    Thanks for the prompt info. I asked the dealer where I bought it about the grip when I bought it and he said it was probably a Hogue grip but that those are generaly for Gloks and it would split if I tried to put one on a HK tac. Is there a certain size I need to get or was he just full of it?

    No, it is the same one - it would probably be just a bit hardder to get it on.

    I have heard all sorts of tips on getting those on - In the 1990s, I had one on a G19 - and, the shop put it on for me - They wrestled w/ it for 10 min, and got it on w/ a buttload of gun oil.

    I have heard some people say they used dishwashing soap (which eventually dries).

    Others have said to put it in water and bring it close to a boil. That loosens the rubber, and then it is easier to put on.

    I didn't have a problem putting it on. It is a tight fit but nothing you cant do. It says on it that it fits on HK .45 so I am not sure what your gun shop guy is talking about. The glock grip is larger than the HK.

    I love mine! It can outshoot anything! I went to my SO's range a few weeks ago and they were all making fun of me because of my pimp gun and said I should get a real gun like a glock. All they said after I shot was "Well shit! Let me try that!" They had average groups while the HK made nice little tight ones. They all want to switch now. THe gun makes me look good! lol

    Try using talc powder. It has worked for me getting the Hogue grips on the large frame of a Glock 21. The talc won't hurt the grip or the polymer handle and won't loosen the grip over time, as I think oil might.

    Those things are a pain, but worth it! Worst I have done was put one on a 22, I can't imagin trying to put one on a 21! I really don't like using anything to get them on. It just takes muscle and a few minutes.

    I have found a good technique for putting on the Hogue grip is to coat the inside of the grip with talc. It goes on much easier and with time, the talc wears off. Besides, it won't hurt the frame of the gun.

    Below are 4 rounds of .45 230gr fired from a free standing postition at 10 yards. If I can do this with cheap practice ammo I cant wait to see how I do with the good stuff!
    Edit: I went back and did some measuring and it looks like the distance was a little shy of 12 yards. The group measures 1 1/8"

    Can someone please tell me the proper way to measure groupings? The OP said 1 1/8" but I don't know how to measure. Is it closest edges of the outermost holes, or far edges, or centers of the furthest holes?

    one of the tricks we use to install motorcycle handgrips it to spray a little hairspray in the grip, slides on easily, dries and adheres the grip to the bar, breaks loose easily for removal and doesnt harm the finish.

    Just bought an HK Compact and yet I can't stop thinking about HK USP Tactical as being my next firearm. HK top quality... I should get a 1911 since I don't have one but it will be tough to pass up on a USP Tactical as being my first .45
