    Nice job. Is this to make the grip thinner?

    Seems like it might make the gun hard to hold on to with sweary hands or rain. I switched to packmyers for that reason.
    Let us know how it works out.

    Sounds like a cool idea. I wonder, if it works, if you could mould some sort of pattern or design into them by placing something underneath it, heating it and pressing it.?? Neat project.

    Was wondering if you were going to change them out. Interesting project - look forward to the finished results.
