I have never used grips before so it is very different from what I'm used to. I just seem to have gripping problems with the 27. Has to do with the extra recoil because I can shoot the 26 without issues. I really think this should help tho. I will findout this weekend!kodiak said:My opinion is as long as it improves your handling, thats all that matters. Shoot it then make up your mind. You might just be too used to seeing the grip bare. Talons look just like that.
