Kensight Sharkskin Grips

Post by LateBoomer on Fri Apr 24, 2015 10:37 am

Does anyone else use these?  Stumbled in them looking for a cheap set for a 1911 project and holy moley these things have bite. Almost like using 120 grit sandpaper. Not the best carry grips but pretty outstanding for our purposes. 

And if they ever break you can use them for light woodworking projects. Smile

+1 really like mine,
I have them on all my bullseye guns they are made of polymer and they do grip well. Got them from Brownells for $20 a set.

Hi Late, I use them on my 1911;  my son has them on his Greg Derr 1911.

We both use them and love them. They improved my hold.  It's too bad

that Midway USA raised the price. Midway's price used to be $19.95. Suspect

A couple of older posts, I have them, wouldn't change them for anything.   Great grips!  I tried the VZ and immediately went back to the sharkskin from Kensight.  Make sure you get black, the other colors do not have the same amount of traction.


My only complaint is that I wish they made a full length version for those of us with mag-wells.

Brownell's has great prices!

Thinking of buying a set - how comfortable are these to shoot with after an hour or so?

I would like to like the sharkskin grips, but they are too thin for me.  Even with the sharkskin texture, the gun feels loose in my hand because of the thinness of the grip.

Good friends at CMM can take care of that with some 1911 stock spacers Wink

I have 60-90 grit silicon carbide that I applied with JB Weld to my grips.  They work well.  I have considered the sharkskin grips in the past.  Anything for some more grip!

Shark Skin or plain jane Harretts are the way to go! I wrote this article on grips.

David Sams talked me into Sharkskins.  Man are they grippy.  And cheap too at $20 a set.
