I custom cut and installed some Agrip to my daugther's M&P40. Cutting to the proper shape is a challenge, but I managed.
Some think that this is a strange thing to do to a grip. But after holding the gun with this applied, the general reaction is "wow". I've tried Hogue and other rubber grips, and will never go back to them after using this material. (Not a paid advert. Just really like it.)
The feel is less soft than a Hogue type grip. It is like an extremely fine suede on a stretchy substrate with adhesive. So there is a very thin layer of cushion.
There is absolutely no slipping with this my hand. I agree with the maker's claim that the grip increases as my hands accumulate moisture. My older rubber grips got more slippery with increased moisture. Also, my skin cannot handle extended use of sand-paper on the grips.
The first application of Agrip was on my XD40 for CCW. I had it on at least a year before removing it (for a trip to Dan Burwell). So it was plenty durable for me.
The only drawback at this point is that you must create your own template on the M&P40. Brooks Tactical Systems is willing to create a pattern for Agrip, but they are having a hard time getting their hands on a M&P.
i had an agrip on my sigma, and i loved it. great when u have sweaty hands.. its water proof, but it can become very dirty looking colecting lint along its edges where the adhesive is push out. i love the stuff and its pretty cheap
I ran one on a G22 for almost five years. The "fur" was flat worn off. I finally took the thing off and decided I that it was unnecessary. After shooting the naked Glock, I quickly remembered why I AGripped it to start with. It enhances the grip whether the plastic is cold or your hands are sweaty. It really does work.
I had some issues with the upper leading edges peeling back. These leading edges would catch on the holster. I trimmed them back and glued them with pretty good glue and now I'm good to go.
