First Look: Mission First Tactical Engage AR-15 Pistol Grip

posted on January 5, 2018
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different grip options on the market designed for AR-15 rifles, giving shooters all imaginable combinations of size, shape, color, weight and more. With the new Mission First Tactical Engage AR-15 Pistol Grip, the company examined many of the available options today and combined the best elements into a duty-ready design.

The Mission First Tactical Engage AR-15 Pistol Grip is designed to provide AR owners with an enhanced grip profile that improves the amount of control that users have over one-handed operations with their rifle. The grip features a grooved back strap that works with a gentle finger swell on the leading edge of the grip in order to ensure solid support over the rifle.

An added benefit of the grooved, textured surface is that it's much easier to maintain control and perform one-handed operations in damp environments or with gloved hands. The grip provides all of these benefits while also being slim enough for users to easily reach the controls located on the lower receiver.

Located at the front of the Mission First Tactical Engage AR-15 Pistol Grip is a small tab protrusion, which is designed to bridge the gap often found at the bottom of a mil-spec AR-15 receiver's trigger guard. This gap can add to a shooter's discomfort, particularly during long-term use, and this tab eliminates all issues with the gap. On AR rifles that use an aftermarket trigger guard without any gaps, the tab can be easily removed and the pistol grip used without issue.

The grip is designed for use on all AR-15, M16, M4 and HK4 rifles and is available in black, gray, scorched dark earth and foliage green colors. The overall height of the grip is 5.007 inches, length measures 3.026 inches and width is 1.22 inches. Total weight is 2.4 ounces. The suggested retail price on the Engage pistol grip starts at $19.99.
