Default Has anyone tried the Pachmayr slip on grips?

Has anyone given these a whirl? I have found them on Amazon for pretty cheap and didn't know if they were worth getting or not?

I used one on a Ruger p97dc and liked it. Now how well it would work on a XD with the backstrap safety, I am not sure.

Ya I have their full grip for my S&W 39-2 I found them here (really you can find them all over) just didn't know if anyone tried them and had an opinion.

That looks like it would do the trick noj. For that price it would be worth a shot anyway.

I think I will just go ahead and order it and see how well it works.

If you do post a review after you try it, so we can all see if it works or not.

I have a set on one of my LC9's and its OK at best. It's actually like "padded" on the sides so it ads more thickness to the grip than a Hogue one does for the same gun. However Pachmayer makes more sizes for more guns than Hogue does..

I like the feel of it, but not the added bulk. Unsure if I'll keep it on or not.

Thanks man! and Winger do you have any pics? I actually have two XD's (well wife has one and I have one) so I may buy the Pachmayr for mine and Hogue for hers and give it a side by side test and see how they feel out.
