Rubber grips should have some flex, so a rubber contact cement works but an epoxy or Gorilla glue would be a mistake. I would not use just any glue. You also need something that can be removed since some repairs need access to screws under the rubber grip.

Here is a link to Pliobond.

Nikon Service provides a replacement rubber grip with adhesive for dealers and Nikon authorized service. I think I heard it runs $40 or so.
