Installation of Hogue wraparound grips.

This took less than 5 minutes and feels GREAT. I can tell I am going to like these are lot better than the factory grips.

Step one is to get the correct Allen wrench and remove the existing grips. The screws are rather short; take care not to drop or lose them.

Next, line up the Hogue grip screw holes with the same holes your old grips were held in with those short screws. Now take your Allen wrench and tighten all 4 screws in a torque sequence. Take care not to over tighten the screws.

And that's it. I will be shooting my gun soon to try them out. I love the way they feel.

Rubber grips always seem to function well.

UPDATE: I ran a few magazines through the Micro 9 last night. The grips were a but upgrade for me, worth every penny. The gun us shooting and working better, it seems to need a little "break in" time.

Tom Kat,
If you decide to sell to get rid of the Kimber grips let me know.
I would be interested in purchasing.

I put a Hogue wrap-around on my old M457. Wish I'd have done it years ago. Comfortable, easy to shoot and Hogue's CS is outstanding!
