    Bring back the old style grips like HP once had. It would improve on the looks and feel of all the pistols.

    Yes indeed. The old-style grips gave the HP some real asthetic appeal and make the whole firearm seem more proportionate. How about a grip kit?

  3. I'm not sure whether you are talking about the shape (as it fits the hand), or the stickiness (as it resists being wrested from the grip because of kickback).

    I may not have the same reference point, but I have an old Iberia .40, with hard plastic grips. These are not particularly 'sticky', nor do they really fit the hand. OK? yes. That's about it.

    On the other hand, the grips of my C9 fit the hand much better, and -- with a Hogue grip -- really latch onto your extremities like an aroused octopus. This I love.

    Farmkid I was referring to the style grips on my older JC.40 . These are what I am talking about. I saw a set like this on a C9 and it felt great in the hand. It is not as finger friendly as the current design. But I like the stippling on the grip. They are a little thinner and feel good to the hand. Maybe for the fun of it slip a Houge over them and it would feel awesome.

    Make them yourself. Should not be too tough. The ones on the C9 sure fit my hand nicely . But they are just panels cant be to hard.

    Well, you could always try to fit 1911 grips on your Hi-Point, might need some adjustment, but worth a shot?

    grips arent just panels. they have working parts, springs an dother htings behind them. it is possible (ive done it in wood) but very difcult for a novice. a new mold design and selling them as ana cesory from HP is a more realistic option.

    lol...1911 grips would definitly not work since the screws are different :embarrassed2:, the old JC may have accomodated 1911 grips.

    Any links to that mcdonl?
  11. i have a bit of diamond plate layin around i have wondered if it would be hard make me some grips.... guess ill have to keep an eye out and if i get bored enough just make me a riiiiight
  12. I do like the c9 grips but I would like a firm rubber grip. 8) I love the style of grips that taurus has on the ss revolver line. They are firm and give you good grip even if your hands are wet .. ^-^ Even if Hi-Point would offer a different grip as an optional add on I would purchase a set ..

    I would really like a grip that feels more substantial, even if the overall weight of the weapon was further increased. It's already the heaviest, adding 6 oz to weight the handle so it isn't balanced like a brick on a cardboard toilet paper tube would make me a very happy man.

    I would like to see a readilly available wood grip. Maybe with a check pattern for the C9. or maybe just a check pattern done on the grips they have now would be nice. I like the way the grip fits to my hand but they could be more slip resistant for those cold days.
