Do you have big hands? I recently put a Hogue grip on mine, seems to help.
not really, but for sure too big for the Hellcat. I thought about the Hogue but im worried about it not lasting a good amount of time as the Talon. How do you like yours? And have you had any experience with Hogue before and how long before it gets loose on the grip?

I haven't put any rounds through my Hellcat with the Hogue on it yet. I have no concerns about it loosening up, it's difficult to get on and you have to put it in hot water so that it will stretch to fit. I have the same Hogue on other pistols for over twenty years and they have never loosened. I've had one on my Buckmark for longer than that, with 10s of thousands of rounds through it with no issue. I am a fan of Talon, but that won't help if you need more girth for it to feel right.

youre right it wont help. 20 years is a long time. Maybe its worth the try

@ddpm87 Glad you are liking the Hellcat...
I see a stick-on Talon grip & Apex trigger kit
What brand of optic & can you co-witness the sights, = see both the iron front & rear + the red dot?

I need a nap as I'm taking my youngest son to see Weird Al Yankovic later at the Iroquois Ampitheater

Yea i like it. I finally sighted the red dot earlier. Thats a Riton MPRD 2 optic. Its not bad and yes it does cowitness. Thats just an Apex trigger shoe. Bought it mainly for looks lol. I didnt want to change much on the gun since its my carry.

I wouldn't have felt good about the mod to the sight but only paid $80 shipped for that Romeo Zero & the seller had another one that I passed on...
Should have bought it too
I have another on my SIG P365XL & that gave it a new metal shroud & didn't use it on the Hellcat because it would have raised the sight up the thickness of the metal shroud = right around 1mm

I have a new "We the People" IWB holster coming for the SIG, due any day now
Haven't carried it yet because I don't have a good holster for it but did find this IWB Clip holster for it in the mean time

How much better is the trigger now with the Apex Trigger kit? VS Factory as far as pre travel overtravel reset & pull weight etc.
Inquiring minds want to know
