Hogue has unleashed a new line of HandALL grip sleeves: the Hogue HandALL Beavertail Grip Sleeve. According to the press release, these grip sleeves are designed to exactly three different sizes of polymer handguns. The first sleeve fits Smith & Wesson’s M&P Shield in 9mm, .40 and .45 ACP, Ruger’s LC9 and Glock’s 26 and 27. The second sleeve fits the Glock 42 and 43. The last sleeve fits Smith & Wesson’s M&P Shield 45 and Kahr Arms’ P9, P40, CW9 and CW40.
The Hogue HandALL Beavertail Grip Sleeve is installed by simply slipping them over the gun frame. Once that’s done, the HandALL sleeve provides a finger groove for instinctive firearm handling. The finger groove leads into a palm swell designed to naturally fit in the hand. The beavertail built into the grip sleeve rises high along the frame’s backstrap “giving full rubber contact with the hand allowing a higher hand-placement on the grip without the fear of the slide biting the skin between the thumb and the trigger finger,” the release says. The beavertail also cushions the hand during recoil.
The HandALL is built from a thermoplastic elastomer compound, meaning it’ll age gracefully and won’t harden, split or crack from age or overuse. The sleeve features Hogue’s Cobblestone texture, which is a series of small circular bumps that guard against slipping and irritation on the rubber.
