Hogue has been, for decades, the gold standard for improving weapon control and retention. The company’s rubber overmolded products for pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns span the aftermarket as well as the OE segments in the firearm industry. Recently, Hogue introduced a new product that allows shooters and hunters to get the same tactile performance on their firearms without spending money on new furniture or tapping the services of a gunsmith.

The new Wrapter adhesive firearm grip kits from Hogue let you to upgrade your firearm easily and inexpensively.

Designed for use on polymer frame pistols and polymer or wood rifle/shotgun grips and furniture, the Wrapter is a thin grip solution that delivers Hogue’s respected OverMold technology to any firearm. The Wrapter comes in two forms—firearm-specific kits and a DIY kit. The firearm-specific kits are pre-cut and cover G1 through G3 GLOCK pistols and full-size or compact Sig Sauer P320 pistols. The DIY Wrapter kit is simply a sheet of Hogue’s rubber grip material that can be custom-cut to fit a broad range of firearm applications or other gear where grip-enhancement is required.

With kit prices at $14.95 and the DIY kit at $9.95, the Wrapter adhesive is an economic solution for getting a tenacious grip on your firearm or tactical gear.

We recently picked up a sample of both kits to see just how easily we could install the Wrapter, using the pre-cut version on a GLOCK and the DIY version on a Mossberg 500 tactical shotgun. The results? Watch the video below to see how it went down and for tips on how you can install a Wrapter kit on your firearm.
