Wow. I know it's nothing new, but I am amazed at how comfortable it is. I don't think I'll own an AR without one.

I agree! All my ARs have Hogue grips (black and OD). In fact, I also have several pistols with Hogue grips.

The main downfall of the Hogue grip is they are too inexpensive. To have a truly high-end AR you must spend a minimum of $30 on the grip.

Mine was only $16 from Botach Tactical. Is there another one that's more expsensive? If so, what's the difference?

I love the Hogues. The shape is comfy and the texture is grippy without being rough or sticky.

Good grips, have a few of them.

My Houges are much better than the Ergo I bought. I didn't like the Ergo at all. Houge will be on all my ARs.

I've used this but it keeps falling out. www.cheaperthandirt.com/ctd/product.asp?sku=ARR%2D015&mscssid=NTTU5BPJ1QHV8HJWH1KSRA3DKKBN0P6F

Although there are other good grips out there, you pretty much summed it up in a nutshell. Hogue is best IMHO.

I love my hogue grips as well. Only one problem- that gap right at the triggerguard. I fixed it by butchering a gapper to fit. If you have the same problem, you should try it.
+1 for hogue

Not to sound stupid but how hard is it to change out grips? I would like to switch to a Hogue on my Armalite M15A2NM.
Link Posted: 8/25/2004 5:20:34 PM EST
Thanks ST5 and Breycor. The A2 grip and the Hogue are like comparing apples and oranges. "Keeps falling out" is not a good thing here. And I refuse to put "tape up grip plug" to the list of "1001 Things you can use Duct Tape on". Wish Hogue wold just produce one and sell it as a complete A2 Grip. It would cost them what, a dollar. Do a 100% mark-up on the plug, include it in the grip, and it would still very reasonable priced. Just my two cents worthh.gif

Hunt; Regarding changing grips. Remove magazine and clear weapon.
Look into the base of the present grip and you will see an Allen type screw holding the grip to the receiver body. Remove this screw and pull straight down on the grip. BE CAREFULL here, there is a small spring that pushes on the detent for the safety. KEEP TRACK OF THIS SPRING. Place the spring into the small hole for it in the new grip and reinstall the new grip. Don't ask how I know so much about this spring, please. Dave

I've got one as well, and I'm extremely pleased. It's a shame they only come in black or green, though. Coyote brown or desert tan would be nice...

yes, as the other post says where to find 'em.

but be careful, any, and I mean ANY cleaning solvent, lube, WD-40, whatever, gets on it and you will one day look down and find it gone. It just won't stay in place.

hard to avoid solvents getting on it, but if you can it makes a great little stash for- whatever

I also agree a grip plug , or even changing the design just a touch for a trap door would be way cool.

You MAY have trouble with the spring being too long with a hogue grip. This results in the safety selector not turning. I had this problem on both my grips and solved it by snipping off one coil of the spring at a time until it fit.
Link Posted: 8/26/2004 10:44:08 AM EST
All 3 of mine have Hogue's too.

Is this grip any larger than an A2?

Alright, you've talked me into it. This will be my first mod. Now, who has the link to somewhere I can buy one?

+2 ... I had to trim both of springs. Probably 2-3 coils each.

Since this post I have aquired a DPMS grip plug and so far it is working well with the Houge grip.

The standard A2 grip that came with me Bushmaster was rubbin' raw my fingers. So the Hogue grip was my first and best mod to date. I can shoot all day now with it on; what a huge difference just changing out the grip made. The Hogue grip made shooting the AR even more enjoyable.
