Question Slip-on grips for M&P 45???

Has anyone tried either the Pachmayr or Hogue slip-on grips for an M&P 45?

How did the feel?

Did they stay in place?

Is one better than the other?


if you have on, can you post a picture of it on the gun?

IMHO, the Hogue is much better.
it doesn't just slip on, like the Pachmayr. it has a internal spine that inserts into the grip, just like the M&P's backstraps, so it does NOT move at all.
i love my Hogue, especially cause it has swells on both sides. my only knock on it is that i wish the back of it was textured.

I have a Hogue Hand-all for a Glock, but it is loose around the bottom backside of the M&P 45.

The Hogue 17400 grip is listed for the M&P 9, 40, and 357. If that grip has an internal insert like bikendan mentioned, then it wouldn't fit the M&P 45 because there are different grip insert numbers for the M&P 45 versus the M&P 9, 40, and 357.

At least Brownell's lists them as different parts.

You must have some big paws to want or need a slip on grip.

I use a Hogue Hand-all on my Beretta 92 to fit my hand. If the grip doesn't take up space either front to back or side to side, my trigger finger moves the gun up and to the left when I pull the trigger. I need a fat or long grip to keep my trigger pull linear (straight back).

I assume that the large grip is already on the M&P45.

I have a void in my palm with the Shield grip. I added a Pachmayr Tactical grip to fill it out. My FS M&P's work just fine with the large and my .45c works with the medium. The large causes the rear of the slide stop on the .45c to jab the tip of my thumb but the medium fixed it.

I use a Hogue Handall Jr. on my Shield. It adds just enough to the grip for me to get a good hold and keep my hand from slipping. Can't beat it for $7 from Academy!

Hey guys, just a suggestion, but do yourselves a huge favor and try out the Talon Inc wrap-on grips. Custom fit for all M&Ps, Glocks, XDs, you name it. Provides an awesome grip surface with dry or sweaty hands and is very low profile not adding additional bulk to your grip. They are a piece of cake to install and look awesome...AND are only $20 bucks or so. I have them on 8 or so pistols. For the guys that don't like the rougher grip texture of the Gen 4's, Talon Grips are your answer.

I have a Talon kit coming out of an 'Bay auction. For $17 I thought I'd give that a try. I had hoped to get a C.O.R.E factory backstrap but they're hard to find separately. I see Talon gets good reviews for fit and function and my next door neighbor has it on his service gun.
