After seeing a number of other threads about aftermarket grips for the Steyr, i thought i'd make a post to explain the differences between a few of them, try to make things easier for folks who are trying to decide. I myself went through 4 different grips on my Steyr M40-A1, and those are the ones i'll explain here - the trusty inner tube, the Hogue pistol grip, and the Hogue tool grip. I'll be stealing pics from other threads on the forum to illustrate, since i don't have old pics of my Steyr anymore. The trusty Inner Tube This has 2 big advantages - cheap, and easy. One tube will provide enough material for a number of screw ups, or a number of handguns. (Photo by Kraigster414) The cons - They get a bit slippery when wet, also - some of them do not react well to solvents (sometimes i get lazy and use carburator cleaner for weapons maintenance). As a purely personal preference, i do not like how smooth they are. The Hogue Pistol Grip Easy to get, many gun stores carry them. Many people like them. Pretty standard, but i didn't keep mine on for long, so i don't know many other good things to say about em. (Photo by mugdava) Cons - This pistol grip has its own finger grooves, as well as a slight palm swell on the side of the grip, and with the finger grooves already on the M40 - this makes for a HUGE grip. My hand isn't that big. If you do go this route, make SURE to get the Large version, as no amount of stretching would get the Small version on my Steyr (i tried). The Hogue Tool Grip I honestly can't say enough good things about this grip. No finger grooves, fits the Steyr perfectly, adds a bit of texture and width to the grip, doesn't get slippery when wet. As soon as i got this thing on, it hasn't come off. As an added bonus - it is safe for any solvent/oil/grease/cleaner i've ever found. (Photo by Syntax360) It is important to note that this thing comes in 2 sizes - Small and Large. The small can work, but is an absolute nightmare to get on. Many posts are around about having to boil it, lube it with hairspray, prying it on with tools - I tried, and wrestled with it for about 10 minutes and it was still only halfway on, then said screw it and got the large size. Went on perfectly with minimal effort, and moves very very little - less than 1/16th of an inch. Putting hairspray under it could fix this completely.
