Rubber Grips for SP-01 - Recommendations Please
« on: January 31, 2019, 09:38:48 AM »
Hey all.

I'm wanting to try some rubber grips for my SP-01. Something similar to the stock rubber grips but a little thicker. Similar shape to the stock too where they have the palm swell.

I know LOK and VZ make some. Just not sure if they are a little thicker than stock.

Aren't the palm swells by each made of rubber? Maybe I'm mistaken.

No sir, they're G10. I recommend palm swell bogies from LOK. I wear 2XL gloves and put these on all of my 75's.

Thank you for correcting me. I'm gonna check out the LOK. Thank you.

Do they come in different grip patterns and if so, which do you have?

They do. Bogies is the most aggressive/grippy.

Awesome. Thank you. One more request. Anyway you can measure the widest point on the grip on the gun? Like this pic. The width from one side to the other.

Hard to tell if they're wider than the stock grips.

Thank you. Hugely appreciate the help. Looking at the Bogies vs. the Loks, I like they the Bogies grip patter extends all the way to the rear of the grip. The Loks don't.

I tried aluminium grips and I don't know how people run with them. They look nice, but for action shooting they seem to suck. At least for me.

You can get LOK grips in several textures and widths for the 75/SP-01 and the Shadow 2. The Shadow 2 grips fit the SP-01 but are narrower at the top. I have both and will measure and take pics.

Got home late and almost forgot. I measured with grips installed on three different frames, maybe some slight variance between them.
Measurements were taken at very top edge of grips, middle across the screw holes, bottom at narrowest point.
OEM:
Top- 1.38"
Mid- 1.41"
Bot- 1.28

Palm Swell Bogies
Top- 1.42"
Mid- 1.46"
Bot- 1.34"

Shad 2 style  Palm Swell Bogies
Top-1.2"
Mid- 1.47"
Bot- 1.26"

 Not much difference between the OEM and STD Palm Swell Bogies, but the difference in grip is very significant.
 The S2 style grips are noticably thinner up top of course, I prefer the thicker ones. You can contact Jason at LOK and he'll make grips thicker if you ask.

You are awesome my friend. Thank you so much for this. Very helpful. Leaning toward the Bogies. I think the slightly wider and more aggressive texture is what I'm looking for. Thank you again.

Recieved my grips today. Really like them. The grip on them is intense. Really good. Thanks again for all the help.
