I have noticed that people have spent thousands of dollars on their weapon, but still have the stock grip on it. What gives??
I myself didn't give much thought to the grip, but once I changed it...WOW a whole world of difference.

It was the first thing I did, some folks must just like their A2 grips.

First time I picked up an AR15 while shopping for them I knew that I would be ditching the crappy A2 grip. I think I've handled pencils that are wider in diameter than that A2 grip. For target uses, I use the Sierra Precision Rifles grip and for general use I have the Ergo grip.

I changed out the grip on my Oly, I put an A2 on it! I like the A2, it works, I've never dropped the rifle so I figure it's just fine.

Personally, I prefer a G27 on my Colt 6731...

I certainly have not tried them all, but I think the Hogue is darn hard to beat.

i put a hogue grip on mine, liked it some much im ordering another one to change out on my ARMS foreward pistol grip :)
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 2:08:53 PM EDT
I like the A1 grip most of all, in second place i like the A2. I never got the feel of the Ergo Grip. I just never liked it.
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 2:20:35 PM EDT
For some reason I like the A2 grip best of all I've tried but I've never tried an Ergo grip.
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 2:21:35 PM EDT
Lots of people change the grip. You arent paying attention! Lots of people also like the stock A2. For me, it's Hogue or nothing.
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 2:36:03 PM EDT
It's a very personal, individualized thing. I love Hogue pistol grips (on pistols) and have several, but their AR grip just doesn't fit me. I have small hands (6'3", 300#, huge feet, but tiny hands - go figure... [:D] ), and the Ergo grip is the most comfortable I've found so far. I'm breaking in a couple of new BATTlegrips - comfortable so far, but the jury's still out (but I do like that battery compartment...).

I would never change my A2 grip! If it's good enough for the military, then it's good enough for me! If you want a comfortable grip, hold your pee pee!

Another vote for the Hogue.[uzi]

1. G27 grip 2. Houge / Ergo grips tie 3. A2 grip I like the soft feel of the Houge but it does not space the trigger finger correctly and does not have the beavertail to let you get a high grip. The Ergo has the beavertail but is too thin. G27 is the perfect grip for me. The only improvement would be a slightly softer material. I have rarely seen a report of someone not liking the G27 once they try it. Ergo and Houge are about 50/50. If you have not tried a G27 grip you are doing yourself a disservice.

yipper,the first purchase i make is for hogue grips. A2 are too hard.IMO.
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 3:05:54 PM EDT
I originally had the A2 stock on mine, then bought the Ergo grip. Very comfortable. Then decided on wanting to have a suppressor on my post-ban so decided on the ATF legal vertical grip. (gogogadgets.net- not on website, have to email him for info) Just like ZM weapons grip only longer and more comfortable.

This was the first mod I made! I put on a Pearce 1911 style grip. Black rubber type with finger grooves. Of course, I am a dyed in the wool 1911 FREAK.

15 years of being used to the A2

First thing I did was put a Hogue grip on my AR.

Dual Hogues on my M-4rgery. Another Hogue on my RRA Nationl Match A-2. [img]http://hstrial-sbrady.homestead.com/files/ar12.JPG[/img]

I like the A2 grip best.
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 5:39:16 PM EDT
I change 'em out so often I bought the long T-handle allen wrench set from Sears. Hogues are my favorite, but the Pachmeyer (once you get past it's strange looks) is also very good. DILBERT_556

That's okay, I don't shoot competivly anyways. It's also a flat-top so it's a double no-no [:)]

I like the Tango Down BattleGrip
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 7:19:27 PM EDT
The standard PG was the FIRST thing to go, after I bought mine; I have long fingers, and I just can't get decent trigger control with the A1 or A2 grip.
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 7:43:07 PM EDT
Hogues on my ARs. Hogues panels and slip overs on my pistols. I think they have the perfect feel.

Four Ergo grips on three rigs!
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 8:36:04 PM EDT
my vote is for the ambi Ergo (cuz Hogue doesn't make anything in Coyote Brown and it's just too cool not to have....)
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 8:44:17 PM EDT
Hogue grips for me.
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 9:31:33 PM EDT
I prefer the A2. The finger grips on the Hogue make it more difficult to grab in a hurry to me, and the others look like a silly revolver grip.

Depends on the gun, what grip I have. I have a JP laminated wood stock on one gun, that is used only for long distance shooting. I have TangoDown battle grips on the guns that are used for fun. I have Hogue on a couple of guns that fit between play toys and long distance rifles.
Link Posted: 5/28/2003 6:11:13 AM EDT
I have the Hogue on my M4gery, I really like the feel of it...funny, 'cos I have SMALL hands, but still like the feel of the Hogue. I've got an Ergo grip, but I don't like it...it feels too long front to back, and too narrow side to side. It's sitting in a drawer as we speak. I'm about to order another Hogue grip I think...although with a couple of the other ones in the Brownell's catalog for less than $20, I'm tempted to try them.
Link Posted: 5/28/2003 7:38:55 AM EDT
I love the feel of the Hogue, but it is a little small in diameter near the top. My wife thinks it the best thing since sliced bread, so it found a home on her carbine. I just went with the G27 on all of my ar's. I never tried the Ergo, but aside from that the G27 is the best I've used.
