Hexmag Advanced Tactical Grip in FDE

Numerous companies have addressed the need for different grip angles on the AR-15 platform, such as Magpul's SL series or Bravo Company's Gunfighter, but Hexmag's Advanced Tactical Grip goes one step further: It allows three different grip angles in one grip.

Using a two-piece grip, it installs slightly different than traditional pistol grips. The receiver mount fits onto the lower receiver, then the grip itself is screwed in place. This has the advantage on installation of having less to hold onto while trying to get the safety detent spring in place without bending it unduly. Once the grip has been put over the mount and the attachment screw partially tightened, one of three different grip angles can be chosen: 17-, 25- and 33-degree angles are possible.

The 17-degree position gives a shorter length-of-pull for close-quarters work. The 25-degree is the traditional AR-15 grip, while the 33-degree angle allows a higher hold for those that prefer it. Best of all, should you want to change the angle, you don't have to swap out grips, just loosen the grip screw slightly and choose a different angle.

MSRP: $27.99. Also available in black.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
