When a company introduces a new product, sometimes it catches your eye because it's unique. The Survival Grips fore-end grip is certainly unique...

Constructed of an aircraft-grade aluminum finger guard housed in a polymer shell, the Survival Grip foregrip promises to increase stability and control over a longarm so equipped. With the Survival Grip in place, the support hand has firm purchase on the distal end of the longarm, with the added security of a protective layer of metal over the exposed fingers.

Okay, that's as serious as I can get. Really, it's a set of brass (actually aluminum) knuckles inside a vertical foregrip. You've got to admit, that piques your interest, doesn't it? If for no other reason than to ponder the many reasons why one might wish for a melee weapon on the end of their fighting carbine. In any case, if you're looking for a fore-end grip that stands out from the crowd, the Survival Grip is pretty novel.

Survival Grips come in a wide variety of options and finishes, with the standard grip in basic black with black aluminum insert. There's a zombie green option, a chrome option, and even spikes on the individual finger guards are another variant.

MSRP: $59.99 and up.

Fightin' Iron: Lever Gun

At the mid-point of the 19th century, the world of firearms was changing fast. The main service rifle was still a cumbersome single-shot of .69 caliber. It worked on cap, ball and powder, delivered a massive blow and produced clouds of smoke. True, it got the job done.
