Now that's my kind of slip-on grips. I like the rubber slip on grips, but I really liked the "skateboard" tape type stuff that you can stick on the grip, I felt them at one of the gun shows.Frost said:I used a piece of a bicycle inner tube to fabricate a grip sleeve for my 36.
Works pretty well.
Completely changes the way the trigger feels and not in a good way in my opinion ether. The NY1 trigger changes it so that there's more resistance in the take up of the trigger as well as a heavier trigger pull. The 3.5 connector lightens the NY1 a little, I even removed the NY1 spring and it still sucked.Frost said:I keep reading about people using a NY trigger spring with a 3.5 connector and saying how great it is.
Well let me tell you it sucks.
I tried it and have no use for it.
Dirk Pitt also tried it and did not like it.
Frost said:Nice pictures!
It's true a picture is worth a thousand words.
I put a +1 on a 36 magazine tonight.
It is kind of neat the way the snap in extension goes in the opening where most people put a grip plug.
I need to handle it a bit more and take it shooting.
I don't much care for grip sleeves.
I picked up a couple today and tried one on an 30 using a 21 magazine and on a 27 using a 22 magazine.
The sleeve on my XD sub-compact is much nicer.
Damn that was hard for me to say since I am a Glock guy.
I may change my mind after a bit of experimentation.
True, longer springs are a must when going up in round count.Frost said:I have never seen a Glock brand sleeve.
I would not get more than one with out trying it.
I have read where some people complain about them pinching their fingers in the spaces.
One guy claims they need to be glued and locked with the set screw.
On the 27 I generally use the +2 extensions from Glock.
I have read mixed results with the aftermarket ones.
Also I have +0 finger hooks on a couple of 23 mags that work pretty well.
Pops had problems with a Glock magazine with an aftermarket extension on it.
If I remember correctly he replaced the spring and that did not fix his problem.
When he put a standard base on the magazine his problem went away.
He can tell the particulars better than I.
After you get some trigger time with the extension you should write a detailed review of it to go with the pictures and we can put it up in the yet to be created section for tech and review articles.
