Well I got one of the new Umbrella Corp grips to try out. If you haven't seen it yet the grip has a non-traditional angle much like the newer Bravo Co grips. The key differences between it and the B Co is that it has more width, a larger 'backstrap', and it is left smooth without any texture. This keeps the cost down and it allows the user to texture it any way they like. I took a soldering iron to mine as you can see in the pics.


I have already used it in a match, and I believe the angle is superior to the traditional M16 grip angle. It is more natural and works better with human body mechanics. When you put your arm out, you don't naturally angle your wrist like you do when you're gripping an M16 grip. This is especially helpful if you have a shorter stock, or use your stock more collapsed.

It replaced a MOE + grip, which I liked, but I found that if the rubbery grip got wet it would feel 'slimey'.

So that's my quick and dirty assessment of the UC grip. Does it feel kind of lame having a video game themed grip? You don't really notice it. In my opinion it's worth a try for $18-$20.

Thanks. I have been thinking about one of these. Does it have storage?
