Grip Removal Technique (SR22P)

One of my grips was impossible to grab and pull off without getting a hernia.

To remove the grip, I looked at the grip that wasn't on the gun to see where the lock tabs were located. Then, I slipped some zip ties between the frame and the grip near the locking tabs. I only needed one zip tie on each side and they were roughly 3/8".

The infamous sr22p grip removal dilema. Good job finding a solution that worked for you. I have read about people heating them, or prying them off with a screwdriver. I determined where the tabs were as you did. Then squeezed with my thumb at the top back of the grip and my finger below the trigger guard and pulled down.

I saw a video tip about pulling the grip off. Pull at the bottom of the grip. If you grasp at the top all you do is lock it in harder. I was able to do it with persistent pulling twisting etc from the bottom and it finally gave in. Thanks, never thought of the zip ties.

For the life of me I couldn't get the grip off my SR22 when I first got it. I tried everything I could think of, short of heating it up. I kept the smaller grip on for a few weeks, but really wanted the fatter grip on it. So one night I had my wife hold onto the pistol, while I pulled on the grip and it slipped right off. Guess I need two extra hands.

Found this video on YouTube. Maybe not the best video but the idea of rocking the grip back and forth while pulling on the grip worked for me. Skip to about the 2:20 mark to see the technique.

I must have lucked out because I can get my grips on and off with zero problems.
