Hogue Inc. announced a new tactical pistol grip for AR15 and M16 shooters. Structurally crafted to be one of the most light weight grips of its type, and ergonomically engineered to be the most comfortable and convenient fit, the Hogue AR15 / M16 15 degree vertical grip is a new choice for any type of tactical rifle aficionado.
Strategically crafted by Hogue's engineers, this AR15 / M16 grip is designed to perform. "When designing this product, ergonomics was the number one priority, it just had to feel right. And of course, aesthetics was also a main concern; It has to look good too," said Hogue Research and Development's Machine Shop Supervisor, Gary Flynn. In terms of performance, this grip is ideal for any AR15 / M16 user. "It's for military, for custom builders, for anyone really. And it still feels comfortable for guys who just want to shoot."
Compared to the standard 30 degree angle for AR15 / M16 grips, the 15 degree angle allows for a comfortable and more natural hand position when entering combat. The stacking formation often used by the military in close quarter combat requires the rifle to be square with the chest and for the elbows to be tight to the body, forcing the hand into a sharper angle. The Hogue AR15 / M16 15 degree vertical grip easily meets the hand exactly in the position it needs to be, making grip comfort effortless for the shooter.
This grip also fits into one of the lightest weight classes on the market, weighing in at a mere 2.3 ounces. It was strategically designed with a hollow center for maximum weight efficiency and is composed of the highest quality G10 material available. Additionally, there is a recessed dish behind the trigger which heightens comfort and creates a smooth transition for the finger to the trigger. In anticipation of some builders' needs, a clearance was also added in the top of the grip to allow for an upper tensioning screw installed in a lower receiver.
Hogue AR15 / M16 G10 grips are precision machined to fit securely and seamlessly to your AR15 or M16 lower, and will even fit any other firearm that uses standard AR15 / M16 grips. Hogue AR15 / M16 G10 grips come in Smooth or Piranha Grip finishes, and are available in Solid Black, G-Mascus Red Lava, G-Mascus Dark Earth, and G-Mascus Green at an MSRP range of $99.95 - $119.95.
