    Grip textures for Glock Gen3 mimicking Gen4?

    So I picked up my new Glock 27 Gen 4 and I'm spoiled by the grip. I really do think Glock got it right with the texturing (even if I do prefer a 1911 grip angle).

    Anyway, my duty weapon is a Glock 21SF. I love it and it fits my hand great but I wish it had different texturing, particularly on the sides.

    What grip adhesives are most similar to the gen 4 in terms of a balance between good grip but not too rough? I thought about getting Falcon grips but wasn't sure about which one to get. Thanks.

    Not sure any are similar to Glock grips. I put Talon Grips on my Gen 3 G26, 19 and 30sf and used the rough-textured finish. Like skateboard tape. I really like the rough surface. But I sanded them down a bit because they were so rough that they would catch my cover shirt and make it stick up.

    You could try the rubberized talon grips. I traded for a G34 a while back and the guy had put some on there, they're fairly grippy but they won't catch on your clothing or be really rough on your hands.

    I think it's the only texture (besides rubber) they offered. I only remember the two and I was trying to replace some rubber sleeves I had that kept moving around. The rough appealed to me and I'm glad I did it.

    I suppose the Gen 4 texture may be better to some, but I've never had a grip issue with my Gen3 Glock 30 here in hot, humid, sweaty south FL. I do think the interchangeable back straps improves the fit over a wider range of hand sizes.

    I am currently running grips from Tractiongrips. I like the textured rubber. They provide grip without grabing my shirt or grinding my skin.
