Hi placing an order and decided to get one of those Houge grips. What size will fit the P3AT, I was thinking the Jr but thought I better check first. Thanks

For the few minutes I had it on it slipped around. And then when I realized that I could not choose where my finger fit on the already small grip I realized what a bad idea the Hogue was, at least for me. Sprinter's grips and pads on the other hand will make your pistol feel like it belongs in your hands.

I have noticed the Hogue grip slip just a little. I put a drop of super glue under the edges and haven't had the problem since. I like the Hogue grips on mine, but you do have to cut it to fit correctly.

If I had to do it all over again I'd go with the other grips at ktaddons.

+1 on Sprinter's grip cover, and also his energy absorbing pads. Couple Sprinter's stuff with a Bersa finger extension and the p3at feels real good in my hand.

oh yeah, you'll have to cut the hogue to fit the grip on the p3 or else it gets in the way of the mag release.

Thanks that's my next move I think the Bersa finger extention do you find it long enough, and when you call bersa what do you ask for they make a lot of guns. Do the Sprinter grip covers have a better fit and do they also require triming.

They were made just for the P3-AT and do not require any cutting.

Houge Jr. grip was just OK on my P3AT. Installed upside down it was comfortable enough and though it would slip my Bersa finger extion mittigated the slipage somewhat. Switched to Sprinter's pads (got two sets and installed one set) and grip and have not looked back. Got my 2nd P3AT this past Saturday and already have a Sprinter grip on order. Only wish the grip didn't look so much like a bike inner tube.

Take care...

I can't justify the costs for the amount sold to make individual molds, but at least my extrusions now are textured ;)

Try this link to see the Bersa finger extension that I bought (although I would try to find the Bersa Finger extension @ your Local Gun Shop before ordering online - the part is $7.00 and the shipping is $6.99 - way too much in my opinion)...the Sprinter grip covers do not require any trimming - and they are a great add on to the p3at - they fit perfectly. Also, try Sprinter's energy absorbing grip pads underneath the grip cover - another nice add on for the p3at.

Sprinter,

By "molds" do you mean something that would result in finger grooves like with Houge? Don't need or necessarily want that. What do you mean by textured? Believe I put my oder in Monday, will I be recieving a "textured" grip :cool:?

Thanks...

That's what I was noticing not very attractive does it really improve your grip and do you miss the finger grove like on the Houge. Thanks

Tom,

Yes, I believe the grip improves, especially with the addition of the grip pads, both the control and comfort of shooting the P3AT. I personally do not miss the finger grooves of the Houge though I had no particular problem with them. Grips and how they feel really differ from shooter to shooter. The grip one shooter loves will be hated by another. Notice how more and more semi-autos are coming out with swapable backstraps? Didn't Glock, on at least some of their models, stop making the grips with finger grooves? My suggestion to you, unless you're really impoverished, is to get several grips and give them all a try. I've only tried the Houge Handall Jr. and Sprinter's; I prefer Sprinter's.

Take care...

Say guys what about the Pachmayr slip on grip, I believe #4. Do they fit better then the Houge? I understand the Houge slip around, how about the Pachmayr do they give a secure fit. Thanks
