Which Hogue grip?
« on: May 25, 2023, 10:42:35 PM »
I am sure someone must have bought a Hogue grip for their DB9.  Which model gives the best fit with standard clip?
How about with a +1 round extension?
Thx - RR

Does anyone use a Hogue grip on their DB9?  If so, which model and how does it fit?

I use the Hogue S&W Bodyguard 380/Taurus TCP & Spectrum: HandALL Beavertail Grip Sleeve - Black. It fits perfectly.

I use the Hogue Handall Jr.  I trimmed it to stay away from the mag release and it works just fine.  Heat it in boiling water before putting it on and it will be easy.

I ordered a black Hogue HandAll (#18500) based on Ghostreyeder's suggestion.  It came in today, I opened up the pkg and compared the HandAll to the grip of my Gen 4 DB9...I thought to myself, "there's no way in h*ll that HandAll is going to slip over the grip of the DB9).

Regardless, I read the instructions and followed them to a "T."  The end result was a perfectly fitting grip on my DB9.  Thanks Ghostreyeder for that suggestion!

Yep.  The Hogue grip gives you a better purchase on the gun so it is worth while going through the hassle of getting it on.  I put mine on at 71 YO with arthritic fingers.  Yeoow!

Before installing, warm it up with the wife's hairdryer. It'll stretch to fit easier. I use bicycle inner tubes. Just cut a section to fit that way you got the length covered. I forget what size inner tube I used but I think it was for a child's bike. Maybe a 20".
