Are you one of those who mourn the loss of finger grooves on the GLOCK Gen5 pistols? Do you find the nubbly texture on GLOCKs not grippy enough? Or do you have hands the size of a silverback gorilla’s and need more girth to get a good hold on your gun.
Never fear, Hogue is here. They’ve just announced a couple of additions to their HandAll line of beavertail grip sleeves for the GLOCK 17. They’ve made two new versions to accommodate every iteration of the venerable and popular G17 pistol. Here’s their press release . . .
Henderson, NV – Hogue Incorporated is proud to announce the newest additions to their line of precision fit HandALL Beavertail Grip Sleeves with 2 models uniquely designed to fit the Glock 17. “The Glock 17 is a favored pistol for law enforcement, military and personal use all over the world” said grip designer Matt Hogue. “We are pleased to offer our highly popular HandALL Beavertail Grip Sleeves to fit this firearm. The reliability of the Glock 17 paired with the perfect fit of our HandALL make it a perfect combo for field carry or personal use at home. Two variations are available to ensure a perfect fit: the first made for Glock Generations 1, 2 and 5 and the second for Generations 3 & 4.”
The Hogue HandALL Beavertail Grip Sleeve is installed by fitting it over the Glock’s polymer frame until it seats perfectly into position. The sleeve is precision manufactured to provide a secure and comfortable fit. Once installed, the HandALL sleeve’s finger grooves offer instinctive handling and control of the firearm. The grooves lead into a gentle palm swell that has been carefully designed to fit naturally in the hand. The beavertail built into the grip sleeve rises high along the backstrap of the frame. This provides hand comfort higher on the grip. In addition, the beavertail also cushions the hand during recoil by providing better distribution of recoil forces. These built-in features provide comfort and confidence which in turn promote accuracy.
The HandALL is built from a long-lasting durable thermoplastic elastomer compound. This rubber ages very gracefully and keeps a firm, tacky feel throughout the life of the grip. It will not harden, split or crack with age or use. The surface is covered with Hogue’s familiar Cobblestone™ texture, a series of small circular bumps that provide an efficient non-slip, non-irritating grip on the rubber. The Glock 17 HandALL Beavertail Grip Sleeves have an MSRP of $10.95 for black, and $12.95 for OD green, flat dark earth, aqua, pink and purple.
