    Hello,

    I've seen Kel-tec's that have a black rubber type band that runs across the handle to add grip. Does anyone know where I can get one of those?

    Thanks

    Tom

    Handall, Hogue, and Uncle Mikes (what I use) are all good ones. If you just want a smooth grip without the rubber textures some members have took to cutting up bicycle innertubes and sliding those over the grips. Otherwise you will spend about $11 on a over glorified rubber band.

    Slip-On Grips for the Kel-Tec P-3AT

    Hogue, Pachmayr, and Glaser, make slip-on grips that fit the P-3AT. They are all a bit different. Some may need trimming. Glaser also makes “pads” that stick to the front and/or back straps to soften and slightly enlarge the grip. AGRIP makes a pre-cut stick-on grip.

    These have finger grooves, are thinner at the front and back straps, have slight palm swells, and are textured on the sides. These tend to be a bit loose on the P3-AT, so a layer or two of bicycle tube or a bit of something sticky helps to keep them tight.

    These have finger grooves, are the same thickness all around, and are textured all over. These tend to be a bit loose on the P3-AT, so a layer or two of bicycle tube or a bit of something sticky helps to keep them tight.

    These grips have no finger grooves, are the same thickness all around, and are smooth all over.
    The pads are self-adhering and can be removed easily.

    Or you can make your own:
    One good thing about doing it this way is that the material is thin and you can experiment by trying a different number of layers. Some bike tubes have ribbed areas, so you can make a ribbed or smooth grip.
    I got a couple of tubes free - went to a local bike shop and asked for any bad ones they were throwing away.
    The 20 x 1.75 - 2.125 worked best for me.

    I vote for the grip cover from ktaddons. I've done the bike tube and hogue handall jr. (upside down) and neither fit snuggly. Even a small bike tube would shift after a few rounds...and I had to superglue the hogue in place. The grip from ktaddons hasn't moved at all. Well worth the price.

    Holy crap did I get an answer!

    Doubloon, you hit the nail right on the head. That is the one I was looking for.

    Though after reading the one using the bike tube. I may try that first. I may want to go more than one layer.

    Thanks to all

    Todd,

    Did you use the energy absorbing pads or just the rubber grip?

    Thanks
