    What brand and model grip sleeve fits the P3AT? Where can I order it?

    The Hogue will be slightly loose. I used a squirt of the wife's hairspray to hold it in place. I've since replaced the Hogue with the AGlaser, with a much better fit.

    You could also do a search and you will come up with a poor man's one using an inner tube. I have it on both my P32 and P3AT with enough material left over to last for years.

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

    Hogue, Pachmayr, Glaser, and Butler Creek 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.

    Hogue HandAll, Jr
    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.

    Pachmayr, Model 4
    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.

    Glaser
    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.

    Butler Creek, Small (no longer manufactured but may still be available)
    These have no finger grooves, the same thickness all around and a bit thinner than Glaser and Pachmayr, and are textured on the sides.

    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 switched, because of loose fit, from the Hogue HandAll, Jr to AGlaser grip pads (one set) and sleeve. Much happier with the latter but wish the sleeve was sexier looking.

    I hear Sprinter is working on a low cut, lacy version.  ;D

    Ok. Ok. So can we all agree on a low cut lacy see through grip? Now what about color?  :)


    Take care ...

    I just use a cut piece of inner tub on mine. Works great, non-fattening, and cheap enough that I can and have done all my guns that need a grip sleeve for the same $7.99.

    When choosing an inner tube I go for the extra thick thorn proof type.
