Custom Silicone Barrel Grip

After making carbon fiber Prophecy shells, I decided to try my hand at something else...barrel grips! I've only made one so far, one more in the works.











As you might have guessed, I have a thing for the blue/black combo.

Not something I would use, but that looks like a pretty professional product.

Just curious are they a PITA to put on/take off? I was sent a fabric cover on one of my barrel backs and it was surprisingly difficult to remove. Granted it probably varies with what barrel you are using.

Thanks! Actually it fits really well but isn't difficult to remove. I originally formed it to a Lurker barrel, then slipped it on a stock Mini barrel and even though the fit wasn't exact, it was really snug. Nice and grippy too, for those guys w big hands who like to wrap the barrel and front of the gun.

With the way you are going I'm starting to think you are the offspring of Simon...

Now there's a compliment! Haha...much appreciated, but I'm no mechanical engineer, although I'm starting to wonder if I should have been since I do enjoy designing and prototyping.
