Happy with the stock A2? Find an aftermarket grip that gives you more comfort or control? Share with the Hive! :)

Personally, I run an A2 with the finger nub filed off (it didn't fit well with my hand), and a cut down A2 with "Quicksteel" A*B putty on the front to form finger grooves.

I just have the basic Magpul moe. I always found the basic a2 grips to be on the small side, and I never much liked finger nubs.

I was going to buy the Miad grip, but the store didn't have it in stock the day I was there. I just settled for the Moe and figured I'd buy the Miad later. Never did though, the grip just works for me.

It's the most vertical grip I've found. I shoot very squared off one click out, stock on outside of pectoral, nose to charging handle.
Less vertical grips put my wrist in a cramped up position. I've been laughed at before but I still think a shallow forward angle similar to a mild "z" grip would be great.

A couple of friends have talked about using more vertical grips on precision rifles.
I've got another AR coming together using a cheap grip with more "Quicksteel" putty on the front, planning on placing the front of the grip about even with the trigger. I figure pistol grips are easy enough to replace if it doesn't work.

I won mine at a shoot. I would have a hard time paying that for one.

Original Ergo grips, I just like the way they feel.

I have a couple of Falcon Ergo grips, a couple of MOE's, and one MIAD. I tried the Mission First Tactical grip, which I thought was really nicely made but the finger grooves were spaced too far apart for my girly little hands, so I don't use it. (I should probably put that into the pay it forward thread).
The A2 bothers me for the same reason, that hump between the fingers is in completely the wrong spot for me. The Ergo grip has such mildly formed bumps that it feels fine. I like the MIAD and the MOE just fine. I like to keep a baggie with some spare earplugs and another baggie with two 123 batteries in the grip area.

I went with a MIAD for two reasons: first, I have XXL bearpaw sized hands, so most grips are excessively small for me. Secondly, I hate the A2 finger rest, and nubs on AR grips in general, so my goal was to get a fat grip that didn't have one. The way to do that was the MIAD, which I did about four years ago. Haven't bothered to find another as of yet.

MOE on one, Cav-15 grip on the Cav-15 lower, obviously. :P

I've stock with the basic A2 grip because it fits my hands fairly well, and it was very cheap. It's pretty tempting to get a basic MagPul MOE grip, but I can't really justify buying it for myself when what I've got already works for me.

My lightweight carbine has an old school Duckbill grip on it . I hate the gap between the grip and triggerguard and this fixes the problem .

My midlength has a MIAD that I traded into , I like it for the storage .

Both grips have a small section of bicycle intertube on the as I find it helps a bit when your hands are sweaty or wet .

Is it what was posted in the other thread?

I personally like the BCM grip now, and plan to change all my ARs over to it.. Looks quite similar, but for normal sized hands.

One of them, yes.

I currently have duckbill grips on both of my ARs. I like the slightly longer grip, no finger notch, and the bridge over the gap in the trigger guard. Plus, I always have liked the deep checkering on the A2 grip which the duckbill retains. The rough texture on the front of the grip is also a nice touch.

Found a cheap A1 grip for my "retro-ish" build, goes nice with my A1 stock and upper receiver.

Plain old A2 here.

Round count on my Colt is 1500. Seems to be working just fine.

Basic. One ergo. Doesn't bother me either way.

I installed a MagPul MIAD with the medium back panel on my SCAR 17S before I deployed. I liked the feel, so I'll probably do the same on my 16S when I get back to the States.

You could always try a TD flip-grip. :ooh:

Standard MOE grip for me. I never liked the A-2 grip, the little nub never fit my hands.
