions. As I understand it, they're made by Brookes Tactical (brookestactical.com) and they stick to your original grips with some sort of adhesive that will peel off without leaving residue behind, if you ever decide to take the Agrips off.

    I've never tried it. Sure sounds great though.

    Finally something better than skateboard tape...maybe.

    Sure thing. I'm going to go ahead and order some and have a range day with my Glock 23. I'll have some feedback and maybe some pictures around mid August.

    I've had them on my Kahr P9 for well over a year. They are pretty much as adverstised. They stick to your existing grips/frame with an adhesive that does not seem to leave any residue. The feel is like you wrapped your gun in velvet, but you do not lose anything in the way of grip between your hand and the gun. What very little shooting I've done with sweaty hands also seems to support their claims. I also personally like their appearance.

    Are there any downsides? Sure. The precut agrips don't seem to exactly fit the gun, and require a certain amount of repositioning and trimming. The second downside is the requirement that the surface you are applying it to be totally free of solvents and oils. The third thing I noticed is after about a year I noticed it was starting to peel away from the parts of the frame that get the hottest.

    Are they worth the price and am I going to replace them? You bet, they make the rough surfaces of my P9 so much better to grip I really can't describe it.

    I put a pair on my p11 about 3 years ago and I really like them.I don't like checkered grips and they really make the gun feel much smoother for me.As the one guy said,they make the gun feel like velvet.Mine are starting to get a little ragged though after 3 years.I guess its time I buy another pair.I will get another set as I like them. sj

    Here's the best price I've found on agrips:

    I just got one in for my USP. I haven't shot with it on yet, but I like it so far. I think it's more like suede leather than velvet, but you get the idea.

    I had them on a P95 for a while. They tend to get slick after a while, and I have heard of them sweating off the black color onto clothing. I finally took them off of my P95, and I hadn't realized how much thickness they add to the grip.

    I ran an A-Grip on a G22 for five years. Yeah, they do lose their "fuzz" over time, but they continue to enhance the grippability of the gun nonetheless. The only problem I had was the leading edge of the A-Grip peeling back while re-holstering. A little trimming of the A-Grip and some extra glue fixed this. After five years, my A-Grip was letting go of the gun grip so I went ahead and took it off (last week) - no glue residue. Don't yet know if I'll replace it. The A-Grip does make handling the gun more friendly. It enhances the grip whether your hand hands are sweaty or if plastic of the gun is cold and slick. The A-Grip does work as advertised and the guy who sells them is a hoot to speak with on the phone. HTH
