Hogue Inc.expands the line of HandALL grip sleeves with a brand new variant: the Hogue HandALL Beavertail, designed for polymer pistols
Hogue's new HandALL Beavertail grip sleeves are designed to fit specific polymer frame pistols now on the market, most notably subcompact concealed carry pistols. Most of those pocket-size handguns are too small to feature replaceable grip panels or backstraps that are so common with compact, semi-compact or full-size polymer-frame pistols – which unfortunately means that they are not factory-adaptable for all hand sizes.
The Hogue HandALL Beavertail grip sleeves solve this problem in a simple and straightforward way, and at a very affordable price.
Hogue's HandALL Beavertail grip sleeve line has been engineered with models for precision fits on specific firearms.
The first offering precisely fits Smith & Wesson’s M&P Shield 9mm and .40 models, Ruger’s LC9 and Glock’s 26 and 27.
The second sleeve fits Glock’s 42 and 43.
The final sleeve is designed for Smith & Wesson’s M&P Shield 45 and Kahr Arms’ P9, P40, CW9 and CW40.
While each sleeve has been created for a precise fit on specific polymer framed firearms, they also alternatively fit many other similarly sized firearms with a fully functional and aesthetic fit.
“These sleeves also provide a very nice fit for many pistols that may not have any other alternative available on the market” said grip designer Matt Hogue.
The Beavertail Grip Sleeves are installed by slipping them over the frame of the firearm until seated into perfect position. Once installed, the HandALL sleeve provides a single finger groove for instinctive handling of the firearm. The finger groove leads into a gentle palm swell that has been carefully designed to fit naturally in the hand. The beavertail built into the grip sleeve rises high along the backstrap of the frame 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. In addition to protection and comfort, the beavertail also cushions the hand during recoil.
The HandALL Beavertail grip sleeves are manufactured out of a rubber-type elastomer compound that ages very gracefully and keeps a firm, tacky feel throughout the life of the grip. It will not harden, split or crack with age or usage.
Hogue’s HandALL Beavertail grip sleeves are sold in the United States at an MSRP of $9.95 for the black version and $10.95 for the colored versions.
So far there is no official international distribution for the Hogue HandALL Beavertail grip sleeves, but they can be purchased directly on the Hogue website; international shipment is available for this item.
