I love the rubberized talon grips. I have had them on four different guns and the grip really makes a difference. I currently have the Hogue Handall on my Shield 40 and they add a little grip width for the rang. I really like the Hogue, but for concealed carry the Talons may be a better choice.

Yes they are easy to put on and they are the rubberized grips not the sandpaper type. They feel nice and not bulky like the other over the grip slip on types. Fits perfect in my pocket holster and my kydex IWB from PJ Holster.

Good Luck to the family as they carry on the business.

I'll have to try a set of these, they definately look better than the slip on ones we see.

Very nice. I had a set of the rubber on my Beretta Nano. The only thing I missed when I unloaded the gun for the Shield.

Great product! Great service! Good people! Have them on all my semiautos. The ones for the Shield are absolutely fabulous. I am glad they stayed in business. I had ordered a couple of sets on May 5 and stuck with them and waited until they got back up. Glad I did. Ordered 2 sets for my Shield when they started up again got them in less than week with a hand written thank you. Can't ask for better than that!

Ordered both the rubber and granulated. I think I will go with the rubber but they were so cheap I just ordered both to see which one I would like best. Cant wait till they get in.

I Just ordered some Talons this evening.

While we are talking about improvements... The Apex Tactical sear and firing pin blocker kits for my Shield make a tremendous difference in trigger crispness and over-travel. Absolutely amazing difference. Worth every penny.

I can't decide between the rough texture or the rubberized. Which one do you prefer now that you've tried both?

Just got my rubberized Talons in the mail today for my Shield9. Of course I don't actually have the Shield yet! I've put the granular on my previous guns but this is the first time I'll have used the rubber ones. I think I'm gonna like the rubber better, but won't know until my Shield arrives.

Looks good Rotty - Really tack sharp photos too.

Did the Trijicon sights change your POI vs. the stock sights? And how will do they fit the contour of the Shield's slide?

Go for the rubberized. You wont be disappointed. The rough texture is just to sand paper'ish to me, too rough and snags on my clothing.

I think the best night sights (for now) are the Trijicon SA37s. Check out my post on the SA37s here: My S&W Shield in 9mm with Trijicons SA37s....

Exactly the same height and just a tad wide on the rear but it's not noticeable. Looks like it was made for the Shield. Super bright. POA/POI is right on point. Super accurate and pretty much the same design as the stock sights and it's snag-less on any pocket holsters or IWB holsters I have.

I'm very very please with it. I carry the Shield more often then my other pistols and I just came back from the range today and @ 25 ft and hitting tennis ball size groups. I totally recommend the Trijicon SA37 night sights.
