Decal Grip offers no nonsense grip enhancement, and reflects a tactical practicality that is valued by the tactical officer and the recreational shooter alike. Adhesive backed, pre-cut panels adhere to the frame and slide for a superior grip in the most extreme conditions imaginable without increasing bulk. They are perfect for both the duty weapon and for everyday carry. Easy to install, just peel and stick. They are just as easily replaced or removed. Extremely durable and resistant to most solvents and oils. Especially developed for the new generation of polymer frame pistols (Glock, Heckler and Koch USP, Springfield Armory XD, XDM, HS2000, Kahr P and PM, Magpul MIAD and MOE, Taurus Millennium PT, etc.). Looks OEM. The trend in modern handgun design incorporates a polymer frame that is lightweight, but tends to get slippery when wet or sweaty; severely affecting your grip and accuracy. Decal Grip's specially designed panel additions provide a positive grip surface, improving your grip in wet, dry, hot or cold environments. Decal Grip is recognized by many Law Enforcement Officers for its proven enhanced grip, and is available in two types of textures: Sand, and Synthetic Rubber. Approved for use in IDPA and IPSC competition and used by many Law Enforcement and Military Agencies around the world.

Awesome bargain enhancement for your XD (or probably any polymer framed pistol). Very grippy but not damaging to your hand when actually firing. An unforeseen benefit is it aided in reminding me to use good (or at least consistent) grip fundamentals.
Application was easy in spite of poor and conflicting instructions. Two application diagrams were included in the packaging but neither seemed consistent with each other or to the way the die-cut pieces came. (pictures uploaded)
The obviously shaped pieces match the proprietary molding on the XD grip but I still have some rectangles that I think are for the forward slide on larger XD models. You could use the pieces in other places or on magazines I guess if you're using this kit on the subcompact.
Pieces I really liked but hadn't considered when making the purchase were the slide decals and a piece on the bottom of the trigger guard.
In spite of the lacking instructions I really like this...
This item really helped to improve my grip. I like that fact that the grip is separated and comes as separate pieces, I can place the pieces exactly where I need them. The rubber texture provides excellent grip and did not seem to snag clothing as much as the previous 'sand-paper' type grip I used. It fits really well. I like to lay out all the pieces on the pistol first (with the backing still attached) so I can make sure everything fits well and see where I need to stretch and pull to make sure the grips stick as well as possible.
The grip will not fit the exact areas stippled on the stock Glock, it places grip there, AND all of the other places it should be. When I tried to place the grips exactly where the stock stippling is, the grip did not lay out correctly, and was an odd fit.
It's a huge improvement over stock and allows me to keep a decent grip even if I were to pick up the gun with a soapy hand (Chris Costa grip test). I really prefer these grips...
These fit the Springfield XD SA-DA .45 perfectly and come pre cut to fit the XD SA-DA .45 Compact to. I originally got some free scrap skateboard deck tape from a shop by my house and although it is super grippy, it will wear a hole through your clothes or through your body in no time if you use this on a concealed carry weapon. The rubber texture decal, on the other hand, is still very aggressive against the skin but not unbearable or destructive. I would recommend a t-shirt between you and the grip though. The decals are very adherent and aren't going anywhere when applied correctly. After you clean the grips thoroughly with isopropyl alcohol, you really need to press firmly over every part of the decals to get good contact. Then I would recommend a 24 hour curing period before you use the gun. The stock .45 Compact grips are fairly big in girth and pretty slippery in my hands. These decals really add a lot of traction with very little bulk making it much more comfortable to...
