the regular A2 pistol grips just feels way too small.

I've felt the ergo grip, and it's an improvement forward/backward, but feels too skinny.

the hogue just doesn't feel any bigger than the A2.

is there a better option? or something that I could wrap the A2 grip with that would beef it up a little and maybe make it tackier at the same time?

The Lone Star Ordinance trap door grip is excellent for large hands! I put a piece of bicycle innertube around mine to make it even more grippy and bigger. Too bad they're out of business. But you can still find a few floating around here and there.

I've owned a MagPul MIAD for several weeks now and it is great for these big paws.

G27, TD, or MIAD

I use the SPR grip. The G27 is almost as big and fairly comfortable. My next choice is the MIAD.

Another +1 on the Sierra Precision grip, available from MSTN.

I wear a size 12/13 glove and have had no problems with the Hogue grips. YMMV.....Trapfan

I've tried a handful of grips, the G27 is the one I'd ended up going with.

Havent looked back, this is the best of the best.

I used Falcon Ergo Grips for six years. Last September I tried Tandgo Down Battle Grips on a couple of my rifles. Since I got my first Magpul MIAD full kit last month I've switched all my AR's to MIAD grips.

You can store batteries inside them?

No. I'm not using the internal compartment to store anything at the moment.

The full and basic kits have the fundamental capability to store three rounds in the grip. Fixtures for battery or spare bolt storage are optional, and cost around $15. Both kits have interchangeable front and rear straps.

The full kit comes with a front strap that has a trigger guard shaped liked the metal Magpul Winter Trigger Guard molded into it. The basic kit lacks the trigger guard front strap. The price difference between the kits is about $10. The metal Winter Trigger Guard runs about $20.

Since I linked an image from his website, I should mention that I bought mine from Denny at GTS. No connection other than being a happy customer.

ETA: One thing I took into consideration is that the MIAD's are ambidexterous grips. I have ambi mag catches and selectors. Sometimes I shoot left handed. Plus, I do have friends who are lefties.

NEGATIVE on the SPR grip.

I have two! Oh, it's a fine grip for a target rifle.

Have you ever tried to shoot it with your left hand (weak hand)? If not, better try it right away before recommending it. If you ever have to shoot with your left hand, you will be much happier with a grip that does NOT have a right-handed thumb shelf.

Get something like the MAGPUL or other ambidextrous grip. You will be happier in the long run.
