    I have used it. In my case, it was like the mickey mouse version of the sorcerers apprentice. I looked at all the utube videos, and did a good job of building and molding a grip for my mx-15. I have a big hand and use a precision trigger. I built the grip to put my hand forward and to fill up my hand. My scores, especially in handicap have be horrible. I felt like I was flinching, that the trigger was broken, that the gun was not staying put in it's alignment. A friend who has shot pistols competitively was telling me about hand placement and how, if improper can pull or push the shot. In desperation, I removed the rat grip and went back to a glue on palm swell and tennis rap. All was well again. The stuff works well and will not damage the gun. But you better know what your doing! I sure didn't. Bruce

    I've got small hands and have used Rat Grip to build up the front of the grip and make a palm swell. I quite like it. It ain't a thing of beauty, but it certainly is functionally beautiful to me.

    I installed a glob on my PFS. AS far as I'm concerned it works great. It took about two hours to form the material the way I wanted it, but my hand is now the same location every time. I think it gives me better control and a much better grip. One other thing, I use to use a golf glove, now I don't have to use anything.

    Don-That grip on your gun ain't much for the eyes but it sure does look comfortable to shoot. You can actually see where every finger fits. I also have to ask about the comb spacers. I don't believe i have ever seen any like that. Can you explain?

    Rat grips can be ordered from Brownell's

    I used the Sniper Kit and added another basic kit of two additional sheets. Total time was about two hours to make what you see. There is an old thread on this if you do a search.

    The comb spacers were obtained from Frank Wood. They are custom made and I can ask Frank if he is interested in making them if anyone is interested in getting a set. You will need to provide the height and hole diameter.

    My grip is much more convential looking than Don's. I got the kit with two sheets of Rat Grip material. I've done two grips and have about half of one sheet left--will probably add one small piece to one of the grips tonight to pull the little finger forward a bit more.
