Default Spray on rubber grips

I was thinking of using some spray on rubber to cover my C9 grips. Has anyone done this? Any pics? Thanks!

Default Spray on rubber grips

I have done it to all of my Hi Point pistols, used Peformix Plasti Dip multi purpose aerosol spray rubber coating.

Put on about 7 coats on each grip. Make them good and wet when you spray them. They are soft and feel very nice. I posted some pics, but you really cant tell much by them. The difference is in the feel.

I also coated the Tapco front Hand grip on my saiga 12 because I like the feel so much.

Balance them on something to spray them, otherwise the spray will glue the grips to where the grip meets the over spray on the cardboard or whatever you put them on to spray.

It says to keep out of direct sunlight when doing it, but be forewarned, the fumes are horrible.

This is MUCH better than the spray auto undercoating that I had previously tried.

One of my pistols fell and hit on the grip on a sharp edge in the gun cabinet and it left a very noticeable mark and I thought well there goes that idea. After an hour, the mark had disappeared as the rubber retained its original shape.

I highly recommend it to those that do not want to put a store bought slip on grip on their pistol but want something that feels like an inner tube but looks better.

I've used PlastiDip on the plastic grips of my .22 revolver and the metal stock of my AR7. They have held up perfectly for over two years. I even used it on the frame of my fly reel.

Default Spray on rubber grips

Griff & Highpoint , Waltham is the man with the plastidip. I have a friend who worked in the tool room at a manufacturing facility and they have something similar to plastidip that is a hot coating. They heat the rubber up to the point of liquefying then dip their tools in it they use for electrical work. He dipped my grips by taking them and putting a screw through the hole and dipping the outside only. It worked great. Then like an idiot I traded my grips for a set of regular and a mag to obtain another mag. I should have bought the other mag. Since then the plant shut down and Danny was laid off.
