From Hogue . . .

Hogue Inc. is excited to announce their new Wrapter Adhesive Firearm Grip line. Utilizing the same precision fit standards as their OverMolded® rubber grips, Hogue has engineered a remarkably thin grip solution for polymer frame pistols.

In order to increase grip and performance, shooters have previously resorted to custom stippling which dramatically compromised their firearm’s factory frame. Hogue now offers an effective alternative through their Wrapter adhesive system that will provide superior grip and hold while preserving the original condition of the firearm.

Wrapter Adhesive Grips are available in a soft rubber material that emulates the renowned Hogue rubber feel. Each Wrapter grip has been methodically designed to conform to the exact contours and unique features of popular polymer frame models.

With minimal bulk and a multi-piece outline, every grip provides optimal coverage. A balance of sweat-resistant and non-irritational properties provides a natural and comfortable grip experience. The adhesive is designed to create a long-lasting bond when activated by heat, but can also be removed without leaving a sticky residue behind.

Hogue Wrapter Grips have an MSRP of $14.95. In addition, this adhesive grip line includes a Do It Yourself solution (MSRP: $9.95) for those seeking custom grip placement according to their personal preference. Heavy grit options will also be available for those seeking a more aggressive and abrasive grip experience.

Hogue Wrapter Adhesive Grips are manufactured in Hogue family owned and operated facilities. Hogue Inc. supports local dealers and encourages customers to purchase Hogue products locally.

    Does not look impressive…..I’ll stick with Talon grips!

    They’re a little late to the party but are welcome all the same….

    Clever name!
    But they don’t look all that aggressive. As they appear, no improvement in grip. Increase in grip size, sure. I like the talon grips sandpaper texture. Of the factory original grips, Glock RTF2 then Sig E2 grip textures are the best.

    1. avatar Dan Zimmerman says:

      If you read the release above, they mention “heavy grit” options are coming soon, as well.

      I have a Talon grip (the pebbly rubber version) on a GLOCK 43 and like it a lot. Will be anxious to see how these compare.

      1. avatar Cea says:

        I have both the pebble rubber and sandpaper grit types on several guns. The sandpaper on competition guns, rubber on carry/range guns. I like both quite a lot for my purposes.
        But like I mentioned, the best ever, factory grip texture is the RTF2 from Glock. Nothing, from anyone, comes close to locking a gun in like that RTF2!

        1. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

          If one want’s a good grip on a Glock your suggestion of the RTF 2 is the best you are going to get from Glock.

          The only better grip that I can think of is by ditching the Glock frame all together along with all of it’s ills and upgrading to perfection by replacing it with a P 80 frame. By doing so you also get rid of the Glock hump,Glock knuckle, matter of fact not long ago swapped out the last of my OEM frames and that was on the G 22 RTF 2,can’t say I miss it in the least.

      2. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

        They will have much to live up to,to best.talon grips, time will tell.

  4. avatar enuf says:

    Existing grips are doing just fine as they came.

  5. avatar Montana Actual says:

    I remember buying a talon grip, and taking it off after my first time using it.

    Save your money, buy ammo.

    1. avatar RidgeRunner says:

      Same. I do like Hogue grips on my Rugers and Smiths, and on one AR, so may give this a shot for my G19. Love the pistol, not the grips.

  6. avatar Gadsden Flag says:

    I hate that “soft rubber feel” that Hogue is famous for. My cousin gifted me a Sig P220 with Hogue overmoulded rubber grips. Been looking for a set of original factory grips since. Bought a Sig P226 a couple of weeks ago. Immediately DX’d the Hogue grips. Bought another Sig P220 Saturday a week ago. It still had the factory grips. Thank you God! I’ve used Hogue checkered hardwood grips on my 1911s and Hi-Powers for decades. Great grips and look good too. Hard checkered on semi-autos. Pachmayer on magnum revolvers. Not the gripper style though.

    1. avatar possum says:

      To each his own, I’ve got the finger grooves rubber Houges on my 1911 and just love them, I even like the sticky feel. Hey Gadsden, my girlfiend bought me one of those high dollar custom knives Your always talking about for my birthday, and your right there’s no comparison with the over the counter stuff. Now I’m looking for some bone scales to put on that 1911 and a nice leather holster to match the knife. Still I like the Houges, but sometimes form over function😂

      1. avatar Gadsden Flag says:

        Bone or stag? Either can be had for a reasonable cost compared to say ivory. Especially for a 1911. You didn’t say which knife you were given, but if it was a Randall Sullivan’s makes their sheathes. Don’t know if they make holsters, but I have holsters by Mitch Rosen, Milt Sparks, Kramer, El Paso Saddlery, etc. Galco makes an excellent factory holster and they look great too. Enjoy your custom knife. Nothing like owning something truly hand made.

      I also. ROFL

  8. avatar RGP says:

    More soft rubber grips! People who will never learn to shoot very well will LOVE these!

    1. avatar Cea says:

      It’s apparent that you know nothing whatsoever of which you speak!
      Some polymer guns have slippery grip frames. A fact! Has nothing to do with knowing how to shoot, or not.
      Derp!

    2. avatar Gadsden Flag says:

      RGP, very well said! When I was taking my LEO firearms instructor class I had to intern with a class of cadets. One recruit had a Hogue “slip on” rubber grip. After every string of fire he would adjust it before bolstering. I gritted my teeth until I could stand it no longer. After a drill I was sure to be standing behind him. As he began to adjust the grip sleeve yet again I intervened and said, “Surrender your weapon.” After taking control of his pistol I cleared it and removed the grip sleeve. I said, “Let me show you what to do with this.” I then tossed it over my right shoulder and said, “You can’t buy skill. Concentrate on the fundamentals.” (He was a weak shooter anyway.) The head instructor called a halt to the class, gathered the other recruits around and had me repeat what I just said. The aforementioned recruit graduated about the middle of his class in firearms.

      1. avatar Cea says:

        Those slip on grip sleeves are atrocious…they slip around as easily as the slip on. But good grip tape, especially the sandpaper grit stuff, doesn’t move.
        Back when guns (1911s!) had good checkering front and back, no need for grip enhancers. Now, all these slippery plastic (I know, polymer) frames need help. And sometimes, tape helps a lot.

        1. avatar Gadsden Flag says:

          Cea, sorry, but I have to disagree. While the only polymer framed pistols I’ve owned are Glocks I think they’re pretty representative of the species. Never had a problem holding onto them. Regardless of conditions. Day before yesterday we had an 1 1/2″ of rain. Yesterday the heat index was 103. Wet grips here are the norm. Worked in that shit openly armed for nearly 25 years. You can keep the sandpaper/tape/etc. Spend your money on ammo and practice.

        2. avatar Cea says:

          Well, I shoot a lot of Glock pistols too. I have several (5) GSSF 500 patches. I shoot PPC and IDPA. I put 10k-14k rd a year thru my guns. I know how to shoot. Don’t need ammo…have 50# + of smokeless powder, 90k primers and 70k or so bullets.
          Practice? Yep, always could use more of that.
          But, all of that doesn’t make those plastic grip frames any more sticky! RTF2…FTW.

        3. avatar Gadsden Flag says:

          Didn’t say all of that made the grips more sticky. Just that the grips don’t need to be sticky. In fact I find “sticky” an impediment to draw and presentation. Just me.

        4. avatar Cea says:

          Actually, I was referring to my comments, when I said it didn’t make the frames more sticky. Just saying that I like the RTF2 the best.

      2. avatar Larry in Oregon says:

        Not all grip sleeves are created equal. I have one from hogue for my bg380 and that thing isn’t going anywhere.

      3. avatar Travis Bickle says:

        One time at band camp…..

  9. avatar Billy says:

    Better than the bicycle inner tubes they sell.

    1. avatar IAmNotTheHulk says:

      Used innertubes and the Hogue Hand-All, I think its called. both are good, innertubes are cheap and last a long time, the Hoge split in half on install, noce idea tho.

  10. avatar IAmNotTheHulk says:

    spelchekker iz fo chumps!

  11. avatar possum says:

    Adhesive grips do make it harder for ” them” to pry the gunm from your cold dead hands, but super glue works better. I quit carrying my super glue in an appendix style container tho.

  12. avatar Kevin Walther says:

    I’ve used Talon grips and rolls of grip tape which is the same product to do custom grips and recommend both products. Overall, I prefer stippling and it by no means detracts from the value of the firearm. In fact, if it’s done professionally it enhances the firearm and makes it more marketable.

  13. avatar Manse Jolly says:

    Skateboard tape…cut to fit how you want it..and it’s cheap.

    1. avatar Kevin Walther says:

      Absolutely. I use it in areas where it makes the most sense in combination with stippling and grip tape. I was never a big fan of Hogue.

    2. avatar Dude says:

      I was wondering if I could make through the comments without seeing skateboard tape mentioned. So close. At least it made sense with your context. 😉

  14. avatar ranchand says:

    +1 Talon grips

    rubber for concealed carry/casual; really really good for Gen 1, 2, 3 that are smooth textured, improves grip tremendously with no rough feel; very thin

    granulate/rough only for competition guns (like skateboard tape material)- super grip, wears on your hands for high round count practices though

    1. avatar SoCalJack says:

      I sometimes have sweaty hands or sweat gets on my carry gun when I carry appendix on very hot days. Talon has the best adhesive so far between others I’ve tried: GT-5000, Handleitgrips, and Foxx Grips. Foxx Grips were the only best option after I did a grip reduction on my glock 19. I’m confident in my dremel skills but have zero stippling ability.

    What will that have for Liberace types? Asking for a friend.
