    Anyone recommend grips that will cover the awkward imprint/grooves of the Glock? In particular I am looking for a solution on the Glock 19. Anything that will smooth or round out the grooves so that it does not protrude so much and make it more ergonomically comfortable would be great. Thanks.

    Bicycle innertube might work. Cheap, too. Spray a little hairspray underneath--it'll help get it on initially, and when it dries, the hairspray will help keep it in place as well.

    If it's a range/comp gun, TruGrip seems to work well.

    thanks bam bam. what i'm essentially looking to accomplish is to remove the grooves, without actually pulling out the sandpaper or buying a gen 2 glock 19 :) do you like the feel of Hogue Handall grips? I'm looking for something to put over the grip so that basically the grooves are negated.

    That issue has been covered repeatedly on this forum. From what I have read you are out of luck with finding a slip on piece that will negate the finger grooves. If you search you will find a long thread on one shooter's efforts to remove the "bumps" on his newer Glock.

    I've actually used tennis grip tape. It does its job.

    Maybe you should consider not gripping too much on the reciever. This has been my observation.

    do the hogue grips help with improving the feel of the gun? i would guess it absorbs a slight (very slight) bit of felt recoil as well.

    Hogue grips are more effective for shooters with big hands. But Hogues need to be changed every so often since they lose their elasticity.

    a Bastard file does a great job.
