    They came in the mail yesterday. Very happy with the purchases especially for how cheap they are. I had my doubts on the Talon grips, but they are actually a really cool product and blend in well with the overall firearm. I bought the rubber texture grips. I've never had a problem gripping with the stock frame, but these definitely add a nice feel and grip to the frame. The Pearce extension is also a very comfortable mod. Looking forward to the range so I can try them out!

    Nice. Report back on those sights. Been doing a lot of research on sights and trying to decide on the ones I want. I've had the Trijicon HD in mind for my next addition, along with the PRP trigger.

    Talon Grips - Talon Grips for Glock, XD, XDM, Kahr, Ruger and Kel-Tec Pistols. Free Shipping!

    If you have the .45 xdm this is the extension that will work on it - [ame=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0014JM3W4/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00]Amazon.com: Pearce Grips PG-XD45 Springfield Armory XD Series Grip Extension: Sports & Outdoors[/ame]

    Pearce doesn't have a .45 extension that exactly matches the grip texture, but this is the only that fits with no problems.

    I have a 9mm sub compact. I can't stand how my pinky falls off with the 13rd mag. Hoping this might cure the problem.

    Gotta say, I think the grips look a lot better for the compact than for the full size. The full size doesn't cover as much of the grip. Looks good! I do like mine.

    I really love mine, I used the cuts that I had trimmed, and put it on my pearce extension where my finger sits.

    How hard was it to install these badboys? I really want some of these grips cause my XD45 service could use some extra grip texture... The site said it reqires trimming for the rubber texture? Did they? If so I'll probably get the granulated texture to avoid messing it up...

    It was very easy to trim to fit the rubber texture version on my XDm 3.8 compact. I cut maybe 1/8" off where it wraps around the back of the grip. But I'm pretty sure I only needed to due to the fact that I put the smaller backstrap on. Once you "dry" fit it around the gun before installing it, you'll see where it might neeod minor trimming. I used the small trimmed rectangles and put them on my pearce extension where my finger rests. Figured it can't hurt to have a tiny bit more grip there.
