Hi,
Thought I would try one of these on my 10mm.

I like checkering or stippling on my auto pistols, but...

Did not want to do that on this one.

I admittedly shortened the bottom for the Magwell, and...

Rounded any corners that had sharp points for better longevity.

Heated the Grips after install to flatten better, and...

Really like the results, better material than regular Skateboard Tape, and...

Has cuts where needed for any low spots.

Another good thing is they come off easy when needed and clean up with some cleaner and back to new.

Hi,
Just bought a XDm-45 on another Forum and ordered another Grip from same company but this one is sandpaper instead of rubber.

Want to see the difference, between the two...

I sold my Glocks years ago and swore off of Striker-Fired Pistols, but...

These XDm's, get under your skin, great pistols, with a lot of aftermarket support now.

Hi,
If you want "comfy" and no abrasion on your clothes get the rubber...

If you want "sticky" get the sandpaper.

I have the rubber on the 10MM and will put the sandpaper on the .45 to try both, but...

That's the way I see it!

The best price I could find was Amazon...

Hi,

Well, was so impressed by my XDm-Elite 10mm, started looking for a used XD-45 and found a nice XDm!

Wanted to try the Sandpaper Grip from Handleitgrips, so just installed those on the .45...

Seemed not to lay down as easy as the rubber on the Elite, but is fine.

I have a HK P2000sk, for concealed carry, so this will be truck gun or night stand, so no problem with clothing abrasion.
