So i've always had a problem hanging onto the pistol during rapid firing. It likes to turn out of my hand especially when my palms get sweaty.



Luckily, Talon Grips just released grips for the m&p!!! So of course I just ordered a pair of the rubber ones to see how they'll do... Pics to come when they get here.

I ordered a pair of the rubber ones, seeing as those shouldn't wear down over time like the gritty ones. I'll post some pics when I get them. They're only $11.00 shipped, figured it was worth a try since they dont add extra bulk like the hogue slip over grip does.



Also, this is reversible as opposed to stippling the grip which is not reversible

So I got my grips in the mail Saturday afternoon, I believe i ordered them Wednesday or Thursday. Pulled them out of the envelope and they didn't at first seem to be as grippy as I hoped. Either way, I followed the instructions and went slow. Installation is much easier than i anticipated. The backside (sticker side) is not immediately adhesive. You have to hit it with a blow dryer to "finalize" installation. This makes it much easier during installation to apply, and if you screw up, peel it off and re-apply. I got it pretty close and hit it with a blow dryer.



I gotta say, for $11.00 shipped, the results are amazing. The rubber textured ones turned out, in the end, MUCH grippier than it originally felt. My trigger is bone stock and I get very minimal movement of the front sight when dry-firing. Only negative side is that this product is a sticker. And it will have a couple corners that overtime, might peel up. This firearm will be used in IDPA competitions next month. So expect a follow-up review on the grips for durability



Overall, it's definitely the best-cheapest upgrade for the M&P

OH yeah almost forgot the porn....

They look great. Thanks for posting pics too. How does the color match? I've tried a different brand of stick on grip that we're supposed to be black but once stuck to a black polymer pistol they looked grey.

The color is pretty close, doesn't bother me much. The pattern of the rubber ones I got almost matches the pattern of the polymer frame.

Thanks for the info. IM trying to decide between a stipple job and this. Although I think stippling looks better. if it's well done.

Looks really good



I like the idea of this more than the permanent stippling jobs out there. The only issue I would have is the possible peel off. But I guess you could just reapply some new ones or clean it off. How much thickness does it add to the grip area?

Yup, this is the ONLY con i can think of with these grips. It adds very minimal thickness to the grips. The grips are about 1 mm thick so its hardly noticable with them on, besides the extra grippiness gained
