Hogue Slip On rubber grips

I had mine on my USP for a bit and want to put it on my glock 19, though it got a bit stretched out. anyone have any suggestions on shrinking it?

Cheers!

might want to try a heat gun, but I don't know if that would work.

Also, might want to consider grip tape (they make some specific for the plastic guns).

I haven't tried it yet, but on another forum several guys used a bicycle tire tube. Cut to length, then stretch it over the grip. One tube would last you a long time.

Hoque grips...

I've put on several sets of these with the help of a hair dryer. The heat really helps when your trying to get them on. And they seem to snug right up when they cool.
