For Christmas my son gave me a Talon grip for my M&P 1.0. I installed it last night. It's not as aggressive as my 2.0 but feels good.
I Googled Talon grips and noticed they make a rubber textured grip as well. I might have to buy a rubber grip and try it on one of my other pistols. Opinions?
BTW, this was my first time installing a grip like this. It looks like it came out okay. smile

Looks good! I thought about them. I used some skateboard tape on my pistol handles and liked the way it felt. I don't care for the stock M&P plastic handles in the cold. I put Hogue rubber grip on my 9mm. https://www.hogueinc.com/handall-hybrid-s-w-m-p-9mm-40s-w-357sig-grip-sleeve-black

The rubber is less aggressive if that's what you're after. The trick to making them stick good is the prep of the surface and heating with a hair dryer is key to get the adhesive set good.

901Memphis, I have plenty of 91% alcohol on hand for doing the First Aid of my wounds. I used that with 4X4 gauze pads to clean my grip. I borrowed my g/f's hair dryer to heat the grip. But, like everything else one does, the prep work is what counts.
Talon recommends using some 120 grit sand paper to remove a bit of the aggressive granular material. I find it to be just fine.
