Ya, I originally got this, which is similar:

But it was too thin. I wanted something that added girth (insert joke here ...)

the tape for the sport bats is a really good solution, and it could be replaced with new tape easily.
I like that ideal, very good.

Do you have a link to the original post or to the cover he put on? I am wondering how he got it on the grip ...

Anyone here looked into chopping their gunfighter pro extension? going to disassemble mine tonight and see how difficult it'd be to hack ~1" or so off of either end.

Thanks, Sokol1. Unfortunately, I can't see any of the images without registering!

In any case, from what I can make out, it seems that he got the grip one by stretching it over bottom. Which cannot be done (I speculate) to the Gunfighter KG-12, due to the palm rest.

He add this cover in Gladiator, but in Gunfighter seems more easy because you can remove the grip from base, remove the palm rest, insert the bicycle cover and attach palm rest back.

Gladiator has the same palm rest - the guy remove for some reason, maybe aesthetics.

Ah, did not realize that you could remove/put back the palm rest in Gunfighter! That would indeed make it a lot easier.
