So after owning Hatsan AT44 rifles I've come to learn these stock are very slippery. On those cold days when I have to wear gloves, I found these guns slipped around a lot causing me to almost drop it when picking them up. So I needed to have some type of texturing to the fore grip, so I looked and looked and finally came up wih something simple that work Great!

So here's what the final product looks like.

Great invisible product for many applications requiring some grip.

so.... you hold the rifle with your feet now?

But seriously what a great idea. I bet you could wrap that on pistol grips as well.

Good to know I found something vey useful for airgunning. I've been using it a little every night and it wonderful. I also put a strip around the butt stock at the butt pad, for those grab and go situation.

I think the package ran about $7.

Pretty slick! Who says you have to spend hours with a gouge.
