Almost perfect cut out
Review by Rosio B.

I purchased this set of grips for my S&W Sigma 40. It’s the SW40VE. The fitment was pretty much on point and the install was easy. The only thing I didn’t like is that the circle cut out for the S&W logo is placed in the wrong spot. Other than that, no complaints.
Great grips

Easy to install and feels way better.
Best adhesion grip on the market for the price
Review by Kynisha Z.

Only thing necessary to install it is a weak heat gun or a hairdryer. I hated the hard plastic grip on my SD40ve, and decided to get this. A year later it is still going strong. Adds a new level of comfort to target shooting.

Easy to install. A fantastic upgrade for your SD9VE or SD40VE. Gets rid if the slippery feeling of the stock grip. Very comfortable. A must have upgrade for these great pistols.

Really kind of hard to get cutouts to line up right around S&W logo, got em close but whose gonna care or see when my hand is wrapped around the grip anyway?!
***Great product but not sure if beneficial on the SD9/SD40***
Review by Dyllon K.

First I just want to say that I love Talon grips and have been very pleased with the others I've bought for other firearms. They have turned slippery guns into secure grips with no modification to the guns and they look good, as well.

That being said, the factory texturing on the front and rear of the SD9/40 pistols is already more than sufficient for controlling your handgun even in extreme wet/sweaty conditions. If you want to wrap your grip with tape because the sides are too slick, you are gripping your handgun incorrectly. Squeezing the sides of your grip wastes energy and imparts sideways forces that will negatively affect your accuracy, all without adding any meaningful assistance to controlling your recoil/flip. If you don't believe me, listen to all the grand masters/pros who talk time and time again about how they don't grab the heck out of their gun. They grip front to back and lock their wrists. If you need further confirmation of this concept, take your unloaded pistol and pancake it between your hands as hard as possible and note how easily the muzzle still moves up if you press it against something. Now repeat this but instead of sandwiching the sides of the grip as hard as you can, hold it in just one hand, hand as high as the grip allows, and squeeze/pull backwards with your fingers so that you're driving the gun deep into your palm/webbing. In this hold, all of the pressure should be exerting against the front and rear of the grip. Try again to push the muzzle up and note how much more effective a one-handed firm front/rear grip is compared to a strongman sandwich grip on the sides.

Now that that point is (hopefully) driven home, stop and think what this grip tape will do to this particular firearm. It will provide more grip to the sides, yes, but you will be covering up the aggressive and effective factory texturing already applied to the most important parts (front and back) of the grip.

***I have taken my SD9VE to the range three times in the last week. Two of the trips were without the Talon tape and today's third trip was with the Talon added to the grip so I could compare. As much as I like the Talons on some of my other firearms, I confirmed after going through roughly 400 rounds over the three range trips that the tape unfortunately gave a more slick feeling when my hands would occasionally get a little damp/sweaty. With the aggressive front/back factory texturing covered up, I had to alter my hold to exert more pressure on the sides of the gun which is not ideal.***

On a lighter side, please note that even with the strong adhesion to your firearm, I can confirm that the Talon tape can be easily peeled back off if you do not care for it, and most importantly it does not leave any residual adhesive on the firearm.
