    Rubber grips

    I have rubber grips on both my FS's. I have changed from Hoppes to CLP.
    Do the rubber grips stand up to the chemicals or do you all remove them?
    I just want these suckers to last.
    Thanks.

    I always remove mine, but that's just me.

    I'm assuming you have either hogue or pachmayr or like high quality rubber grips. I just replaced my Hougue grips that had been on my 92 for 13 years. So yes, they are pretty much impervious to gun cleaning solutions. I'd suggest using a little soap and water to remove any chemical or oil residue. Oils can make the rubber slippery which I really don't like, but soap and water fixes that. They should easily last over a decade. I shoot and clean my pistols often, so no, I don't take them off for each and every cleaning.

    That's what I thought ,thanks. They are the replacements for the plastic grips, panels, not the wrap around.

    I put some grips on my 96, that I got from a guy in N. Carolina.......they are the plastic ones, with the Beretta logo , but he does something to them..the best way I can describe them, is that they look like someone took a tiny woodburning tool, and made tiny indentations in the grips. I know that this is not what he did, but that's what they look like, minus any burning of course. I wanted something a little different than everything else out there, they grip my hand better than the standard grips, they look nice, and for only $15, they do the trick.....

    All I use is breakfree CLP. I have hogue grips on all 9 of my 92s.

    The oil won't hurt it
