Traction grips
 
Has anyone purchased the traction grips for their SD40VE? I like the concept of having the same size grip as factory but with a little more grip to it. Not sure if they will peel off after alot of use though. I love my SD40 and the only complaint i have about it is the grip. Couple hrs of shooting and it start s to get a little slippery. But for the price, its not bad. Very minor issue. I see alot of complaints about the trigger but it suits me just fine.

I've only made it to the range once so far with my 3 week old sd40ve... But mine became slippery half way through also. I just recently bought the Pachmayr Sigma grip for $13.24 on eBay... Haven't shot it yet but it feels great. Very stretchy so it went on easy and does not slide around at all. Won't know for sure till I shoot it but for $13 it's worth it for sure! Here's a pic...

I installed them on my SW9VE and I love them. The material holds up great. I had them since last May and I have been thinking about getting them for my SD40VE.

Sorry, I didnt realize this thread was about specifically the brand TractionGrips. I never heard of them until I seen your post... looked it up and they look good. If my Pachmayr grip doesnt work out well... I will probably buy some of these. I have the SD40VE... would I get the one for the SW9VE or the SD9?

Sweet, i was just worried they would start to peel off after awhile! I want to keep the same ergonomics of the pistol but have a little more bite

I just now ordered my set for my SD40VE, they also fit the SD40 as well.

SD9 and SD40 are the same grips... :D

Skateboarders tape isnt as pliable as the traction grips are.

I was wondering how you like the Pachmayer Grip for the SD40 now that you have had it awhile. I am considering buying one.

Techse7en77 02-09-2013 05:44 PM

Still haven't gotten a chance to shoot... The weather has been **** around here. I'll post a review right after I get a chance too!

looks good

I ordered some traction grips. Installed and LOVE them. it gives me just the right amount of grip without being overly grippy (is that a word?) and is thin enough to not make the grip bulky. In a word... they're Perfect!
