The grip is great. A good way to test the difference is to put some dish soap on your hands, grip the handgun like you're firing it and have someone try to grab it out of your hands. I can tell you that anyone would be hard pressed to get this thing out of my hands right now, where as the grip was very slick before. It helps with sweaty hands, oily hands, wet hands or bloody hands. If you are unsure, try some grip tape. That won't require any modification of the handgun, but will wear out after some use.

Honestly, this stippling was very easy to do. All I needed was a vise, a soldering iron (a hot knife works fine too and has replaceable tips depending on the pattern you want) and some Scotch tape for making the top lines. I watched several YouTube videos that outlined and demonstrated the process. It took me about 3 hours with breaks to do it. I'd recommend practicing on a few things before you start your handgun. I stippled a Tapco magazine for my AK just to practice. It would also work for P-Mags and really improves the grip.
