Get a Grip!

I agree with what Josejuan said in the video… the stock grips on the Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory leave a LOT to be desired. I have been a huge fan of Hogue’s rubberized pistol grips for years. The rubber on the Tandemkross hiveGrip is somewhat similar to Hogue’s proprietary rubber and feels very good in my hands. This SW22 has a fluted Volquartsen bull barrel, so enough mass to absorb much of the modest recoil from the 22lr cartridges. However, I noticed that the pistol feels more secure in my hands with the hiveGrip’s modest palm swells, finger grooves and slightly, almost tacky feel.

Groovy, baby!

Finger grooves on the front of a pistol grip can be tricky. Glock received boatloads of hate for the hard plastic finger grooves on the Gen 4 pistols. They abandoned finger grooves on the Glock Gen 5 pistol grip, and there was much rejoicing. So, the aggressive finger grooves on the Tandemkross hiveGrip surprised me a bit. Such pronounced finger grooves tend to be a “love it or hate it” sort of thing, with little middle ground. However, Josejuan and I agree that the hiveGrip finger grooves feel natural and are a plus for the grip.
