This is Doc’s dream come true; easy self-defense for everyone. No longer just a dominating technique for expensive Race pistols, it’s a drop-in part that makes it much easier to shoot hot loads, even for those without strong hands. Very easy to learn, repeatable, reliable, and accurate.

The OPP Grip concept has been proven in Racing, having dominated National and World Championships.

The OPP Grip is much easier to learn than traditional methods. Just put your off hand thumb on the Gas Pedal and squeeze.

It’s that simple.

No need for ankle deep brass in practice.

Before it was a Racer; now, it comes for a carry gun.

This model is for the Sig P320, the pistol adopted by the US Military. No gunsmithing. It can be installed in a couple of minutes or less by replacing the takedown lever. Other models for other pistols are on the way.

CNC billet milled out of 4140 RH 32, Black Nitride coating.

Adds only about .250″ to width of gun compared to stock, and fits holsters like Uncle Mikes Sidekick (Padded), Comp-Tac, and Compact Blackhawk CQC retention Holster number 2100344, even with Romeo sight. More holster listings on the way.

    $60 for a chunk of steel? I’m not sure I’m down with OPP.

    1. avatar Joel says:

      Glad we got that joke out of the way….on the first comment no less! 😂

      1. avatar Marcus (Aurelius) Payne says:

        Not that you had to be told, but that’s really the only reason I connected on this.

  2. avatar Bud Harton says:

    and this fits in existing holsters ……….how?

  3. avatar D says:

    So this is a device to stop the slide from locking back on an empty mag???

    1. avatar Juice says:

      It replaces the takedown lever, not the slide release. It’s a shelf for your off-hand thumb to get some leverage on, to help control recoil.

  4. avatar Juice says:

    I’d be willing to try it once they make one for a gun I own. I’ll keep my eye on it.

  5. avatar txJM says:

    Hell no.

    For $15, sure. But not $60.

  6. avatar JD says:

    This is so gay.

    1. avatar Jeremy D. says:

      You would know…

  7. avatar Michael in AK says:

    I wanted a cup holder, not a thumb rest!!!

  8. avatar Dr Chet says:

    Thanks for comments so far. It is not “just a hunk of metal” it is made of high quality 4140 RH 32 heat treated steel billet CNC milled. It is very difficult part to machine which accounts for the cost. Also it will easily pay for it self in reduced amo training costs not to mention the fun factor. The real point is it will make self-defense much easier in stressful environments. How much is your life worth? Fits Many Holsters without mods Including Uncle Mikes, Blackhawk, and Comp-Tac. More holster listings on the way. Does not affect hold back on empty or any other function.

      What about for the M&P shield, or the new M&P 2.0 compact……I might be interested. How fast are you going to come out with gadgets for the other gun models?

      1. avatar dr chet says:

        XD 2.0 is next up

    Too bad I’m left handed.

    1. avatar RogUinta says:

      Yep. “Hey, I know, let’s ignore 10% of our customer base!”

  10. avatar DapperGunsmith says:

    I see the use for it. I would rather pay for the good materials and machining. It seems to be a common trend on here that everyone wants cheap parts… so go ahead and buy the parts made of that magical “mystery steel” and tolerances that “may fit”. So I say for the millionth time, not having it in your budget is not an excuse to trash talk it. Show some class and at least pretend to be pro-gunstuff.

    1. avatar 16V says:

      Meh. Utility for a non-race gun is, well, debatable at most generous.

      I do agree with your point that quality matters (and costs). However, the business reality is that it is incumbent on the businessman to convert that doubter. Or at least, sell everyone near them.

      Very few people saw the utility of a TRS-80 back in 1977, especially as the $500 it cost is about $2100 in 2018 dollars. Now, you can get a full-blown computer for (far) less than I paid for a 4 function TI-2500 ($120) or about $500 in today cash.

  11. avatar raptor jesus says:

    I’m leery as to whether this will work with the custom molded kydex holster I have . . . . $60 to find out?

  12. avatar Billy Bob says:

    How about a universal part fitting most pistols then a rubber type slip on for a grippy form fitting thumb brace, or something like that if I’m making any sense. I’m sure you’ll all let me know.

  13. avatar Gabe says:

    One of the reasons that I bought the P320 when it first came out was the nice oversized takedown lever. Then Sig redesigned it because people bitched. So I have one of the early big ones and it awesome for recoil management. This new lever looks even bigger and is tempting but not for $60.

  14. avatar Dr. Chet says:

    Thanks for additional comments. About price. If we could make it cheaper we would, but we have no failure policy and with over 10,000 parts of other designs, never a failure. It’s a high quality part. About whether it works or not, the market will decide but so far the reports from shooters has been awesome. Next up is XD which is almost ready for production. We MIGHT have a Left handed version for Sig if the market demands it. Thanks for Dapper’s comments, he is right cheap mystery metal is not something you want to stake your life on. Unfortunately, it is simply impossible to make a universal part for modern pistols. Gabe’s comments resonate, I have heard a lot of folks wanting the original take down lever and it is very hard to find. About 16v’s comment, If you are happy and have mastered your traditional grip this might not be for you. He is right, it is debatable but early reports look like debate will be settled in favor of the OPP grip

    1. avatar raptor jesus says:

      What about fitting into our existing molded kydex holsters?

  15. avatar Cory C. says:

    I shot a gun with a similar product and it was an absolute game changer.

    Please make one for the HK VP9. I’ll pay double, I believe in the product so much.

    1. avatar dr chet says:

      Thanks for the comment. A lot of folks agree with you, the OPP grip is a game changer.
      GoGun USA has been saying that for years and folks are just now starting to catch on.

  16. avatar Christopher Cole says:

    Southpaw P320 owner here. I just signed up for GoGun’s emails hoping you’ll end up making one for us wrong handed types.

  17. avatar Wayne P says:

    I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical about the GoGun gas pedal for the SIG P320 at first. I originally got it for my X5, because the stock take-down lever did nothing but get in the way, being directly under the natural position for my off-hand thumb rest. I love everything else about the P320 series, but the awkward take-down lever almost made the X5 my only P320 purchase. The stock lever feels like an inconsistent lump, not anything that facilitates a consistent grip placement. I have access to a machine shop, and even doing it myself, which I considered, would have cost me more than $60 if I had it heat-treated and plated with something corrosion resistant. For those reasons, I gave the GoGun a try, and I have been very happy with the results. Not only does it provide a good index for a consistent off-hand grip, but applying a little lateral pressure with my left thumb definitely reduces the felt recoil and muzzle flip, giving me noticeably quicker second shots with the confidence that the muzzle is on target. It works so well, I bought a P320 Carry, but only because I knew I could get another GoGun gas pedal for it. As far as holster fit, it fits without any interference in my Comp-Tac, but that’s more of a competition rig, with a generous gun cavity. I have a Blade-Tech IWB for my P320 Carry, and the gas pedal makes the gun fit a little too snug in that. I’m considering reducing the overall height slightly of the one on the Carry, which would probably be enough for a good fit for the Blade-Tech, or I may go the other way and either get a good leather IWB holster or take the time to find a Kydex one with a slightly larger slot for the take-down lever. Regardless of what I end up with, the handling improvement is definitely worth playing with holster options!

    1. avatar Dr. Chet says:

      To Wayne,
      Thanks for complete honest opinion. Glad you caught on that the OPP grip reduces recoil and improves shot to shot accuracy. Holsters that fit are listed on the web site. Most holsters fit, and those that don’t usually require only mild dremeling to work.
      PS I just love it when skeptics catch on. Most do after trying it.
