I wonder how many of you have a problem with the grips on the P99? I love the way it feels in my hand, size is perfect, but a little too slick. I was thinking about taking it down to the place that does the rhino liner sprayed in truck bed linings and seeing what he'd charge me to put a thin coat on my grip. This shouldn't change the shape to it at all, but would add a rubbery grip that would slip less. What do you guys think??
The only drawback would be it's pretty permanent. Would this void any warranties??

Thanks

Before you do anything as permanent as the truck bed liner, you might want to try the Derma-Grip or the wooden backstrap.

Good idea, I had never heard of the Derma grip. I'll see if I can pick one up at the gun show this weekend!!!

Any other thoughts on the practicality of the spray on stuff or voiding the warranty???

Thanks

I have got derma on one p99 and grip tape on the backstrap on another p99. The grip tape is better than the derma grips.

Musky,
How large a piece of grip tape did you use? How well does it adhere to the backstrap?

Thanks

I added skate board tape to the gip of my 40.  I custom cut small strips.  I've not tried the other products mentioned.  Skate board tape is cheap.  $3.99 for a sheet 8" x 24".

jaylsb, If you want to try some skateboard tape I will send out a chunk of it to you. PM me your info.

Regards

Where did you stick the grip tape? The backstrap and sides? Horizontial or vertical? If you could provide a pic, I would appreciate it.

I thought that the little bumps on the back strap would be a problem - they weren't. The voids on the front of the grip aren't a problem either.

That actually looks really good AHSGA!! Nice job. Thanks for the tape offer, there's actually a bike shop right down the road that sells skateboard stuff, so i'll just stop by and pick up a sheet for myself, but thanks for the gesture. Just this past weekend I bought a generic rubber slip on grip for it, had to trim it up a little to fit right but it looks alright. Haven't had a chance to shoot it since so not sure how it will actually work. I really kind of like the way your grip looks with the tape, so I may do that instead. Thnks

I am currently using the Butler Creek smallest slip-on grip.
But, that skateboard tape looks better!

David,
I actually thought of that after the post because I actually have a can in the basement. Maybe tape off some small areas and put it in the same places as AHSGA did with the grip tape. It would look just as good, but like you said and like with the liner, it's probably permanent.
