I love mine.....
If I ever had a complaint about the P99 it was how slippery the frame feels or even gets when you spend a afternoon in the dessert....
the Dermagrip fixed all this....
I like the fact that it is kind of permanent... unless you cut it off..
it will not move once it is on the frame... and it has a good texture IMHO

Wow. Interesting. My understanding is that you heat it up with a hair dryer and it then molds to the grip. But you can get it off should you ever decide right?

yes ... but after you take it off (with knife or scissors) it is useless
It is just like a heat shrink wrap that one uses for electrical wire
and just for the heck of it... another pic

I've never seen anything like this. Maybe I'll give it a try. Was the instal hard?

No it is not hard... but take your time....
the Derma grip is not cylinder shaped.. but rather like a cone...
I put the smaller diameter end to the top of the grip and started heating it up on the top end .... making sure it is positioned where I wanted it.
I then worked my way down..... you will have to cut off the excess material on the magwell with a exacto knife.
It will help to have a second set of hands that can hold the frame in a stable position so you can use your hands to hold the derma grip in place and move the blow dryer around

For this severely tool challenged individual it sounds like a recipe for disaster. :) I am debating....I have a Lone Wolf slip on grip now that works pretty well. Should I tempt fate? I'm sayin' no but I love a good challenge.

Jake ... will the P99 tactical knife do the trick ??

Kraigster.... as long as you dont hold the blowdryer on one spot for too long the worst you can do is waste $20

Thanks Uncut. Maybe I don't give myself enough credit. After all I did use a hair dryer to tweak that Crossbreed holster (cut for a Sig) so it would fit my P99. And you're right....when the plastic starts bubbling, you know you got it too hot.

I am afraid the plastic on the P99 won't bubble.....but I think you got the idea... it doesn't take as much heat as it did for the kydex holster..... just make sure to keep moving the blowdryer

Awesome! I'll probably get that or something very similar! I just got my P99 9mm AS earlier this week!

I got mine today for my brand new P99 AS 9mm and I like it a lot so far. I'm going to shoot with it soon and can't wait! I got my blackhawk serpa II holster too, so all in all I'm set to have some fun at the range. Been thinking about getting a threaded barrel and compensator in the future. Uncut, you have a compensator at all?

I think I have a little more work to do on it though. took forever with my hair dryer.
