For $25.00 I figured I couldn't go wrong picking these up as I don't trust myself to do any sort of stippling myself.

Over all I am very pleased with the back strap. It adds a very tacky feel and makes drawing from a holster that much easier (especially from a Concealed Carry Holster). the stippling is done with a perfect blend of softness as well as stiffness. Was able to fine a hundred rounds with no damage to my skin, they also add an element to gun control and recoil management that is a big upgrade from the stock back strap.

The only negative thing I could think of is they come a little dirty. This I am sure is due to the stippling process itself and is easily cleaned up using an old toothbrush and some soap and water.

My pictures are horrible and I apologize for that but I lack proper lighting...

Interesting. Where did you get them from? Hows the fit? Do they snag on clothing?
I have an M&P 9mm and the grip is ok for me but maybe these would be better. What sizes do they come in? I'm using the medium now. Thanks.

Sorry, I see now you got them from the manufacturer and not a retailer like Midway.

Hehe, remember to wash them good before you put them on. They are dirty dirty...

They don't seem to snag and you can get any size backstrap you desire...
