    I just installed a Hogue Handall grip on my generation 2 Glock 21. I wanted finger grips without having to upgrade to a generation 3. Here is the secret of how to do it:

    Two Ibuprofen about one hour prior to beginning, lots of patience. A little cussing helps. I have never seen a snugger fit in my lifetime. There is an "after" picture provided. Due to shortsightedness on my part there never will be a "before" picture.

    Edit: OK. I misspelled "Hogue" in the title. It was due to fatigue.

    lol, I can relate!
    bout 2 yrs ago I decided to slip on a "slip on" with 2 of my pistols..

    While they are a pita to get on, and seem to stay stable for a few months of rigorus shooting... now neither of my pistols have the grips on..
    after a bit of break-in, they are quite litteraly BROKE IN ime.... they move around in rapid fire, shirts hang up on them... I found myself re-adjusting the grips after each mag at the range..

    while I handle 9mm primarily, and for the pistols I use the grips on, I found Id rather have a solid grip on an allready mild load, than compramise may CC, or the grip of my firearm. over tring to make a mild load milder...

    just diddnt add up for me in my situations..

    She didn't speak to me for days--the words I'd used, combinations that would've taught a drunken sailor, a thing or two about cussing.

    But I shot her... Oh, I shot her...

    And now, she's my baby again! :)

    My G21 fits me fine. But this G17 felt a bit skinny!


    P.S. The hairspray works! ;)

    The easy button...

    Start with a couple’a drops of dishwashing liquid in the palm of your hand.
    Add a drop or two of water.
    Mix ‘till greasy.
    Rub light coating on the inside of (insert brand name here) grip.
    Slip on and position.
    Let dry.

    No muss, no fuss.
    Glues in & stays put.

    I learned this w/ building bikes & installing grips -- a hair dryer to make the grip a little more pliable and a little hair spray. The spray works as lube to slide on the grip & when it dries, it becomes tacky so it stays in place better too! ;)

    Does it matter what type of hairspray (i.e., aerosol) ?

    Do you have color treated hair? ;)

    I don't think so. The cheap stuff in the aerosol cans dries faster.
