    I think it may be Rat Grips. Anyway, the link is above so you can see if that's what you are looking for.

    This is "dverna's" gun from here on ts.com

    smokit,

    The Rat grip material can be taken off with no damage to the stock. It is easily molded to whatever configuration you desire. I have had it on for about 10 months and am pleased with it.

    About the only downside (besides being ugly), could be, if left on for a long period of time, the finish will not be affected by UV and will not "fade" like the rest of the gun.

    PM me if you have any questions.

    Don Verna

    I have 2 of the rubber grip add ons that you are asking about but i can not remember who made them and they are glued onto 2 stocks of mine. They are kinda like a rubber wedge shape that fills in the pistol grip area.
    I have not seen them offered anywhere in a while. They do not stick as they are you you have to glue them or tape them and that is often not a good idea. The rat grips on the other hand you can heat and take off or reshape as you want. I also recently bought one of the $100 kits but have not yet molded it on my gun.
    I did not like that flat on the bottom so I cut it off but am not sure how that is going to turn out.
    I think most people would be happy with the less costly sheets and you can cut them into smaller peaces and then make up the grip shape that works best. I plan on trying a few smaller peaces to shape and then covering them with one larger peace to get it like I want. good luck, randy
